Father’s day is not too far away now, so I have curated a list of online gift ideas for dad for 2021. I have broken up the online father’s day gift ideas into the following categories. Just click on the category below to jump straight to those gift ideas for dad:
These next few gifts are all items for the backyard. Most of us have been spending more time at home and there is a big chance it will be the same until the end of the year, so these items will help make it a little more fun!
Unique one of a kind Australian hardwood bench seat – handmade from reclaimed fence posts, this bench will seat four and make a great addition to a native garden.
Firepit – we bought a firepit a couple of years ago (much more basic than this!) and we love it. It has been great to use during lockdown as a way to breakup the monotony of eating inside all the time.
Clothes are the next set of online gift ideas for dad for father’s day. They also have a lockdown vibe to them too!
Weekend sweatpants – or if in lockdown, everyday sweatpants! These sweatpants are crafted in a breathable blend of organically-grown bamboo and organic cotton. Super comfy!
Running shorts – there is a lot more running and a lot less gyming at the moment, so these neo-mint shorts will brighten dad’s day. if he is a runner.

This final category of online gift ideas for Father’s Day is all about books! I think books make great presents.
Loving Country – A Guide to Sacred Australia – given international travel is not in sight soon, this is the perfect time to give Dad this book! Loving Country is a powerful and essential guidebook that offers a new way to travel and discover Australia through an Indigenous narrative. In this beautifully designed and photographed edition, co-authors Bruce Pascoe and Vicky Shukuroglou show travellers how to see the country as herself, to know her whole and old story, and to find the way to fall in love with her, our home.
Featuring 18 places in detail, from the ingenious fish traps at Brewarrina and the rivers that feed the Great Barrier Reef, to the love stories of Wiluna and the whale story of Margaret River, there is so much to celebrate. This immersive book covers history, Dreaming stories, traditional cultural practices, Indigenous tours and the importance of recognition and protection of place. It offers keys to unlock the heart of this loving country for those who want to enrich their understanding of our continent, and for travellers looking for more than a whistle-stop tour of Australia.
The Comfort Book by Matt Haig – perfect for the times we are in. The Comfort Book is a collection of little islands of hope. It gathers consolations and stories that give new ways of seeing ourselves and the world. Matt Haig’s mix of philosophy, memoir and self-reflection builds on the wisdom of philosophers and survivors through the ages, from Marcus Aurelius to Nellie Bly, Emily Dickinson to James Baldwin.
This is the book to pick up when you need the wisdom of a friend, the comfort of a hug or just to celebrate the messy miracle of being alive.
