Chocolate, a four-course lunch and a cheeky staycation: local gifts for Fathers Day

Posted on

Find yourself desperately trying to find the perfect gift for dad but coming up short? Here are some of our favourite gifts for Father’s Day.

The best part? You’re supporting local businesses too!

The Canberra Distillery

With a large collection of small-batch gins, whiskeys and liquors, there’s bound to be something special for any gin lover. Stocked in store and around Canberra, it won’t be hard to find some in time for dad.

Unsure of what he will like? Or unable to pick just one? Been there, done that! Try one of their cubes which features four of their popular gins: Sloe, Blood Orange gin, HerCanberra’s own French Earl Grey and their signature Dry Gin. Our recommendation is the French Earl Grey. Are we biased? Absolutely – but for good reason! | @thecanberradistillery

Is dad more of a tea drinker? If so, we’ve got you covered! Recent winners of one gold, two silvers and one bronze medals from the Royal Hobart Show, we are sure you’ll find something to his liking here!

Crafted in Canberra, this hand-blended tea company is sure to delight the tastebuds and keep you delightfully warm from head to toe. And with a large range of black, green, herbal, oolong and chai we have no doubt we’ve just found his new favourite tea brand.

With gorgeous glass teapots to use for their blends, Dad’s tea time will soon become ‘me time’!|

Fathers Day Top Gun Double Feature

Start your engines and head into Dendy this Father’s Day and give dad what he really wants…hours of high-intensity powered jet engines in a Top Gun double feature washed down with a thirst-quenching BentSpoke beer flight.

Book here.

Cheeseburger-flavoured jerky anyone? Originating from a few sticks of handmade jerky passed around a pub, this business is now stocked in more than 15 locations Canberra-wide! Undecided on which one to get? They’ve created a special hamper for Father’s Day that includes six different flavours of jerky. Favourite child award? Tick! | @jonosjerky

Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

Treat dad to a decadent high tea with a twist this Father’s Day at Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar. Think delicious cheese plates, Wagyu silverside “Croque Monsieur”, chorizo sausage rolls, whisky chocolate mousse and more! Topped off with a Capital Brewing Co beer or a Piper-Heidsieck Champagne, book dad in for the ultimate gift. | @buvettecanberra

Junee Chocolate and Licorice

Okay, okay, it’s not from Canberra but with a factory located just outside of Wagga Wagga, these treats are perfect for satisfying any dad with a sweet tooth! From handcrafted organic liquorice to strawberry and pistachio chocolate blocks (yes, it tastes as good as it sounds) they’ve for you covered.

If a trip out to the factory isn’t your idea of fun, don’t worry! Junee products are stocked in more than eight locations in Canberra so there’s bound to be a spot nearby for you to snag some for dad—or yourself. Can’t quite decide on what to get? We recommend their chocolate pizza wheels! With a different flavour on each slice, you’re sure to find a new favourite. |@juneelicoriceandchocolate

Murrumbateman Chocolate Co.

Yes, yes, yes. We know we’ve already mentioned chocolate in this list but… who doesn’t love it!? Murrumbateman Chocolate Co is home to Sweet Pea & Poppy and Robyn Rowe Chocolates, and we know you’re bound to find something here!

Located 20 minutes out of Canberra, this little chocolate shop produces the most aesthetically pleasing artisan chocolates with a huge range of flavours! But if you’re not keen on the drive, you’re able to purchase Sweet Pea & Poppy chocolates from one of 27 locations in the Canberra region.

Have we even mentioned the yummy hot chocolates…? | @murrumbatemanchocolateco

Three Mills Bakery

Spoil Dad this Father’s Day with a bundle that will last you a whole day of good food. Included in the limited edition pack is a garlic and rosemary ciabatta, cheddar crostini, chocolate croissants as well as caramel, apple and custard danish and a beef brisket share pie. Yummo! | @threemillsbakery

Nothing says “I love you dad” like treating him to a four-course meal. Luckily Capitol Bar & Grill have prepared a hearty selection to help you celebrate the father in your family. Enjoy a relaxed four-course lunch with loved ones (prosciutto de parma with alto olive oil and guindella, steak frittes with cognac and peppercorn, and crispy barramundi with saltbush and kale as well as a frosty Capital Beer on arrival). It’s the perfect gift for the dad who has everything. |@qtcanberra
