Last minute gift ideas for Father’s Day
- It’s Father’s Day this weekend, but there’s still time to find the perfect gift online
- Consider experiences, vouchers or same-day delivery and save
- finder.com.au’s last minute Father’s Day hub compares quick-turnaround options
September 4, 2015, Sydney, Australia – There’s still time to get dads a Father’s Day gift and save money by doing it online, according to one of Australia’s biggest comparison websites, finder.com.au, which has launched a last minute Father’s Day hub (www.finder.com.au/last-minute-fathers-day-gifts).
The hub includes gifts that have same-day delivery, gift vouchers and experiences, where Aussies can save up to 50 percent off.
Michelle Hutchison, Money Expert at finder.com.au, said online shopping is the way to go if you’re yet to buy your Father’s Day gift.
“While it’s recognised across Australia, it can easily be the case that Father’s Day creeps up on you. That’s why finder.com.au has created a dedicated hub where you can still find the perfect gift for your dad and don’t need to walk into a store.
“The hub breaks down gifts into three main categories: experiences, vouchers or same-day delivery. Now you have no excuse not to find a suitable present, especially with so many online options.
“We're seeing more and more Australians avoiding the shops and finding what they need online, especially this Father’s Day. In fact, the past week we’ve seen four times (408 percent) more people coming to finder.com.au/deals than the same time last year.
“It's convenient and often much cheaper. But Aussies need to hurry if they want to avoid the rush because shopping online means you need to take into account delivery time to make sure your gift arrives before Father's Day. Luckily, these items can either be delivered today or you’ll receive a voucher immediately post purchase."
