    THERE’S STILL TIME: OUR STAFF CHOOSE THEIR TOP GIFTS FOR DAD’S

    Father’s Day is right around the corner (we can’t believe it either!), and if you haven’t organised a gift for dad (like many of us, oops), there’s still time but you need to be quick!

    We had a chat to some of our team member about what they would recommend from our range.

    PERSONALISED GIFTS FOR DAD TO SUIT ALL BUDGETS

    dad son breakfast in bed

    He looks out for you and the family all year, so Father’s Day is the perfect day to spoil him and say ‘thanks!’ However, a year goes by really quickly and all of a sudden, it’s here again, we are busily trying to arrange a special gift and find him something that he doesn’t already own.

    The beauty with shopping online is that it can be done from anywhere at any time and with the current COVID pandemic, it’s a safe option from the comfort of your couch.

    Personalised gifts are more popular than ever for that fact that they are so much more than just a pair of socks or case of beer. Thought, creativity and love go into each and every gift and there is literally something for every type of dad and of course, something to suit every budget.

    Let’s take a look at some of our top picks for Dad to suit every budget!

    SPOTLIGHT ON MEN-TAL HEALTH: 5 AUSSIE CHARITIES THAT SUPPORT MEN'S HEALTH

    The events of the past few months have taught us many things and one truth that’s been thrust into the spotlight is the health of our Aussies. Despite the fact that our health and hospital system is pretty solid, it’s important to highlight the importance of getting the right access to support services and take care of not just out own well-being but that of those we love.

    With this in mind, we have selected 5 Australian charities and organisations that are helping to get out nation and its men in a healthy headspace.

  4. TAKING THE GOOD WITH THE BAD: BEST AND WORST ADVICE FROM DADS’

    Lampoon Dad

    Lampoon Dad

    You turn to your Dad for advice because you figure that they’ve been there before and don’t that. Just because they are older (and assumedly wiser) doesn’t always mean they are right.

    They often pass along ridiculous old wives’ tales or confusing advice in the hopes that it will steer us in the right direction.

    In among some of the worst or cheesy advice are gems of wisdom, guidance and love from our Fathers.

    Let’s take a look at some of the best and worst advice as given by Dads. If life has taught us anything, it’s that we have to take the good with the bad, right.

    CHEERS TO DAD: 5 UNIQUELY PERSONALISED GIFTS

    We all know that dads can be pretty tough to buys for and let’s be honest, there are only so many pairs of socks and underwear that we can surprise him with.

    We recognise that every dad is unique in their own right and that’s what makes them so special. It’s time to step up your gift-giving game this year and really ‘wow’ dad with your thoughtful gifting skills.

    We have put together a couple of ideas (just in case you’re stuck). Oh, and just a little reminder to our customers to pop your orders in sooner rather than later to ensure your orders have plenty of time to arrive. We would hate for dad to miss out on his gift due to postal delays.

    Father’s on Fatherhood

    dad helping son

    It may seem like yesterday that you graduated high school and now you are going through the life-changing journey of Fatherhood. The young, selfish and immature views of the world disappeared when your daughter or son arrived and suddenly you were their protectors.

    While fatherhood isn’t a walk in the park (more like Jurassic Park), it’s also an incredibly rewarding experience. Not only are we teaching and guiding our children through life, at the same time they are teaching us to much about ourselves.

    In reality, no dad has it ‘figured out’ and chances are he’s just winging it along the way. There’s one thing we will always love (and roll our eyes at) and that is their dad jokes and funny quirks reminiscent of those daggy TV dads with the laugh-out-loud punchline.

    We had the pleasure of chatting to Matt (our CEO), Mark (our National Sa

    5 TIPS ON HOW TO BE A SAVVY SHOPPER

    couple online shopping

    Although having the uncanny talent of finding a bargain is a top trait of a Savvy Shopper, in essence it is about making the most out of your hard-earned dollars. Part of being a savvy shopper is knowing when and where to buy.

    Life is busy and who has time these days to be wandering around the shops only to come home with nothing. Using the convenience of online shopping, you can compare products and find a sale.

    1. Remember that supporting local and Australian made businesses is at the forefront of many people’s minds and although the price may not be the lowest, you may find that shipping is cheaper, delivery is faster and the quality is far superior.
    2. Shopping out of season can snag you a bargain and taking advantage of those mid-year or end of year sales events. These major events are a great time to stock up on birthday a

    A sense of adventure: personalise your Father’s Day experience

    dad and family

    Dads help us with so many things in our lives. From teaching us to catch a ball and learning to ride a bike when we’re young, to guiding us through the ups and downs of life and helping to shape us into the person we become.

    It’s not often we stop and say thank you to dad for everything he has done for us. Father’s Day gives us that opportunity.

    So this year, harness your sense of adventure and give dad something truly memorable by personalising his Father’s Day experience to show him just how much he means to you. It can be your way of saying ‘Thanks Dad – for everything!’

    What do you buy the Dad who has everything?

    dad and son

    Dads. They come in all shapes and all sizes. And they’re notorious for being the most difficult person in the family to buy for.

    If yours is anything like ours he pulls out the old ‘there’s nothing I need, just a hug will be fine’ line every time a gift is in order. But remember that one time you actually did call his bluff and forgot the present? You’re still living it down, aren’t you?

    So, here’s six gift ideas to put a smile on the dial of the legend who says he’s got it all. Socks, underwear and neck ties need not apply.

    The role of your Dad on your Wedding Day

    The role of Dads on their daughters' wedding day was immortalised by Steve Martin in the 1991 movie, Father of the Bride, when he portrayed overprotective father George Banks, and the conflicting emotions he experienced in 'giving his little girl away'. Perhaps this movie highlighted to fathers everywhere, what not to do in regard to the happiest day of their daughter's life.
