Father’s Day, also known as ‘last-minute-dash-to-find-an-appropriate-gift-day’, is fast approaching. If you’ve not decided how you’ll be spoiling your Dad this Sunday, here’s some suggestions to avoid that Saturday afternoon panic purchase:
If your Dad likes nothing more than some one-to-one time, give him the gift of some quality time with quality food. For burger-fans, head to Byron Burger; the B-Rex, packed with onion rings, streaky bacon, American cheese, jalapeños, pickles, onion, BBQ sauce and mayonnaise, is so large it puts Jurassic World’s Indominus Rex to shame.
Or, for an authentic Italian experience, treat him to one of Olivelli’s daily changing specials and pair with a refreshing Italian beer.

For active Dads
For urban sport and fitness fanatics, Cloud 9 Cycles has a host of bikes, accessories and services for all his cycling needs. This independent bike boutique even offers a custom built bike service, ensuring a truly personal gift. If that seems a little extravagant for Father’s Day, the store’s latest gadget – the Finn Bike Phone Mount – from Austria, is a pretty nifty solution for fitting mobile phones to the handle bars. Being able to safely and easily follow a sat nab means he’ll never have to ask for directions again.
