Are you like me and always find Father’s Day a tough one to choose a gift for? I never seem to know what to get for my dad, and he is frankly no help in that department when I ask him. And yet he totally deserves something lovely, for always being there, for always caring and for always being that listening ear that doesn’t judge but just nods along.
Similarly, my wonderful husband and baby daddy Peter is a gem, totally one in a million and someone I just love to spoil.
So, with both of those special people in mind, I have some ideas for presents for those special dads in your life.
Brita fill&go Active Water Bottle XL
If your dad is active and sporty, or likes to take his own bottled water to work, or maybe he is just ecologically sound and wants to cut down on his plastic usage, then the Brita fill & go active water bottle could be a gift that is much appreciated.
It features the BRITA MicroDisc and ActivSelect® technology, a durable filter that reduces chlorine content and taste impairing substances in regular tap water. Built in a classic active shape, the Brita fill&go Active Water bottle allows for a litre of great-tasting water on-the-go.
If like me you live in an area where your tap water leaves a lot to be desired, this is a great gift option.
Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Sense Energize Razor
It has to be said that men spend a lot of money on saving products, which could be why my father-in-law often asks for them as gifts.
Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Sense Energize Razor is one of the newest products from the Wilkinson Sword range. It is unique and innovative in that it uses shock-absorb technology which auto-adjusts the amount of pressure it is putting on your face. This helps to give you the ultimate customised shave, and hopefully avoids those little nicks to the face that ordinary razors are notorious for.
The RRP for this product is £12, but if you are quick this weekend, Boots are selling it for just £6 this weekend (take a look here.)
VonShef 9pc Matte Black Parisian Cocktail Set From Domu
Sometimes parents can surprise you. I remember the shock I had when my dad announced he had once been a barmen when I was a baby and could still mix a mean cocktail (it was a Snowball but still…). If your dad loves to mix cocktails, or maybe has his own bar in his man cave, then this sleek and stylish Parisian cocktail set fromVonShef, available at Domu might be his ideal gift.
This is a beautifully packaged gift for the stylish man in your life. The 550ml capacity Parisian cocktail shaker is made from premium stainless steel with a contemporary matte black finish. The set comes with complementary matte black-coloured accessories included: stainless steel muddler, 9″stainless steel twisted double-ended bar spoon/ fork, stainless steel Hawthorne strainer and double ended stainless steel 25ml/50ml shot measuring jigger
Dad can have fun mixing his own cocktails, or can try out some of the recipes that come in the cocktail book that accompanies the set.
The Parisian Field Guide to Men’s Style by Ines de la Fressange
Legendary French model and Chanel muse Ines de la Fressange is turning her well trained fashion eye to men’s fashion this year. Following on from her best seller Parisian Chic, and teaming with fashion journalist Sophie Gachet , Ines has produced ‘The Parisian Field Guide to Men’s Style’, which is described as a “fun and practical sartorial guide” that looks at all different facets of male style and also gives away some of Ines’s key addresses for building up that stylish wardrobe.
This book is a lovely gift idea for the dad who is a picture of sartorial elegance and takes his style and wardrobe very seriously. Alternately, it might work for a dad who needs a little help in that department.

Berghaus has a wide range of t-shirts that are perfect for those who love outdoor living, particularly in the range available from Berghaus. My top pick ( a sort of top of the tops I suppose) is Berghaus T-shirt which has a really stylish design on both the front and back, and is once again in top quality 100% cotton that makes it a perfect choice for those days when you just want to chill in comfort.This t-shirt has a relaxed feel, so it would look great worn casually with jeans, or with shorts on a warmer day, and with the fabulous Berghaus quality, you just know this will wash and wash and retain the colour and quality.
