With Father’s Day just 1,5 week away time is quickly running out to find the perfect present for the special man in your life. Every year I try to put together a few different gifts for my hip hubby, making sure he receives something fun, luxurious, practical and tasty (after all, we all know the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach). This year Aussie favourite Tooheys is making your Father’s Day gift shopping easier than ever with the release of the ultimate gift for guys of all ages:

The full-colour, hardcover Tooheys Cooking Handbook is written with real Aussie blokes in mind. It’s filled to the brim with tasty recipes that are sure to impress yet surprisingly simple to make. From pork to potatoes and from pasta to pies, from salmon to salad and from sausages to stir-fries, it contains delicious recipes to suit the whole family and thanks to the easy-to-follow, hands-on instructions even the biggest amateur-cook can give them a go.

Tooheys Cooking Handbook

I am blessed with a hubby that knows his way around the kitchen better than I do and he loves discovering new recipes so I know he will thoroughly enjoy cooking his way through this great read (whilst enjoying a beer or two). My guess is that he will first try his hand at the Finger Lickin’ Wings, something our little guinea pigs will be more than happy to taste test for him. Of course you can count on Tooheys to include a few beer-based recipes too, would you like to serve your mates some homemade Cheesy Beer Damper, Sticky Barbecued Ribs or Dark Ale Pate at your next BBQ?

So ladies, if you are looking for a cheeky way to get your man into the kitchen and in charge of dinner look no further than the new Tooheys Cooking Handbook.

Tooheys Cooking Handbook (RRP $39.99, 234 pages) is available for purchase at leading bookstores across Australia or online in the Tooheys Online Store.

Lucky Camera Straps

Every birthday, wedding anniversary and Father’s Day I make it my personal challenge to find my husband the perfect gift. Sometimes it is very easy, other times not so much. One of the things I always struggle with is to keep the present a secret until the big day, often I am so excited that I can’t contain myself and blurt out the surprise.

Lucky Camera Straps

When I first discovered Lucky Camera Straps I immediately knew that my photography loving husband would be over the moon with it. Originally I had planned to keep it for Father’s Day but as our European holiday started a few weeks before that I used that as an excuse to present him with his very own personalised leather camera strap a little earlier (Okay, I am just not a patient person!).

Lucky Strap

He absolutely loved his new strap and has used it every single day. The quality is amazing, the leather is strong and supportive yet butter soft, the extra length allows for movement and the classic embossing looks stunning. Lucky Camera Straps are handmade here in Australia, there are lots of great colours and combinations to choose from and orders are sent out quickly. Prices start at $69.95, there is an additional charge for embossing.

Tap KingThe only problem with giving presents early is that on the day you find yourself empty handed. After driving all of us around Europe for 5 weeks (and having to go back to work with a huge jetlag the day after arriving home) I think hubby still deserves a little something this Father’s Day. On the holiday he seemed to enjoy a beer or two while sitting outside in the sun after dinner so I think he will appreciate this gift from Tap King.

Tap King DispenserTap King is a convenient in-home beer system that allows hubby, dad or grand-dad to enjoy their favourite ice-cold beer straight from the tap. The Tap King dispenser is designed to hold a decent 3.2 liter PET bottle and fits comfortably in an average sized fridge. The Tap King range holds a good range of Australia’s favourite beers like James Boag’s Premium Lager, Hahn Super Dry, James Squire The Chancer Golden Ale and more.

Tap King dispensers ($32.99) and refills (RRP $18.99 – $27.99) are available at all good bottle shops Australia wide. In celebration of Father’s Day there are many great offers around making Tap King a quick, easy and very affordable last-minute Father’s Day gift idea. I noticed Coles is currently running a fabulous Tap King deal saving you a huge 50% on a Tap King dispenser and 3.2L James Squire refill, that’s just $30 for the set!
