Still undecided on what to get Dad for Father’s Day? Don’t worry, we have you covered with some of these amazing gift options sure to make any Dad’s day!
Most Aussies agree that the best, most thoughtful gifts needn’t be expensive and if the past year taught us anything (other than the fine art of sourdough), it’s that small acts of kindness make a massive difference. To spread some much needed thoughtfulness across the nation just in time for Father’s Day, the legends at Australian-first nano-gifting app Shouta have just released two limited-edition Shouts, the ‘Quarantini’ and ‘Quarancino’. Shouta gives people the opportunity to show thoughtfulness through digital, customisable nano-gifts, with options starting for as little as $5. You simply head to the Shouta app and choose from a range of digital nano-gifts, allocate a monetary amount to be added to the gift and customise with personalised messaging or imagery. Send your Shout to the lucky recipient (or, Shoutee as they’re known) and the Shoutee will then receive a link to a digital, prepaid Shouta Mastercard. The reloadable card can be spent on the specific Shout the gift giver has chosen, like a coffee, or they can go rogue and once added to their Apple Pay or Google Pay wallet, they can tap and pay for anything they’d like! Shouta is available on iOS and Android at app.shouta.co.
