Father’s Day 2020 gift ideas you don’t have to leave the house for

Posted: 14 August 2020 9:04 am


In a time when our ability to visit physical stores is limited, online shopping is booming. And it's a platform where you can not only shop for yourself, but for your loved ones too.

If you want to treat your dad this Father's Day without having to get off the couch, check out these brilliant gift ideas.

Sponsored by Gift Card Store. Treat dad with a Personalised Gift Card to use anywhere that accepts Mastercard – online and in-store. Design your own card. If you can't see dad on the actual day or left it to the last minute, send him a virtual gift card by email.

1. A customised gift card

Do you want to make sure your dad will love his Father's Day present? Well, rest assured, because our favourites over at Gift Card Store give you the option to design your very own Mastercard gift card.

Alongside the virtual and physical cards available, these personalised gift cards are great for those that are a little hard to buy for.

Not only does it allow him to treat himself to whatever he wants, whenever he wants, but you can also design it to have a photo of you or of the family. The card can be used anywhere in the world that accepts Mastercard, both online and in-store.

2. An edible hamper or arrangement

Does it seem like your dad has everything? Similar to a gift card, an edible hamper can be tailored and personalised to your father's personal tastes.

Stores like Edible Blooms and The Hamper Emporium can supply you with an edible arrangement of food and/or alcohol. Whether he's a beer or a wine man or whether he loves sweet or salty snacks, an edible hamper is one of the best ways to guarantee he'll love his gift. The best part? You can order it online and even have it delivered straight to his door on the special day.

3. A book of his choice

Shopping online for books is one of our favourite things to do – and it just so happens to be a great gift idea. Why? Because you can browse a huge selection of titles and easily find something your dad will love.

Some online stores like Booktopia have dedicated sections to Father's Day, and it's got you covered with tons of suitable recommendations. You can sort through all the different types, topics and price ranges.

We also love this gift idea if you're a mum shopping for a Father's Day gift from the kids – all family members can appreciate a new book to read at bedtime.

4. A new electronic device

While we're all at home social distancing, it's no doubt that at some point, we've looked for something new to help pass the time. A popular pick during the pandemic has definitely been the Nintendo Switch. Favoured for its ability to play on the go and on the big screen, the Switch is a device that the whole family can use and enjoy.

If you're keen to get your hands on one (or any tech device like this), we recommend heading straight to eBay. Not only does the online marketplace carry a huge range of products, but there's almost always a killer deal to take advantage of. eBay Plus members can also score free shipping on a bunch of items, making the whole shopping from your couch thing a lot easier.

5. A bottle of his favourite liquor

If all else fails, you can't go wrong with shopping his favourite bottle, whether it's a bottle of beer, wine, spirit or even champagne, and having it delivered to his door!

Dan Murphy's is one of those stores that can help you achieve exactly that. If you do feel like braving the outside world, you can opt for contactless pick-up. But thankfully, you also have the option of standard delivery as well as delivery now – which is under two hours for metro areas.
