While Father’s Day may look a little different this year (hello lockdown 6.0), that’s not a reason to rest on your laurels and opt for the easy route when it comes to spoiling dad on his dedicated day (gift vouchers are so 2020, guys).
Father’s Day is the perfect chance to celebrate all the father figures in your life – whether you’re able to do so in person or not – so putting in a little effort will mean the world when it comes to celebrating your dad.
Yes, we know that gift buying can be somewhat daunting. Dads are all different and have a range of personal interests and hobbies. But here you shall find the best curated Father’s Day Gift Guide for every kind of dad just in time for Sunday, September 5th.
FOR THE GROOMING EXPERT
For the dad looking to up his scent game, this cologne by Giorgio Armani is masculine and contemporary, blending aquatic notes with a fusion of aromatic essences and a marine woody accord that encapsulates the range’s sea origins.
Think notes of fresh green mandarin and marine undertones, subtle spice, patchouli and musk; the signature fragrance is housed within a frosted glass bottle that pays tribute to Giorgio Armani’s most iconic colour…navy blue.
A good all-rounder cologne.
FOR THE WHISKY LOVER
The Macallan 12-Year-Old Triple Cask Single Malt Whisky
What dad doesn’t like the finest Scotch whisky? A great all-rounder gift, this new drop from The Macallan is triple cask matured for 12 years, and sees the perfect union of a series of single malt whiskies. The result? A phenomenally smooth and delicate whisky, full of body, character, with hints of citrus fruits, vanilla and fresh oak on the palate.
Oh, and if you haven’t seen, The Macallan has recently teamed with Bentley Motors to curate a seriously cool collaboration for the ages. Well worth checking out, folks.
FOR THE DAD ON THE GO
If dad ever wanted to wear a pant that felt like trackies but looked like a stylish tailored chino, Lululemon’s ABC Pant is a must-buy. For the dad on the move, this slim-fit pant epitomises comfort, movement and style thanks to its four-way stretch performance fabric (making it great for activities like golf). This latest fabric is tough and can resist everyday wear in a similar way to denim. Comes in a range of colours and will pair perfectly with a casual blazer, knitwear or easily just a plain tee.
FOR THE SUN CHASER
Oblyk is an Australian brand specialising in Italian-made eyewear for men. Entirely handcrafted in the heart of Italy’s Cadore Valley, each pair of Oblyk sunglasses are shaped, assembled and finished by hand by true artisans who use traditional techniques and expertise passed down through generations. The result? A unique pair of premium, quality frames and eyewear that rival even the top global brands.
FOR THE COFFEE SNOB
If dad is into his coffee and is looking for a top-notch filter coffee that is convenient to make and delicious to taste, the Aeropress is the way to go. Coffee gurus Market Lane have curated this convenient bundle to get you started on your Aeropress journey. The Aeropress is an easy and tidy way to make coffee, that includes a full immersion brewing method, coupled with a paper filter, producing a full-bodied coffee with great clarity and clean flavours.
The Jet Set Coffee Kit contains an Aeropress, custom Market Lane Aeropress bag, Aeropress filter papers, a Porlex Mini II coffee grinder, a set of digital pocket scales, and a Market Lane brew guide. Bang for your buck if you ask us!
FOR THE GRILLMASTER
The BBQ of the future is here, and let dad be the coolest of his rat pack with his very own Space Grill. Like many great innovations, Space Grill was created to solve a problem for inventor Ryan Martin, who has been on an all-consuming personal journey to design and create a high-quality, space-saving BBQ that you would be proud to show off to your mates.
The Space Grill is minimal and sleek but comes packed full of features. Available in a 2 or 3-burner, the Space Grill comes with an integrated lid that opens seamlessly whilst acting as the perfect splashback, a laser-etched control panel for great readability, and an intuitive design that prohibits any spillage from occurring thanks to its auto-swing drip tray which moves intuitively with the BBQ. Just grab dad a pair of tongs and he’ll be on his way!
FOR THE WATCH LOVER
The Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic is Swiss watchmaker Rado’s latest release for 2021 and boy is it a beauty! This timepiece is the culmination of many years of research and development married with rich history and tradition. It features some of the brand’s most stellar achievements such as Rado’s innovative high-tech ceramic monobloc case construction, scratch-resistant and hypoallergenic high-tech ceramic, and is powered by the premium Rado calibre R734 featuring a Nivachron hairspring.
The Captain Cook HT Ceramic is a watch for any serious collector and one that we know dad will love, whether he is taking on life’s adventures or simply doing a coffee run.
FOR THE MANCAVE
We’re all spending a copious amount of time at home currently, so why not freshen up dad’s space (or mancave) with premium home fragrance by Lusso Collective. From room sprays to reed diffusers, these fine perfumes are expertly crafted by artisans who use naturally sourced ingredients to create unique scents for your home. No matter his mood, there’s a home fragrance spray or reed diffuser that will leave you feeling energised, renewed and restored – it’s mood therapy that dad is sure to love.
FOR THE GOLFER
Golfwear is all the rage this season, and we’re seeing new and exciting brands adapt clothing lines specific to time spent on the course (and then onwards). P. Johnson recently launched its small P.J Golf collection and we can’t get enough of it (meaning, dad will absolutely froth it, too). Think champagne and army green quarter zip windbreakers, lightweight technical vests and pique polos. Dad will easily be the sharpest dresser on the course this season… hopefully that translates to his scorecard.
FOR THE SNEAKERHEAD
If your dad is a sneaker snob (or perhaps needs to update his footwear repertoire this season) a classic pair of white leather sneakers like the Reebok Club C 85 is a great gift that dad will be able to use for a number of occasions; from walking the streets to heading out on the town.
A simple yet stylish pair of sneakers that have been gracing the streets since 1985, you can’t go wrong with these Reebok sneaks.
FOR THE HYPE BEAST
For the dad that appreciates premium streetwear, one of the most exciting collaborations this year saw the coming together of Puma and Maison Kitsune; vintage meets modern style. It’s a first collaboration for the renowned clothing labels who have taken classic silhouettes and reworked them in a way that’s fresh and exciting. The collection blends together Japanese and French design elements with PUMA’s classic styles and sport heritage, and we think the result is pretty damn cool.
The color palette plays with different shades but keeps it mostly tonal and earthy, perfect to wear either casually or formally, like this t-shirt below.
FOR THE SLEEPY HEAD
Does dad love a good snooze? Well, treat him to the feeling of sleeping among the clouds with a new bed set by the guys at The Sheet Society, who are making bed sheeting great again. Unveiling a new spring collection, you can pick from on-trend gingham prints in key warming colours or keep it simple with a linen set-up that is suitable all year round.
The hallmarks of The Sheet Society bedding are seriously a cut above the rest. Think deep fitting sheets with extra-wide elastic, ensuring your sheets are snug on all mattress depths. Or the signature zip closure on quilt covers that makes seeting the bed a breeze (no more fumbling over buttons on swap-over Sundays, guys).
To make deciding all the easier, try The Sheet Society’s ‘Bed Builder’ which allows you to mix and match selections to find the ultimate bed set.
FOR THE FITNESS FANATIC
If dad is into his fitness, a sports watch is a must-have for any activity he throws himself into. Enter Suunto 7 Titanium GPS watch. Not just a sports watch but a seriously stylish timepiece that will do whatever you need it to. This is Suunto’s first watch that combines a versatile sports experience and free offline outdoor maps with helpful smartwatch features from Wear OS by Google. Suunto 7 Titanium features a robust titanium bezel and an ultra-soft microfiber textile strap that flexes perfectly around your wrist for a comfortable, breathable and secure fit.
FOR THE SWIMMER
If dad is looking to the warmer days with anticipation, why not set him up with a premium pair of swim shorts by Patémar. The signature swim shorts by Patémar are made entirely out of upcycled plastic wastes from landfill and from the ocean. The sustainable material is then crafted by master tailors in small batches to ensure the highest of quality. The sartorial fit of these swim shorts is premium and stylish and plays with unique patterns that are made to honor tradition and celebrate life, both in and out of the water.
