Father’s Day is just around the corner, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to curate a list of gift ideas that are bound to put a smile on dad’s dial. From the well-groomed dad to the dad who likes to cook, cocktail enthusiast to coffee fanatic, this gift guide will have every dad covered.
Known as the go-to for all things gifting, Father Rabbit has gone one step further to ease the gift buying experience by cultivating their best-of’s into an easy-to-choose gift edit or two perfectly themed gift boxes.
Their Thank You for Everything Gift Box makes for a perfect present for the dads who already seem to have everything. The box includes a Quick Crosswords Puzzle Book, Bennetts of Mangawhai 45% Cacao Milk Chocolate Bar, Swedish Sea Salt Soap, Karst tree-free A6 Pocket Journal and Delfonics Regular Red Pen. RRP $89.
And for the foodie Dads, Father Rabbit recommends their specially-themed Fathers Day Box which includes Wild Fennel Co. Pocket Salt & Pocket Pepper, Frizzell Seven Minutes Tea Towel, Tasteology Chilli Sauce and Pallarés Carbon Steel Pocket Knife. RRP $79.
Aēsop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum
Skincare isn’t just for women, men too need to take care of their skin. A good skin care regime is more than washing your face while showering, it’s a regime designed to keep your skin healthy and in the best shape possible. So, this year for Father’s Day, we recommend the Aēsop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum. The formulation is suitable for most skin types, but especially apt for city-slickers—whose skin is often more susceptible to the effects of oxidative stress.
RRP $125.00 NZD / 60ML
Deadly Ponies Astro wash bag
Every dad should have a wash bag, and Deadly Ponies have the perfect one. Expertly handcrafted from dual-faced Bovine leather, it’s ideal for carrying toiletries for a weekend away. The bag features an external slip pocket and leather carry handle, and is also fitted with a solid brass zip closure.
RRP $329 NZD
Cain & Abel Knife Set
For the aspiring chef, these carbon steel knives are about to make cooking far more enjoyable. Handcrafted in Vietnam, they slice through meat, vegetables, and fish effortlessly, but be careful as they’re very sharp. With Father’s Day close, why not treat your dad to a singular knife, or surprise him with the set!
Cocktail legends Black Pineapple have specially created two Dad-worthy cocktail kits.
The Blood Orange and Cacao Negroni kit includes Scapegrace Gin, Campari Rosso Vermouth, signature house-made blood orange tea syrup and chocolate bitters. It also comes complete with a large format ice mould because the bigger the ice, the better the drink.
The Pear and Walnut Old Fashioned kit features Glenfiddich 12 year old Single Malt Whisky, house-made pear syrup, walnut liqueur, aromatic bitters, and complete with crimped orange garnishes.
Place your order by Monday 30th for delivery in time for Father’s Day. For Auckland, order by midnight on Wednesday 1st.
Plant Projects (coffee)
For the dad who loves coffee, this brand provides a wicked Father’s Day gift. Plant Projects Coffee creates the perfect soy, almond or oat milk latte. Its low acidity blend prevents the coffee and plant milk from splitting and curdling. It also retains the punchy flavour notes through your milk choice, so you can still taste all the goodness of the coffee. Plus, the added bonus of a light acidity coffee means it is also kinder on the stomach!
Lodge Cast Iron
BBQs and bad weather are not best pals, so look to level up dad’s kit with a Grill from Lodge Cast Iron that can offer up the charred effect from the comforts of the kitchen induction hob. From weeknight fry ups to seasoned steaks, he’ll appreciate this nod to his meat-wielding prowess. Crafted to last a lifetime, you’ll reap the benefits too – delicious grilled food all year-round rain or shine. Grills starting from RRP $112.50.
