The 10 Best Father's Day gifts

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Is your dad sick of socks? There’s no need to be stuck for ideas when buying a present for the most important man in your life.

{1} Venchi Chocolate Cigars

Finally, a cigar that doesn’t come with a health warning. Dads shouldn’t be too disappointed when they clip the end of one of these smokes – the luxurious sweet is beautifully crafted by one of the world’s finest Italian chocolatiers.

£24, 020 3632 1668

{2} (Malin + Goetz) Chamomile Treatment Oil

For the dad who takes care of himself, there’s no finer gift than this. It is like a whole salon in one with a chamomile oil and vitamin concoction that can be used as an intense facial oil and after-shower moisturiser for body. It even helps out with dry scalps.

£52, liberty.co.uk

{3} Johnnie Walker Blue

A full bottle of this drink of the gods will set you back £130 but this tasty nip is the perfect way to treat Dad to one of the finest blended whiskies on the planet in a (reasonably) more affordable way. Aged for 60 years in hand-selected casks, it has an intense flavour which just keeps on giving.

£52.15, thewhiskyexchange.com

{4} Bicycle travel journal

Has Dad discovered elastane and measuring all his bike-ride times on his smartphone? If so, this journal should encourage him to record the memories of all his bike rides with its beautiful drawings, maps and guided rides. Plus there’s plenty of space for all his training notes.

£12.95, culturelabel.com

{5} Hanging WashBag

A luxurious washbag made from canvas and leather that should act as a healthy reminder that your dad still needs to trim his beard regularly. Once hooked on a door, the bag unrolls to reveal a range of pockets and pouches for everything from toothbrushes to razors – it’s as useful for travel as it is in the home.

£50, celticandco.com

{6} Malden iPad Sleeve (Ochre)

A rustic, classic-looking case to keep an iPad looking smart and safe. The beautifully crafted sleeve is stitched from  buffalo leather with a cream suede-effect lining.

£50, filofax.co.uk

{7} The Gentleman’s Relish: Patum Peperium (71g)

Quite possibly the nicest addition to a slice of toast since butter, Gentleman’s Relish, which is a type of anchovy paste, is strong, full of flavour, and the perfect afternoon snack. An excellent gift for any foodie, the relish can also be added to a wide range of recipes to add an extra punch to a portion.

£2.89, ocado.com

{8} BHS Belt

For the dad who takes great pleasure telling his offspring to pull up their trousers, this rather fashionable belt should take the wind out of his sails. The on-trend canvas number is a fraction of the price of many similar high-street versions.

£12, bhs.co.uk

{9} Personalised Photo Montage Cushion

Gifts don’t come much cheesier than this, but sometimes a photo really can say it all. It’s a great opportunity to get a collection of Pop’s most embarrassing moments immortalised on a high-quality, super-soft faux-suede cushion.

From £45, 55max.com

{10} The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Treat Dad to a luxury read from the Folio Society. Its collection boasts hundreds of beautifully republished classics. This edition of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is cloth-bound, and illustrated by the award-winning artist Jonathan Burton.

£24.95, foliosociety.com
