Even though it comes around every year, buying a Father’s Day gift is never an easy task. How do you go about picking a present that perfectly conveys your love and gratitude to the man who raised you? Such a gift probably doesn’t exist, so we’ll settle for something he’ll just like a lot. We’ve hand-picked 10 thoughtful presents that we hope will do just that.

The Wallet

A wallet falls under the umbrella of “classic” gifts – it’s a practical present, sure, but it also shows you’ve noticed their current one is looking a little tired around the edges. So it ticks the thoughtful box, too. This one has been crafted in Italy from premium grained leather and has plenty of card slots inside. The rich green colour is a departure from more traditional black or brown, but no less sophisticated.

The Fragrance

The scent someone chooses to wear is intensely personal, ergo, it’s an intensely personal sort of gift. That also means it’s a present you’ll want to put a bit of thought into. Don’t tell dad, but 19-69 is one of those brands that pretty much does all the deep thinking for you. The perfume specialist is an expert storyteller with each scent weaving a rich, intoxicating yarn. This one is inspired by Helmut Newton’s infamous Le Smoking picture - it’ll be a hit with fans of clean, fresh fragrances.

The Socks

If you’re anything like the majority, you likely regarded socks as an unworthy present in your younger years. But part of growing up is realising just how great a gift they truly are. Where would we be, after all, without decent socks? This pair is knitted from comfy cotton-blend in Italy and has a discreet bunny pattern all over – a nod to Paul’s good luck charm.

The Cufflinks

Much like jewellery, typically cufflinks aren’t something you’re likely to spoil yourself with. It follows, then, that they fall into the category of gift that tends to hold sentimental value. If your old man is a football fan, these silver ones are sure to go down a treat, but there’s also plenty of other idiosyncratic designs at Paul Smith that we’d wager he’ll take a shine to, including bicycle ones, a pencil pair and even matchsticks.
