FATHER’S DAY | WE CAUGHT UP WITH FOUR DADS…

To celebrate Father’s Day this year, we caught up with 4 fabulous dads to discuss what being a Father means to them. Here’s what they had to say …

1. What is your ideal way to spend Father’s Day?

I like to celebrate me and all the great things about me. That will take 5 seconds and from then it becomes a great day for the family. We normally make the effort to go out for lunch or I will fire up the 4 burner and cook a BBQ. Home-made cards are a highlight and vouchers to Bunnings are all the gifts I need. Outside of that, the WhatsApp group chat is made up old mates reflecting on “how good are we!”.

2. What is the best part of being a Dad?

There will never be a day when I can’t get enough of the kids. Kicking the football, building blocks, drawing pictures, they are all the simple things. Now the boys are slightly older we can engage in meaningful conversations about how the world works. Every night I give them kiss and tell them, “I love you more than anything in the wide world and you are the best part of my day every day.”

3. How do you choose to unwind?

Unwinding can be anything from quiet time with Lisa on the couch to a long walk around the streets. I’m not particularly great at just sitting around, I don’t like wasting time. Life goes too quickly to be caught out asking “what happened?”

4. What is your favourite set from our latest Collection?

Kate is my favourite Waterhouse but please don’t tell Tom. Oh sorry, you mean from the collection, sure. You’ll see in the pic we are team dressing in the Daydreamer Boxer set. Love that range, and Kate.

1. What is your ideal way to spend Father’s Day?

Making breakfast with my two boys and my beautiful wife, followed by a walk with our dog, Lola. Yum Cha for lunch at one of our local haunts in Chinatown in the city. An afternoon activity such as an escape room, mini golf or go karting. Finally, couch time at home cuddling my family while watching a movie with popcorn.

2. What is the best part of being a Dad?

Watching my kids enjoy any time they have before and after school, making the most of every minute, without a care in the world. I love answering their inquisitive questions and showing them how to build things and solve problems. Watching them grow and blossom is the most rewarding experience.

3. How do you choose to unwind?

I love to unwind from a hectic day at work by walking the dog with one of my boys, having a good 1:1 chat about what is important to them. Usually this will end up with us in the garage or in their bedroom working on one of their projects which is a great mental break from work.

4. What is your favourite set from our latest Collection?

Definitely the Blue Moon Long Pants and Tee, which looks elegant and stylish yet maintains that signature comfort which I have come to expect from Wanderluxe. I love wearing my Blue Moon top with a pair of loose trousers or jeans, giving the ultimate balance between luxury style and relaxed comfort.

1. What is your ideal way to spend Father’s Day?

Father’s Day to me is a family day. Best spent with my kids across all generations of family. It’s a chance to get together and celebrate our fathers and also spend quality time with my kids. 

2. What is the best part of being a Dad?

The best part of being a Dad is having two amazing kids keeping me company and forever entertained.  There is always something on and something to do.  I absolutely love playing with my kids and reliving my youth through and with them. It’s so rewarding teaching them and watching them grow and learn.

3. How do you choose to unwind?

I love getting away to a beach location somewhere warm when I have an opportunity. In the short term, I love a good wine and good food. We are spoiled with so many good restaurants in Melbourne and love getting out and about. 

4. What is your favourite set from our latest Collection?

The Daydreamer Pyjama Set is my favourite. Absolute classic and classy. Love it.

1. What is your ideal way to spend Father’s Day?

To spend quality time with my children and wife at home which is the best Father’s Day present.

2. What is the best part of being a Dad?

Watching your children grow and develop over the years. Now that both my daughter and son are young adults, it is even more rewarding to see how they are shaping their lives.

3. How do you choose to unwind?

My weekend luxury is going for a long walk in the Bayside area where I live, catching up on reading from the past week and planning the next escape for my wife and I.

4. What is your favourite set from our latest Collection?

The Daydreamer Boxer Shorts and White T-shirt for its summery feel and as the name states ‘Daydreamer’ look and feel.
