Every dad has his day. Treat your old man or treat yourself with some of the coolest gear and gadgets of 2018.

The M1 Electric Skateboard by Inboard Technology
Chairman of the board

First there were e-bikes. Now there are e-boards. Behold, the Inboard. Integrated electronics, reinforced truck mounting points and resilient TPU nose and tail bumpers at
the rails yield a remarkably light and durable platform optimised for a more responsive ride. Plus it has a top speed of over 35 km/h.

Proraso Beard Kit

What better way to encourage Dad to clean out last night’s leftovers from his beard than with a fancy beard grooming kit? This Proraso beard kit offers everything he needs to maintain a healthy, tidy beard – complete with a fresh citrus scent.

Normatec Pulse Boots
What’s the buzz?

Bounce back faster between sessions with NormaTec. Created by a bioengineer to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, the NormaTec Pulse Massage system employs three key techniques to maximise your recovery: pulsing, gradients and distal release.

Roadies: The Secret History of Australian Rock’n’Roll by Stuart Coupe
Read all about it

This is your backstage pass to the hidden side of the music industry – the tantrums, the fights, the tensions, the indulgence, the sex, the alcohol, the drugs. The roadies see it all, and now they are sharing their secrets. It’s not available until until September 25th, but it’s such a good read the old man will forgive you for being a couple weeks late. Get it soon from all good bookstores.

Bose quiet comfort
A bit of shoosh, please

QuietComfort wireless headphones II are engineered with world-class noise cancellation. And now they’re even better. With the Google Assistant built in, you can play music, receive texts and get answers without glancing at your phone.

Marvis toothpaste
Get Fresh

Marvis is a classic toothpaste created using a long, precise traditional method which guarantees a rich, smooth texture that’s especially effective at heightening the intensity of the flavour and creating a refreshing protective and whitening effect.

Smooth Criminal

Better than a one-off hot lap or speed boat ride, a Vitamix Ascent Series is the only gift that will leave Dad speechless – after all, it cleans itself and makes meals in minutes. Available in three models which all feature Variable Speed Control, Pulse, SELF-DETECT and Interlock technologies with a built-in timer, the all new Vitamix Ascent Series power and precision delivers the ultimate in versatile high-performance blending.
