Picking out a gift basket can be a fantastic choice for Father’s Day. But with so many options available, it can be difficult to find a gifting option that works for you. Generic, branded options can run the risk seeming to offer a lack of care, and assembling you own can be haphazard or excessively expensive

So, why should you think about picking one up this year and what should you think about when putting your gift together?

Why choose a gift basket?

While Father’s Day is a source of celebration for many, the disruption brought about by Covid 19 has derailed a lot of people’s gifting plans. Considering your social distancing is essential to help protect yourself and others – with those that are immunocompromised or occupying older age brackets proving to be much more vulnerable to the virus.

While this is manageable, it locks off a lot of options.

While a trip to a fancy restaurant, crowded sports game, or trip to the cinema may be out of the question; a socially distanced picnic can be a fantastic option for those keen to celebrate a special day of the year. Picking out a gift basket allows you to safely share a wonderful moment with good food and company, whether eaten inside or out.

What should I consider?

If you’re thinking about picking a gift basket up, thinking through your purchase can help you secure the best possible gift for your Dad. Some things to consider include-

Location:

Take some time to think about where you want to enjoy the basket or make the delivery. Depending on the regulations in your location, meeting in a public park or your garden can help provide a memorable social experience and a ray of light during – what for many – can be a difficult time. If you’re looking for the broadest range of coverage, checking out Father’s Day Hampers at the Hamper Emporium can be great place to start your search. Covering Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, the popular company can help you get a sense of the options available and plan your day right.

Tastes and Allergies:

While it may be tempting to grab a bundle of muffins and call it a day, it’s important to have a think about what you’re picking up and who you’re choosing it for. Is your Dad a shiraz fan? Do they enjoy a bit of cheese with their wine? Or maybe they’d like a craft beer or two? Or, if you’re not sure, there’s nothing quite like a selection of beers or treats to give them a bit of choice.

What else should I pick up ?

If you’re looking for something a little extra, remember that you are under no obligation to ‘go big’ or add unnecessary extras. A personalised mug, joke present, or scarf or hat from their favourite sports team is a persistent memory they can enjoy.

However, taking the time to browse for a few thoughtful extras can be the cherry on top of the sundae. This can be as simple as a decent bottle opener, selection of tools or cutlery, or a fancy penknife to help provide something treasured to last long beyond when the meal is finished.
