10 Fabulous Gift Ideas for Dad June 16 2015

Father's Day Around The World

Father's Day is a celebration honoring the influence of fathers in society. 

In lots of countries Father's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June including the USA, Canada, the UK, France, India, China, Japan, the Philippines and South Africa. However, it is also widely celebrated on other days, for example on February 23rd in Russia, March 19th in Italy, Portugal, Spain and Germany, the first Sunday in June  for Switzerland, the second Sunday in June for Austria and Belgium, first Sunday of September in Australia and New Zealand and the second Saturday of November in many Scandinavian countries.

Whatever day you celebrate as Father's Day cherish it! Sadly my Father died this year and if I had the opportunity again I would celebrate Father's day a number of times each year.

So whether you're celebrating Father's Day or just telling your Dad that you love them, we've pulled together some of our favourite gifts online at Bits of Australia to help you with your gifts for dad shopping.

Share the love with leather

For Dads with that timeless class we have three leather pieces - each of them are just like him, truly one of a kind. The slim and classy the leather card wallet is designed to avoid a bulky pocket while holding all your essential cards. These premium quality accessories from Chocolate Brownie have been created using a combination of traditional handcrafting techniques and modern technology to create contemporary leather goods. The wallets are available in chocolate brown and dark brown.

Pair one of the stylish card wallets with a Chocolate Brownie leather keyring for the ideal Father's Day present. Made from high quality vegetable-tanned leather from South America, this piece is created using the same time-honoured tanning technique which means the leather retains the natural flaws and markings, and each resulting piece is unique.

All Chocolate Brownie pieces are Australian made and designed to become part of who you are, part of your story. The leather will soften with your touch, and mould to your body and your life.
