Father's Day Gifts 2017

Father's Day isn't something I can relate to very much, as I grew up without a father figure and although I do have one, I have not spoken to him in ten years or so.

So I thought I would take a different few on gifting for this day and chose gifts and I think would suit a dad or just men in general.


Tom Ford has just released their latest men's perfume "Noir Anthracite", I was lucky to get a sample of this. I find it quite a masculine fragrance and one for all year round.

With top notes of Bergamot, Schzuan pepper and Ginger. A spice and floral middle and a base of Sandal, Cedar and Ebony wood.

Priced between $125 - 175



I guess you could say this is one for my father as he is a barber and I also take pride in my grooming.

VS Sassoon has just brought out the X6 Pro Clippers. Cordless for easy travel, heavy duty Li-Ion rechargeable battery, curved combs and Japanese steel blades make this product one of the best in its price range (usually sells for around $100AUD).

I have recently acquired one but have yet to put it through its passes. I am excited to do so though as the level of precision for amateur use is quite high.


Some men have a man-cave, others just enjoy the essence of theatre-like quality sound in the comfort of their home.

Edifier LUNA E235 has an award-winning flawless life-like sound that will allow your dad to immerse himself in the movie or feel like he’s in the stadium watching that epic match.

With a wireless subwoofer and Bluetooth capability, this little BIG sound system is a great buy at around $730.


Starward whisky (not whiskey) wanted to make a whisky an Australian using our Barley, Barrels, and Climate.

This part is my favourite, the tasting notes; I really don't get how they hit some of these and some reviews I have read say that some whiskies have rubbery notes (not too tasty).

"Aroma of ripe orchard fruits: pears, bananas and apples with vinous raisins and dried figs. Caramel, vanilla and marzipan balance the fruit.

The palate is filled with rich, toasty caramel, creme brulee, more fruit, pepper, sandalwood, nutmeg and marzipan.

A full, sweet, juicy mouthfeel, with a youthful, spicy, dry finish."

Sounds a little like pudding to me but it is pleasant to drink indeed. priced around $85AUD
