Put back the novelty socks and hardware store vouchers. While there’s only a couple weeks left until Father’s Day (September 6), that doesn’t mean you can’t get the old man something he’s probably been subtly hinting at all year. To help you out, we’ve rounded up a few gift ideas for dad you can get online.
Kmart True Wireless Earphones ─ $35*
Move over, Apple. Kmart has a more affordable alternative to the popular AirPods, and it’s more than $200 cheaper than Apple’s basic model. Obviously, there’s going to be a pretty big difference in specs. But in terms of looks, both Bluetooth earphones seem pretty identical.
Kmart’s wireless earphones offer up to three hours talk time, plus an extra 10.5 hours’ worth of back up due to the charging battery case. This is pretty handy, especially considering it apparently requires just one hour to charge the battery. The earphones are also said to have a maximum Bluetooth operating distance of around 10m, meaning you can leave your phone in another room without having the music suddenly cut off.
The Kmart True Wireless Earphones come in a variety of colours, including white, black, pink and champagne. It includes a charging battery case.
Natio For Men ─ $34.95*
It’s not just mums who love being pampered and take their skincare seriously. The Natio Cool Gift Set is an easy, affordable and last-minute gift ─ especially if you buy it through Catch.com.au.
The pack includes a Natio Daily Face Wash to get rid of the day’s grime, as well as a gentle, low-foam Natio Smooth Shave Gel and a Natio Purifying Face Scrub to clear pores and buff away dead skin. It also includes a Natio SPF 30+ Face Moisturiser and a Natio Spice of Life Body Wash. Plus, there’s a stylish carry bag to store everything in.
This set usually costs $65.75, but you can get it for $34.95 on Catch.com.au.
Action Impact Massager ─ $99*
Does dad have sore and tight muscles, but an even firmer grip on his wallet?
The cost of massage guns can pack a serious punch, with popular brands like Theragun and TimTam offering models from around $375. Even some budget options can set you back at least $200, such as the Kogan Cordless Deep Muscle Massage Gun ($219 RRP)*.
But, you can still score yourself cheaper alternatives from places like Big W, including the Action Impact Massager ($99 RRP*) up for grabs in Big W’s Father’s Day Sale. It offers three adjustable power levels and is described as ideal for relieving sore and stiff muscles, as well as helping improve range of motion.
