This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday 3 September so now is a good time to start looking online and ordering a gift to ensure it is delivered in time. As always, it is always worth starting your online shopping at SchoolBuy because every purchase made with one of our retail partners helps raise much needed funds for schools – and without it costing you anything extra. Now that is what we call win-win and we are sure you will agree that is a great way to make a gift even more meaningful. Whatever you have in mind, our retail partners can help. With over two hundred partner stores, there are literally thousands of gift options to choose from. So, where to start?

You really can’t beat a good book and we are very happy to have partnered with great names like Booktopia and Angus and Robertson Bookworld as both retailers have enormous ranges, low prices and great customer support. Have a look at their special Father’s Day gift guides and take advantage of their special offers. Alternatively, your Dad might enjoy receiving his favourite magazine each month with a subscription from iSubscribe.

For the sports-mad dads, Fangear and The Footy Shop have merchandise for his favourite team, with all major sports covered (including footy, cricket, soccer, basketball and more). For the outdoorsy, adventurous guys who are into boating, camping, fishing, hiking, and watersports, BCF and Rays Outdoors both have a fantastic selection of quality gear, and The North Face is excellent for clothing and footwear.  Cyclists are well taken care of with bike shops like Chain Reaction Cycles and Reid Cycles.

If boxsets, videos or music are more to your Dad’s taste, you can purchase these from Sanity. When it comes to electronics, Microsoft and Sony offer the latest technology, and Camera House stocks all the top products in the world of cameras and photography.

If your dad likes to dress well (or he doesn’t and you’re trying to help him out), take a look at some of our fashion retailers. We have partnered with great brands to ensure we have lots of options when it comes to clothing, footwear and accessories. For example, if you are looking for casualwear, check out City Beach, Surfstitch, Superdry, Mossimo, Nautica or Just JeansVan Heusen, Ted Baker and Ben Sherman are good for business shirts, ties, etc. and Connor, yd. and Tarocash all offer affordable menswear. Head to The Athletes Foot, Glue Store and Vans for shoes, or log on to Fossil or Tumi for accessories like wallets and bags.  For socks and jocks visit Bonds and Bendon; and Peter Alexander is great for sleepwear.

Another really good place for menswear is, of course, David Jones.  In fact, you will find plenty of great Father’s Day ideas – from a whole range of different departments – online at DJs.

Finally, Adrenaline has some really memorable experiences and they are currently offering discounts on some exciting activities (like skydiving, rally driving, whale watching, helicopter rides, etc.). Experience vouchers can be delivered online so they are great if you have left it a little late to find the perfect gift. 

So, there are just a few ideas to get you started. Please don’t forget to start your shopping at www.schoolbuy.com.au. Just by nominating a school and clicking the link from our site to the chosen store, you let them know that you want your order to benefit your school. It’s that simple and such an easy way to make a difference for a good cause.

Happy Father’s Day.
