Finding a present that fits your father’s personality whilst also leaving a lasting impression can be tough. Increasingly, people are opting to purchase interesting gift experiences over traditional products. Not only are experiences more personal, but they will also stick longer in memory.
With our guide to the best Father’s Day gifts, finding the perfect present for this Father’s Day is made easy! We run through our top Father’s Day gift ideas for all budgets.
For The Dad With Good Taste
So, your dad has great taste in drinks? A whisky tasting experience at the Capital Bar in London might just make his Father’s Day. Capital Bar, located in the Capital Hotel, is sophisticated yet comfortable and takes pride in promoting Scotch whisky’s heritage.
At the Capital Bar, your dad will taste three Scotch whiskies, paired with distinct British and French cheeses. An elite whisky sommelier will lead your experience, on hand to make this an event to remember. After an insightful but relaxed discussion of the whiskies and the cheeses they are paired with, your whisky tutor will allow you to enjoy the flavours at your own leisure.
For The Father Who Always Looks His Best
For the dapper dad, gift a haircut and traditional wet shave at Gentlemen’s Tonic!
Gentlemen’s Tonic in Mayfair is a unique retreat for the modern man, and provides an array of grooming and spa treatment options. Your dad will be treated to a traditional barbershop experience, with an added modern touch. Decorated in an understated masculine style, the salon is set with a blend of old and new: wood, leather and marble are mixed with high-tech music consoles and LCD screens for personal use in each haircut station and treatment room.
For The Sport Lover
Cricket fans will love the Lord’s Cricket Grounds. How about setting dad up with a private tour? This exclusive tour takes in some of the world of cricket’s most famous sights, including the Ashes urn, the Pavilion long room, as well as the players’ dressing rooms and honours boards. He’ll also get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hone his cricket skills under the guidance of former England captain, Michael Vaughan.
I bet you didn’t know that just outside of London, there are some wonderful fly fishing areas. Whether dad is a beginner or a pro, he will enjoy a day in the great outdoors and attend a private session with Bob Sherwood at Halstead and Bolton Fly Fishing School.
For Pops Who Loves a Pint
When a pint of Guinness doesn’t quite suffice, this is the Father’s Day gift you’re after. Visit the home of “the black stuff”, complete with a luxury 5-star hotel stay and dinner at renowned Irish restaurant l’Ecrivain.
Fights from the UK might average at a little over an hour, but Dublin has a lot more to offer than just convenience. With some of the friendliest people in Europe, some of the best food in Europe, and of course some of the best beer in Europe, a trip across the Irish Sea makes for a top-class short break; and a never-forgotten Fathers Day present.
This break includes two tickets to the Guinness Storehouse, the home of one of the most famous beers on the planet. The Storehouse, formerly a fermentation plant, is laid out over seven floors. On your way to the top floor, take a self-guided tour of the numerous exhibits, which explore every aspect of Guinness’ fascinating history. When reaching the top, sip on a pint of freshly poured Guinness, with an incredible 360-degree panoramic view over the city where it was created. Perfect.
For the Artistic Father
Art lovers will be thrilled to explore and view the art collection at the Queen’s Gallery in Buckingham Palace. Combined with afternoon tea at the luxurious Capital Hotel, this is the perfect cultural afternoon.
