Father’s Day can prove to be an especially hard time of year, if you find yourself on the giving end of the spectrum. We can all agree that when it comes to our Fathers, they aren’t too vocal about what they want – yet you’re still obligated to find a gift. The thought of giving another pair of socks or soap pack is too cringe worthy to describe, and chocolate seems like a half-hearted attempt.
Fear not if you find yourself leaving it to the last minute (once again), we’ve curated a selection of gifts that will be sure to impress the dad who has everything. We realise that each man has their own taste, so to keep it simple we’re going to play to some old stereotypes.
The Sophisticated Man
If you’re faced with someone who not only has everything, but has excellent personal taste we’ve got you covered. In any instance quality should be the main priority, and if you’re unsure of what they like, keep it simple and classic. Fresh fragrances, anything leather and coffee is an easy win.
The Tech Man
The tech man could arguably be the easiest person to buy for. Dependent on how far your budget stretches, the best method of attack comes down to researching the newest and best releases, and then cater towards the recipient. For example, if he’s into sports, check out a smart watch.
The Sports Man
Another category with endless options, this could apply to the sports fanatic or the gym junkie of the family, but to avoid another round of team memorabilia or dare we say it, a deodorant pack, look to the classics. Thinking functional and practical is the best way to approach the sporty guy, so have a look at the likes of Nike and The North Face for fail-safe ideas.
The Foodie Man
It’s gospel that everyone secretly loves kitchenware as gifts and if you have a foodie to buy for this Father’s Day then look to quality cookware or an easy way out. To make it personal, take note of anything missing in the kitchen and fill it with quality pieces.
The Home-Barista Man
We all know that one man that not only enjoys entertaining, but appreciates good alcohol. Whether they already have their own stocked liquor cabinet or are looking to collect, alcohol is a gift that everyone likes to receive, and if you can’t make it on the day, there a plenty of places that can deliver for you. Alternatively, if you’re not sure what they like, quality crystal or barista accessories is the way to go.
The Travel Man
If you have a Father who loves to explore and travel, then an experience gift may be the way to go. Whether they are into extreme sports, exploring or discovering new food, your nearest city will have something for all tastes.
