All too often, the third Sunday of June comes and goes with little to no recognition. Kids and adults alike are caught unaware, only just recovered from Mother’s Day and totally unprepared to show their appreciation for another parent. Not this year, however, not for you. You’ll be geared up with unique gifts for dad that serve as luxurious Father’s Day gifts he’ll appreciate for years to come – even if he already has everything.
If your dad is the type to know his soft cotton from his cashmere, consider a luxurious clothing-related present that he’ll enjoy. Don’t be disheartened if his wardrobe is full, however. There are a lot of clothing-related gifts for the fashionable father that don’t have to be sartorial.
A leather glasses case monogrammed with his initials is something he can use every day. Equally, you could go for a watch holder so he can keep his collection on display, or a box made from luxury materials like leather, suede, and silver for him to store tie clips, cufflinks, and all things fashion. Men’s antique jewellery is also an option to explore if he could use an accessory or two.
A man’s home is his castle, and sometimes the castle could use a little spruce up. Show him this Father’s Day that you appreciate all he’s done for you by adding something special to his home. For luxurious Father’s Day gifts, keep to the luxury materials like leathers, velvets, silks, and suedes.
Vases are a good way to combine gifts, giving him a stunning bouquet as well as something that will last a little longer. Spruce up the dining room table with a pair of silver candlesticks for a regal aesthetic worthy of your dad’s taste. If he has a home office, consider something like a vintage silver smoking compendium. Whether used for its original purpose or not, it’s an excellent addition.
Is your dad a budding chef? Maybe he’s always been gifted in the culinary arts. In either case, you can find something special for his kitchen that he’ll treasure this Father’s Day. Luxury brands like Le Creuset, Georg Jensen, and Miele are all good directions to explore when looking for unique gifts for dad this year.
A set of pots and pans couldn’t go amiss for the ‘professional’ chef. Equally, you could opt for barware if your dad is a better cocktail-maker than he is a cook. A glass decanter turns any space into a refined zone of luxury, and you can get extra points for filling it with his favourite brand of whiskey.
Do you know someone who’s about to be a first-time father? If he has a while before the baby arrives, get him something luxurious he can enjoy before the stress of a new baby hits. A silver tankard is one way to invite him to let loose, as well as being something he can treasure as a memento long after.
If his baby is here and it’s his very first Father’s Day, consider a silver photo frame with a picture of his bundle of joy inside. Silver is a traditional gift for new-borns, and an adorable picture of the baby inside a delicate silver frame will definitely be treasured long after Father’s Day is over.
Believe it or not, there is actually a National Grandparent’s Day on first Sunday in October. If – like most people – you don’t celebrate NGD, feel free to use Father’s Day to show some love to the granddad in your life. A unique luxury Father’s Day gift for the granddad you love can be found in the form of luxuries for entertaining.
Does everybody congregate at Grandad’s house for special occasions or even just Sunday lunch? If so, something like napkin rings can be a luxurious gift he can make use of often. Equally, a silver canteen of cutlery can show him that he’s the real treasure of the family.
Father’s Day is an often-missed opportunity for showing the father figure in your life that you appreciate them. Don’t let it get away from you this year; treat that special man to something unique and personal that you know he’ll appreciate.
