Top 5 gift ideas for dad: The Remix Father’s Day gift guide

Fathers-day-1 It’s Father’s Day this Sunday and if your dad is anything like most Kiwi blokes, then buying for him can be a bit of a nightmare. Even though your dad might say he doesn’t want anything, you have to get him something a little more meaningful than a Lotto ticket for all his awesomeness. Never fear! The annual Remix Father’s Day gift guide is below, so have a read of our top five present suggestions and head out on Saturday to grab dad something special. There are also a few freebies in there for you to get your hands on. Maybe buy dad a Lotto ticket as well… he’ll share the money with you if he wins.

1. The Penney Pompeii shirt from Gubb & Mackie

This utility shirt with two chest pockets in Italian cotton and mother-of-pearl buttons has shades of olive, mushroom and washed denim. Worn either buttoned-up or unbuttoned over a T-shirt, it’s the ultimate shirt for the weekend getaway. If your dad fancies himself as a stylish lad, then get him one of these to wear on the boat or when he’s manning the barbeque this summer. Visit here to buy. Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 4.26.58 PM
