Public Service Announcement: Father’s Day is this Sunday. While we can’t help you with booking his favourite restaurant for lunch, we can sort you out with some pretty brilliant gift ideas.

Forget the traditional Toblerone and pair of socks and try one of these 10 original ideas.

1. Mandle

This isn’t any old candle, it’s a MANdle (yes, a candle for men). Available in five scents, our pick is ‘Half Time’, described as ‘a tangy burst of citrus fruits, infused with red hot chilli peppers’. Manly indeed. ‘Half Time’ Mandle, $39.50.

2. Cologne

A deep, smouldering fragance, Dior's Eau Sauvage is full of citrus, amber and woody notes. It's a welcome twist on the classic evening cologne - a powerful and confident scent. Dior Eau Sauvage Eau de Toilette Spray 60ml, $99, available at Myer and David Jones.

3. Grooming Kit

Containing an Eau de Toilette, antiperspirant deodorant, body wash and sports towel, this is the perfect kit for your dad to throw in his gym bag, work desk or bathroom drawer. Natio Active Father's Day Gift Guide, $34.95.

 4. Underwear

Undies may be a standard gift, but trust us, these ones come with a difference. Say goodbye to tightie whities and hello to trunks that are really pieces of art in themselves.

Offering support, tucking and lifting in all the right places with killer graphic prints from artists to match, Stonemen undies are digitally printed on 95 per cent cotton. Stonemen 'The Lake' Men's Trunks, $44.99.

5. Headphones

Does your dad constantly lament the good old days of vinyl, mixtapes or his walkman? These Bluetooth wireless earphones deliver CD-quality audio to make his favourite music or business phone calls sound clearer than ever. Sol Republic Shadow In-ear Headphones, $179.99.

Whether it's for pleasure or business, sound has never been clearer. Image via Sol Republic.
