A Steak from Victor Churchill
Throwing a steak on the BBQ is about as ‘Dad’ as you can get and Victor Churchill’s is the best premium butcher in Sydney. It’s one of those butchers that you don’t bother stepping foot into unless you’re prepared to take out a mortgage to feed your family. That said, a one off stop to get your old man the best steak he’ll ever eat is well worth the trip. Get chatting to the butchers while you’re there and they’ll talk you through the options and how to cook it perfectly.
Henry Carter Tie
Superb quality at an amazing price, Henry Carter ties are the hidden gem of the Australian menswear scene, and if your Dad still loves to wear a tie then this is the perfect gift. Choose from a grand selection of Maccesfield patterned and knitted ties, all hand made in Italy and sure to impress the old fella.
Melbourne Watch Company – Hawthorn
This is the follow up to the largely successful Flinders model from Melbourne Watch Company. The Hawthorn sees MWC pair a slightly larger blacked out dial with a brushed leather strap. This is the perfect everyday watch, and with the help of a few siblings won’t break the bank.
Il Bussetto Passport Wallet
For the Dad that loves to travel and won’t part with his 40 year old passport holder. This Il Bussetto passport wallet is made from a beautiful high-shine shell that opens to a contrast interior. With space for four cards, and a number of document pockets it’s sure to service the most frequent of travellers. Available from East Dane.
Sporting Tickets – Finals Footy.
We’re coming in to a seriously competitive month of professional sports with NRL and AFL finals are about to kick off, and the Bledisloe is in full swing. Grab a pair of Gold class tickets and throw him into the action.
A Round of Golf.
Obviously not suited to everyone, but a round of golf can be a great way spend some quality time your Dad. Whether he plays off 2 of 32, a lazy 18 holes followed by lunch at the clubhouse is the perfect way to spend a Sunday. I recently played Hunter Valley Golf Club and loved it.
A Sports car for the Weekend.
Cruising around Sydney in a 1968 Jaguar E-Type is a great experience in anyones book. Mr Aristotle offers a range of unique driving experiences across Australia (and the globe). If you’re Dad’s into his cars, or just enjoys a good drive, there’s not a better present out there.
A Long Lunch
Pick a restaurant with a great view and treat your Dad to a lazy weekend lunch. A few glasses of pinot matched with a fine dining experience, topped off with some quality time with the old man will put a smile on his dial, and put you in the good books for the coming 12 months. We recommend Pilu at Freshwater – a beautiful take on modern Italian cuisine with a wine list worthy of medal.
Sydney Wine Centre – Explore Pinot Noir
If your Father considers himself a certified wine expert, then he’ll love this wine tasting experience from Sydney Wine Centre that explore the Pinot Noir variety. No other grape excites and frustrates both winemakers and consumers alike. Discover iconic wines such as Ata Rangi, Felton Road, Mount Pleasant, Farr and Bay of Fires as well as some great value wines from up and coming stars of the industry. Throw in amazing French cheeses from Simon Johnson and some examples of food wine matching and this is an absolute cracker of a Father’s Day gift.
