Father’s Day is almost upon us here in Australia, taking place on Sunday 3rd September this year. If you are struggling to come up with an idea on what to get your father here are some gifts that are sure to inspire you, no matter what your dear old dad likes to do.

For the father who loves his beer
Nothing goes quite with the idea of a classic Aussie dad than a good old stubby of beer. But just because the classic idea may seem bogan, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit more hipster class for your dad’s gift. Craft breweries are the new it thing, and many of them are more than happy to churn out a few bottles or tabs that will make for a perfect gift. Find out what breweries are near you and stock up on a nice gift pack, and if you can’t make it to a brewery, why don’t you have the brewery come to you and get your dad the supplies to brew his own?

For the father who slogs it out in the corporate world
Fathers grow beards – it’s just how it is. If they work in a professional environment, or want to just generally avoid looking like a member of a bikie gang, they will generally give their beards some love and attention to ensure that everything is neat and trimmed and office ready, but that doesn’t mean they have to use a simple Bic razer and aftershave and call it a day.
Thanks to Hipsters and their amazing beards there are some gourmet shaving sets out there that will really make your dad’s morning shave a treat. Head to your local Hipster store and you will be guarenteed to pick up a nice pack for your father, but if you don’t have time to get to your nearest shops you can buy these packs online, like this awesome Hold Fast Bay Rum shaving kit or even Uppercut Grooming products by General Pants Co.

For the father who loves his gadgets
A love of gagdets seem to be a quintessential dad thing; Toy Robots, TV’s, computers and random electronics seem to clutter the house and make your mum extremely annoyed. Well, why not add to your mum’s annoyance and get your dad the ultimate in gadgets – A virtual reality kit! While the technology just continues to get better and better, one of the best gifts you can give is an experience and there isn’t anything quite like a virtual reality experience.
Mobile VR kits are generally very inexpensive and are usually compatable with your Samsung or Apple smartphones, so all you need to do it download the application, slide your phone into the headset and put it on. Perfect if you want to see your dad interacting with invisible items wearing blinkers on his head!

For the father who doesn’t really want anything
Socks and undies are a classic father’s day gift because a lot of fathers don’t have the time of patience to go out of their way to get the necessities. They usually love receiving socks and underwear but there is no reason that they have to be a pair of Bond undies and socks that will fall down in a week. Australian brand Stonemen has well-designed and unique cotton underwear that has heaps of different fun patterns and styles. They are all super comfy and super trendy, so it will definitely add a bit of wow factor to your dad’s regular rotations!
