Have you left Dad’s present to the last minute? We don’t blame you. In our experience, fathers (and grandfathers, brothers, and uncles for that matter) can be absolutely impossible to buy for, so we procrastinate about it until it’s almost too late. Sure, you can ironically buy them socks and a tie, but then the guilt kicks in when they’re genuinely grateful for it, leaving you feeling less than great about yourself.
Fortunately, just because you’ve left the old fella’s gift to the 11th hour doesn’t mean you need to resort to buying him a cheap pair of servo sunnies on the way to Christmas Day lunch (again). This year, Supercheap Auto has a wide selection of items that are perfect for Dad, along with the rest of the men in your life. To make things even easier, we’ve collected a few of our favourites below, which we already know a number of the Man of Many team’s fathers will be thrilled to unwrap on December 25th.
Blaupunkt Full HD Projector with Self-Inflatable Screen
Give Dad his very own outdoor cinema this Christmas with this inflatable screen and Full HD projector combo. Movie night will never be the same again now that Dad can throw on Die Hard and enjoy it under the stars. The projector’s 1080P resolution guarantees crisp visuals, while the built-in speakers mean you don’t need any additional devices. Plus, the enormous 117-inch self-inflatable screen is incredibly easy to set up and fold back away in the included bag once the credits roll. Price: AUD$399
Navman AUTO550 1080P Front And Rear Dash Camera
Give Dad extra peace of mind with Navman’s AUTO550 Front And Rear Dash Camera, which offers two-channel Full HD 1080P recording at both ends of his beloved ride. This set up records footage that’s always GPS-tagged so that Dad (and his insurer) can be certain of the precise location and speed at the time of any accident, while optimised day/night recording provides automatic optical adjustment to capture high levels of detail in challenging light conditions. Dad will really feel like you’ve got his back with this one. Price: AUD$199.99
Blaupunkt Eight-Inch Party Speaker
Is Dad the life of the party? He certainly will be with Blaupunkt’s Bluetooth-equipped party speaker, which comes with a pair of eight-inch woofers for thumping bass response, as well as two microphones so Dad can rope an accomplice into his karaoke shenanigans. RGB light modes give proceedings some additional visual flair, while AUX-IN and USB media playback provide the flexibility to keep the party going. Price: AUD$149
Go Play! Glowfly Aero Darts
Is it really an Aussie Christmas Day without some form of competitive outdoor entertainment? This set of darts will have everyone trying their best to outdo one another in the backyard, and with the glow-in-the-dark Pallino and four glow-in-the-dark darts, the competition can carry on into the night. A perfect way to bring the family together, which is ultimately what Dad wants above all else. Price: AUD$29.99
Tradie Beard Pimp Kit Gift Pack
