Foodie gift ideas for Father’s Day

Are you looking for a way to celebrate your dad (or the other special men in your life) this Father’s Day? It’s on Sunday 6 September, so it’s time to spring into action and organise your restaurant bookings and gift ideas. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of ideas to suit your food-loving dad/grandad/step-dad/mum-who-is-a-dad too.

Something to open

Everyone loves opening a present and foodie dads are no exception. Here’s some great ideas you can get to suit your number one man!

  • For dads that love a bit of tech to go with their food, something like sous vide machine is a great piece of kit that will help dad to make perfectly cooked steaks, chicken breasts and so much more
  • Another great piece of kitchen kit is a mandoline, perfect for finely slicing all sorts of fruits and vegetables
  • If dad loves to get behind the pans, you can get great value frypans and saucepans from Japan Home Centre
  • Finally, for caffeine freaks, something like a V60 pour over or AeroPress (available from The Steam Engine) is a fantastic gift idea that will make awesome coffee for the fraction of the price of an espresso machine
  • Australia Post also has a great range of gifts for dad, like reusable straws, camping cutlery, barbeque tools, heaps of kitchen gadgets and more – check out their store on the ground level at Chatswood Interchange

Somewhere to eat

Of course, going out for a meal as a family is always fun. Happily, Chatswood is blessed with so many options to suit whatever dad’s favourite meal is. For something a bit different, we love the Sichuan chain, Spicy Joint, right at Chatswood Interchange.

Or if you just want to grab a coffee (or tea) and a slice of amazing cake, there’s no shortage of options for sweet tooths too. Why not try Pishon Patisserie and Cake Café or Tea Journal.

Don’t forget something for a toast

If your dad doesn’t mind a bit of a tipple, it’s hard to go wrong with something great for him to drink. Whether you’re looking for a fantastic whiskey, a case of craft beer or a bottle of a wow- factor wine, the team at BWS can help you to find just the right thing. They’ve also got a great range of non-alcoholic drinks if that’s more to your dad’s taste.

Something to do

Are experiences more your dad’s thing? There’s no shortage of food-related activities you can do not too far from Chatswood. Red Balloon has so many options to choose from like an American BBQ cooking class in Neutral Bay, deep sea fishing, and pub tours. We’d love to know how you decide to spoil your dad (or dad-figure) and what foodie delights you gift him this Father’s Day.
