For the dad that’s a wine enthusiast, I suggest getting a wine Fathers Day basket. You will find a wide range of wines available, so you can pick his favourite one. These wines come paired with snacks such as nuts, olives, fruit pastes, crispbreads, and many other goods. A gift basket such as this will make an excellent addition to a charcuterie board. If your dad is a fan of such classy rituals, this is the perfect holiday gift for him.

Why is Wine a Good Father’s Day Gift?

But why should you opt for wine specifically? Even if your dad isn’t such a wine fan, there are numerous reasons for choosing this gift. Wine has been around for millennia. The Ancient Romans and Hellenes considered it a gift from the gods, while the Egyptians buried their people with wine supplies to make sure that they had enough for the afterlife. Even in modern times, wine is an excellent gift, and here is why:

  • It shows how much you care. Buying a wine Fathers Day gift hamper is a great opportunity to express how well you know your dad. Choosing a vegetarian wine for your vegetarian dad, or his favourite wine, whether it’s Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir, displays a lot of thoughtfulness.
  • Vintage wines are great for celebrating particular years. Gifting your dad a bottle of wine from the year of his birthday is a great way to pay respect to him.
  • It will last for a long time. When giving wine as a gift, the recipient is under no pressure to drink it right away. In fact, a good wine will only improve with age if left unopened.
  • It has numerous health benefits. Gifting wine is a great way to boost your dad’s vitality. Drinking red wine offers several important benefits for his heart health. It raises levels of good cholesterol, it reduces the chance of formation of blood clots, and keeps blood vessels healthy.

Whiskey Gift Basket

A high-quality bottle of whiskey is a classic dad present. Every bottle of bourbon, scotch, or rye offers a tale about ingredients, procedure, the passage of time, and the location where the bottle has been distilled. Maybe you just want to spoil dad with something a little higher class than he usually purchases for himself because he deserves it. Choose one of the Fathers Day gift baskets Australia offers that include a premium bottle of whiskey, a crystal whiskey set, and delicious snacks.

Pamper Hamper

Pamper hampers aren’t just for the ladies – they are unisex gifts. If your dad is a busy person who can’t find enough time to relax, treat him to some men’s pamper products and get him a pamper hamper for the upcoming holiday. You can choose from the many ready-made hampers online, or you can make one yourself. Put together a few essential oils, bath salts, a body wash, a moisturizer and a shaving gel and you’re good to go.

A ‘Handyman’ Gift Basket

If your dad’s the type that loves doing DIY projects around the house, consider getting him a gift basket filled with the essential tools. Putting together one of these gift baskets is extremely easy and doesn’t require a lot of items. Start with a toolbox or a basket that he can use after removing all the gifts. Fill this with packing paper and start adding your gifts. Items you can include are:

  • Hammer;
  • Drill;
  • Magazines;
  • Tape measure;
  • Duct tape;
  • Screwdrivers;
  • Shop rags.

A Grilling Gift Basket

My last gift suggestion for the upcoming holiday is a grilling Fathers Day gift basket. If your dad is an avid foodie who enjoys barbecuing, this is the perfect gift for him. Similar to the ‘Handyman’ basket, you can easily create it yourself.

How to Create a Grilling Gift Basket?

Start with a food-themed basket and place a checkerboard tablecloth inside. Then add some brown crinkly paper and start adding your barbecue accessories, spices and condiments. Don’t forget to include barbecue brushes, utensils, and your dad’s favourite sauces, meat rubs, and marinades. To top it all off, add a 6-pack of his favourite beer. After you’ve arranged the gift basket the way you wanted to, add some extra stuffing paper on top and tie a decorative ribbon around your basket.
