The ultimate Father’s Day gift guide

Posted On By Director

Father’s Day is just around the corner on 18 June and, with the memory of the past few Zoom-obligatory washouts finally fading, your old man is sure to appreciate a truly impressive gift this year. Dads, however, can be deceptively hard to buy for. Sure, he’s really into golf/whisky/cooking/craft beer (delete as appropriate) but he’s also bought himself every conceivable accessory and piece of kit going for his chosen hobby. It pays, then, to look beyond the obvious to find something timeless that he’d never think to buy for himself but is guaranteed to love. From personalised spirits to Savile Row-worthy style and brilliant grooming products, here’s our ultimate Father’s Day gift guide for 2023.

Wine & Spirits gifts

Few and far between are the fathers who don’t enjoy a tipple or two and, whether your dad is a cognac connoisseur or a whisky whizz, you’ll be thanked for calling on the experts to make your selection. Thankfully, a boom in specialist online retailers means you’ll never be short on suggestions when it comes to finding your dad’s next favourite drink. When it comes to whisky you can’t go wrong with a discovery set – especially if he’s an avid fan who loves trying a new single malt. Glenmorangie’s A Taste of the Forest and A Taste of Winter gift set features two of the Scottish distiller’s finest limited edition expressions presented in gorgeous illustrated boxes. Alternatively, gift him a bottle of baijiu – possibly the world’s most popular spirit you’ve never heard of. Boasting 6,000 years of Chinese heritage, serve over ice to savour the sophisticated herbal and umami flavours.

Of course, not every man is into spirits, and if your dad favours the noble grape then how about a bottle of limited edition Veuve Clicquot Le Granda Dame 2015? Housed in a special gift box, created in collaboration with Italian ceramicist Paola Paronetto, it’s the perfect addition to your dad’s home bar. Alternatively, Harvey Nichols’ A Drink for Every Course hamper is the perfect gift for foodies and consummate hosts alike.

Grooming gifts

We’re of the humble opinion that no man ‘doesn’t do’ grooming – he just hasn’t found the right products yet. How better, then, to introduce your father to the wonderful world of moisturisers and serums than with Lorenzi Milaon’s seriously chic manicure set? Crafted from elegant mother-of-pearl, it contains a full complement on tools – including nail scissors, a file, clippers, tweezers, nail cleaning tool and round-tip scissors – and is a guaranteed game-changer. Complete the set with Nursem’s retro-style hand creams. This handy duo includes a full-size pump bottle for home and a handy travel size he can keep on him wherever he goes.

If fragrance is more his thing, Acqua di Parma’s Colonia C.L.U.B. scent is a refreshing and invigorating blend of pink pepper, rosemary, bergamot and lemon we guarantee he’ll want to wear every day. Finally, Molton Brown has released a new range of Infinite bottles designed to last forever and be refilled time and time again, vastly reducing the single-use plastic footprint of his shower routine. We’re particular fans of the black pepper scent. Smell good and feel great? We’re sold.

Style gifts

While we’d never suggest you be so bold as to buy clothes for your mother, dads tend to be a little more relaxed and open with their style. The perfect opportunity, then, to introduce him to some brands he may not previously have considered. Take, for example, Giorgio Armani’s Oscar Isaac-style boxy overshirt. Or perhaps Rag & Bone’s Cuban shirt, knitted in a vintage-style with relaxed shoulders perfect for balmy summer days, is more his style?

If you feel more comfortable gifting the finishing touches, we’d recommend you go down the versatile and made-to-last route. Cutler & Gross’ round-frame sunglasses are a great addition to any man’s collection while Smythson’s slim briefcase is perfect for finally persuading your dad to ditch his beaten old rucksack.
