This is the first time many fathers will celebrate their day in lockdown. The COVID-19 pandemic means that those giving gifts will have to be very creative with how and what to give. Many popular Father’s Day gifts, like travel or visiting dad’s favourite restaurant are currently prohibited.

Here is a list of interesting Father’s Day gifts, perfect for lockdown:

1. A gourmet dinner hamper

Renowned chef Luke Dale Roberts is offering a luxury gourmet hamper that allow you to cook a delicious dinner for your father. Options range from Wagyu ribeye to flavourful slow-cooked ocean salmon fillet.

You can check out the hampers by visiting the website here. The meals contain up to 17 ingredients.

2. Give him a “self-care Sunday” moment

Sorbet is one of South Africa’s favourite pamper brands, and they now deliver! As hairdressers and barbershops are not open yet, fathers have been forced to groom at home.

Sorbet has a wide range of beard and hair care products that dad will love, and make self-grooming a lot easier.

3. Enter a competition for dad

If you’re not able to dine together, Knorhoek Wine Farm’s resident restaurant has the perfect solution with their “A Gift to you Dad” competition running from June 12 until June 30.
