Father’s Day Gifts That’ll Bring Out the True Aussie In Your Old Man

Father's Day gifts

I know what you’re thinking, another year has flown by and it’s that time you scrounge around the internet hunting for the perfect gift for your old man.

It’s pretty well established that dads are probably the hardest family member to shop for. Whatever you do buy them, it ends up sitting in the back of the closet for three years, labels still intact, and he only remembers he’s got it when it’s time to do the by-century summer clear out. 

We understand you want to buy him something with a bit more thought behind it, knowing he’d actually put it to use. There are some gift ideas out there that are universally loved by all dads, and we’ve gathered them in a list so you can find the perfect gift that’ll bring out the true Aussie in your old man. 

Hugo Boss Bottled For Men EDT Perfume 100mL, $64 (was $133)

Some would argue it’s a cliche to buy your Dad a fragrance for Father’s Day, but why not? Nobody likes paying out of our own pockets for it because it’s expensive, and when it’s gifted every year, he’ll get a new one just in-time for his old one to run out. 

Hugo Boss Bottled For Men EDT Perfume is a signature for middle aged men. Most have worn it for years, and with most people of that generation, once you’ve found something you like, why change it?
