Fathers Day Gifts


Have you ordered your Father’s Day gift yet? If you are staying away from the shops to avoid COVID-19, you will be pleased to know that online shopping is a fantastic solution for gift giving this year - for so many reasons. Apart from the incredible selection of presents to choose from and the opportunity to have your gift delivered directly to your Dad’s home, there is of course the chance to raise funds for your favourite school (at no extra cost) if you shop online with SchoolBuy partners.   

If you are not sure where to start, there are a few suggestions below to give you some ideas. All you need to do is nominate your chosen school on the SchoolBuy website before placing an order with one of these retailers (or any other SchoolBuy partner) and a percentage of what you spend will automatically go to the school of your choice. It really is that easy to make your purchase count and we are sure that your Dad will be happy to know their gift is helping to support a good cause.

A book from Booktopia

A good place to start when you are looking for the perfect present is a bookstore and luckily we know of a great one! Booktopia has put together a gift guide with a wonderful selection of titles to suit a range of interests and budgets. From top fiction recommendations to the latest bestselling biographies and more, you are sure to find something to capture his attention. SchoolBuy has also partnered with Angus and Robertson and QBD Books to bring you even more great reading options, and if he prefers ebooks or audiobooks, you will find a huge range of those at Kobo.

Socks and jocks from Bonds

If new socks and/or underwear is a bit of a Father’s Day tradition in your family, then look no further than Bonds.  With the quality and value for money you’ve come to expect from this Aussie icon, their website also offers plenty of really comfortable casualwear, sleepwear and loungewear options for hanging out at home. Plus, right now, they have lots of multi-pack and multi-buy deals so there are further opportunities to save.

Fashion from Van Heusen

Leading menswear retailer, Van Heusen offers a great choice of clothing and accessories for men. So, if you are looking for items like shirts, ties or belts, they can help.  What’s more, they have put together a special selection of gifts for under $40, and also provide some amazing discounts if you purchase more than one shirt.  However, if Van Heusen is not really his style, there are plenty of other menswear retailers on the site (such as, CAT Workwear, Connor, Fossil, General Pants Co., Hard Yakka, KingGee, Lowes, Rivers, Superdry, Tarocash, The North Face, Volcom and yd.). And, we have also partnered with a number of great footwear stores if a new pair of shoes is on the wishlist.

Movies from Sanity

If you were thinking of buying movies, boxsets or music, have a look at what Sanity has on offer. From classics to the latest releases, they are bound to have your Dad’s favourite movie or TV show available to own. With the coronavirus keeping everyone at home more, what better time is there to catch up on the best in onscreen entertainment?

An electric shaver from Shaver Shop

This year, the Shaver Shop is offering huge savings on selected items – in some cases, up to 85%. With an unmatched selection of grooming products including shavers, hair clippers, beard trimmers, electric toothbrushes and so much more, the timing of their sale could not be better. Naturally, they stock all the best brands, which is what you need in these crazy times when trips to the barber may be less frequent. As an alternative suggestion - for the gentlemen who take grooming seriously - there are a number of top cosmetic brands on the SchoolBuy website who are currently promoting designer fragrances and special gift packs for men.

Slippers from UGG Express

Did you know that the range at UGG Express extends beyond various types of ugg boots to include slippers, scuffs and more? Of course, they are all made from high-quality Aussie sheepskin and designed to be really comfy. Plus they come in a variety of styles and colours so you can select the perfect pair for your Dad. And, if you hurry, you can take advantage of sale prices on selected slippers.

Camera equipment from Camera House

Camera House has a lot of cool products if the man you are buying for is interested in photography or filming. As the name suggests, they have got all your camera needs covered – including all the accessories like lenses, tripods, batteries, memory cards, cables, bags, etc.  However, the thing that caught our eye was their selection of drones and drone accessories, as well as all the gear they have (such as lighting products, microphones and audio equipment) to add a level of real professionalism to any video.

New swimwear from Speedo

New swimwear is always a good idea for an Aussie Father’s Day as the day always falls right around the time when the weather starts to get warmer. Fortunately, Speedo is currently having a sale where you can purchase their watershorts and other great Speedo products at reduced prices. If you can’t find what you are looking for there, City Beach also has great swimwear including a huge selection of boardies.

Sports gear from Onsport

One of the great things about the sporting goods retailer, Onsport is that the product range is designed to cover both serious athletes and more casual participants. So they have, for example, a collection of sporting apparel and footwear from top clothing brands, and also stock things like sports technology, fitness equipment for the home gym, etc. They even sell official AFL, NRL and soccer merchandise so you can delight your Dad with the kit of his favourite team. Other sportswear retailers represented on the SchoolBuy website include: Chain Reaction Cycles, Sportitude, The Athletes Foot, Wiggle and more.

A subscription from iSubscribe

iSubscribe is the place to go for both digital and hardcopy magazine subscriptions. They have titles covering an enormous range of interests: from motoring to food, gardening, travel, sport, fitness, current affairs, science, business, computing and the list goes on. One of the great things about a subscription is it can be purchased at the last minute and the gifts keep coming with a treat every month. This also applies to their new collection of subscription boxes. With themes as diverse as craft beer, fishing tackle, coffee, socks, wine, etc. you can surprise your Dad with a little something each month and let him know you are thinking of him.

Happy gift shopping – and Happy Father’s Day for the 6th.  We hope it is a special day for you and the father(s) in your life.
