Father’s Day is fast approaching, so here’s your chance to spoil your father figure with a lavish gift. You may be stuck for ideas – what do you get the man who has everything? Keep reading for our picks of this year’s most luxurious presents, guaranteed to impress any discerning dad.
Whisky Delivered by a Dog
For the man with a soft spot for animals, this combination of dogs and alcohol makes for the perfect gift.
Shortie the Jack Russell Terrier is Ardbeg’s adorable mascot, and he’ll personally deliver a bottle of their Ten Years Old whisky straight to Dad’s door. The trusty terrier’s package also includes a limited edition bone-shaped tin and your personal message.
Aside from puppy cuddles, Dad will also enjoy the single malt scotch from Islay. It’s a must-try for any whisky aficionado, rich in peat and malt flavours with a smoky yet mellow taste.
Tom Ford Private Blend Reserve Collection
Give the gift of self-care with the Tom Ford Private Blend Reserve Collection. Released earlier this year, the set includes the American designer’s most coveted fragrances, including some previously-retired blends.
The brand is known for its exquisitely tantalising and complex perfumes that are unmistakably masculine. With eight nature-inspired scents to choose from, including favourites like Arabian Wood, Italian Cypress and Velvet Gardenia, Dad will be spoilt for choice.
He’ll also be wowed by the beautiful presentation: the elegant, brown bottles are adorned with gold plaques and packaged in a matching box.
Rolex Yacht-Master 42
Fathers with a penchant for sailing will be sure to appreciate one of Rolex’s latest releases: the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42.
This classic nautical watch has been redesigned in a larger 42mm edition and comes in a sleek black-and-white colourway. The monochrome look will add a modern touch to any outfit.
The timepiece features a matt black dial and is constructed in 18-karat white gold, while the black Oysterflex bracelet lends it a sporty look. The luminous Chromalight display ensures you’ll always be able to read the time, even in darkness.
The watch is powered by a high-tech calibre 3235 movement, a next-generation technology developed by Rolex that is revolutionising standards of precision and dependability in watchmaking.
Bottega Veneta Briefcase
Help Dad stand out from the crowd during his daily commute with this elegant briefcase. The pinnacle of Italian luxury and craftsmanship, Bottega Veneta is famed for its premium-quality fashion and leather goods.
The briefcase is handmade using intrecciato, the brand’s signature leather-weaving technique. The effect is reminiscent of a tartan pattern, crafted from soft olive-green lambskin with black accents and a removable nylon strap.
There’s plenty of space for all of Dad’s belongings, with two zippered exterior pockets, a padded internal compartment to protect his laptop and two interior pockets.
Grado GS3000e Headphones
Grado Labs, a family-run business operating from Brooklyn, has built a reputation for the unmatched quality of their high-end headphones.
Each pair from their Statement series features wooden housing inspired by classical instruments, giving them a unique look. The GS3000e headphones are lovingly hand-crafted from cocobolo, a type of wood sourced from Central America and used in a variety of musical instruments, from oboes to guitars. The material adds a distinct richness and warmth to music, sure to delight any audiophile dad.
The open-back headphones utilise 50mm signature drivers and are especially attuned to low frequencies. Heavy music listeners like rock and hip-hop fans will enjoy a truly transformative listening experience.
