A gift guide for special dads

Forget about the socks and undies. Here are a few items dad might actually appreciate this Father’s Day.

Easy openings

If your dad is happiest doing odd jobs, here’s one that will only take a couple of hours and produce long-term benefits for everyone.

Chamberlain’s HandyLift MyQ can be attached to existing roller doors, and controlled by a smart device app. The app notification also alerts you any time your garage door is opened, helping to better monitor your property when away from the home. It comes with a five year warranty and is available at Bunnings for $599 rrp. 

Kitchen dreamer

For the dad that likes to cook, Cole & Mason’s Derwent grinding mills never clog or fail to grind thanks to a hardened carbon steel mechanism for the pepper mill and a diamond sharp ceramic mechanism for the salt mill.

The pepper mill’s unique grinding technology slices and strips layers from each peppercorn with every turn – to maximise the flavour and aroma released - instead of merely crushing the corns, as with most other mills.

Both the salt and pepper mill can be adjusted to produce various levels of grind, from fine to coarse. The pepper mill has six settings while the salt features three. 

Relax and spoil

For the end of the day (or maybe lunch), help dad to relax with his favourite beverage in a stylish glass.

Noritake has just released a range of Italian designed cocktail and beer glasses. From the IVV team of artisans in Tuscany, the Tasting Hour collection includes eight elegant glasses, each designed to enhance the drinking experience by not only looking good but feeling exceptionally comfortable in the hand.

Wine buff

If your dad is more into wine than beer, the Rabbit Electric Wine Preserver takes only 10 to 15 seconds to preserve wine for at least a week.

Battery powered, this device pulls a vacuum of 19Hg within the bottle. Each set contains two reusable silicone stoppers allowing two bottles to be preserved at any one time. Rabbit Electric Wine Preserver is $149.00 or a version where you pump the vacuum yourself is $24.95.
