Haven't bought dad a Father's Day present yet? Well, you might be able to save your pennies! According to a new MyState Bank research study, nine out of ten Aussie Dad's would hands-down pick a 'family experience' over any gift this Father's Day.
The study also found that 48% of Aussie Dad's have received a Father's Day gift they considered to be a waste of money, while half have received a gift they'd never even used.
Heather McGovern, MyState Bank's General Manager Digital and Marketing, said, "For those who would like to buy a gift for their Dad's this year, consider it carefully to avoid splashing out on something that is likely to end up being returned or shoved at the back of the wardrobe."
"Our research shows that the most impactful gifts are priceless and free," McGovern said.
