It’s that time of the year to endlessly scour the internet to find that special something to put a smile on your dads face. Let’s be honest, he’s probably tired of receiving the same old crate of beer every year (or maybe not). Luckily for you, HUNGER have put together a list of the most quintessential gifts to make this years Fathers Day one to remember.
If one stereotype is true, it’s that dads love fancy gadgets, and it doesn’t get better than a SodaStream. The fizzy water maker now comes in a brand new Art machine, which features a slim silhouette, stainless steel trim and a unique carbonation lever. (RRP £139.99)
For dads who are super conscious of their dental health, the Cordless Advanced Waterpik is certainly one big step up from their everyday flossing tape. It features a magnetic 4-hour rapid charging system, an ulta quiet operation, waterproof design, global voltage — oh, and it looks pretty slick in the bathroom to boot. Speaking about its credentials, the Waterpik promises to remove up to 99% of plaque from treated areas and is 50% more effective for improving gum health vs. string floss. Sounds pretty impressive to us! (RRP £94.99)
It may be an outworn trope, but fathers love whisky. Our pick for the dads who love a tipple is the 12-year-old Fettercairn, which is perfect for inquisitive and open-minded whisky drinkers. Matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels for 12 years, this whisky is chock full of tropical flavours, as well as the brand’s trademark weightiness and soft ginger spice. Settle down with dad, and enjoy your Fettercairn straight, before sipping it with a splash of cold water, which will heighten its notes and aromas. (RRP £46)
If you’re looking more on the luxe side, then take a gander at Chanel’s latest fragrance offering: Bleu De Chanel Eau De Parfum. The intensely woody aromatic fragrance, opens with freshness and then evolves into a mature, masculine scene marked by New Caledonian Sandalwood. Up the ante by throwing in the Bleu De Chanel 2-in-1 Moisturiser for Face and Beard, which leaves the skin moisturised even under the beard, and ensures that facial hair is smooth and soft. (Bleu De Chanel Eau De Parfum RRP £103 / Bleu De Chanel 2-in-1 Moisturiser For Face and Beard RRP £42).
For skincare-loving dads who don’t shy away from a bit of indulgence, you can’t go wrong with the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask. The original flexible LED mask, boasts some serious claims. It’s clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by 35% in just four weeks, and 95% of users said that their skin tone, texture, firmness and tightness were improved. Ageing, no more! (RRP £294)
A polaroid camera is a winning pic if you want to him ’em with nostalgia. We love the Instax Mini 40, which combines a classic design with fresh, high-quality Instax mini film. It also has a slew of modern features, including a built-in selfie lens, auto shutter speed and auto brightness so dads can capture the moments that matter most. (RRP £89.99)
It’s hard to buy yourself the stuff you know will really make a difference in the kitchen, like a set of proper, quality chopping boards. For foodie dads, we suggest the Joseph Joseph Folio 4-piece Chopping Board Set. These four chopping boards are colour-coded for ease and come in a trendy silver case. A perfect addition to any father’s countertop! (RRP £60)
As one wise sage once said, there’s no better gift than that of experience. If you’re looking to treat your dad to something memorable, just peruse through Red Letter Days which has a range of experiences for every kind of father out there — from the daredevil to the petrol heads. We have our eyes on the 6 Mile Blue Skies Helicopter Tour with Bubbly for Two as well as the Three Course Dinner with Glass of Prosecco at Gaucho for Two. (Experiences from RRP £69)
