Gift Ideas For The Dad Who Wants Nothing For Father’s Day
“What should I buy you for Father’s Day?” “Nothing, I don’t need anything.” We’ve been there, and as much as we love our father figures, they’re some of the hardest people to gift for. What do you buy a man with a well-stocked wardrobe and too many grooming gadgets to count?
Well, don’t reach for the novelty gifts or impersonal vouchers just yet. We’ve whittled your gifting options to five practical products which are definitely on your father’s wishlist… or should be!
1. Montblanc Nightflight Wallet
Over the years, you’ve probably put a couple of dents in your father’s wallet, so how about replacing it? You might think that a wallet doesn’t make for a particularly exciting gift, but Montblanc’s nightflight wallet offers something a bit different. Not only is this wallet crafted from fine rib nylon fabric and soft leather, which is scratchproof, durable and stain resistant, but it is also conveniently equipped with 12 credit card slots, two bank note slots and two additional pockets.
Montblanc’s Nightflight wallet is available in blue at our HEBE outlet on Level 0, which is open every day from 9am to 7pm.
2. Samsonite Proxis Spinner Luggage
Strong and resilient, just like our dads, the hard-case Proxis luggage developed by Samsonite is one which no dad-on-the-move can resist. With several nifty features, including a built-in TSA lock, an integrated retractable ID tag and a personalisable case, the four-wheel spinner is sure to take the weight off his travel experience. This model is also covered by a 10-year global warranty under Samsonite’s WeCare service plan, which you can get more information about at our Samsonite outlet.
You can find the Proxis Spinner in Matt Graphite at our Samsonite outlet on Level 0, which is open every day from 9am to 7pm.
3. Fuzzy Duck Grooming Set
Level up your father figure’s grooming routine with this Hemp & Bergamot trio of goodies by Baylis & Harding: a 240ml hair and body wash, a 240ml aftershave balm and a soap bar. Bursting with the rich yet warm notes of its titular ingredients, complemented by the scent of sandalwood, grapefruit and ginger, this gift set will surely have your dad feeling fresh, rejuvenated, and ready to face the day.
The Fuzzy Duck trio is just one of the Baylis & Harding gift sets available at our WHSmith outlet on Level 0, which is open every day from 8am to 10pm.
4. A Good Bottle of Wine (or two)
Is your father’s wine stash depleting? Then it’s time to restock! You can find a variety of powerful and expressive wines at the newly opened Butlers area inside the WHSmith outlet on Level 0, including the locally-produced Fenici red wine and the Château Cap de Fer by Jean Guillot winery in Bordeaux. You can also find a selection of glassware at the outlet, making it easier to pair your wines with a fresh set of elegant wine glasses.
5. A Greeting Card
The most priceless gift you could give your dad this Father’s Day might actually cost the least money. Celebrate your father with a unique greeting card together with a thoughtfully penned message to thank him for his time, patience, and love over the years. And if being touchy-feely isn’t your thing, make him laugh with a funny card and a few witty words!
You can find a wide selection of greeting cards at our WHSmith outlet inside the Welcomers’ Hall or Agenda Bookshop inside our Check-In Hall.
