Five Father’s Day gift ideas … for the hard-to-buy for Dad


With Father’s Day coming up soon (this year it falls on Sunday 3rd September) you’re probably having thoughts like: “Can I get away with a Bunnings voucher again?” or “Slippers…mmm…boring…” Curb your gift anxiety with these five gift ideas for a different Father’s Day.


Fathers are notoriously hard to buy for and it’s easy to fall into the cliches – although slippers, pyjamas and socks are useful gifts.  But if your dad has a bit of a gourmet streak or likes the finer things in life, try these ideas from Hill Street Home.


1.     A gift hamper

Hampers are a great gift solution for the notoriously hard-to-buy-for people in your life. Our team at Hill Street Home have curated a great selection here. Our two bespoke Father’s Day Hampers, You’re the best, Dad $145, and the Love you, Dad hamper, $125, both feature products a gourmet dad will appreciate – a Tasmanian-made chopping board, Tasmanian chocolate or rock salt, and visually inspiring books such as Annalise Gregory’s How Wild Things Are and Undiscovered Tasmania by Rochelle and Walter Dare. 


2.     A cheese hamper

If the dad in your life appreciates fine cheese, our Big Cheese Hamper, $135, will hit the mark. This hamper features four Tasmanian cheeses and some Tasmanian-made accompaniments, as well as a stylish Laguiole cheese knife and a locally made reusable beeswax cheese wrap. 


3.    Chocolates

Our range of handmade chocolates are a great choice for chocolate-loving dads. Drop into any of our Hill Street stores to see the full range. We love anything from the Koko Black range, Monsieur Truffe dark chocolate-coated almonds, and we can never go past these from the Cat’s Tongue in HuonvillePrices start at $22.50 for a box of six.


4.    Whisky and accessories

At Hill Street Home in West Hobart we have an excellent range of Tasmanian Whisky.  Lark has some great gift packs like a small bottle of Lark Single Malt Whisky and a whisky glass for $90, a sampler of four different Lark Whiskies and a whisky glass for $180, and a bottle of Lark Symphony No 1 and a small whisky glass for $140.  We have Whisky Lover accessory and tasting sets which include whisky tumblers, whisky stones and tasting notes for $94.95, and hip flasks for $52. If your dad fancies himself a bit of a mixologist, we have a mixology set including a shaker and strainer for $99.00. 


5.    Wine

Add to your dad’s cellar with our range of excellent Tasmanian wines from our West Hobart, South Hobart and Lauderdale stores. If you’d like them gift-packed and delivered have a look at our Two Wine Hampers or our “You Choose” wine hampers which can be delivered anywhere in Tasmania and the mainland.
