Looking for Father's Day ideas?

Here are some ideas to “play around” with for Father’s Day. From books & belts to drones and drills, we’ve got you covered. Dad works hard, doesn’t he? Show how much he means to you by reminding him to play, too!

A daughter giving her Dad a present for Father's Day


My Dad worked hard all year. He was a teacher — and even during the holidays he taught summer school…and yet, he always also pursued hobbies from sport to woodworking. He still has heaps of hobbies though they’ve changed over the years. Now he plays the tuba in a few bands (I know that’s were I get my musical inspiration) and volunteers at the harbour on the big ships. Fun, right?!

Aren’t all Dads like that? They have varied interests. What does your favourite Dad enjoy?

If you need inspiration to spoil him this Father’s Day, look no further than here!

Doesn’t the Dad in your life deserve a little more fun in his life? Still stuck? If you’re like me, I LOVE getting gift cards so I can chose a little bit of everything! A gift card from The Base can be used at over 800 stores nationwide. So stop fretting and start celebrating the Dad (or Dads) in your life!
