One for him: our essential Father’s Day gift guide

It’s in the little things. From tickets to see his favourite musician, a custom suit tailored to size or the latest tech that you know he’d never buy for himself. See the RUSSH Father’s Day edit here.

We’re always on the hunt for something new and Bode is just what you need to add to the wardrobe. One of a kind pieces, handcrafted from antique fabrics resulting in clothes you’ll want to keep for yourself.

While we traditionally head to the whiskey aisle when it comes to Father’s Day gifts, this year we’re in the clear with Suntory’s latest addition to its premium spirits portfolio: Haku Vodka. Distilled in Japan using 100 per cent Japanese white rice and bamboo charcoal filtration, this delicate craft vodka is perfect neat or blended into his favourite cocktail. For something a little different.

Not necessarily something he’d buy for himself – but why should Dad be deprived of the tech wonders we use every day? With a multitude of colours and styles to suit all listening types, queue up his favourite album and let Beats by Dre do the rest.

The ultimate cool guy. Homegrown Australian brand Charlton offers a curated selection of premium quality, durable and functional garments. Think simple and sleek casualwear with a luxurious feel. Ranging from boxy T-shirts and shirts, muscle tanks and even corduroy shorts. These are the staple pieces you’ll encourage to be kept on high rotation.

Hailing from Los Angeles, jazz tenor saxophonist Kamasi Washington is hosting one performance only at Sydney’s Opera House. Buy the tickets for two and make a night of it. When an artist that’s worked with the likes of Snoop Dog and Kendrick Lamar comes to town and descriptors like ‘visionary’, ‘cosmic’ and ‘transcendent’ are getting thrown around, you know this isn’t one to miss.

Samsung’s extensive line of mobile phones and tablets mean you can stay in touch with your favourite guy at all times. Our pick is the Galaxy S10 for it’s wide range of photography features and Power Up charge mode, so he can share his battery with you when yours inevitably drains.

From fabrication, collars, buttons and embroidery, the choice is his. For the ultimate in timelessness.

Saturday Night Live, Anchorman, Portlandia. Fred Armisen’s unique brand of humour is evident in some of your favourite comedy works over the years. Coming to Sydney’s Enmore Theatre for his live show, grab yourself some tickets and let the laughs roll in. Dad jokes no more.
