From budget to boujee: Here are 11 items worth gifting this Father's Day.

Thanks to our brand partner, YSL BEAUTY

The dads, uncles, and father figures in our lives can sometimes be so tough to buy for. 

How do we choose a gift for someone who has everything and wants for nothing? 

For those who want to steer clear from the traditional gift card to Bunnings, I’ve curated a line-up of 11 gift options to suit any type of Dad and any type of budget this Father’s Day.

For the one who loves a pamper moment.

YSL Y Eau De Toilette, 60ml, $109.

It's taken my dad years to voluntarily head to the shops, sample a bunch of fragrances, and purchase a new one for himself. Fragrance is now the one beauty luxury he actually gets excited about. So, help take the guesswork out of finding his next favourite scent, and opt for a boujee option like the brand new Y Eau De Toilette by YSL. 


With top notes of Apple accord, it is a mineral woody fragrance contrasting fresh lavender and aromatic clary sage from Provence France. Being an EDT, this makes it the perfect diverse scent to choose for an event, dinner or fancy evening out.

If he prefers a longer lasting all-day scent option, the YSL Y Eau De Parfum ($125) is also a worth a look-in; a woody and clean fragrance with top notes of geranium absolute, white accord and sage. They come together to create a fresh and masculine scent he just might adopt as his ~signature~.

The Commonfolk Collective Dictionary Meaning Candle, $34.95.

Listen, I know upon first thought it can be consider... generic – but come on! It has Dad written on it, so it's personalised! And a chic design. If that’s not enough, these beautiful Commonfolk candles are lovingly hand poured right from Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. 

Plus, they're formulated with the finest of fragrances and essential oils mixed with creamy pure soy and coconut wax, making for long lasting and luxurious scents. Consider us sold, really.

Peter Alexander Best Dad Shortie Pj Set, $119.

If you’re looking for the title of favourite child, you can't really step a foot wrong with a classic ‘Best Dad’ gift. It's science. 

It's a cotton sateen and cotton jersey set, just in preparation for summer, and the set doesn't shy away from highlighting what a legend he actually us to you (just in case he was to ever forget).

For the one with business vibes.

Staple Superior Bennet Messenger Bag in Chocolate, $99.99.

You can’t go passed a solid quality crossbody bag, that ~actually~ fits a laptop. This beautiful Staple Superior bag comes in multiple colours, is sharp and sophisticated with brass-toned hardware too – and at just under $100, is sure to upgrade his 9 to 5 look whilst still being a practical investment purchase.

Daniel Wellington Classic Bristol 36mm watch, $329.

While we're upgrading his 9 to 5 vibe actually, why not trying a beautiful new watch while we’re at it? A Daniel Wellington watch is a classic and timeless timepiece, and have the added perk of interchangeable straps, allowing him to diversify his look whenever he'd like.

For the one who loves a wellness moment.

City Cave experience, from $44.

Nothing gives a Happy Father’s Day vibe quite like an opportunity of recovery for his mental and physical wellbeing. City Cave is a string of wellness and relaxation centres dotted down the coastlines of QLD and NSW, and offer luxe, serene experiences, including float therapy, infrared saunas or massages. 

You could treat him to a unique float therapy experience as an out-of-the-box gift, where he can be transported into a deep state of theta relaxation: a meditative state your body and mind progresses into for an optimal healing process. This state is said to help heal the body, reduces stress and anxiety, and immerses the body into deep relaxation. 

Aesop Quench: Classic Skin Care Kit, $120.

For me, nothing says luxury quite like YSL fragrance, and to add to that would be Aesop skincare. Thankfully for us, they’ve taken the guesswork out of choosing a complete skincare routine, and packaged it up into this Skin Care Kit. The Classic Kit is an excellent introduction to his skincare for dry skin, comprising of a cleanser, toner and moisturiser. It'll teach him the basics of a skincare routine (particularly for the ones that haven't ever used one before), whilst taking care of his skin with beautiful quality, long-lasting products.

For the one who is tech-minded.

Marshall Action II Bluetooth Speaker, $499.

This speak may be compact, but its sound is nothing short of large. It would most definitely appeal to any dad with a love for technology, music, entertaining guests and of course, any retro vibes. 

Connecting easily via Bluetooth, it has volume, treble, and bass knobs to make easy adjustments, and in addition Marshall also has an app which can be used to adjust settings when you’re not in front of the speaker, making it a sweet addition to his space. 

For the one who basically... has it all.

Cheers Sweet Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit Gift Box, $121.

For the guy who enjoys a tipple (particularly mixing his own), this is basically a cocktail box to suit any need. 

Each gift box includes ingredients to make two Old Fashioned drinks, plus include two luxe carats glasses, matching mixing jug, a bar spoon, dried fruit for garnish, and a couple of snacks to enjoy with them. It allows him to make a round of cocktails (reserve one for yourself!), and keep the accessories to fine tune his mixologist skills for future use.

Liquor Loot Subscription, from $84.

A subscription is always a banger idea if you're pooling funds in a group of loved ones, to give him a gift that keeps on giving! Liquor Loot sources premium spirits from around the world, and pop the best of the best in a monthly subscription box, delivered straight to your door. 

Each month he will receive a bespoke presentation box, with three custom-designed glass bottles containing a hand-selected selection of your chosen spirit (that's two standard drinks of each). If he's one to enjoy an exciting loot each month of spirits to try, he'll continue to feel the love rolling month on month each time he receives a delivery!

(And you know, if all else fails, we’ll always have Bunnings vouchers.)
