How to Celebrate Dad This Father's Day

David Jones has your 2019 gift-giving sorted.

David Jones has your 2019 gift-giving sorted.

Once upon a time, you sat high on his shoulders or kicked a ball around a sports field together, these days, he’s a mentor and sounding board, the ever-willing babysitter to the grandkids or maybe a weekly companion for a pint at your local pub. No matter who fulfils the role of ‘Dad’ in your life, this September 1 is the day to #colourhisworld.

To mark Father’s Day, we spoke to three creative thinkers about their parenting journeys: artist Reko Rennie, architect Kelvin Ho, and radio personality and design enthusiast Tim Ross. With innovation at the forefront of their work, we asked them how their children bring joy to their lives, what they love most about being a dad and how their kids fill them with optimism.

And for your dad, David Jones has gift-giving sorted. This is the year to brighten his day with thoughtful gifts and show him how grateful you are for everything he’s brought to your life. 

To all the dads out there — fathers, grandfathers, uncles and friends who have become family — we wish you a very happy Father’s Day.
