If you’re searching for a way to spice up Father’s Day with the ultimate gift, then get to Fire & Feast Meat Festival presented by Crown National at Joburg’s Ticketpro Dome from 8 to 10 June. At Fire & Feast Meat Festival, we recognise that dads come in all shapes and sizes with a range of interests to match – which is why we’ve tried to find a dynamic list of gift suggestions for this Father’s Day. And none of them is socks.
Here are our top 10 gift items:
1. Engrave a bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey
Buy a bottle of Tennessee’s finest from the Jack Daniel’s family for dad this Father’s Day. Select from the double mellowed Gentleman Jack, the smooth sippin’ Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey or even the uniquely crafted Single Barrel Select. Why not take it a step further and have a personalised message, or dad’s name, engraved onto the bottle. The Jack Daniel’s team will be onsite at Fire & Feast to put this personal touch on your purchase.
2. Get inked
For a gift with a bit of edge, consider getting dad a tattoo for Father’s Day. Renowned local tattoo artists from Awhe Tattoo & Lifestyle Studio will be featuring at the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave at Fire & Feast, ready to customise a design or replicate any creation on skin. If tattoos aren’t his thing, then an I ‘heart’ dad tattoo on the upper arm is always a classic.
3. Time for a groom
Treat dad to some traditional styling at Barnet Fair Barber Shop – old-school charm with a modern twist. They offer traditional hot towel shaves, beard shaves, head shaves, beard maintenance and haircuts…all right inside the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave at Fire & Feast. Keep dad in style beyond Father’s Day by investing in some premium-crafted beard care and grooming products from The Bearded Man.
4. Wear it right
‘A bru maak a plan’ for Father’s Day with May Bru’s awesome range of trendy clothing and accessories, all for sale at the Fire & Feast Jack Daniel’s Man Cave. Get dad styling in their uniquely-designed hoodies, T-shirts, vests or caps. All ‘locally bru’d’.
5. Keeping it retro
For a truly timeless gift, there’s nothing quite as original as a handcrafted wall clock from the artists at Vinyl Record. Each vintage record is recrafted into a stylishly retro wall clock depicting anything from a favourite superhero to a more whimsical forest scene. These reconfigured retro pieces – located in the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave – will keep dad on time and in style.
6. Chad-O-Chef braai
What better place to find the ultimate braai than Fire & Feast Meat Festival? Leading gas braai manufacturers, Chad-O-Chef, will be featuring their in-demand range which includes drop-in gas braais, built-in gas braais and retro-fit gas braais. Visitors will even get to see the exceptional Chad-O-Chef Hybrid braai in action at Braaitology, as well as in the four meat theatres, brought to you by Chad-O-Chef. This can braai using gas, wood, charcoal or even smoker chips. What’s not to love?
7. Braai accessories
It’s time to accessorise dad’s braai and Fire & Feast has everything he’ll need …braai thermometers, ignitors, braai covers, aprons, and so much more. He’ll be kitted out for that Father’s Day braai.
8. Quality-crafted accessories
If leather and canvas resonate with your dad, then stop by Knap Sak within the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave and you’ll be sure to find a quality gift. The company specialises in handmade items such as satchels, belts, suspenders…even leather bowties and ties.
9. MyBraai Meat & Wine Pairing Theatre tickets
South Africa’s premium online butchery, MyBraai, has joined forces with the one of the country’s leading wine producers, Leopard’s Leap, to offer a juicy inclusion on the Fire & Feast menu – the MyBraai Meat & Wine Pairing Theatre. Buy dad a ticket to the demonstration where he’ll get to sample five incredible meat dishes accompanied by Leopard’s Leap range of wines. There’ll also be free giveaways at the event.
