If your father has everything he needs, selecting a gift that he wants won’t be easy. Bespoke tailoring and Berluti shoes are second nature to your dad. He already owns a Rolex and his Honma golf clubs are still spectacularly shiny. Should you panic? Well, a little bit — but not because your choices are limited. We’ve put together a list of gifts your dad may really want, even if he doesn’t quite know it yet. The only problem? These gifts are so great, you will probably have trouble parting with them!
GIFT YOUR DAD A BETTER MORNING
If your father is a coffee connoisseur, look no further. Invest in Nespresso’s top-of-the-line Lattissima Pro coffee machine, for incomparable Cappuccinos or Lattes at the touch of a button. With its intuitive touchscreen (that ensures ease of use) and its sleek aluminium finish, this pod-style appliance is a treat for the senses. No wonder delighted users worldwide are suggesting this machine is the secret to becoming a morning person!
GIFT YOUR DAD JOYOUS JEANS
Can you build a better mousetrap? The geniuses at Zegna certainly have, because they’ve taken everyday jeans to an all new level! At Ermenegildo Zegna, Japanese denim meets Italian tailoring to create the finest jeans money can buy — they bring the best features of trouser construction to jeans wear, while also offering up superior colour fastness and luxury detailing. Expect a combination of precious ruthenium hardware, high-quality leather trims and lining in fine shirt fabrics, resulting in a denim collection that is masculine, modern and — above all — lusciously luxurious.
GIFT YOUR DAD ‘EARS’ OF HAPPINESS
Tech savvy dads are sure to appreciate an updated Bluetooth device, especially something that is as smart as a Sennheiser Presence mobile earpiece. Described as the “new mobile gold standard,” this is exactly what the dad who demands consistently clear communication deserves. With its noise filtering technology and over 30-foot range, any of the Bluetooth devices from the Presence range would be perfect for on-the-go dads everywhere. (He already has the best Bluetooth device? Consider noise-cancelling Bose headphones instead.)
GIFT YOUR DAD A VISIBLE TREAT
They say good binoculars are like a fine watch or bespoke suit — one of those things every man should own in his lifetime. If your dad is a nature lover or a fan of spectator sports, this is a gift that is sure to go down well. From Nikon and Vanguard to a brand like Bushnell, there are a fair few binoculars out there that are worth buying. Looking for the best of the best? Reviews suggest the Celestron Nature DX leads the pack this year; for being exceptionally durable, fog proof and waterproof, besides offering 12x magnification and better visibility in low-light situations.
GIFT YOUR DAD A PLEASURABLE PAUSE
There’s nothing finer than a good single malt to ensure your dad stops to savour the moment. You can’t go wrong with scotch as a gift, but if you’d like to up the ante, why not add a set of Baccarat tumblers or Waterford single malt glasses to the package? For a true connoisseur, we’d recommend a Wintersmiths ice baller or chest too, so your dad can make perfectly clear ice at home. Wondering why we’re suggesting a device that makes clear ice? Well, because clear ice is considered the most important ingredient in any cocktail, as most experts concur. It looks better, tastes better and melts slower than regular ice, so it dilutes your perfect drink less — extending the pleasure of your pause.
GIFT YOUR DAD A PICTURE PERFECT MOMENT
Splash out on a massive Samsung curved 4K ultra HD smart LED TV or opt for the LG 4K ultra HD LED TV with its 98 inch screen. This is as close as you can get to offering your father club seats at every UEFA Euro Cup game this season. Besides, you can join dad at game-time and cheer together too!
GIFT YOUR DAD A ‘TOY’ HE ISN’T TOO OLD FOR
Even if your dad isn’t an aspiring aerial videographer, a drone is still the ultimate high flying Father’s Day gift! Pick the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 if your dad is a drone rookie or splurge on the DJI Inspire 1, if your father has already earned his wings. Currently considered the “crème de la crème of consumer drones,” the DJI Inspire 1 offers up dual-operator control and 4K video capture at 30 frames per second. Need we say more?
GIFT YOUR DAD AN AROMATIC EXPERIENCE
Some dads are creatures of habit. They’ve used the same cologne for years, yet they secretly long for something new to shake things up a bit. One way to introduce your father to a fresh fragrance is to pick the world’s most expensive perfume (even the bottle says so): No. 1 by Clive Christian. Understated yet richly distinctive, it is full and smooth with notes of amber and ancient Indian sandalwood. Of course you could also try one of Tom Ford’s Eau de Parfum decanters (they’re all heavenly) or a fragrance by the House of Creed.
GIFT YOUR DAD ANOTHER ADVENTURE
A jetsetter can never own too many suitcases, especially one whose luggage has logged many, many, many miles. Our current favourite brand of premium travel and carry-on luggage is Rimowa —considered Europe’s leading manufacturer of aluminium and polycarbonate baggage. Buy your father a few solid pieces from their ‘Topas Titanium’ range for maximum impact. Though the brand has been around since 1898, their ‘groovy’ suitcases are as modern as they come. (Dad doesn’t need suitcases? Opt for a Bottega Veneta briefcase instead.)
GIFT YOUR DAD AN ACCESSORY FOR HIS ACCESSORIES
Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe — dad already owns one of each? Unless he has a specific timepiece on his wish list at the moment, why not opt for a watch winder instead? Wolf makes wonderful, handcrafted watch winders in single to eight piece configurations. Though several other brands exist, Wolf is regarded as the market leader, with a legacy that dates back over 180 years.
