The ultimate Father’s Day gift guide

From gadgets to grooming, smartwatches to socks, there's something for every dad in our ultimate Father's Day gift guide.

FRAGRANCE

Master perfumer Dominique Ropion, the nose behind some of the world’s most beloved perfumes including Portrait of a Lady, Flowerbomb and La Vie Est Belle is the creator of the new Y Le Parfum, a bracing new take on a best-selling scent with a unique lavender heart. Tom Ford Costa Azzurra is a light, woody scent of summer, as is Boss Bottled United’s blend of citrus, mint, vetiver and patchouli. Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb’s new iteration includes Habanero Pimento chilli pepper, a first in men’s fragrance, for a rush of spices that bring the heat.

GROOMING

Turn an everyday task into an indulgent treat with Father’s Day grooming gifts from Czech & Speake, Le Labo, Tom Ford and Spotlight.

ACCESSORIES

Giving socks isn’t a rubbish present when it’s from London Sock Co, with each sock embroidered in a different colour to forever end the tyranny of sock matching. If your dad has an eye for detail, step up his accessories with Barbour’s tartan wash bag, replace his battered old shades with these 100% ethically sourced wood and eco-friendly champagne acetate sunglasses or his crumbling wallet with Loewe’s chic embossed logo card holder.

ALCOHOL

The world’s first Midleton Craft Collection Whiskey Store is now open in Brown Thomas Dublin, with the first bottle of Midleton Very Rare Silent Distillery Collection Chapter Two to go on sale. It’s one of just 70, priced at a cool €40,000. Closer to your budget might be the miniatures set of Redbreast 12, Green Spot, Powers Johns Lane, and Midleton Barry Crockett, which should be paired with Mimi+Martha’s whiskey tumblers. Make every can or bottle a freshly pulled pub pint with Fizzics DraftPour, and store it all in a retro globe drinks cabinet.

TECH

For a dad always straining his eyes at the phone or bet into a Netflix binge, ease his eye strain with Ambr Eyewear’s luxe blue-light filtering glasses, or boost his tv’s quality with Samsung’s 4K Neo QLED or a pocket projector.

SPORT

If gadgets make your dad tick, try a smartwatch packed with tech to improve his game, a massage gun to ease knots and pains or let him flex his engineering muscle with the 1,580 piece Lego and Porsche collaboration.

SHOES

Wouldn’t know where to start with buying your dad shoes? Stick to the classics, that will last for seasons to come, like Reiss’ smooth white leather trainers, John Tweed Tailored’s lightweight brown suede Double Monkstrap, classic M&S Chelsea boots or the unmatched comfort of Ugg slippers.

FOOD

For foodie dads, modernize his kitchen equipment this Father’s Day with Ottolenghi’s new tableware, Whittard’s sophisticated coffee press, a slick new BBQ kit or the sculptural masterpiece that is the Oliver Bonas oil and vinegar bottle.

SLEEPWEAR

Truly stuck for Father’s Day? You’ll struggle to find a more comfortable men’s dressing gown than The White Company’s or Tekla’s, or elevate your dad’s sleepwear from dingy to dapper with timeless matching sets from Paul Stuart and M&S.

BOOKS

Keep your dad entertained for hours with breathtaking imagery of Muhammad Ali, cars, record sleeves or with the story of Jack Charlton’s life, in his own words.
