If your dad is anything like mine, he’s not too keen on fuss, likes to save a dollar where he can and he loves to barrack for the underdog.
That’s why I’ll be buying my dad’s Father’s Day gift from one of MyCarte’s online retailers this year.
It’s like MyCarte has been created for dads just like mine. It’s Aussie (tick), straightforward (tick), saves money (tick) and gives Aussie businesses a fairer go (tick).
It’s also a true Aussie underdog – sure, there are other shopping sites around, but only MyCarte has been set up to make it cheaper for Aussie businesses to connect to customers, and give money back to non-profit organisations.
So, whether you’re celebrating your dad, step-dad, grandad, uncle or other top bloke in your life, here are the best Father’s Day gifts from some great Aussie online businesses that would love to get your support this year.
According to Brewquets, ‘the days of socks and jocks are over’. A 100% Aussie independently-owned business, these guys have set out to raise the bar when it comes to buying gifts for men. They’ve created ‘the brewquet’ – a bouquet of beers. This Father’s Day, they have a great range of beer hampers with free delivery and gift message. If your old man loves his beer, you can’t go wrong with Brewquets.
Is dad a bit more of a cultured fella? If wine is more his tipple, Just Wines has grown from being a 2-people to venture to become on of Australia’s largest online retailers. Their vision? To support Australian wineries. They offer one of the largest collections of Australian wines sourced from wineries in some of the remotest wine regions of Australia, supporting over 1,000 Aussie wineries. They’ll deliver straight to dad’s door as well – perfect for these lockdown times.
As a daughter, all I can say about Elinz is that it looks like a dad-kind of store. Drones, dashcams, reversing cameras, gaming stuff – if your dad is in to his gadgets, you’re sure to find something he’ll like through Elinz. It’s a like some sort of home-grown gadget superstore heaven, and they’re offering 5% off selected items this Father’s Day with the code FATHER$21.
For the sporty dads out there, OnSport is running a great Father’s Day sale, with discounts on clothes, baseball caps, sneakers, backpacks and even vintage-style football jerseys – all with free delivery. Again, OnSports is a 100% owned and operated Aussie store and they’re committed to good ol’ fashioned Australian customer service.
