To celebrate Father’s Day, Ardbeg is offering Australians the opportunity to have a bottle of Ardbeg delivered to the special man in their life by Shortie himself.

Write is right
Has your dad got a thing for writing (the best one’s do, just saying)?

From classic fountain pens, to modern designs, erasable ink pens and more, Pilot has your dad covered. Who knows, he may even dedicate his next masterpiece to you.
This mower is golden

Don’t forget your keys!

The newly redesigned KeySmart Pro can now hold up to 14 keys, includes a bottle opener, an LED flashlight and has a rechargeable battery.
Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3
These Ultimate Ears Megabooms keep on getting better and better. If your dad loves his tunes and would appreciate a hard wearing bluetooth speaker that can take a bit of a battering now and then, then he needs one of these in his life.
MEGABOOM 3 has been designed to get wet and keep on booming. Featuring a ridiculous IP67 water and dustproof rating, it can be totally submerged in water for up to 30-minutes. Plus, it floats, so if swimming or fishing is on dad’s agenda, this is the speaker for him.
With features like the magic button for complete playlist control and a 20-hour battery life, dad will be rocking out long into the night.
Dad loves his garden but doesn’t have the time to maintain in? Make his life easier with Eve Aqua. This clever smart device converts an outdoor tap into an intelligent water outlet. So your dad can keep his garden green with little to zero effort. He can activate his sprinkler via his iPhone, Siri, or the onboard button, and allow it to shut off automatically.
The handy bit of kit also allows your dad to see how much water he’s really using to keep that grass looking lush.
You might just need to help him set it up!
