There are certain husband personalities that every wife can recognise (and may well be married to). From the outdoorsy environmentalist types who like to hike on the weekends to the uber groomed who prefer brunching at the latest trendy café. Whatever group your husband fits into, there is a perfect Father’s Day gift out there for him.
This guy likes to get handy on the weekend and is always three quarters of the way through his latest project, which often loses appeal before completion. His variety of gadgets means your garage has been converted into a workshop and there always seems to be a rogue screwdriver in the kitchen drawer.
Mr. DIY always has the right adhesive on hand when your little one breaks the door off his toy car and on the weekends he loves nothing more than ambling through the aisles of Bunnings with a sausage in bread and a trolley full of tools.
What he’d love for Father’s Day: A cordless Drill Kit, because there’s nothing as satisfying as spending the weekend working on bits and pieces around the house.

The Car Enthusiast.
The car enthusiast loves making an annual pilgrimage to Bathurst where he will happily sleep in a tent on a hill and poop in a stinky toilet block all for the joy of watching the V8s race around a track. He gave you the silent treatment when you refused to name your first born ‘Holden’ and if you made him choose between his 1964 EH and you, you’d be single within one rev. He often reminisces about that time he did perfect circle work in a random paddock and his downtime consists of flicking through car magazines and watching reruns of Top Gear.
What he’d love for Father’s Day: A cordless pressure washer, because there’s never enough times you can clean that prized possession.
The Outdoorsy Guy.
Mr. Outdoors loves popping bub in a Macpac carrier and heading for a remote camping site where he can crack open a flask and get a bonfire going. His wardrobe of waterproof jackets, hiking boots and thermals helped him reach VIP status at Kathmandu and he dreams of GoProing his way up Everest if he hasn’t already.
He’s fit, full of energy and can name 85 species of bird from their chirp alone. He’s tight with the planet so generally only likes to eat ethically sourced food and when your monthly water consumption is under the suburb average it’s high-fives all round.
