June 21st is that special day of the year we get to celebrate the fathers in our lives. In recognition of all those special men out there, we have compiled a list of the absolute best gifts that they may actually want. So this year, ditch the cheap cards and socks and check out these show-stopping father’s day presents:
Encourage his inner mixologist with The Cocktail Delivery Company. Simply select his favourites from a list of hand-crafted fresh cocktails (everything from Espresso Martinis to Plum & Tonics) and wait for them to be delivered. Then, simply put in a cocktail shaker with ice and they are ready to serve – garnishes and all. It’s like gifting him his very own bartender for the day – what a dream.
The Smooth Operator
If there was ever a skincare brand that epitomised luxury it has to be the newly launched Saunders & Long. The result of a firecracker partnership between film producer Nick Sanders and celebrity hairstylist Jonathan Long it counts on the category-defining chemistry of Stephen Musumeci (the man that created the Kiehl’s and Bumble & Bumble and Francois Robert ranges) and the cool factor of model Johannes Huebl and photographer Greg Williams … It is guaranteed to make him look (and smell) the part.
The Cinema Nut
Indulge the cinephile dad in your life with access to the best streaming service for independent and foreigh language films; Curzon Home Cinema. Pre-rent films like the Oscar-winning ‘Parasite’ and ‘The Assistant’ or documentaries like the Oscar-nominated ‘Honey Land’ for him and watch him delight in the world’s best cinema all from the comfort of his own home.
The Tequila Lover
Vivir Tequila is possibly the world’s best 100% Agave tequila. Loved by bartenders and tastemakers like Master Of Malt and GQ alike this tequila is guaranteed to be a huge hit. Available in ‘Reposado’, ‘Blanco’ or ‘Anejo’ varieties, there’s one for each type of palate. His taste buds will thank you for it!
The Gentleman Gamer
Watch him one-up his friends with a skilled game of poker… or at the very least help him look stylish as he loses. The Grosvenor Poker Set from Smythson is the ultimate in card-playing luxury complete with printed calf leather, 300 chips, five dice and two packs of exclusive playing cards, all made in Italy. Truly the only way to go ‘all in’.

The Dog Lover
Tractive is the perfect dad-gadget; a GPS tracker for his dog or cat. By attaching the small locator on his canine or feline he can track their exact location directly on their smartphone or browser and keep tabs on their four-legged buddy. Indeed, sometimes the best gift is the one they can give to their best friend.
What better way to celebrate his day than with bubbles?

The pack features ten amazing tricks that he can learn easily and perform anywhere; from reading minds to making things disappear.
