With Father's Day quickly bearing down on us, time is running out to find Dad the perfect gift to show him how much he means to us. 

But getting something Dad will love is often easier said than done. If you're fretting about what to get your dad this year, worry no further - Newshub is here to help.

We've found a range of winning gifts from Bunnings Warehouse that are sure to hit the mark, whatever your budget and whatever type of dad you are buying for.

With dozens of stores right across New Zealand, Bunnings is the country's leading retailer of home improvement and lifestyle products. Bunnings will also be holding a Father's Day family event in stores on August 31 and a national kids DIY workshop on September 2 for children to make their own gifts for Dad. 

Whether your dad is at home behind the barbie or prefers to get stuck into some serious DIYing, we've got you covered.

Here's just a selection of Bunnings goodies your dad is sure to love, with hundreds more options available online.

  • For dads who love to grill up a storm behind the barbie then look no further than the Jumbuck Charcoal Grill. Being small and portable, this grill is not only perfect to use on a deck or in a small backyard but Dad can also take it to the beach as soon as the weather warms up and show off his barbequing chops in public - literally. 
  • If your dad is more at home in the garden than near a grill then this Saxon shears and secateur set is sure to be a hit. Whether he needs to trim the hedge or keep on top of his vege pruning, this combo will have him covered and let him stretch his green fingers in style.
  • For the security-conscious dad, this Orion smart indoor security camera is just the ticket to give him peace of mind that everything is ok on the home front even when he's away. Quick and easy to set up with no professional wiring required and featuring 1080p HD video with two-way talk and infrared vision and motion detection, this security camera will let Dad check in and make sure nothing fishy is going on at home while he's away on his fishing trip.
  • If you're shopping for a dad who's just getting started on his DIY journey, then this Ryobi home essentials kit will give him just the foundation he needs to hit the ground running. Featuring an 18V drill driver and drill bit set, measuring tape, hammer, pliers, screwdriver set and more, he'll have everything he needs to finally dig into that DIY project he's been talking about doing for so long. And it all comes in a snazzy storage bag to ensure his tools all stay together while he's off duty.
  • All that DIYing can be hard work. That's why Dad is sure to need this Titan 16-can cooler bag. Give him this gift and not only will you be able to relax knowing Dad won't get dehydrated from all that hard work he's doing, but he might even offer you a beer from his stash to say thanks. 
  • For the craftsman dad who revels in the details, this Ryobi USB lithium rotary toolkit will be sure to impress. Suitable for sanding, cutting, shaping, engraving, polishing and drilling, this is a must-have in every serious DIYer's toolbox.
  • Do you have a dad who's never satisfied with what you give him? Well, fret not. Slip him a $50 Bunnings gift voucher and he can decide what to buy himself - there's no way he can complain with that!
