Father’s Day is fast approaching – this year it falls on June 17 – and it offers the perfect opportunity to really say thank you to the man who has shown you unconditional love over the years.

But this time round let’s take a break from the practical home appliances, pairs of socks and “World’s Best Dad” mugs and give him something he really wants instead.

If your dad, grandfather, step-dad or father-in-law is the kind of guy that knows a thing or two about personal style, there are luckily plenty of ways you can indulge his interests and spoil him at the same time.

Shopping for a fashionable fella? Then why not give him a gift that’s as incredible and reliable as he is.

Something that will really set him and his style apart from the crowd, a watch is both a practical and indulgent offering. We suggest investing in something from Scandinavian brand Skagen that, while minimalist in design, promises maximum style points.

Alternatively, pep up his back pocket with a high-style accessory like a sleek cardholder from Filson. Made from sumptuous leather, their offerings put a stylish spin on an otherwise everyday essential.

You could also help to update his wardrobe for summer – but if you’re worried about getting it wrong, stick to something like a classic T-shirt in an agreeable colour.

If the guy in your life is more into grooming than garb, you could also spoil him with some pint-sized skincare for his travels or a new luxurious fragrance.

As far as new launches go, Chanel’s new variation Bleu de Chanel Parfum is a failsafe option, while those who prefer something a little different should opt for a zesty seasonal scent like Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino.
