Father’s Day gifts that will knock Dad's socks off

by Elisa Parry

Give Dad a gift he’ll rave about this Father’s Day. Make this year the year that you gift an experience he’ll love. What dads want most is to spend time with their families on Father’s Day, so give your dad the gift of spending quality time together while ticking off a new experience he’s always wanted to do. You can keep things simple with a beer brewing activity (sure, this might be a subtle hint that his latest batch of homebrew wasn’t quite up to scratch). Or you could go all out and gift him something with wow-factor like a mustang ride or hot air balloon flight. Whatever you decide on, make sure that you share the experience with him.

Brew 50L of your own beer

Most dads love their beer. But let’s be honest, homebrew doesn’t always work out as planned. Why not gift dad the chance to become a master brewer with this two-day workshop where he’ll get to brew 50L of his own beer.
