I’m sure it hasn’t escaped you that Father’s Day is fast approaching. Now I don’t know about you, but I always struggle with what Father’s Day gifts to get my dad. While my mum is nice and easy to buy for, my dad not so much. So if you’re in the same predicament as me, here’s my pick of some of the best gifts out there to spoil your dad this Father’s Day. It’s a long list, so you might want to grab a cup of tea!

Let’s start with the obvious choice- fragrance.


It is an obvious but it’s also a great choice for Father’s Day. And here are six great smelling fragrances to gift your dad:

dunhill London – ICON Elite £77 

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Dunhill Icon Elite

This is the third adaption of the dunhill ICON elite range and it’s gorgeous! It’s a modern, timeless, original masculine fragrance that not only looks lovely, but smells just as good too. It’s a real man’s scent, and one I’m sure many Fathers would love to receive on Father’s Day. Find it here

Issey Miyake Father’s Day Gift Set £43 

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme

I love this kind of gift set. They make great gifts, and this scent is another classic masculine fragrance that smells beautiful! It’s unique but elegant, powerful but delicate. It’s this balance that makes this scent a cult classic. And the gift set includes not just the fragrance, but the shower gel and wash bag as well. Find it here

Montblanc LEGEND £93 

Father's Day Gifts Montblanc
Father’s Day Gifts – Montblanc Legend

Just in time for Father’s Day, Montblanc have launched this huge 200ml version of their cult favourite LEGEND fragrance. I have to admit, this bottle really stands out as a powerful scent and the fragrance is yet another classic masculine scent. Find it here

John Varvatos Dark Rebel Rider £79 and John Varvatos Artisan Blu £79

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – John Varvatos

I love how these bottle designs capture the fragrances perfectly. The Dark Rebel Rider bottle is inspired by the iconic leather jacket and is daring in its mix of rich and woody notes. While the Artisan Blu bottle takes you to the Mediterranean Sea with its blend of cool, crisp citrus notes. Find Dark Rebel here and Artisan Blu here

John Varvatos Platinum Edition £79

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – John Varvatos Platinum Edition

This is the latest fragrance in the John Varvatos portfolio and it certainly has the snazziest bottle I’ve seen in a while. With a mix of powerful citrus notes and different herbs and spices, this is an unforgettable fragrance. Find it here


Moving onto skincare. I don’t know about you, but I’m sure most men would appreciate a little skincare treat for Father’s Day. I know mine certainly would! Here’s my pick of skincare treats for your dapper dad:

The Great British Grooming Co. 

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Great British Grooming Co.

This is such a great skincare brand at such an affordable price as well. The exfoliating face scrub (£5.99) is designed to bring some zing to the skin with its cooling and refreshing qualities. While the hydrating moisturiser (£6.99) leaves the skin looking and feeling firmer and healthier while delivering maximum hydration levels.

Anthony Head to Toe Survival Kit £30 

Father’s Day Gifts – Magnitone & Anthony

If you want to treat your dad to a few more skincare bits, then this kit from Anthony is fab. You get five grooming essentials to cleanse, condition and revitalise the face, hair and body. The set contains the Glycolic Facial Cleanser, Shave Cream, All Purpose Facial Moisturiser, Facial Scrub and Hair and Body Wash.

Crabtree & Evelyn Skincare 

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Crabtree & Evelyn Moroccan Myrrh
I have to admit, I had no idea that Crabtree and Evelyn did men’s skincare. But they do. And their luxury shaving products are perfect for any well groomed dad. Both the Moroccan Myrrh Shave Soap (£22) and Moroccan Myrrh Hair & Body Wash (£15) are uniquely infused with additional benefits for a superior cleanse and shave. They smell amazing and are guaranteed to leave your dad looking sharp and feeling revitalised. Find them here


Omorovicza Discovery Set £59

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Omorovicza
Although you may not be new to this brand, your dad probably is. Which is why the Omorovicza starter kit is a great gift to introduce your dad to this wonder skincare brand. The set includes five items which have been handpicked for their deep cleansing, brightening and energising effects, as well as working in perfect harmony with each other. Find it here


Electrical Items

Moving on from skincare, let’s talk about electrical beauty for men. Specifically shavers. Now I don’t know about you, but I’m sure my dad could benefit from a new shaver in his life. And these two look like fab gifts for Father’s Day:

Braun S3 Shave & Style £99

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Braun S3 Shave & Style
Now this is a seriously smart shaver. It’s a 3-in-1 solution for the man who wants to have the freedom of choice between a clean shave, and a precise beard style with one device. You simply change the head between clean shaven and precision beard trimming and there are five combs you can add depending on your preferred beard length. It also works wet or dry. Find it here


Gillette Proshield Lions Pack

Father's Day Gifts Gillette
Father’s Day Gifts – Gillette Proshield Razor Pack
If your dad prefers a razor to a shaver, then the new Gillette Proshield Lions pack might be a better choice. Gillette have partnered with the British and Irish Lions for this pack, which includes four blade cartridges and the Lions logo on the handle. The Gillette Proshield Lions packs are exclusive to Tesco.


Magnitone £85 

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Magnitone

Along with the much loved female version, Magnitone have bought out one especially engineered for men’s skin. Not only does it exfoliate 30% deeper (even under beards) to prevent ingrown hairs, but it also prepares their skin for a smooth shave. And you can even use this under the shower. Find it here



And finally, what would Father’s Day be without gifting your dad some item of clothing? I don’t know about you, but I think socks might be a little clichéd, which is why I think either of these items would make far better gift ideas!


Father’s Day Gifts – Rampley & Co Pocket Square £59 

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Rampley & Co Pocket Square
Now for the truly dapper dad, a pocket square is the perfect gift! And Rampley & Co have some really beautiful and luxurious ones. Plus their silk pocket squares can be monogrammed to make the present really personal. Find it here


CyberJammies PJs set £50

Father's Day Gifts
Father’s Day Gifts – Cyberjammies
I don’t know about you. But there’s nothing nicer than a new set of PJS. And these ones from Cyberjammies are perfect for your dad. Not only do they have some beautiful designs, but they come in a range of styles and their cotton/model fabric is supersoft meaning they are comfortable to wear too. Even better they are sold as a pyjama set as well as separately to give extra choice in top and pant styles as well as sizes. Find them here
