Shopping for Father’s Day – tips and bargains!

Last minute bargain Father’s Day Ideas…

With Fathers Day just around the corner, I thought I’d help you all out with some top tips on where to shop for the special blokes in your life.

You’re welcome.

Harbour Town caters for just about every type of dad there is.

For the cool casual dad, I’d be heading to Connor, Gazman, Roger David and Oxford. Ed Harry have a great range of new season shirts at outlet prices and at Tarocash there are chinos and shirts as far as the eye can see.

If your dad is more into sweating it out then check out Adidas, Fila Brand Direct, Intersport, Sports Power and Converse. Brooks Factory Direct have a huge sale with their runners at more than 50% off! Where at JT Surf, your skater dad can hold onto his youth a little bit more with big surf brands like Hurley, Rip Curl and Santa Cruz.

Perhaps you need to shop a more mature look? We’ve got that covered too. Stafford Ellinson, Rivers and Black Pepper are your go to for a simple, pared back look. I picked up the best vest from Black Pepper and a pair of adventure walkers from Rivers for my nonno (82 and still taking daily walks down Jetty Road…I love it!)

Buying for a classic kinda guy? JAG and Esprit have classic cut denim, tees and shirts that we’ve come to know and love from these iconic brands. And with a buy one, get one free deal, make sure you visit Levi’s outlet. You can’t get more classic than Levi’s..

What about the high flying, corporate dads you say? Wanting gorgeous fabrics, European styling without the price tag? Suit, shirt and tie combos for $350 at Peter Jackson, and sports jackets from $99 at Daniel Hechter? No brainer..

For the young and hip dad, there’s Inventory Store,Yd, Rivalry, Diesel and Jay Jays. I picked up the coolest slim fit chino short and print shirt from Industrie for my huz all for $50. With everything from shoes and accessories (the hipster dads are all about accessories), these stores will have them stroking their beards in excitement come Sunday.

Perhaps your dad needs new sunnies like my husband? 50% off big brands at The Sunglass Hut. Tick.

Aftershave or cologne? Fab gift packs starting from $49 at Cosmetics Fragrance Direct. Sorted.

Dad need a protein hit after a workout? Elite Supplements have Whey Isolate at 40% off. Boom.

Stationery set, mug or desktop golf? Typo have the lot.

And, if you’re still after socks and jocks, then at least grab him (pardon the pun) a nice pair of comfy, Aussie made Bonds at 3 for $40.

Harbour Town has got something for every kind of dad….and with all the savings, you’ll have enough left over to treat yourself too…see, I’m always looking out for my gals…
