Last-Minute Father’s Day Gift Guide For Every Dad

August 30, 2012

This is our ultimate “he’ll love it!” Father’s Day gift guide, guaranteed to bring a smile (maybe even a tear) to all dads…even those fussy, I-don’t-need-anything dads!

Because you want to give your dad the warm and fuzzies…

For $12 a month/$120 a year your dad will be assigned his own orphaned orangutan from the non-profit Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, who rescue and care for beautiful orangutans until they are ready to be released back into protected wilderness area. He’ll receive an adoption certificate and updates throughout the year – isn’t that beter than boring old socks and ties?

Visit to adopt an orangutan or buy a virtual gift certificate.

Because dad really, really loves his car…

Get dad a myPlates personalised number plate and he can pimp his car with his nickname, favourite colour or even his footy team. And for every blue plate sold, myPlates will donate $15 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia!

Because your dad is the ultimate gentleman…

Gentleman Jack is a super premium Jack Daniel’s whiskey and the only twice charcoal-mellowed whiskey in the world. Full bodied and textured, Gentleman Jack has a rich rewarding taste, with sweet toffee characteristics, a soft mellow expression of Jack Daniel’s. And with a personalised message on the bottle, it’ll make a gift he’ll savour for years. Each bottle retails for $54.99, and comes with engraving from now until Father’s Day at Costco Lidcombe, NSW and Costco Docklands, Victoria.

Because your dad deserves good skin, just like you…

We think these Men’s Skin Tool Boxes from uber Danish beauty brand Beauté Pacifique make the ultimate gift for all dads – no one likes dry, wrinkly skin! This kit has everything he needs to primp himself back to his glory days, including cleanser moisturiser, lotion and eye gel.
