This year, get your gift game spot-on 

Whether they admit it or not, all dads want to be showered in gifts come Father’s Day and, in case you missed the fanfare, this year it falls on June 18th.

Commercial nonsense it may well be, but nobody wants to be the one that left it too late to buy anything better than a pair of gaudy socks. So, why not buy him something he really wants instead.

If your old man, grandpa, step-dad or father-in-law isn’t the power tool bearing, slipper-wearing type, updating his look for summer will really set his style – and your present-buying skills – apart from the crowd. 

Shopping for a fashionable fella? Luckily there are plenty of options to spoil him. 

If you’re looking to splash the cash on a special present a watch proves both a indulgent and handy gift. For ultimate style points, invest in a minimalist one from Swiss brand Larson & Jennings that will promise to add a little flair to every look.

Alternatively, opting for other high-style accessories like a sleek cardholder or bag will do the trick. 

If you’re brave enough, update his wardrobe by gifting a classic tee or a pair of blindingly-white but oh-so-versatile trainers. The trick here is to keep your sartorial gifts simple and effortless. 

Now, if you find that the man in your life has a knack for surreptitiously delving in to your stash of scrubs, shower gels and face creams, buying them their own this Father’s Day does everyone a favour. 

If you’re looking for a fragrance there are plenty of new season launches up for grabs but for a classic scent that will stand the test of time we suggest Tom Ford’s Black Orchid or Le Labo Santal 33.

Likewise, it’s always worth spoiling him when it comes to a bath time treat or some pint-sized skincare for his travels.
