With Father’s Day being a little over a month away, it’s not a bad idea to start thinking about what to get dear old dad before the inevitable last minute buying spree creeps up on us – generally resulting in panicked overspending. In an effort to avoid all of this, here’s a quick run through of a variety of deals on Buckscoop to suit a number of different types of dads.
For The Wine Loving Dad
If your dad’s a red wine drinker, you can’t go wrong with this bargain offer from First Choice Liquor on their Premium Regions Cabernet bundle. The case of six includes three bottles Sisters Run Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon and another three bottles of Bleasdale Grapepickers Cabernet for a total cost of $59 (add $6.95 for delivery).
By comparison, both of these winery’s wines are priced at around $20 a bottle over at Vintage Cellars and Liquorland – not to mention First Choice themselves if you were to buy these wines outside of the bundle. Just so that you’re aware, should you decide to go for two bundles then they’ll also throw in free shipping.
For The Outdoors Dad
Kathmandu have been running an up to 70% off sale for the past week or so which has received a lot of attention online. This is primarily due to the fact that the current levels of discounts mean you’ll be paying well below the usual hefty list prices of their merchandise both online and in-store.
One particularly good offer right now is on this Peyto men’s jacket which has been discounted from a dizzying $349 down to just $49. At this price however, you’ll probably have to act very quickly since getting a Kathmandu jacket for this cheap doesn’t happen too often. If you wanted to get something else small to add to it, they also have a number of items on sale at under $10 including longs sleeve tops, polypro clothing, hats and gloves.
