We’ve also found our favourite ‘man-friendly’ recipes for you to try out this Sunday – see these here.


1: Iron Man 3 on DVD & Blu-Ray
Looking for the perfect gift for Dad (or maybe for yourself)? Iron Man 3 is available on Blu-ray & DVD August 28th! This is a film you and Dad can enjoy together. The nzgirl team saw it at the cinema and declared it a must-watch!

5: Blue September Swanndri Underwear
There’s no better way to let Dad know how much you care this Father’s Day than by reminding him to look after his health. Get Dad a pair of these super-comfy, 100% cotton, blue check Swanndri undies, which carry a ‘get checked’ message to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Plus, this year Swanndri is celebrating its 100th birthday, so these limited edition undies are an absolute must-have for every Kiwi Dad!
SHOP IT: $25 from any PlaceMakers store.

6: Saben Ace Wallet
Dad’s probably been carrying the same old wallet for years and it’s probably looking a little worse for wear. Saben has a great range of wallets that can hold all Dad’s cards, cash and receipts. They’re made from leather, are available in three different colours and come in a hand-crafted wooden box.
SHOP IT: $150 from Saben.


7: Jonah: My Story
Every Dad loves a good sports book. In Jonah’s new autobiography, he shares his personal and professional story. Jonah talks about the highs and lows of that last decade and shares astonishing revelations, including the split with his long-time manager and the breakdown of his marriage.
SHOP IT: $29.99 from Whitcoulls.

8: Shave & Clean Gift Set
Every Dad (or male for that matter) has to shave so why not make the experience a bit more luxurious with this shave and clean set from Smith & Caughey’s.
SHOP IT: $150 from Smith & Caughey’s.


9: Goldair Charcoal Kettle BBQs
What Dad doesn’t like a good BBQ? Cooking over charcoal is a great Kiwi art and now your Dad can do it in style with a Goldair BBQ. It will be perfect for when those summer BBQs kick off again.

10: TomTom Go Series
Perfect for the Dad who’s all about his gadgets, TomTom has completely redesigned its GPS and it’s better than ever!
