40 gift ideas for Father's Day that are perfect for every kind of dad

Depending on who you talk to, an average Father's Day could consist of anything from an instant coffee served in bed to a four course dinner, accompanying wine and every relative in the state attending.

Because for every dad out there, there are as many ways to celebrate the father in your life.

But ask them what they actually want for a gift and even the most materialistic old mate gets altruistic in his response.

"Oh nah I don't need anything."

"Just a nice brekkie would be good."

"Case-a beer."

The gift of giving

And maybe that's also true. If we're being honest, half the pleasure of finding the perfect gift for Father's Day is in the act of giving. All of this, in part, for ourselves.

Who doesn't love seeing someone's face light up when they unwrap a limited edition bottle of whiskey, a brand new burnished leather briefcase or even just a new bottle of cologne?

Of course, some of us tend to go a little more OTT than others – and that's fine. If you have the kind of dad who can rock a couture leather jacket by Italian luxury label Ermenegildo Zegna more power to him. But if your dad is happiest with the practicality of a Swiss army knife at least you know who to turn to when the wine cork needs popping.
