🤷‍♂️ Father's Day Present Ideas!

Outshine your siblings and make Dad proud this Father’s Day.

Skip that last minute dash to the shops for a pair of socks and jocks – Dad deserves something a bit more special this Father’s Day.

We’ve done the hard work for you and picked the very best gifts to suit every kind of Dad. Fancy Dads, foodie Dads, gym Dads and ones that deserve a bit of TLC – which, to be honest, is all of them.

Shoutout to all the Dads out there. We love you and your terrible jokes and equally terrible fashion sense.


For the Creative Dad

Save some cash monies and make something from the heart this Father’s Day. We’ll step it up from the days of macaroni art and finger painting. Why not create a scrapbook of memories? Or print out photographs and college them together for some funky wall art? Bonus points: dig around for some old photos for that extra bout of nostalgia.


He’s bound to appreciate some homemade grub – the world wide web has some great ideas. A savoury kind of guy? Homemade taco seasoning, beefy jerky or BBQ sauce might just be the way to go to earn yourself some brownie points.

Is your Dad a ‘doing stuff’ kind of guy and material gifts just won’t cut it? Classes and experiences could be up his alley. Art classes, cooking classes, wine tasting or hiking experiences for the two of you would make for some seriously good bonding time.


For the Sporty Dad

Aces’ Sporting Club
Aces is a golfing range catering for all levels of abilities in Melbourne’s South-East. It features a double level licenced and covered driving range for Dad to chill out and practice his golfing skills in.

With Liven, you’ll receive a complimentary bucket of range balls when you purchase another of equal or greater value.


Dad always whining about wanting to join the gym? A membership to Kaya Health Clubs could just be what he’s looking for. Kaya specialises in yoga, Pilates reformer, barre and boxing – and promises to provide a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Plus, with locations in the CBD and Prahran, it makes exercising easy and convenient! Ha, no more excuses Dad.

If you’re a first time Liven user, you can even score 3 free classes on the house!

For the Foodie Dad

Those in the know, know that Au79 is a plant-filled and pink café, bakery and patisserie. But those really in the know are aware of their in-house roastery. Why not treat Dad to some premium coffee this year? They’ve got a single origin espresso, midas blend and a single origin filter pack to choose from. He won’t have to leave the comfort of home for a good cup of coffee.

Here at Liven we’ll even make sure you’re rewarded with Liven Cash to the amount of 15% off your bill.

What’s better than ice-cream? Take home packs to scoff down in your pyjamas. Opting for a quiet night in with the fam doesn’t mean you have to stinge on quality. Melbourne’s most beloved ice-creamery is home to Australia’s best gelato by Good Food Guide.

When you pay using the Liven app, you’ll score 15% of your bill in the form of Liven Cash.

For the Cheesy Dad

Okay, so we can’t look past the classic dad memorabilia that forms the cornerstone of all Father’s Days. Daggy socks, handheld games, funny mugs, sports merch and nerdy pop culture relics are sure to bring a smile to his face.

For the Tired Dad

Peninsula Hot Springs
Relax and unwind up in the Mornington Peninsula. The Peninsula Hot Springs is the perfect gift for Dad to take some much needed time for himself. Choose from their various bathing packages – there’s the communal and social bath house, the serene spa dreaming centre and the intimate private bathing, to just name a few.

Pay with Liven and you’ll get 20% off the cost of the Bath House during off-peak periods!

V Hotel Spa
Really treat Dad this year. A little luxury never hurt no one. (sunglasses guy emoji) At V Hotel Spa, they’re all about indulgent relaxation and rejuvenation. Gift Dad a massage this year – there are different treatments to suit all different needs. Or perhaps reward yourself with one. Y’know, you’ve been sooo good selflessly researching presents for Father’s Day…

Now that the presents are sorted, you better start thinking of dinner ideas. Oh wait – we’ve also done that for you. Read here for some scrumptious places that Dad’s bound to enjoy.

We accept our new position as the Father's Day fairy. 🧚‍♀️
