Fathers Day is fast approaching, meaning it’s just about time to recognise and spoil that special father figure in your life.

Whether your Dad is at home among the great outdoors, can always be found shouting at the footy in front of the TV, constantly fiddling with his car, or often cooking up a storm on the barbecue, we’ve got a gift for that. 

Check out the best fathers day gift ideas for every kind of Dad this year.

There is a bottle of TRUFF hot sauce to suit every palate, and they’ll go perfectly as basting for some hot and spicy chicken wings on the BBQ. Or any dish for that matter.  

The Australian-based brand is doing hot sauce a little differently, featuring smooth blends of ripe chilli peppers, organic agave nectar, black truffle and savoury spices. A pack is the best way for Dad to experience all the flavours and find his staple – you can go the mini pack with x4 43g TRUFF mini’s, or the variety pack featuring the OG hot sauce, hotter sauce, and white truffle blend.

Traeger Grills Accessories

The Traeger Grills porcelain chicken throne is fit for a king, aka dad.

This little contraption keeps the chicken moist through-out the roasting process, meaning he’ll be upping his chicken roast game and you’ll be getting to enjoy it – win-win! 

Or, if he’s into grilling meat on the regular, you could grab him Traeger’s titanium-coated BBQ shears, suited for cutting effortlessly through skin and bone when serving.
