Yes, it’s that time of year again folks. That one day on the calendar where the old fella in your life is supposed to get a bit of recognition for all the time spent taxiing you and your mates around, keeping you fed and watered and just generally putting up with you all these years.
With the troubled times we’ve all been navigating, it’s the perfect excuse to put a smile on Dad’s face by buying him that perfect pressie. And that’s where we come in, offering a helping hand with a dose of inspiration, from high-tech jeans to moisturising creams, stylish watches to brewing gear, we’ve got you well and truly covered. Without any further ado, here’s our Fathers Day Gift Guide.
Spoke Storm Denim Jeans – £145
The sun may have had his hat on for a little while in Blighty, but given May was the wettest it’s been since 1967, we know a good soaking from the sky is never far away. And given the inclement climate, we have one sartorial solution that any Father worth his salt would be more than grateful to receive.
Spoke have been knocking out quality menswear for a while now, but it’s their new Storm Denim that have really caught our eye. These rinse wash, 2% stretch denim have a special nano-tech coated yarn that makes them water-repellent. The unique fabric also provides thermoregulation making them perfect for wearing out and about on bike rides. Added to that every pair is hand finished to order in over 200 sizes. What’s not to love?
Nordgreen Pioneer Watch – £217
Here at The MALESTROM we’ve always been suckers for a bit of classic Danish design, something the dapper lot at Nordgreen know plenty about. With the input of chief designer and Copenhagen native Jakob Wagner, they’ve created some of the most stylish timepieces on the market. We’re particularly loving the sleek curves of the award-winning Pioneer model.
And you don’t have to worry about whether you have something unique on your wrist, as Nordgreen offer an impressive array of straps options for versatility. With these beauties coming delivered in ethical packaging, your Dad can feel as good about waste reduction as he does about his newly upgraded style status.
Pinter – £85
Lockdown life has got us all very accustomed to supping a cold one from the comfort of our homes, so why not take things a little further and turn the four walls into a mini-brewery. This nifty device called the Pinter combines craft brewing with revolutionary technology.
Rather than all the fuss that used to go with home brew, Pinter makes it ridiculously easy to churn out 10 fresh pints of your favourite beer or cider. The ideal gift for Dad, so you can both sit down together and watch The Euros supping some quality craft booze while you moan about England losing.
PlAYMOBIL Back To The Future Collectables – £6.99 to £49.99
Great Scott! These amazing new PLAYMOBIL collectables will take any Back to the Future loving Dad on a nostalgic trip through time. You’re never too old to get excited about toys, especially when they’re as cool as these special sets that pay tribute to the beloved trilogy in PLAYMOBIL’s own inimitable style.
Re-enact the legendary Hoverboard chase from the second movie, mess around with Marty’s amazing pickup truck or set the time circuits to cool with the timeless DeLorean. Each set also comes with an exclusive postcard that has an awesome lenticular effect. Any fan of the films needs these sets in their life. In fact as George McFly would say, their your density.
VIVIR Tequila – £34.95
Why did the Mexican push his wife off a cliff? Tequila. Yes, you could inspire more terrible Dad jokes like this by delivering a bottle of VIVIR to you old man’s door on Father’s Day. Although we have to say this is no ordinary tequila. It could be the very best we here at The MALESTROM have ever had the pleasure of drinking. And we’ve tried a lot!
The award-winning smooth taste comes from VIVIR’s production technique that mixes 100% Weber Blue Agave with natural volcanic spring water, with the Reposado and Anejo being finished in American Oak ex-bourbon barrels. It all makes for a seriously inspired drop.
The Stubble & Co Roll Top – £105
We extolled the virtues of Stubble & Co in one of our Meet the Brands earlier this year. And after you get your hands on any of their rather fine bags you’ll understand why. One of the standouts from their range is this Roll Top waterproof backpack.
Ideal for the Dad who cycles and loves getting out into nature, this lightweight, durable bag is made from recycled plastic with a clean all-black look. And the sealed seams and water-resistant zips, means it can handle whatever the British weather throws at it. With all manner of pockets and compartments, including one for a 16” laptop, it’s practical, functional and built to last.
Make sure the coffee loving Dad in your life is full of beans by getting him one of these nifty starter kits from Paddy and Scott’s. Their Fueling Ambition box includes four bags of freshly-ground coffee that’s ethical, sustainable and tastes great. Added to that there’s a week’s supply of craft coffee brew bags (like tea bags, but coffee) in there to enjoy. Cool beans.
If you think Dad needs to up his skincare game then you might want to give him a helping hand with a gift from this top brand. Vitruvian Man use only the best natural organic ingredients in their products which are sourced from all over the world. So no harmful chemicals for Dad or the environment with these award-winning skincare lotions and potions. The Father’s Day Duo Bundle includes resurrection face moisturizer cream and anti-pollution cleanser & toner.
Sho Reusable Water Bottle – £13.99 to £36.99
We’ve long championed reusable drinking bottles over the environmentally damaging single-use ones. And for the old fella in need of some sustainable hydration, why not get him one of these SHO water bottles.
Available in a selection of sizes from 260ml to 1.7ltrs, these stylish 18/8 stainless steel, BPA Free beauties, come with a lifetime guarantee and are fully customisable, as you can have them engraved with a personal message for pops. The SHO bottles keep hot drinks piping hot for 12 hours and cool drinks ice cold for 12. Help Dad save money, the environment and be healthier in the process.
Daddy Rack Tennessee Whiskey – £35.95
If ever there was ever a drink made for Father’s Day it would have to be the aptly monikered Daddy Rack. This belter of a whiskey hails from Tennessee, and you can taste the American South with every delicious sip. The original recipe has flavours of honey, maple and roasted banana. It’s perfect mixed in an Old Fashioned or just served neat. Any Dad would be falling over themselves to get this as a gift, or at least they will be after a few glasses.
