7 Luxury Gift Ideas For Father’s Day
The advantage of celebrating Father’s Day much later in the calendar year is that you are privy to the best gift ideas at least a few months beforehand. Ideally, you would have spent that time pondering, planning and purchasing long before the first Sunday of September rolls around. But time has a habit of racing by unnoticed so if you have found yourself still empty handed, then this gift guide will point you in more than one direction.
#1: The Power of A Drive
If one of your father’s boyhood dreams involved testing the limits of a powerful luxury car then a drive day at the Porsche Sport Driving School will hit that sweet spot. From drifting to taking corners at high speed, he will spend an exhilarating day putting pedal to the metal in a controlled environment minus the speed limits. It will be an experience he will talk about for years to come. Head out to a school within Australia or take your pick from the international destinations.

#2: Tee Time Luxury
Many of Australia’s magnificent golf courses are inaccessible to the public due to membership restrictions and an extensive wait list. But LuxGolf is able to lift those velvet ropes to give your father an unforgettable VIP pass to these exclusive fairways and greens.
The luxury golf touring company will also provide transportation – in a Porsche, no less! – and the finest clubs and equipment. The only decision your father will have to make is whether he would like to hit that hole-in-one by the ocean, in the bush or in the mountains.
#3: Carry On In Style
Your father may say he does not need another weekend travel bag but he will change his mind once he sets eyes on these beauties. There is the classic Il Bisonte Travel Bag that is designed for decades of use. Then there is the Saddle Weekender Bag by Ralph Lauren made from calfskin and finished with polished metal accents. Or go all out with the Tom Ford Buckley Alligator Duffle that boasts an exclusive signature zipper.
#4. Preserve His Story
Everyone has a story to share, and nowhere are stories more important than in families. But how many of us can actually remember and pass on the exact details of our parents’ lives? Well, you can once your father publishes his memoir with the help of Truly Experiences.
The Lifebook package includes face-to-face meetings with a private interviewer anywhere in the world, a ghostwritten autobiography in your father’s voice and its publication into five beautiful leather-bound books. This is a gift that will keep on giving.
#5: If The Shirt Fits
One size does not fit all when it comes to men’s shirts especially if your father has cultivated his own sense of style. Bespoke Shirts will speak to that sense with its impressive range of collars and cuff shapes, pocket designs, stitching, buttons and monograms.
The experience is equally noteworthy. Your father will be measured, fitted and walked through the different style options to create a shirt that he will reflect his individual personality. Be warned though that he may want to keep wearing it over and over again!
#6: Guru Of The Grill
With summer just three months away, it is time for your father to brush up on his barbecue skills and recipes. Perhaps he would like to try his hand at grilling seafood or creating a tapas menu. Or perhaps he has grander ambitions to take over this year’s Christmas lunch.
Whichever it is, the BBQ School will make sure he is prepped and ready to roast. And if he thinks he has found his next calling, the school has a range of great equipment that will set him up to be a BBQ Roasting Master.
#7: The Mystery Box
Anyone who says gift boxes are passé has not received one from Luxe Gifting & Co. Their luxury gift box hampers are packed with gorgeous essentials, handpicked by a team of stylists across Australia and New Zealand. Choose from themed gift boxes like the Travel Gift Box, Simply Chef Gift Box or The Gardener Gift Box. Alternatively, get your father a gift card and leave him spoilt for choice!
