Father's Day: gifts for every budget
Father’s Day is just around the corner (Sunday 1 September- mark your calendars), and it’s the perfect time to show your real life superhero just how much you appreciate him. And no matter what kind of dad you have, Westfield Marion has the perfect gift to suit every budget.
Stubby Holders $9.99
You might know that he’s the world’s greatest dad, but he’ll be able to let everyone else know as well with the range of stubby holders at Campbell’s Newsagency. Whether you want to tell him that he’s the original hero or that you love him even though he farts, there’s a wide range of novelty designs to choose from. Or you can give him a more personalised message with the huge selection of cards available instore.
Top Gun Tickets $12
Sure dad would look good in a pair of aviators from Sunglass Hut, but let’s be honest – Tom Cruise wears them even better. If the old man still feels the need for speed, he can relive the adventures of the hotshot recruits at the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School with a special screening of Top Gun at 4pm on September 1. Tickets start at $12 per person for Cinebuzz members or if you really want to take his breath away, check out the deluxe Father’s Day Packages in Gold Class.
Gourmet Gift Box $49.90
At Charlesworth, the hard part isn’t finding a Father’s Day gift – it’s choosing from the huge selection of over 50 hampers, baskets and gift boxes. Fortunately the Gourmet Gift Box has something for every taste. Everything is freshly packed and handmade at the Charlesworth Nuts Factory in Marion, the box comes pre-wrapped in eco-friendly packaging and best of all, there’s far too much for one person so there’s a pretty good chance you’ll get to share the goodies.
Organic Relax Massage $125
For the dad who has everything, the best gift is a chance to completely unwind and leave the busy workweek behind. Endota’s hour-long Organic Relax Massage uses essential oils and warm jade stones to make stress melt away, easing tight muscles in the back, neck, shoulders, arms and legs as well as relaxing a busy mind. Gift vouchers last for up to three years, so dad can choose the perfect time to visit for a pick me up that’ll leave him feeling recharged and rejuvenated.
Philips S9000 Prestige Electric Shaver $499
Dad might be gunning for a sleep in on Father’s Day but come Monday he’ll need to look fresh for work and he’ll be very grateful for this beauty. Offering the world’s closest electric shave, it has Nanotech precision blades with extra strong edges and a sensor that lets him shave up to a week’s growth in one pass. With wireless charging and personal comfort settings, the model is exclusive to Shaver Shop and if you mention this promotion they’ll throw in a free nose and ear hair trimmer as well.
