Say No to Jocks and Socks!

With Father's Day looming, have you started contemplating that special gift to give? Don't run out of time this year and find yourself falling back on the good ol' jocks and socks!

Check out the links below for some great gift ideas for fathers and grandfathers to suit all budgets.

Hard To Find

If you're looking for something quirky and unique you're sure to find it here. You'll find shirts, hats, sunglasses, cushions, art, cuff links, head phones, BBQ aprons, key rings, slippers, ties, bracelets, dog tags... jocks and socks. Items can be pricey but 'hard to find' elsewhere.


Similar to 'Hard to Find' but with lower price tags, you may discover some perfect gifts here. Good variety and quality for most budgets.

Latest Buy and Dad Shop

I'll admit that some (okay, a lot) of these gifts are quite gimicky, but you just may find something he'll love. Mini fan, pizza stone, glow in the dark clock, 3D earth jigsaw. Word of warning: the 'father's day' filter was a little optimistic so perhaps just ignore the 'Iron Anywhere mat' and the 'Animated Sewing Machine Musical Box'... (??)

Red Balloon

If the men in your lives are thrill seekers, then look no further! Red balloon has you covered with skydiving, rally driving, helicopter flights, shark diving, stunt driving, whale watching, quad biking and more. Or perhaps the grandfathers would enjoy a ride in a tigermoth, flight simulator, or appreciate a wine and cheese tasting experience.

Give him Tickets

Head over to Ticketek Australia to find the perfect ticket for him! They cover it all from concerts, comedy and magic shows to football games, FMX and monster trucks.

Snap Fish

How about making it personal with your own favourite family photos? You can choose from a huge range of products like photo books, mugs, magnets, key rings, stubbie coolers, calendars and much more.


So he's not into expensive and fancy gifts? Not a problem. How about a DIY jar of nuts ('We're nuts about you') or Hershey kisses ('Kisses for Daddy').
