June celebrates the all star dads out there this Father’s Day. Mom wrought some wonderful spoils in May, and she very well deserved it! Let’s make our dads feel extra special with a little something that expresses his personal brand of dad.

Here are six different types of dads and gift ideas that will make this Father’s Day truly memorable: 


The Car Enthusiast Dad 

If your dad is a lover of all things automotive, consider giving him a personalised driving experience. Check out a local dealership and book him a father’s day test drive in the latest luxury or sports car. An experience he will truly enjoy, even if it’s an hour long adventure. Treat him to a lunch with his favourite child (that’s you) and you’re golden!

The Braai Master Dad 

For the dad who loves firing up the grill and serving up delicious flavours, enhance his braai experience with top-notch braai tools and accessories. A set of professional-grade stainless steel barbecue utensils or a high-quality meat thermometer will make his cooking sessions even more enjoyable. You could also surprise him with a selection of gourmet marinades, rubs, and spices to add a burst of flavour to his culinary creations. 


The Extreme Sports Dad 

Does your dad thrive on adrenaline and adventure? Why not consider giving him an experience he’ll never forget. Look for opportunities to book a skydiving session, a paragliding adventure, or a bungee jumping experience. Alternatively, if he enjoys water sports, consider a scuba diving course or a white-water rafting trip. These thrilling activities will provide him with an adrenaline rush and create lasting memories. 

The Tech-Savvy Dad 

Be warned, these dads are expensive! For the dad who is always up to date with the latest trends in electronics, dive the world of smart home devices. Consider giving him a voice-controlled smart speaker or a virtual reality headset to take his gaming experience to the next level. Be sure to join him on the fun and add to those father’s day warm memories! 

The Outdoor Explorer Dad 

If your dad loves spending time in nature and enjoys outdoor activities, gear him up with essential outdoor equipment. Depending on his interests, consider gifting him a durable hiking backpack, or a versatile multi-tool for his outdoor adventures. You could also get him a subscription to an outdoor magazine or a guidebook to help him discover new trails and destinations.
