Father’s Day is on the horizon, and you’ve still got plenty of time to nab the perfect gift for your dad. But, what do you get the man who has always been your rock? if you’re wondering what to get to treat your pappa, we’ve highlighted some awesome items that should do the trick. Because we all know silly socks are so last year.
I’ll Drink to That
If your dad loves gin, you can’t go wrong with a bottle of Aviation Gin. Owned Ryan Reynold’s, this gin comes Deadpool approved, and it doesn’t get cooler than that! Of course, this spirit isn’t special just because it has a celebrity affiliation, fans of the brand say Aviation gin (R399) is softer and smoother than most, and its notes of juniper, citrus, and florals come together perfectly when it’s poured on the rocks or shaken in a cocktail.
The Gift of Power
Sometimes, the smallest, most practical gifts are the best. Most dads are always scratching around in drawers, looking for batteries for some old appliance they’re trying to revive, which is why an Energizer rechargeable battery set (R249) is such a great gift. Whether it be to give some much-needed fuel for TV remotes, clock radios, or power tools, having rechargeable batteries on hand is a game-changer.
Keeping it Together
If your dad loves to travel why not treat him to an electronics travel case for his next trip? Help dad keep all his travel electronics together with an electronics travel case designed to protect and organise all his techie bits and bobs. We love the Thule Subterra Power Shuttle electronics travel case (R799). Designed to keep everything from large headphones to small cables in one place while travelling, or even at home, this case is a must-have for tech lovers.
Stop and smell the roses
Keep your dad smelling fresh with a new signature scent for his cologne collection. The new L’Homme Lacoste Intense is the ideal choice for a man with confidence and charisma. A more intense, longer-lasting version of the original L’Homme Lacoste, the new L’Homme Lacoste Intense (R1,095) is the perfect gift for dad this Father’s Day. With top notes of Rhubarb and Quince, followed by heart notes of Black Pepper and Ginger, before finishing off with base notes of Vetiver and Cypriol, this fragrance will prove to be a winning choice for the winter season.
Toys for the Boys
If your dad is a lover of flying things, remote control toys, and photography, then it’s definitely time he steps into the world of drones. Weighing just 249 grams, DJI says the Mavic Mini (R6,989) is super portable, easy to fly, and designed for safety, making it the perfect drone for that dad who loves flying and gadgets. The drones small size and safety features in many areas exempts it from regulations that apply to other, heavier drones, and incorporates DJI’s renowned safety technology, a 2.7K camera, and 30 minutes of flight time.
