Top five gifts this Father's Day

WRITTEN ON 28 August 2017

Stuck for a gift for dad - or grandad - this Father's Day? We've selected some of the top gifts for even the hardest to buy for bloke.


T2 tea mug plus a box of Gone Surfing tea

Best for… the dad that needs to destress

 

Is dad in need of some chill out time? T2 Gone Surfing is the perfect blend for dad with a herbal and botanical boost of flowers and herbs for when he needs to take a break. Perfect on its own or with a drizzle of honey, this blend contains a mix of chamomile, lavender, spearmint, passionflower, lemon balm, rose petals and linden. Pair it with a new tea mug for a gift that’ll destress dad.

 

Bennetts of Mangawhai Chocolates

Best for… the dad with the sweet tooth

 

A box of these chocolates is sure to put a smile on any father (or grandfather’s) face. With a philosophy of using locally grown ingredients, rare New Zealand flavours and a focus on hand crafted quality, these chocolates are next level. Grab a selection box and let dad work his way through flavours as diverse as blackberry truffle, chilli spice truffle and 42 below Feijoa Caramel. If you’re lucky, he might even share.

 

Glass Eye Creek Wild Meat Sauce

Best for… the bloke’s bloke who loves a good BBQ

 

If your dad eats meat, then this is the perfect accompaniment. Beef, pork, venison, chicken, fish, lamb, prawns, mutton, rabbit, duck, burgers, pies - this list goes on. Whether it’s to top off your dinner or as a marinade or part of a casserole sauce or gravy, dad’s will find a myriad of ways to use this gift.

 

Hakanoa Lemon, Ginger and Manuka Honey syrup

Best for… the dad who needs a wellness boost

 

Made with 48 per cent fresh Fijian root ginger, blended with a dash of New Zealand lemon juice and organic Manuka honey, this is an utterly delicious and incredibly easy drink. Dissolve it in sodas, hot water, hot toddies or just tap water – this is perfect to ward off the winter nasties that are hanging around, yet just as delish cold on a hot summer’s day.

 

Blue Frog Kaipara Kumara with Mixed Spice and Maple Paleo Cereal

Best for… the health nut dad who likes to keep well

 

Cereal for Father’s Day, we hear you asking? But this is perfect for those healthy dads and is so good it’s even picked up a win in the NZ Food Awards. Kumara baked in moreish, grain free clusters with protein-powered nuts and seeds, drizzled with organic Canadian maple syrup and dusted with warming spices, this is one gift that will work for gluten and dairy free dads too. It’s vegan, has no sulphites and is not just a cereal but a perfect crunchy dukkah on eggs.
