Father's Day 2014: The best gifts for dads from box sets to bottomless booze

 

The wireless wireless

The latest addition to the Roberts radio Revival edition, the Blutune is based on the popular 1970s Rambler model (above), with a wooden case, DAB/FM modes and bluetooth technology so you can stream music from your laptop/tablet. Swish. £130, robertsradio.co.uk

Waste product

Celebrating 75 years of rather lovely wastepaper bins, and other household delights, this anniversary poster from Danish brand Vipp will please any design enthusiast. €27, vipp.com

Bun fight

Head to London's Seven Dials for beef tataki and black sesame crème brûlée (plus bottomless booze) with the all-in Sunday brunch menu at the Japanese 'Izakaya' Flesh and Buns. Sounds weird, tastes good. £29 per head, fleshandbuns.com

 

Box clever

Whether his thing is Matthew McConaughey being broody in 'True Detective', or the saga of blood and naked people that is 'Game of Thrones', there's something for every dad with an HBO box-set. From £39.99 on Blu-ray

Going, going, Gonzo

As soon as Taschen releases an edition of Hunter S Thompson and Ralph Steadman's 'The Curse of Lono', it sells out. Be quick, then, to grab the new quarter-bound version of the wacky duo's brilliant 1983 report. £19.99

Scent of a man

With its freshly-scented botanics and neutral, graphic packaging, Malin+Goetz's Essential Kit is perfect for the man about town. We particularly love the bergamot body wash. £20, spacenk.com
