Fathers’ Day Gift Guide


It’s always been said that men are harder to buy for than women. Often the gift ideas for men include jocks, socks & hardware store gift cards. We would like to help change that stereotype & save you time in looking for that perfect gift.

Here are my Top 5 gift ideas for Fathers’ Day (+ a bonus one!)

1. Personalised Shed Sign
We designed these specifically with men in mind. Men with shed hobbies can be particularly difficult to find an inspiring gift – their hobby is hard to understand, expensive & they seem to have everything they need already.
We have 9 different designs to choose from:
• Shifting Spanner
• Metal Lathe
• Milling Machine
• Drill Press
• Spark Plus
• Pistons
• Hand Saw
• Road Bike
• Reel Mower

2. Gift Basket
I know it seems generic, but there are some amazing local businesses out there that have been doing it tough between the bushfires & now pandemic restrictions. Either buy a pre-made gift basket or put one together yourself with his favourite things. Check our local wineries, craft breweries, specialty chocolate & nut shops and cheese shops.
My top 10 around the Adelaide Hills are below (most of these offer postage if you’re unable to visit in person):
· Adelaide Hills Florist (hampers)
· Hahndorf Market (hampers)
· Barristers Block, Woodside
· Golding Wines, Lobethal
· Prancing Pony Brewery
· Lobethal Bierhaus
· Melbas Chocolates & Confectionary
· Baylies Epicurean Delights
· Udder Delights
· Adelaide Hills Distillery

3. Personalised Animal Sign
Does your father/husband/grandfather have a special Man’s Best Friend in their life? Are they a farmer or animal breeder? We have a wide range of animal signs that can be customised to over 150+ breeds of dog, or a variety of other animals including sheep, cows, kangaroos & horses (and more!) We offer 2 standard sizes & custom text is available.

4. Handcrafted Wooden Chopping Board
I know I promoted this one for Mothers’ Day too, but I bought one for myself and it is worth every cent. For the chef in your life, get him this quality handcrafted chopping board from Goodies Kitchen Garden.

5. Metal Garden Decorations
Know a man whose garden is his pride & joy? We have a wide range of metal cutouts to suit almost everyone – from kangaroos, to birds, sheep, dinosaurs & more!
While this particular range of garden decorations come in standard sizes for their price tags, we are more than happy to discuss making them bigger as a stand-out feature for the garden!

6. Quality Time
Our final gift idea is the gift of YOU (I couldn’t keep to my 5-idea limit!)
Between work, home life, social lives & coordinating kids, sometimes family catch ups can fall to the wayside. Put some time aside one weekend and sit down for a meal – whether it’s at your home, or out supporting a local business that has done it tough this past year.

What are you planning for Dad this year?
