Dad’s always prove particularly tricky to buy for, and with Father’s Day coming up on Sunday 17thJune, the dreaded present hunt is fast-approaching. If your old man has had enough of the last-minute panic-bought boxes of chocolates or ‘#1 dad mugs’, then look no further than our handy guide for great father’s day gift inspiration!
Shaving gear is a fairly safe bet when it comes to Father’s Day; most men have facial hair they either want to shave off or groom into shape. Razors, shaving foam and beard oil are all items that get used up or need to be replaced fairly regularly, so choosing something from the shaving or personal grooming area can prove to be a simple and practical gift that will be much appreciated by the men in your life. If your dad is a fan of the traditional shave, then a fresh shaving brush and cream set, or a razor upgrade, can help to achieve a much more comfortable shave.
If your dad considers himself something of a cigar aficionado, then there can be no better gift than this impressive selection pack! Containing ten different cigars from the best growing regions in the world, this particular set also comes with the added bonus of gaining double reward points on Havana House! This pack is also a good shout if you’re not quite certain on which cigars your pop best prefers, as there is something for all tastes here! So what’s in the selection pack?
The Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico L40 Lancero
A limited production stogie with a 40 ring gauge Lancero size. It features Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers and Brazilian Mata Fina binder held together with a Connecticut River Valley Stalk Cut and Cured Habano wrapper.

Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto

Camacho Criollo Robusto Tubos
A sweet and spicey offering from the Camacho range presented in a tube.
The pack also comes with a handy Havana House cutter and EMS cigar matches.
Fans of booze will gladly accept a great bottle of whisky, and there is nothing quite like Scotch! There are plenty of reasonable bottles of single malt out there and even some fancy gift sets, perfect for a Father’s Day present. Our favourite is the Dalmore Cigar Malt Scotch, which can come with two stylish stag tumblers, featuring a pewter base and striking stag’s head decoration.
If the whisky shelf is already overflowing, or alcohol isn’t an option, then speciality coffee can be another drinks-based gift route to follow. Many people enjoy a brew in the morning, but sometimes our coffee habits can get stuck in a routine, where we are only sampling one blend day in, day out. Bring some new flavours into your families life by getting your dad a pack or two of speciality coffee, and explore some new tastes. Cubita Cuban coffee, for example, will be perfect for those who like a blend that brings hints of sweet smokiness and earthy tones.
A new bottle of aftershave is a great way to refresh a bathroom collection. For dad’s who are tricky to buy for, it’s hard to go wrong with this. The essential oils help keep skin in top condition, and the traditional scent of sandalwood leaves a fresh feeling. If your dad doesn’t shave regularly, then a similar gift, such as a cologne, can also be a great option.
