Being in lockdown can make celebrating hard but if you need last minute ideas for Father’s Day on Sunday, September 5 there is still time.
Local businesses are ready with pick up and delivery options to make the Dad or father figure in your life feel special.
If you are unsure what to buy, a gift box with a selection of goodies is sure to tick all the boxes.
Owner of Mannalily Soy Candles and Melts in Penrith, Belinda Mannix has three Father’s Day gift box options for $55 or less.
“We have beer from Rusty Penny Brewery, beer glasses, bottle openers, and beard combs to go with our beard oil, body butter and room and car spray,” Ms Mannix said.
“Our scents smell like amazing colognes and it is nice for dads to try something different, plus we can offer free local delivery on Saturday.”
The Gifting Emporium in South Penrith also has last minute hampers available with cocktails, condiments and local products like coffee from Love Beans and chocolate from Zokoko.
If you are sick of the Dad jokes then make sure the man of the hour has his mouth full with a delicious meal.
Both Percy Plunkett in Penrith and Al Aseel in Jamisontown are serving up options from September 3 to 5.
The Father’s Day BBQ box from Percy’s will let you take over the grill from Dad and feed four people a selection of sausages, steak and burger patties plus more for $79.
This can be picked up or delivered for free within 15 kilometres of the café.
For $119.90 you can serve a feast of all your Lebanese favourites for the king of your family with authentic cuisine picked up from from Al Aseel.
The King’s Feast can also be delivered to you through Deliveroo.
We can’t forget the Dads with a sweet tooth and Decaddens has you covered.
The new dessert business in Caddens has Father’s Day boxes that can be picked up or delivered locally which will leave your mouth watering.
“It has six cupcakes then assorted chocolates and lollies, homemade rocky road, a custom acrylic sign and a mini bottle of alcohol for $70,” owner Amy Breen told the Weekender.
“They are the perfect way to show a little love in person or if you are apart.”
