With Father’s Day just around the corner we know how hard it can be to find the perfect gift. Take a look out our top 10 gifts for inspiration – there’s something for every kind of dad!
Get smart – dad style
From tech dads to sporty dads, smartwatches have something to offer everyone.
An entry level Fitbit will set you back less than $100 but the more serious sporting dad may prefer Garmin’s range of GPS watches, priced from $300 and above.
For the on the go dad, the Apple Watch (around $400) can be paired with all sorts of super smart items around the home, including Merlin’s myQ technology! With his Apple Watch and myQ technology, dad will be able to monitor and control the garage door, from anywhere, at any time.
Dad’s own workout space
Inspire dad to get fit and catch some of those post workout endorphins by creating his own gym space at home. See our recent blog for tips and tricks on creating the perfect home workout space (on any budget).
Start the day right with a smart coffee machine
Whether he’s a coffee connoisseur or a tech lover, a smart coffee machine is a great gift for an on the go dad. Designed to brew a high quality cuppa, smart coffee machines start from around $100.
Listen up: Bluetooth headphones
For music buffs to sporty dads and in between, a set of Bluetooth headphones gives hands free freedom for the daily commute, workout or just lounging around the house.
A travel wallet
For jet setting families or dads who travel for work, a decent travel wallet is sleek, stylish and practical. From kikki.K to Status Anxiety and R.M. Williams, there are plenty of middle of the range options with a high end feel.
From race car driving to wine tasting or skiing, gifting an experience is a thoughtful way to show your appreciation for an adventurous dad. Even better if you can find an experience you can do together.
A good quality knife set is a kitchen staple in any household. If your Dad loves to cook, treat him to a new set to ensure safe and consistent slicing. From a set of Globals to Mundial or Furi, good knives can cost a couple of hundred dollars, but they’re well worth the investment.
A new barbeque for the perfect summer afternoon
As we head into the warmer weather, now is the ideal time to invest in a new grill for a barbeque loving dad. From as little as $300 at Ikea or into the thousands, there’s an option for every budget. At a lower price point, consider buying dad a seasoning back to take his barbequing to the next level.
A new garage door opener
Give your Dad the gift of convenience this Father’s Day with a new Merlin garage door opener with myQ technology. With myQ technology, Dad can monitor and control the garage door from his smart phone, tablet or Apple Watch. See our website for more information about myQ compatible products.
The practical gift
Ties, socks and undies. They’re not things we tend to enjoy buying for ourselves, so why not treat your Dad to a few pairs of novelty socks or premium underwear. Practical and fashionable.
