Men often complain bout getting the worst gifts, whether it’s on their birthdays or holidays like Fathers Day and Christmas.

But Fathers Day gift ideas and gift ideas for other days need not be limited to things like socks, ties, pyjamas and toiletries.

Check out our guide full of Father’s Day gift ideas to help you toss out the old idea that men are hard to shop for. 

For the music-loving dad

Music is a universal language and not only does it say the things you sometimes feel as though you can’t, it also has the power to make you feel better.

If the dad in your life is a music-lover, he might appreciate a pair of bluetooth earbuds, retailing at a recommended selling price of R3 999.00.

Earbuds like the Sony Linkbuds are comfortable earbuds that will help block out unwanted distractions and keep dad connected and in control of his favourite music all day long. The earbuds also promise high call and sound quality.

For the outdoorsy dad who is also a techie

If the earbuds are a little out of your price range, you can get your dad the Sony XB23 Extra Bass™ Portable Wireless Speaker (R2 399.00). 

Whether camping with friends or relaxing in the park, this compact and lightweight speaker will easily fit into dad’s bag while providing powerful sound. 

According to Sony, the speaker has an IP67 rating, “which means dad can take it to the beach and not worry about dust or even salt water getting in the way of his favourite tunes.”

Fragrances also make for great Fathers Day gift ideas

The Rockford Wild White Eau de Toilette 100ml (R395.00) embraces the strength, energy, force and pulsating elements of free nature, and is perfect for the no-nonsense, straightforward type of dad who wants to smell great without having to do too much to achieve this.

“An explosion of energy, this fragrance comprises the freshness of bergamot, the harmony of a mint cocktail, aromatic notes of lavender, eucalyptus and pine and the richness of cedarwood and tree moss.”

For the dad who is more in tune with grooming trends, you might want to get him the Mercedes Benz Man Bright Eau de Parfum 100ml (R1695.95). The fragrance is a woody aromatic scent that’s futuristic and modern.

“For the confident, modern and no-fuss man, this fragrance is zesty and energising thanks to opening notes of bergamot, pink pepper SFE and mint essence. Lavandin, jasmine, incense SFE lends to its modernity and cedarwood Virginia essence, white musk, and tonka bean give it a sensual edge.”
