Three Adventures for a Fabulous Father’s Day
With Father’s Day fast approaching, now’s the time to start thinking about it in a whole new light. While breakfast in bed may be the traditional treat of choice, there are plenty of innovative ways to give your dad – or spouse – a day to remember. Whether you have an active dad, gourmet dad or designer dad, let them know how special they are by adding a touch of adventure.
Mouth-watering and memorable
While bacon and eggs in bed may be a little clichéd, there’s no reason why breakfast or brunch can’t be the main attraction this Father’s Day. To make it something special however, think new and undiscovered. Whether your dad loves to cook or simply enjoys a quality meal, think about how you can spice it up with great food in a gorgeous location. How about a gourmet breakfast at a café with a view, a picnic brunch of freshly baked bread and deli treats by the water, or a picturesque drive and lunch at a winery, with a trip to the cellar door to pick up a bottle for dinner?
Head to your local tourism site for inspiration along the lines of out-of-the-way picnic spots, wineries or parks, and do book ahead if you opt for a café or restaurant. And the perfect gift for a gourmet dad? Our For the Love of Cooking Collection features a selection of beautifully designed kitchen accessories and a copy of Mr. Wilkinson’s Simply Dressed Salads, ideal for any skill level.
Out and about
If the father in your life is an active type or has a love of the great outdoors, plan an adventure to make the most of the (hopefully) glorious spring weather. How about a scenic cycle, bushwalk or even a local cruise? Pick a secluded beach out of town for a family lunch watching the waves. And while you’re there, present him with our ManAbout Town Collection, a beautiful boxed set of designer accessories for when he’s on the road, including a stylish leather document and iPad holder, nifty portable speaker and a copy of My Cool Bike, with everything he needs to know about bikes and bike culture.
If your dad has a penchant for art, design or film, make it part of the day. Check out local exhibitions and plan a gallery hop. Take him to a favourite museum – or one he’s never been to before. Or you could simply bring home a box of classic DVDs, dim the lights and pass the homemade popcorn for an evening of cinematic excess.
And if you’re still undecided when it comes to the perfect gift, our For the Love of Dad Collection may be the answer. This gift box will bring a dash of panache to the BBQ with a range of seamlessly coordinated accessories including a quality hemp denim apron, bamboo utensil set, a hamburger press, ice ball and for inspiration, a copy of the hardcover book, Food Truck Feast. Voila!
