When paying homage to the Old Man, it’s important to give a considered gift that adequately reflects his direct role in our creation. And not necessarily the biological part – there are plenty of step-fathers, grandfathers, big brothers and guardians who star in the paternal role in our lives.
This man is your North Star, your guiding light, your port in a storm – the man who helped shape you into the very fine person you are today. Trying to sum that up in gift form is never easy. So, as someone who typically wants or needs for nothing – or at least pretends to – let’s assume that something practical, indulgent or drinkable (or a winning combination of all three) is the way to go.
Or perhaps, you’re the daddy now – and those sleepless nights deserve some form of consolation prize? Fret no more, we’ve got the best ‘one-for-him, one-for-me’ Father’s Day gift list going.
Cover up in a Casamera robe for more stylish loafing
Replacing his tatty bathrobe is a good place to start – and not with just any old white dressing gown that will turn an unappealing shade of greige in the wash.
Casamera make superior, 100% cotton robes in a generous waffle fabric in sizes S through to XXXL. Available in a palette of cool shades such as denim, an aged washed out blue, and pistachio, a subtle light green hue, this hooded, belted style features an eyewear loop on the lapel to keep specs and sunnies within easy reach, while the roomy pockets will safely prevent the elusive TV remote from being swallowed by the couch.
The pure cotton material makes it the perfect post-shower or post-swim attire; it’s absorbent, odour resistant and breathable, with colour fade protection.
And, if you really want to spoil him, Casamera also make slippers in matching fabric with a wide fit, and a comfort cushioned suede sole.
Send him to work with fine Italian leather
Father’s Day is the ideal excuse to buy him something he’d never treat himself to. If premium leather goods sit on his side of needless extravagance, that doesn’t mean he’ll have any issues accepting yours.
Founded by French-Argentinian Guillermo Boyle, his namesake line of leather accessories is hand made in Italy using the finest quality calf leather from one of the most sustainable Italian tanneries, and presented in FSC paper boxes with branded dust bags for safe-keeping. Here are three foolproof items from the range.
The Iconic GB Briefcase
Whose dad wouldn’t benefit from upping their style game for those face-to-face meetings? Prospective clients will surely approve of this well-organised leather receptacle.
Available in black, brown, or two tone with contrast handles, the GB briefcase has top handles and an optional shoulder strap that can be stowed in a bespoke Alcantara pouch.
With full length interior pockets and compartments for essential documents, an outer pocket to house smaller essentials, plus a leather key ring with a handy magnetic tab so there’s less painful rummaging in the depths to locate them, it’s the promotion his wardrobe is looking for.
The Vauban Classic Wallet
This classic wallet features an aluminium interior card case with thoroughly modern RFID blocking technology to keep your data secure. It holds up to seven credit cards, and has slots for receipts and folded bills, while allowing quick access at the push of a button.
Super slim, it won’t ruin the line of his suit, plus Boyle make two special editions: one with the embossed lettering picked out in gold, and one with a stainless steel interior card case – just to be that little bit extra.
The Bompard Bracelet
Furnish his wrist with a contemporary leather bracelet crafted from cross-hatched leather. The Bompard bracelet features an asymmetric stainless steel buckle and comes in four shades of leather, which magically cover most formal to casual outfits.
Wet his whistle with the finest tipple
Is pops a whisky connoisseur? Hazelwood House in Dufftown is the family seat of the Gordon family, which has spent many generations casking Scotch whiskies to produce a fine, rare aged stock under the House of Hazelwood banner.
Mature stock is only released when it’s ready, and in very limited batches. Break the bank – or club together with relatives – to gift him 70cl of this liquid gold and anoint the new star of his drinks cabinet.
Sunshine on Speyside
A hand labelled, individually-numbered decanter houses the amber nectar of this 39 year aged Speyside blended scotch whisky, which has notes of fresh pineapple, charred fruit and old-fashioned sweet shops.
Congrats if he can recall what he was doing in the early 1980s, when it was bottled.
Matured in American white oak casks, The Lowlander spotlights the craft of the unsung lowland distilleries with an exceptional, unusual blend that opens with freshly cut grass, a sweet note of spun sugar and fading to dry star fruit.
The youngest, and most pricey whisky in our edit, The Tops is a 33-year-old blend of the best of the best. Rich and decadent, with dark notes of treacle and a strong cask influence, experienced palates may detect maraschino cherries, crystallised rose petals and coffee beans.
Served similarly in a hand labelled, individually-numbered decanter.

Smooth it out in smart linen – without the tell-tale creases
Smart-casual wardrobe in need of a refresh? Summer wedding on the cards? You can’t go wrong with gifting him top-to-toe linen for his default summer look.
L’Estrange London was created by two designers on a mission to simplify men’s wardrobes. This honed collection of elevated basics for everyday life is made in a conscious way using responsible fabrics and traceable supply chains.
The following three items work perfectly as a full outfit or as work- horse separates that can handle any social occasion.
The Linen 24 Blazer
The Linen 24 Blazer is made in Portugal from a blend of premium Italian cotton and linen with 3% stretch to maintain shape. Unstructured, it features a narrower waist with a deeper hem and no cuff detailing for easier tailoring.
Available in navy (for the practical) and ivory (for the indulgent), it’s a go-to blazer for summer and beyond.
The All Day Shirt Linen Collarless
Made using a blend of organic cotton and linen with 3% stretch, this silky-soft collarless shirt comes in white, off-white, olive and navy – so you can match with the Linen 24 Blazer or create a contrast with another colour.
Unlike classic linen which creases easily, the blended material is less sheer and less prone to wrinkling for a smoother, pressed look.
The 24 Trouser Linen
Unlike regular linen trousers, the 24 trouser is made with a specific blend of organic linen, organic cotton, and a tiny amount of elastane for a silky-soft, crease-resistant finish that’s good for year-round wear.
Designed without belt loops, the hidden elastic waistband and inner cord fastening stretch for the perfect fit, and extra length hidden in the hem to accommodate a longer inseam.
Choose the matching shade to coordinate with the blazer and shirt, or style it up with a contrast.
Mark the occasion with a modern piece of jewellery
Men’s jewellery is having a bit of a renaissance with plenty of red carpet inspiration from the recent awards season, which saw a fair smattering of pearls, diamonds and lapel brooch displays.
At Jaxxon, you can get the look for less, with a wide range of fine fashion jewellery including Cuban link chains, pearl necklaces, iced neck chains, religious pendants and rings, all at a sizeable reduction from typical designer alternatives.
Jaxxon Cuban Link Chain
Missed the hype around Paul Mescal’s breakout performance as Connell in Normal People? A sizeable chunk of coverage was devoted to his character’s silver neck chain.
In a clear case of ‘best supporting role by a piece of jewellery’ who could deny the appeal of such a sixth form style move? And, who wouldn’t want a slice of that aphrodisiac for Father’s Day?
Make like Connell and rekindle that connection, using this fine 3mm, 20-inch Cuban Link chain. It’s made in Italy from quality 925 sterling silver and coated in rhodium to give it a lasting shine and durability.
Jaxxon Pearl Rondelle Necklace
Harry Styles single-handedly put pearls back on the map for men (OK, Pharrell Williams was on it first with Chanel, but Harry really brought it home with cult brand Éliou).

Jaxxon Signet Ring
A contemporary take on a classic design, this solid gold signet ring has tapered edges in a brush finished satin textured lustre, along with a blank flattened top just waiting for your personal engraving.

Stand out in the boardroom with Mystic Magic cufflinks
If your dad spends most of his working week in boardrooms and business meetings, he will appreciate a fine pair of cufflinks.
