YOUR KIND OF RAD DAD FATHER’S DAY 2019
Your Dad is rad. And after all those late-night taxi rides, ‘loans’ that never get paid back and worldly pieces of advice, he deserves more than a last minute ‘Dad’ mug this Father’s Day.
The key to choosing the ideal present is to think about how he loves to spend his time (apart from hanging with you). The good news is, no matter what the answer may be, we’ve got you covered at Top Ryde City.
Whether your Dad is gadget-mad, stuck in the 70’s or a health nut, here’s our guide for choosing something special this Father’s Day.
Your cool dad loves things a little bit retro. Lucky for him, it just so happens that all his favourite items from his youth are back on trend! Think vinyl and record players – perfect for dusting off those Stones albums in the attic. JB Hi-Fi at Top Ryde City has a huge collection of turntables and accessories for your retro Dad to re-live the good old days.
If he’s in need of a bit of a wardrobe refresh, Surf Dive ‘n Ski also have an awesome range of retro inspired threads to help him dress for the occasion. Then all you need to do is grab him a Polaroid Vintage Camera from Camera House, and your dad will be transported back to a simpler time.
What is it with Dads and gadgets? We aren’t complaining, because having a dad who knows his tech is perfect when it comes to gift buying! Whether he’s into his gaming, smartphones, smartwatches or the latest in virtual reality, you’ll never be short of a gift that will put a grin on his face. Check out EB Games or Big W, where you can find electronics, smart home devices, drones and quadcopters. What more could your gadget dad ask for this Father’s Day?
Who says dads can’t indulge in a little bit of pampering? If your dad is always on the go, the perfect gift might be something that soothes away those aches and pains or keeps him looking good in the office.
And it just so happens Top Ryde City has several retailers that can help you spoil your dad. Massage Link and Massage One both offer relaxing, remedial massage services – great for the dad that holds a lot of responsibility on his shoulders.
If you want to help your dad to be the slickest dude in the office, you could always pick him up some personal grooming tools from the Shaver Shop, along with a fresh new cologne from Priceline or Unique Scents.
Your dad is obsessed with his sport and fitness, so any gift to aid all that activity is ideal. Where to start really? What about a subscription to Fitness First – Top Ryde City’s fully equipped gym complete with 25m pool. Or you could always sort him out with the right footwear for all that running or sports, with a voucher for The Athletes Foot.
Rebel Sport is also the perfect shop to find a huge range of fitness clothing and sporting equipment, from activity trackers to compression wear and recovery support. Maybe you could get a little something for yourself too – and give your dad the gift of spending time with you as well (the best gift of all!).
Who doesn’t love a bit of adventure? Not your dad, anyway. He loves travelling and wants to explore every part of the world! And while your budget may not include sending him to Europe for an O.E., it doesn’t mean you can’t pitch in for it (and maybe encourage him to get booking).
So head to Hello World or Flight Centre at Top Ryde City to speak to the experts in all kinds of adventure. Or if you think he just needs a little inspiration of where to head next – Big W has a range of travel guides and books to help him decide.
And don’t forget, just by spending $50 at any of our specialty stores up until the 27th of August you could win your dad the Ultimate Track Day. So visit Top Ryde City Shopping Centre for all your Father’s Day gift ideas – we’ve got your dad sorted.
