Father’s Day is a great time to spend time with dad and the family.  He’s been working hard, he’s been the taxi driver (or will be) and of course Father’s Day is the perfect time to treat dad with something special.

At Gifts That Thrill we know that budgets vary and that not every gift is within reach, even if he’s the best dad going.  There are many ways of showing him that you care and how much he means to you whether its a big, amazing present or a fun gift to make him laugh.  It’s why we’ve come up with a range of Father’s Day gifts that is perfect for any budget and all dads out there.

Stunt Driving

Petrol Head dads will envy the opportunity to be James Bond for the day or part of the Italian job.  As the name suggests, this is a ride he’ll not forget and he’ll even be taken up on two wheels by a professional stunt driver.  Drive or ride in a stunt car – is that your dad?


V8 Race Car Drive (or Ride)

This V8 driving experience at one of Australia’s best known race tracks is ideal for V8 loving dads that love brute power.  With this experience, your dad gets to drive a V8 around the track with an instructor beside him.  He’ll have the full race suit on, a helmet and he’ll be able to talk to and listen to his instructor using the race mic and speakers.  He may not challenge the top V8 drivers (or maybe he will), but he’ll have lots of fun trying and can get a video on a USB to show the family

Brewery Tour

Dad knows what a good beer should taste like – a nice beer to relax with but does he know how it’s made?  Perhaps not, but that can change with this brewery tour just for him.  Your dad can learn all about the amber nectar, how they are crafted before enjoying the moment of pure indulgence – cheers!

Shark Diving

If you’re thinking of really pushing the alarm bells this year, well you might want to try putting dad into a tank full of friendly creatures.  The Introductory shark dive might send shudders down his spine but its completely safe.  He’ll have time to learn how to operate the scuba equipment before he goes under to play with the sharks and other sea creatures.  The family can all watch as he swims by.
