Give the gift of quality time this Father’s Day. We know there are so many hard-working dads out there who are putting in long hours in the office, but always making sure they’re home in time for bath and bedtime. What better way to celebrate this commitment than with a special story they can share with their little ones? We love titles like “I Love My Daddy” by Gillie Andreae, “My Dad” by Anthony Brown, and “The Very Best Daddy Of All” by Marion Dane Bauer, all available from Book Depository.
How much: Various prices starting from $78

BBQ loving dads will appreciate this thoughtful gift on Father’s Day. Treat your father or your other half to his favourite cut of meat and take advantage of Feather & Bone’s complimentary dry-ageing service (available in Happy Valley, Central and Clearwater Bay). Invest in a large piece of (preferably grain fed) beef and then he’ll be able to admire his aged-to-order gift at the dry-ageing cabinet and visit as often as he likes to have the butcher carve off an individual steak to cook up at home. We think it’s best left to the experts though and get it grilled up by the chefs at the Feather & Bone restaurant!
How much: Price dependent on size and cut of meat selected

Does your dad love a little whiskey? Or does he think he knows it all and wants to learn more? For those who love to test their tastebuds, it can be a bit too much to try every bottle going around. But a whiskey set from Just A Dram could be just the thing! It has sets and subscription boxes available, so he can sample a variety of top tipples all approved by Just A Dram’s in house Malt Masters. The “Around The World” set brings you the best from all over or, if he’s a man who knows what he likes, you can narrow down your selection to a specific region like the “Elegant Highland” or “The Forgotten Region.” The whiskey connoisseur might like to have a go at the Mystery Challenge.
