We asked the Dads of Brisbane Airport what they would like for Father’s Day this year.
Here’s the items on top of their wish list and where to find them.
Noise cancelling headphones
Perfect in the office to drown out a chatty colleague and even better at home when the kids are watching Frozen for the 99th time, a set of headphones was a top pick for our BNE dads.
Tech2go has a huge range of technology accessories to keep Dad connected.
More than a few of our BNE Dads mentioned they would like LEGO, and some were very specific with their requests. Who knew that there was a Birds of Paradise set that will satisfy the garden-loving LEGO master in your life?
The LEGO Store is the place to go to add to your collection of tiny coloured bricks.
A bottle of fancy Gin
The start of spring is a great time to serve a fancy gin – over ice with some tonic and cucumber, please. This is the gift Dad asks for when he wants to keep his significant other happy as well. In fact, there's a good chance my husband will get this as his present. Cheers!
There’s a fantastic range at BNE Marketplace, including every AvGeek’s favourite – Aviation Gin.
A new suitcase
One BNE Dad told me he really wants and needs a new suitcase, even if he can't fly very far right now. He just wants to be ready for take off. Sounds like a fine idea!
The team at Samsonite will have the perfect luggage for your Dad.
An icy cold beer
“Men are simple creatures – give me a beer and I’m very happy” – who could deny this BNE Dad’s request?
He specifically wants to try the Tailwind Ale at Newstead Brewing Co. Coming right up fine sir!
If none of the above tickle your fancy, then perhaps the tried and tested gift of socks will do the job. Long gone are the days of men wearing plain black or grey socks to the office. A statement pair of colourful toe warmers will set your Dad apart at home or in the office.
The good folks at Mott & Mulberry will have the perfect pair!
