Gift ideas for dads who never drop a hint

Find a great Father’s Day gift with help from RACQ’s discount partners.

Every year in the lead up to Father’s Day I am faced with the same predicament – what should I buy Dad?

Like most Dads, he’s prone to never dropping a hint and he is always putting the rest of the family’s needs before his own.

While I love his theory that the ultimate gift is spending time with the family, or a cheap box of chocolates, the truth is I’d love to buy something he’s always wanted.

So, after asking him many direct, but subtle, questions, I was given two or three very cheap present ideas which could easily be included in my weekly grocery shop. It’s clear he doesn’t want me to spend money or go out of my way for him.

My usual Father’s Day go-to includes a pair of funny socks, bottle of aftershave or a new plant for the garden, but this year I want to get something different.

So, I’ve taken matters into my own hands and searched online. It wasn’t long until I realised that RACQ offers a huge range of discount partnerships, all of which are currently promoting Father’s Day gift ideas to members.

All the mothers, sons, daughters and grandchildren out there who are struggling to find a gift, check out the offers available with RACQ.
