How to Gear Up Your Store for Dad’s Day

Mother’s Day has come and gone, and now it’s time to turn our attention to all the father figures in our lives! Yes, Father’s Day is coming up on the 18th of June – the day we celebrate the wonderful pappas who taught us how to ride a bike, expertly grilled those mouth-watering braaibroodjies on Friday nights, and – let’s be honest – probably have given us some questionable advice through the years.

However, when it comes to hunting down the ideal Father’s Day gift, it often feels like we’re navigating uncharted territory. While Mother’s Day always seems to offer an abundance of thoughtful options, this one often leaves us scratching our heads, especially since most dads are about as enthusiastic about receiving gifts as they are about accompanying their teenage daughters to a shopping spree at Canal Walk.

But no need to worry, with our curated selection of gift suggestions for every type of dad, your store will certainly become the go-to destination for anyone eager to impress their dad this Father’s Day!


“Ons gaan NÓÚ braai” – grilling gadgets for the braai master

Let’s start with the quintessential dad – the one who never misses an opportunity to fire up that grill, come rain or shine. For the braai dad, your store should absolutely be stocked with all things braai related. From premium braai utensils that you can order online to some good ole Ina Paarman spices that you can find at your local Pick n Pay, give your customers dads the ultimate goods that will take their braai game to new heights!


Score brownie points by impressing the sporty dad

For the dads whose idea of a perfect Saturday involves a fierce rugby match between the Springboks and the All Blacks, or a few intense rounds of golf, consider importing some trendy sports apparel or perhaps a few sleek new golf clubs. And don’t forget to throw in some great sports-themed accessories, like slogan t-shirts and humorous sports memorabilia to elicit a few chuckles!


Gear up for the dad who loves the outdoors

If some of your customers’ dads prefer hiking boots to dress shoes and would rather explore the great outdoors than sit on the couch, it’s time to equip them for their next adventure. Offer a range of high-quality hiking gear, from durable backpacks to waterproof jackets, sturdy hiking boots to compact camping essentials.


Equip the handyman dad

For the dads who believe that they can fix anything and everything, equip them with the tools they need to conquer any DIY project! Stock up on versatile toolboxes and innovative gadgets that will make their inner handyman jump with joy. After all, what dad doesn’t love having the latest gadget to show off to his DIY pals? And nothing says “I appreciate you, dad” more than giving him the means to tackle that never-ending to-do list with finesse.
