A Gift Guide: For Every Kind of Dad

A Gift Guide: For Every Kind of Dad

Dads may differ in their personalities and interests, but one thing is certain: every dad is special and unique in their own way. Show the father figures in your life some love this Father’s Day (Sunday 18th June, 2023) with our small selection of gift ideas catered to every type of Dad.

For the ‘Fashion Conscious’ Dad

Is he the walking epitome of all things style and fashion? If you’ve spent the latter part of your lifetime exchanging the best style tips with your dad, we suggest getting him one of these as the perfect addition to complete his smart look. This reversible belt from Montblanc [left] is an excellent way to achieve the right amount of contrast by breaking up colours in a monochromatic outfit. This stylish watch [right] from Gucci features a black chronograph dial on a classic black leather strap. Taking him from day to night, it will complement any of his outfits with minimal effort. 



For the ‘Sports Enthusiast’ Dad:

Whether it be watching a football match from the comfort of your sofa together or competing in a round of golf outdoors, who doesn’t appreciate some quality time with their dad? We stock the perfect cufflinks to add a touch of sporty style to your dad’s attire. We are certain he’ll be a fan.

There is no better way to acknowledge his favourite past time than with these sterling silver cufflinks [left] from Deakin & Francis. Alternatively, these football cufflinks [right] from Unique & Co are made from stainless steel and feature a spinning mechanism.



And of course – we have something for the avid Rugby supporters too. As the Official Timing Partner of Six Nations Rugby, Breitling introduced their limited edition Chronomat timepieces earlier this year. Here’s the Breitling Chronomat B01 Six Nations England watch:


For the ‘Tech Fanatic’ Dad

If he is into all the latest technological innovations, we can almost be certain that he’ll value a good smartwatch. Smartwatches are time-keeping devices that often have many capabilities to assist you with your day-to-day activities. Whether it’s to track social notifications on-the-go or monitor health metrics, it’ll keep your Dad organised whilst looking effortlessly stylish. Here are our popular favourites from Citizen:



For the ‘Always on the Go’ Dad:

Make sure that he is always prepared with a must-have travel companion from one of our trendy brands. Attractively designed and crafted from high-quality materials, this functional yet fashionable wallet from Montblanc [left] will help him stay organised on-the-go and look great while doing it! If you’re looking for something a little more compact and comfortable, this cardholder [right] from Wolf 1834 might be better suited.



For the ‘Rock n Roller’ Dad:

If your dad has always been a fan of the Rock genre, he will surely appreciate a musical legend like Jimi Hendrix. We stock this special edition Jimi Hendrix Montblanc Ballpoint Pen from their Great Characters collection. Inspired by his love for the electric guitar, this beautifully detailed writing instrument has been created to celebrate a true icon in the music industry.



For the ‘History Buff’ Dad:

If you often catch your dad knee-deep in a historical documentary, he is surely able to appreciate all things with a great story behind them. So, here we are presenting you with this beautiful pre-owned ring. This 9ct yellow gold ring [left] features a rotating enamelled masonic square and compass symbol which is believed to be the foundation of morality and wisdom.

There is no doubt that we will see the recent coronation of King Charles III making it to the history books. Earlier this year, a commemorative hallmark was released in celebration. We stock this classic sterling silver photo frame [right] from Francis Howard with said hallmark and believe it to be a thoughtful gift this Father’s Day. For extra brownie points, why not include a much-loved photo of a memory you’ve shared with your dad?


For the ‘Astronomical Adventurer’ Dad:

Whether a telescope is his most prized possession, or he has had a lifelong fascination with all elements of the universe, we have a great suggestion. Watches with the impressive moonphase feature allow the wearer to track the movements of the moon and reflects the current phase it is at in the sky. A perfect gift for a dad who is truly out of this world.

This watch [left] from Baume & Mercier’s Clifton collection features a moon-phase disc that replicates the beautiful deep blue starry night sky with a matching blue leather strap. Similarly, this watch from Longines’ Master collection features a vibrant dark blue dial set amongst a stainless steel case and bracelet.



For the ‘Fitness Fanatic’ Dad:

If he leads an athletic lifestyle, we can't think of a better watch brand than Garmin to assist him with his daily exercise routines. Their built-in sports apps offer preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming biking and more. Not only are their watches made from tough materials ensuring it is both shockproof and waterproof, they are also solar powered meaning you'll get many days of battery life when fully charged.

The bold green G-shock watch [left] from their 2100 series is solar powered and has a convenient Bluetooth function. This sleek watch [right] from one of their more recent collections offers a slimmer structure without compromising on its key shock-resistant feature. We are sure that these watches will accompany the biggest of daredevil dads on their thrill-seeking journeys.
