He works hard throughout the year to provide for his family. He mows the lawn, takes care of household repairs and even plays the role of taxi driver, transporting the kids to football practise and social events.
There's so much that dads do for us every day, so why does it always seem so hard to find the perfect gift for Father's Day?
Year after year we struggle to find something for the man who seems to already have everything and if ties, power tools and novelty socks are your standard go-to gifts for dear old dad, maybe it's time to try something different.
For example, does your dad love to cook? Whether he enjoys spending time in the kitchen whipping up a gourmet feast or standing over the barbecue while grilling a big juicy steak or some sausages, you could treat him to a cotton apron and a set of oven gloves. These are available in a number of masculine designs that foodie fathers will love.
To make your present for Chef Dad even more special, you could create a gift hamper that includes a variety of items. Instead of a wicker basket, purchase a sauce pan or a large serving bowl and arrange the items carefully inside.
Add in a few cooking utensils like wooden spoons, whisks and spatulas and maybe some of his favourite ingredients - like a bottle of barbeque sauce or infused cooking oils. Depending on your dad, a nice bottle of wine or a couple bottles of speciality ale might also be good additions.
Once you're done, top it all off with a big bow and don't forget to include a thoughtful card that tells him just how much you appreciate everything he does.
Alternatively, if your pop has other hobbies, such as golf or gardening, there are a number of printed tea towels to choose from that reflect these themes. Humorous items with funny sayings are also available and are sure to bring a smile to his face every time he uses them.
