You might think dad is embarrassing with his silly jokes that don’t really make sense, when he tries to keep up with the latest slang and gets it all wrong, or when his favourite dance move is seriously old school… But dad’s the one who lets you get away with more than mom does. He’ll watch Star Wars with you again and again, and make you laugh when you feel a bit sad. No-one gets as excited as dad when you have good news to share, and he’s always on-hand to offer good advice when you need it. In our books, that makes dad really cool… the king of cool, in fact! So show him just how awesome you think he really is and spoil him with some amazing gifts from Woolworths this Father’s Day.

Woolworths neoprene joggers (R350) and patch pocket joggers in poly/wool (R499) are so comfy as well as chic that you might have to get him more than one pair just to make sure he doesn’t live in them. Throw in a pure cotton, long sleeve josh brushed shirt (R399), and not only will he be extra huggable, but he’ll look super smart too. There’s also a selection of stylish puffer jackets, either with long sleeves (from R650) or sleeveless (from R550) which are versatile and will go with anything from the joggers to jeans.


We all know how dad loves to spend Sundays in his sleepwear, so now’s the time to treat him to some new Woolworths flannel pyjama pants (from R250). Add to that a knit Sherpa gown (from R550), and with its faux sheepskin collar dad will really feel like a boss!

Who else lets you eat dessert for breakfast? So why not return the favour and indulge dad’s (or grandad’s) sweet tooth with Woolworths specially wrapped 300g milk chocolate slabs (R69.95). If that doesn’t catch his fancy, try some delicious, sugar-encrusted dark chocolates filled with whiskey, brandy and orange liqueur, presented beautifully in a grey felt ‘Life’s a box of liqueur chocolates’ package (R89.95).

For the dad who has green thumbs, and also loves his coffee, give him the best of both with a Woolworths coffee plant in enamel mug, complete with punny slogans that will really tickle his sense of humour (R99.99 each). Or if that’s not his cup of tea, dad will think of you every morning when he uses his special Father’s Day eco mug (R99.95) that he can even take to work, thanks to its rubber lid.

For the design-conscious dad copper is the colour du jour, so he’ll really feel spoilt when he unwraps a really hip, hip flask (dad joke) in copper, of course (R150), or a chic copper mug (R150).

If none of these simply fantastic gifts hit the spot, there’s always Woolworths wide selection of homeware, from braai kits, to office gadgets; plenty of men’s accessories- think belts and toiletry bags, or Woolworths wonderful wine selection. And if all else fails, just grab a gift card and let dad loose in the biltong section!
