Hint: It’s not socks and undies.

Father’s Day is a great opportunity to elevate yourself to “favourite child” status. You simply have to get Dad a gift that he actually wants. Why not think outside the box and give him an experience he’ll love? Imagine your dad behind the wheel of a V8 race car, or learning to fly a helicopter. If you’re feeling generous, go in with your siblings and take this opportunity to help Dad tick something off his bucket list. Here are a couple of unique Father’s Day gift ideas to get you started. And with 5 year voucher expiry, you can give him something to look forward to, ready to be enjoyed when the time’s right.

Go gourmet

Beer, wine, BBQ experiences – we’ve got them all. Send Dad on a tour of his favourite brewery. Gift him the chance to make a batch of homebrew that’s actually drinkable! If he’s into wine more than beer, we have loads of wine tours and tastings available.

Go on a lap around the race track

Whether it’s a V8 race car or a Lamborghini you can’t go wrong with a driving experience. Set Dad up behind the wheel of a supercar. If you think he’ll have more fun learning from the experts, gift him a hot lap so he can see how it’s really done. Get his engine revving with an experience he’ll remember forever.
