Father's Day 2023 gift guide

This Father's Day, get the father figure in your life something in a box that's a bit outside of the box

Pull out all the stops this Father’s Day for the father figure in your life and treat Dad to an unexpected gift.

We’ve put together a gnarly collection of goodies for Father’s Day to get you thinking outside the usual line-up of prezzie gift ideas.

Clean up your act


The best Father’s Day gift that should also score major brownie points with the entire household: this new-to-the-market Winbot W1 Pro is a total game-changer for the tedious task of window cleaning.

We tested it in our workshop shed, which was a bit of an unfair ask (due to the layers of grime), but the results were impressive. The hard-working robot suctions onto windows and other glass surfaces and intelligently maps and cleans its way around, just like a robot vacuum would on floors.

Safety features include high suction, a physical tether, plug-in power, edge detection, anti-slip, and air pressure compensation. Perfect for high exterior windows without needing to teeter up a ladder. Plus, it can be driven from a phone app (so you can relax on your fave chair while the windows get cleaned)

Stay warm


Treat Dad to the warmth and versatility of wool with this Swanndri Kaituna Sherpa jacket.

Stay toasty warm this winter with this hard-working combo of 70% wool and 30% merino with sherpa fleece lining and collar. Throw on over a sweater or t-shirt and you’re good to go for any mid-winter barbie.

Make it work


At last, a hard-wearing work shirt durable enough to handle the workload and wash up for presentable weekend wear. The RB Sellars Burton Workshirt is available in light, mid, and heavy weight and in nine different colours to suit your preference.

A closer shave


Treat Dad to a slick new shaving ritual with a return to classic shaving tools (with a modern twist).

Indulge in the sophisticated formulations of Aesop with Moroccan Neroli shaving serum, Moroccan Neroli post-shave lotion, sleek double-edge razor (with Merkur Solingen razor blades), and shaving brush.

Power up your day


Boost your daily power capabilities with this three-in-one Belkin Boost Charge Pro. Perfect for those who regularly charge through their battery life with a busy online workload, this magnetic fast-charging module for Apple Watch charges in a fraction of the time, while the MagSafe charging pad delivers the fastest possible charge for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models. Spend less time charging and more time working.

Be a Bright Spark


Stay seen this winter in the icebreaker Shell+ Merino Hooded Jacket (and matching pants). This highly weather-resistant shell jacket features the latest technology and innovation from icebreaker.

Made from 100% pure merino wool with a durable PFC_free water-repellent finish, it’s also fully seam-sealed and features zippered chest vents. Perfect to transition from on the slopes to everyday wear in your workplace for comfortable weatherproof visibility.

Travel in style


This Hawkesbury holdall from RM Williams is designed for the rough and tumble of travel.


Perfect for a daily work/travel bag as well as a weekend getaway bag, the classic duffle shape is crafted from smooth full-grain leather for rugged endurance. 

Put your best foot forward


Step out in style with this quality Earthkeepers boot from Timberland — perfect for everyday workwear as well as weekend style. Features removable anti-fatigue footbed with premium leather upper, linings made from recycled plastic bottles, and recycled rubber outsoles.
