In under 2 weeks on Sunday 4th September most of us will be seeing or speaking with our fathers and maybe giving them a gift too. On the 15th August I wrote an article containing some wacky fathers day gifts but these may have not been ideal. Therefore if you want to get ahead of the curve and allow plenty of time for delivery then here are some more serious gift ideas he will actually want to receive.
Seeing as the previous article contained gifts that were gimmicky, this week you can expect to see items that will help you save money whilst still getting a rock star present that impresses the big guy. Expect everything from discount cards to Blu-ray home entertainment systems and even a machine that will chop his food for him.
PlayStation 4 1TB for $399
If your dad isn’t an Xbox fan, but the idea has wet your appetite for a father’s day gift then you will be happy to hear that there is a competing deal from JB Hi-Fi on the PlayStation 4 1TB. Earth, our resident deal hunter claims this is the best value for money console he has seen on the market. The PlayStation 4 bundle includes Deus Ex Mankind Divided plus 3 months of Stan for $399, plus shipping ($9.95 + $1.69).

Woolworths 10% Discount
If your dad doesn’t need much for fathers day and he would be quite content with simply a card and some chocolates then Woolworths are here to offer a helping hand. They currently have a 10% bonus on selected gift cards which means you can earn a $3 bonus on a $30 gift card or $5 bonus on a $50 gift card and some of those retailers include Supercheap Auto, Rebel and BCF.

Three T-shirts for $30
If your dad only really needs clothes then Hallensteins are offering a great opportunity to save money whilst still getting your dad more than just one t-shirt. No coupon code is needed for this deal, it’s simply 3 ‘tees’ for $30, which is a good deal especially when they have been reduced from $19.99 each. You have 77 styles to choose from and delivery is free on orders over $50, so it might be a good idea to spend $60 and get dad six t-shirts.

Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender for $40
If your dad likes to cook for himself or he lives alone then helping him prepare a healthy meal might be the best way to assist him through out the year, rather than giving him a one off present that may get discarded after a month or two. The Ninja Master prep from Spotlight handles food chopping, processing and blending all in one. It will even crush ice into snow in seconds, blend frozen fruits and chop fresh ingredients evenly.

Xbox One S 4K for $399
Those dads out there who are younger at heart and still love to play consoles every now and again may be very happy to receive the latest Xbox One that has recently been released. Even if they don’t like gaming it’s a very tempting device to simply have as your central 4K home entertainment system, Netflix 4K for example. This Xbox One bundle is the best value offer that our professional deal hunter Earth has found anywhere online and a great opportunity to get one of the hottest games on the market included within the bundle. It’s surprisingly cheap especially as it now offers 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 4K video streaming and High Dynamic Range for both games and videos. The total price for this Xbox One S 4K from JB hi-Fi is $399 plus shipping ($9.95 + $1.69).
