FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE:

FOR THE MEN IN YOUR LIFE

Paragraph

WORDS: MARNI ROSE MCFALL + HANNAH DUNN

Fatherhood comes in all shapes and sizes, which is why we’re taking a moment to celebrate all the men who feature in our lives. Whether you’re spoiling him with something special by way of a Gucci bag, stepping things up with a pair of fresh Asics sneakers or giving your pops a long overdue pamper with Creed, these are the gifts to treat him to this Father’s Day.

Here’s to the characters that raised us right. This June, it’s all about you. And we’re celebrating the FLANNELS way.

THE STAPLE SNEAKER

What dad doesn’t love to open up a pair of box fresh trainers come Father’s Day? Exactly. Axel Arigato’s Clean 90 were made for those with classic tastes, who like a smarter sneaker in their rotation, while Lacoste’s L003 2K24 Trainers play into our current obsession with sports luxe, preppy sneakers. For the ultimate dad sneaker, Asics has long been ruling the game with their Gel Kayano 14 Trainers in multiple colourways. And if your dad is a runner, On Running’s Cloud 5 trainers will make the ultimate companion for pounding the pavements

1. THE PERFECT BAG

There are a lot of ways to say I love you, but we recommend doing it with a designer handbag. Gucci’s Savoy Medium Duffle Bag is the ideal size for everything from gym trips mid-week to nights away at the weekend. If his work bag is looking a little tired, Valentino Garavani’s Toile Iconographe Shopping Bag in wool makes for a fitting summer tote thanks to its natural hue. Or, if black is more his thing, Bottega Veneta’s Medium Intrecciato Duffle features a black body and pops of red and green on the handles, straps and ends of the bag. Prefers a backpack? Look to Moncler Grenoble whose Monclerg Backpack would look as at home in the city as the countryside. Papa’s got a brand new bag.

FRAGRANCES STACKED ON TOP OF EACH OTHER

1. THE SIGNATURE SCENT

A bottle of something special will always make a good gift. Case in point? Creed’s Aventus Eau de Parfum. Fresh, fruity and woody, it’s a special fragrance that’s bound to make them feel spoilt come June 16th. Tom Ford’s Ombre Leather is a long-lasting, leathery scent that’s perfect for evenings out, while Montblanc’s Legend Blue fragrance, complete with notes of spearmint, cedarwood and Ambroxan, will please even the most dapper of dads.

BEAUTY PRODUCTS STACKED ON TOP OF EACH OTHER AND STANDING SIDE BY SIDE

2. THE BEAUTY GIFT

The key to all good rest and relaxation? Luxe beauty treats. For his day-to-day, a next-level shaving cream is a must-have and the Terre D’Hermès After-Shave Balm is exactly that. Running low on his lotions and potions? Opt for Le Labo’s Santal 33 Body Oil or Acqua di Parma’s Blue Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi Hand and Body Lotion. Or if his face needs a helping hand, Clinique For Men’s Moisturising Lotion is a lightweight formula that delivers all-day moisture alongside skin-strengthening ingredients

GUCCI JORDAAN LOAFERS

1. THE SPECIAL SHOES

Looking to level up this Father’s Day? Do it with some fresh footwear. Gucci’s Jordaan Loafers are a cult classic for a reason. Designed with a rounded toe, low block heel and the brand’s signature horsebit, they’re a timeless buy that he’ll love for a lifetime. Ferragamo has offered a slight spin on the traditional loafer with an iteration in a subtle, dark blue. Hot on the heels of the loafer to claim the spot of the summer’s biggest footwear trend is the driving shoe. Prada delivered theirs in beige and navy suede, while Valentino Garavani’s come in buttery soft leather in shades of beige, black and camel.

 LACOSTE TRAINER, WATCH, MONTBLANC WALLET AND HATTON LABS TENNIS BRACELET

3. THE LUXE ACCESORY

Giving the things you’d love for yourself is a sure-fire way of nailing gifting. Gucci’s J G-Timeless watch falls into that category. In a slick mix of black and silver, complete with a sleek metal strap, it’s an outfit-making must-have. While Hatton Labs’ iconic Hatton Tennis Bracelet will add a point of interest to any look. Help him keep his money close to hand with Montblanc’s Sartorial 6cc Leather Wallet. Ideal for when you next need taxi money.

COCKTAIL SHAKER, GLASS TUMBLERS, ICE BUCKET, PLAYING CARDS AND JAMES BOND COFFEE TABLE BOOK

1. THE HOME BUY

Your dad something of a host? Help him keep his guests entertained (and well hydrated) with the best home gifts for Father’s Day. Stock up the bar with Ralph Lauren Home’s Wyatt Cocktail Shaker and Ice Bucket and Tom Dixon’s Whiskey Glasses. And when the drinks run out look to L’Objet’s Haas Jumbo Playing Cards - a thing of beauty, each featuring a fantastical, hand-illustrated design – and Assouline’s collection of must-have books to amuse.
