He's not a regular dad, he's a cool dad
It’s Father’s Day! Well, it’s Father’s Day soon – on the 20th of June, to be precise. What we really mean is that it’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day, and the various ways in which you can shower yours, or whoever it is that’s played a fatherly role in your life, with adoration and gifts. But also gratitude. But equally, and more importantly, GIFTS. Dads are notoriously hard to buy for, so we’ve gathered some luxury gift ideas for the occasion. Whether yours likes fancy food, appropriate vessels for steaming cups of tea or simply telling the time in the traditional way, there’s something for every dad here.
HAKKASAN X HADID caviar
HAKKASAN X HADID CAVIAR FATHER’S DAY FINISH-AT-HOME BOX, £190
Well, we did say luxury gift ideas. For Father’s Day, Hakkasan has partnered with HADID Caviar – which is incidentally Bella and Gigi’s father’s caviar company – to offer a restaurant meal kit to rival all restaurant meal kits. It contains a selection of dim sum, Hakkasan’s signature Peking duck with pancakes, spicy prawns, hakka noodles, stir fried baby broccoli and chocolate and hibiscus soufflé. Your dad won’t want to share it, but you will force him to – come hell or high water!
TIMEX X YMC
TIMEX X YMC 25TH ANNIVERSARY DIGITAL WATCH, £79
What on earth do you buy a discerning dad who has an aversion to using his phone to tell the time for Father’s Day? A watch, obviously. And, because it’s unfussy yet fantastic, the Timex x YMC 25th Anniversary Digital Watch is our recommendation.
CASA CARTA MUG SET OF 2, £40
It’s strange that ‘mug’ is a slur. What’s so damning about such a useful piece of crockery? Still, if you want to buy your father a mug for Father’s Day it’s best to select a marvellous one – or two, as is the case with these by Casa Carta.
RILEY STUDIO ORGANIC COTTON WORKWEAR JACKET, £295 AT KHOEO
Now, this may appear to be a woman’s jacket, but all Riley Studio’s sizing is gender neutral. Their clothes are for everyone, in other words – including your dad. We predict that this will become somewhat of an heirloom.
PORTOBELLO ROAD SAVOURY GIN, £35 AT THE DISTILLERY
Is gin a dad drink? Well, now it is. With notes of green olive and rosemary (among other things), Portobello Road’s Savoury Gin is something that you wish to sample immediately. Therefore your father will be receiving it as a gift on Sunday and that’s that.
ACNE STUDIOS SMALL MESSENGER BAG, £120
A thing to put things in! We all need one – even dads! And there is none better than this here by Acne Studios.
