Whether we realise it or not, the qualities of a father are synonymous with that of a best friend; always down for a chat, up for a laugh, comforting, caring, and have our back no matter what. We may recognise our father as our first playmate, first idol, and first teacher, but do we realise that they were our first bestie, too?

No matter our age, dads are the ones we can count on for some silliness and fun when we need it the most – there’s a big kid eagerly hiding under the adult exterior of them all! It’s time to return some of the love that our first bestie has always shown to us this Father’s Day with the perfect Woolies gift.



Chocolate aficionados will be chuckling with glee when he opens these bad boys: the Chuckles Malted Puffs and Shortcake Milk Chocolate Slabs! Or, for something a little more opulent, try the 16-piece Decadence Selection Box. All our chocolates are made with sustainably sourced cocoa, and with your support we can increase the positive impact on cocoa farmers and their families while helping to protect nature.

For the dad that likes his sweetness with an edge of spice don’t fret; our sweet, smoky, and spicy Chipotle Sauce 250ml is like a maracas ballad on your palate, making it the perfect accompaniment to any meal. 



Let’s be honest, you can never go wrong when you’re starting the day with coffee in bed, especially when it’s served in a new ‘Best Dad Ever’ or ‘Happy Father’s Day 22Stoneware Mug, priced at only R69.95. What coffee do you think dad will like best: freshly ground Italian Blend Coffee Beans 1kg, (or if you don’t have a grinder, the Italian Blend Ground Coffee 250g tastes just as good!) or a hot cafetière of Vanilla Flavoured Ground Coffee, Hazelnut Flavoured Ground Coffee or Dark Chocolate Flavoured Ground Coffee?



The only thing better than coffee? Wine! Especially when you’re gifting the Woolies new and exclusive Thelma Abbey Red. A unique red blend with notes of dark plum, white pepper and toasted spice, this delectable bottle pairs perfectly with roasts and grilled meats, meaning it’s a wonderful way to warm the soul at any winter braai. Also new to our shelves is the non-alcoholic version of one of South Africa’s leading beer brands: the Castle Free beer 6-pack. Tasting exactly like the real thing, help dad enjoy a beer with the boys and skip the headache the next day!



Turn your human Dad into a plant Dad with the gift of an adorable Ficus Ginseng. These hardy plants are easy to care for, so he’ll have ample opportunity to hone his horticultural skills without this little guy being in any danger!



Dad spends so much time looking after all of us, when does he take a moment for himself? Get his ‘Selfcare Sundays’ started with premium male beauty and personal care gifts. Vegan friendly, endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty and with active ingredients from nature, both our Beard Oil and Post-Shave Balm are the perfect addition to any daily shave and are sure to leave dad feeling ready to seize the day, stubble-free. Finish up with a dab of Tom Ford Oud Wood Eau de Parfum and a quick nail check with the WBeauty Mens Nail Grooming Kit he’ll feel like royalty!



For the man who has everything (or at least tells you he does) take him back to fond memories of his own childhood with an OXO or Domino Game Set. These classic games are sure to come with a nostalgic dose of ‘back in my day…’, but we’ll let him ramble on, just for Father’s Day!



‘Day-to-night’ fashion takes on a slightly different meaning when fatherhood comes around, but Dad can keep cosy 24/7 with our daytime knitwear and novelty nightwear clothing options. Made from responsibly sourced cotton, our Chunky Cable Crew goes splendidly with jeans and chinos, and he can complete the look for under R100 with the addition of a cool-looking, cosy-keeping Ribbed Beanie. And, when the sun sets and it’s time for bed, the protective papa bear can keep his cubs in check easily with the Daddy Bear, Little Bear, and Baby Bear PJ Sets- these cute and comfy sets will have the whole family looking good enough for a visit from Goldilocks herself!
