Gift Guide for the Foodie Dad

Heads up!  Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday 3 September!  It’s a great excuse (if you need one) to spoil the dad in your life. 

We’ve created a gift guide for the Foodie Dad in your life to make the hunt for the perfect present easier.

Nespresso Machine

If he’s always drinking coffee…

The Nespresso store is a coffee drinkers ultimate DREAM. The staff there are coffee wizards, ready to guide you through a treasure trove of premium coffee machines and accessories. Their latest coffee machine, Vertuo Creatista, is our favourite because it lets you create barista-quality coffee drinks right at home.


Now, if your dad's coffee mantra is "French Press all the way," Stevens is your caffeinated paradise! Go grab him a Bodum Brazil French Press and let him unleash the coffee-making sorcerer within.

If he’s always cooking up a storm…

Whether he's a grill master or a baking extraordinaire, a trip to Farmers will ensure the ultimate gift for a foodie dad. Pick him up a Baccarat Artisan Stahl Knife Block set, Butcher Square End Grain Board, or a Cinemon Onyx Double Roaster.


Say arrivederci to boring store-bought pasta! Get ready to whisk him away to his very own Little Italy with Brava Pasta Making Set from Stevens. Who needs a restaurant when you have a pasta whizz right at home?

Chef dad
Biang Biang

If he’s a fan of Asian cuisine…

If taking him away to Delhi or Shanghai is a no-go, fear not, because we've got the perfect foodie adventure right here! Prepare your taste buds for a thrilling journey to The Terrace Sylvia Park – a food lover's paradise that'll transport him straight to the heart of Asia!


Picture this: at Biang Biang, he'll twirl and slurp delicate hand-pulled noodles, drenched in an explosion of rich and spicy sauciness. Next stop, Daruma Sushi, where he can hop on the sushi train and choo-choo (chew-chew?) his way through a delightful sushi extravaganza! And just when he thought it couldn't get any better, Hello Mister will steal his heart (and his taste buds) with a bowl of pho that's so masterfully made, he'll feel like he's in the streets of Hanoi!

If he loves a dine-in experience

Auckland’s best kept secret, Sylvia Lane, is a foodie’s paradise. From Malaysian delights to Mediterranean gems, cosy pubs, and scrumptious desserts, Sylvia Lane has it all, and we're here to guide you on an unforgettable culinary journey. 

Kickstart your taste adventure at Casablanca, where you'll savour the mouth-watering lahmajun – a delightful Istanbul street food pizza. Next up, make your way to Ippudo, that serves exceptional Ramen, a soul-warming goodness straight from Japan. 

To round off your foodventure, head to Garrison Public House for the ultimate chips and aioli combo, perfectly paired with a refreshing bevaregino!


As Father's Day approaches, we hope our Foodie Dad gift guide has sparked some inspiration.
