While your dad or father figure may be one in a million, you don’t need to spend a million to spoil him on Father’s Day on June 17.  

There are many ways that you can show appreciation to your father or the father figure in your life without breaking the bank. Here are five gifting ideas you can choose from.

The Hands-on dad

If your father is one of those who is always hands-on at work, get him to put down the tools and treat him to a nice spa. With branches nationwide, NetFlorist is having a midday-spa break for dads. For more information, see www.netflorist.co.za

The Artistic dad

For a man who appreciates art and all the finer things in life, treat dad to an afternoon of music, good food and fine liquor at the Gin & Jive Father’s Day party.
