Great Gift Ideas for Dad

Ashley van Raad

Whether he's a lawn lover, a DIY'er or a Dog Dad, there's something for every Dad! That's why we've compiled our best gift ideas to spoil Dad with this year. P.S. Stay tuned until the end of the blog for our special Father's Day offer! 

Hose Reel

It’s the big one, but what dad wouldn’t like a hose that gets the job done and packs itself away at the end? The Hoselink Retractable Hose Reel starts from $179 and is the ideal gift to give between siblings. Available to purchase in 20m, 25m and 30m lengths, the reel will revolutionise the way you water. Hoselink’s Retractable Hose Reels can be mounted to a wall or a post, making them perfect for any space! Fitted with a high-quality kink-resistant hose inside, a specially designed ‘stop-anywhere’ locking mechanism and an automatic rewind system that neatly coils the hose into the reel on command.

If you’ve not got a wall to mount it on, we’ve got you covered with our

Cutting Tools

If your dad likes his tools, then Hoselink’s range of cutting gadgets provides an ideal gift. Our heavy-duty Lopper is perfect for chopping woody stems, small branches and heavy foliage – a great in-between when pruners are too weak, and an axe is too strong. The Loppers feature specially designed telescopic handles with six-length settings for easy reach – no more back strain – a sharp Teflon-coated SK5 Japanese steel cutting blade, and soft rubber grip handles. Is your dad a fan of a multi-function tool? Our Stainless Steel Multipurpose Garden Knife is the perfect match for Dad. This Garden Knife will be Dad’s new best friend, allowing him to easily cut into bags of soil or mulch, measure soil depth, and cut through roots. This handy tool is finished with a non-slip handle and sheath for safe storing too.


Extendable Cleaning Brush

The relationship between a man and his car is a special one, and to help Dad take care of his ‘baby’ why not treat him to some of Hoselink’s brilliant car cleaning accessories? For washing, there’s the Extendable Cleaning Brush, a soft-bristled brush attachment for your hose designed to deliver a stream of water and gentle scrubbing power as you wash the dirt away. The handle extends from 103cm to 168cm, ideal for cleaning the car roof, and the small water flow lever at the base allows the water pressure to be fully controlled. This cleaning brush can be used on windows and other vehicles like boats and bikes, allowing Dad to keep busy!

Sprinklers & Irrigation

As spring is almost upon us, it’s a good time to invest in a solid sprinkler that will keep the garden hydrated month after month. Hoselink’s best-selling Oscillating Sprinkler promises to make Dad’s life easier - ideal for watering large sections of the garden or lawn with minimal effort. Performing well even with low water pressure, the Oscillating Sprinkler has several adjustable controls to help you select the strength of the water flow, customise the saturation level and alter the spray settings to suit narrow spaces or to fix the spray in one position. The sprinkler’s sturdy metal construction will keep it well in place, while the built-in cleaner and fine mesh filter will protect its use after use.


For the ultimate greenhouse grow-your-own set-up, treat your dad to the Hoselink Total Misting Package, the all-in-one solution to keeping veggies cool and hydrated this summer. The fully customisable kit comes with a 15m long PVC tube, eight directional misting heads that emit a fine misting spray, a Misting Timer and Tap Connector. Create a misting environment perfect for salads and other veggies or use the kit to set up a cooling effect on an entertaining area or even an animal pen. Each Misting Kit comes with hanging snap clips which can be used to attach the tube to the string. Alternatively, you can use nails for a more permanent fixture.

Stand-Up Weed Puller

Help Dad protect his back and save him from struggling with pesky weeds with a Hoselink Stand-up Weed Puller! This innovative tool is popular for a reason as it saves the user from getting down on their hands and knees and makes pulling up weeds enjoyable! Weeding becomes virtually effortless with ergonomic features such as an easy-grip handle and a built-in ejection system! Simply push the claws into the ground, lean back slightly and eject! Better yet, pair this gift with a Hoselink Planter Bag to store garden waste, transplant other plants or even grow herbs and veggies... talk about versatility!


Tap Timer with Rain Sensor

All the technology you need in one little device! Treat Dad to the ability to water with peace of mind and little effort. Hoselink’s Tap Timer with Rain Sensor is a clever little device that packs a tonne of features, from a child lock to programming and manual watering. Its best feature by far is the ability to stop watering when the rain does the work for you, saving any water wastage. Tap timers are fantastic for helping anyone to have an efficient watering routine, allowing you to go and put your feet up or go away on holiday while the timer does the rest. Hook it up to your irrigation system or sprinkler and programme three separate schedules. If Dad loves a functional, easy-to-maintain garden, then this is the gift for him! As a little bonus gift, if Dad takes a keen interest in the rainfall, a rain Rain Gauge makes the perfect gift! These are great for teaching kids but also simply great for the grown-ups like Dad who just like to know these things!


Help Dad out with the success of his garden by giving him the gift of fertilisers. Hoselink's Fertiliser Starter Bundle is the perfect way to help Dad and get him started if he's new to gardening. The bundle includes a Plant Health Seaweed Tonic, which is great for helping plants grow more vigorously and assisting with flowering and fruiting. The bundle also includes a Super Grow Garden Fertiliser containing 16 essential nutrients for plants to grow. This fertiliser also reduces the likelihood of any insects attacking and disease being spread to your green life. With regular application, Super Grow is bound to have Dad saying goodbye to insecticides forever! Lastly, the bundle includes a Fertiliser Spray Mixer, making it quick and easy to disperse fertiliser from your Hoselink-connected hose wherever you need it.

The receiver doesn’t have to use the entire amount in one transaction either, so they can spend in different increments as they wish.
