We have the perfect gift guide for the dad who has everything – and who also has you totally lost for ideas this Christmas. From food tours to gin classes, and everything in between, here’s where to start your last minute mission.
For the dad who likes a challenge
If you have a dad who is keen on puzzles and riddles, send him along to Trapt for the ultimate escape room experience. We almost guarantee you that he’ll still be locked in the room when the timer runs out…
Does your dad love fishing? Why not get him a Boat4hire and set him a challenge to find dinner in the Yarra? He won’t even need a license to take these down the river.
For the foodie dad
Let Masterchef 2013 contestant and Melbourne foodie, Andrew Prior, take your dad to Melbourne’s best foodie locations, including dessert shops, food stores and restaurants, on a Queenies Food Tour.
Another great present idea – and something everyone needs to try at least once – is the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. It is the first travelling tram restaurant in the world, making for a unique and memorable experience for your foodie dad.
Has your dad got a sweet tooth? Then one of these Chocolate Walking Tours could be the perfect gift for his stocking this year.
For the quirky dad
If your dad thinks that he’s Seinfeld, what about gifting him a Comics Lounge gold membership? It’s a win-win: either he finally understands he’s not as funny as the professionals, or he’ll come home with some great new corkers.
The Backlot Rooftop drive-in cinema is about as quirky as Melbourne gets – combining the fun of a drive-in, with the utter Melbourne-ness of a rooftop bar. Tickets to one of these sessions over summer would be the perfect gift for your quirky dad.
Exhausted all the above possibilities and still stuck for an idea? How about sending your dad along to one of these great gin classes – that way, next time you have a family dinner, he’ll be able to make you the perfect drink. Who says Christmas is only about giving?
