Father’s Day Gift Ideas: A Guide To Shopping The Perfect Present

Be the favourite child this year, with this amazing lot...

While we believe we should make our dads feel special every day of the year, there’s something to be said for having one day each year dedicated to celebrating the special men in our lives. So here’s a somewhat early warning for you: Father’s Day is officially around the corner and will kick off Sunday, June 18.

As fussy as our mums may be, everyone knows that dads are impossible to shop for. Because, let’s face it, there’s a limit to how many wallet holders one man needs in a lifetime and chances are, your old man has amassed his fair share of socks and ties over the years too.

When it comes to snapping up gifts for our dads then, it’s safe to say we’re all guilty of covering familiar ground (it’s hard not to!) but if you are going to down that route this year, take it up a notch.

Upgrading his cologne collection isn’t a bad place to start. Aqua di Parma is the crème de la crème of perfumes so you’ll get serious brownie points if you treat your old man to the brand’s signature Colonia scent. Made from a blend of Sicilian citrus fruits, crisp English lavender, Bulgarian rose and sandalwood, it’s perfect for summer but it’s also the type of scent he’ll love all year round.

We all know that dads can’t be trusted when it comes to shopping for clothes on their own so steer him in the right direction with a few key accessories. Zara are always spot on when it comes to their menswear and have a great pair of brown brogues he’ll never want to take off.

Can you name a dad who doesn’t appreciate a great watch? Us neither. So if yours is a serious watch aficionado, you’re in luck because Meller Brand watches have a whole host of great modern styles he’ll love in prices that won’t make you weep. Take its Astar timepiece for example. Sapphire coated crystal and stainless steel (fancy!), plus interchangeable leather straps. A special piece that he’s bound to cherish and is totally worth the £65 price tag.

Whatever your dad is into, there’s a gift out there for him so to help get you on the right path, we’ve done the hard work and scoured the high street for special gifts he’s bound to love. So what are you waiting for? Sit back and prepare to be the favourite kid this year…
