Internationally, Father’s Day is a celebration that takes place every third Sunday of June. A woman from the USA, Sonora Dodd, proposed it to celebrate her father, a war veteran and single dad to six children. Before long, Father’s Day was celebrated around the world. Here in Australia, the day is observed every first Sunday of September. We use this day to appreciate the father, who, as the head of the family, has sacrificed daily to make our lives easier and happier. Appreciation comes in many ways; a nice gift is one of the best, and fathers love a well-presented gift hamper.
- Wine and Gourmet Hamper
The ultimate gift hamper for any dad who drinks is a beautifully presented wine hamper. A basket or signature box is usually filled with delightful snacks, and savoury wines finished with a gift card for the best surprise. If dad has a taste for good wine, the Australian Shiraz is a good example when accompanied by a number of treats like nuts, crackers or smooth chocolate.
- Red Wine Gifts
Australia is one of the most well-known of the wine-producing regions of the world, producing a variety of red and white wines. If your old man is a classic red connoisseur, an excellent red Bordeaux will go well with carefully curated savoury snacks.
- White Wine Gifts
New Zealand sauvignon blanc and oaky Australian chardonnay are examples of luxury white wines to accompany your gourmet snacks. If your dad can’t decide whether to go with the red or white, you can go for both in a luxury wine combo paired with fudge, caramel and chocolate treats.
- Wine and Cheese Selection
A good wine duo like a Sauvignon or cabernet would go well with sweet treats for dads with a sweet tooth. A cheese connoisseur would love a selection of cheddar, Wensleydale cheese paired up with delicious cake nibbles and savoury red and white wines. Its sophisticated palate will make a great Father’s Day present or gift for wine and foodie dads.
