Five Father’s Day gift ideas for 2018

September is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to start thinking about what to get Dad for Father’s Day.

This year Brisbane MarketPlace is giving you the chance to win Dad the ultimate Father’s Day gift, two tickets to the 2018 NRL grand final. Unfortunately there can only be one winner so it’s a good idea to have a backup gift. Avoid being a last-minute Mandy and head to the Sunday Discovery Market, Rocklea to sort through a range of exciting Father’s Day presents.

Here are five great gifts you’ll find each weekend at the Sunday Discovery Market.

Spring gardening kit

If your Dad has a green thumb, pick up some herbs or fruit and veggies for the garden. Grab some gardening tools whilst you’re at it and put together a Spring gardening kit. If you are unsure about what plants to buy, our knowledgeable Stallholders and resident plant whispers are always happy to share their wisdom and guide you in the right direction – Warren at My Plants is a great place to start! For more inspiration, check out our guide to what you should be planting in preparation for Spring.


Host a barbecue

If Dad loves nothing more than a good old fashioned cook-out , pick up some quality cuts of meat and throw a party for the family. From beef brisket and steaks to gourmet sausages and legs of lamb, our butcher and fishmonger Stallholders have everything you need to make your Father’s Day dreams come true. Start planning your menu with a range of recipe ideas featuring our favourite cuts of meat.


Toolbox  makeover

We all know a dad who considers himself the household handyman. If your Dad spends the weekend building shelves, fixing doors or repainting fences, then consider giving his toolbox a makeover. From hammers to sanding equipment and paint brushes, you’ll find everything you need at the Sunday Discovery Market.


Commissioned Artwork

If you think your Dad would love a new piece of art to decorate the home or office but you’re not much of a Picasso yourself, why not get a piece of art commissioned? Find a professional artist and get something unique made for Father’s Day. Watch the artwork come to life before your eyes!



Whether your Dad collects model cars, records, comic books or just about anything else you can think of, head to the Sunday Discovery Market to dig through hidden treasure and find the perfect new addition to his collection. If the hunt is half the fun, bring Dad along and make a day of searching for collectables together. This way you’re not only getting him a gift but spending quality time together which is probably worth a lot more to your old man anyway.
