Last Minute But Thoughtful Father’s Day Gifts



Men will always profess to ‘not want anything!’ for Father’s Day and then be thoroughly disappointed when they are not spoilt rotten...

So this year, why not reward all of those inimitable dad jokes with a gift that shows not only how much he means to you but just how much you listen…


IF ALL HE WANTS IS A GARDEN SHED…

So the real thing might be tricky but one of the ‘World of Sheds’ prints by Tom Pigeon isn’t. The online store is filled with great gift ideas for dads and they are offering 20 per cent off with the code DAD18. (Print, £40, tompigeon.com)

IF ALL HE WANTS IS A NIGHT AWAY…

Then you must introduce him to Soho Home. Created by the brains behind London’s Soho House, it is filled with gifts to make him feel like he is at the most luxurious hotel. Our favourite to relax in style? The House Robe, by Italian luxury brand Frette – especially personalised with his initials.


House Robe, £60, www.sohohome.com


IF ALL HE WANTS IS A QUICK SHOWER…

Then there can really be only one gift, Claus Porto’s soap-on-a-rope – a true classic – especially the spiced citrus scent. And if you really want to spoil him, treat him to a cologne, shaving cream or shaving brush from the Musgo Real range – it’s all incredibly chic.


Soap, £18, www.clausporto.com


IF ALL HE WANTS IS TO SAVE HIS MONEY…

Il Bussetto’s seamless, polished leather wallets will be perfect. They are surprisingly affordable, especially when you consider each one has been handcrafted using time-honoured Tuscan techniques, and he will love counting his pennies.


Wallet, £85, www.ilbussetto.com


IF ALL HE LOVES TO CHANGE HIS SOCKS…

Then make his hosiery the envy of the office with the London Sock Company’s stylish gift box. This selection of six colourful Scottish Lisle Cotton styles was chosen by British style icon David Gandy – what more endorsement does he need?

IF ALL HE WANTS IS A MINUTE’S PEACE…

Then why not help him to drown out the incessant noise with Bose’s brilliant wireless, noise-cancelling headphones. With Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology they continuously measure and react to outside noise, then cancel it with the opposite signal. They work on audio for films too if he wants to get stuck into a Netflix marathon.


QuietComfort 35 II, £329.95, www.bose.co.uk


IF ALL HE WANTS IS A QUICK SHAVE…

Ensure it is the finest with Harry’s Winston Shave Set engraved with his initials – it was voted by GQ as the best razor for the smoothest shave.


Personalised shaving set, £24, www.harrys.com


IF ALL HE WANTS IS TO GO FOR A RUN…

Then a month’s membership at Third Space luxury London health clubs should do the trick. Offering fitness and relaxation in a super-slick setting, they are ideal for stressed-out, time-strapped dads.

IF ALL HE WANTS TO BE IS THE BOSS…

Treat him to one of Smythson’s ‘The Boss’ notebooks, or better yet some of his own personalised stationery to make him feel like he really is the Master of the Universe.


Wafer Notebook, £35, www.smythson.com


IF ALL HE WANTS IS TO SMELL GOOD…

Byredo’s Mister Marvelous fragrance is currently the coolest thing to boast on any bathroom shelf. With notes of Mandarin, Neroli Flower and Cedarwood, it will make him feel, well, marvellous. Or for a thriftier alternative why not try the Suede handwash and hand cream instead.


Eau de Parfum, £105, www.byredo.co.uk


IF ALL HE WANTS IS A KICK ABOUT…

Why not head to Skylight, London’s cool rooftop destination, located above Tobacco Dock in Wapping. Boasting three floors with penalty shoot-out goals, croquet courts and pétanque, as well as ice-cold beers, summer cocktails and street food from YIRO and Flip Side.


Free entry, children welcome 12-6pm at weekends and lawn games start at £15, www.skylightlondon.com


IF ALL HE WANTS IS A HAIRCUT…

Then book him into the wonderful speakeasy-style barbershop at The Ned hotel in the City of London. He can have a haircut, facial, manicure and a traditional wet shave like a true modern gent. There are complimentary beers too.


Back and sides, £40, www.thened.com
