Mostly As | The Active Dad
Your Dad is never in one place longer than a few minutes – he’s constantly out and about, doing something sporty. A lover of all things active, he’s a keen cyclist, runner, swimmer – or maybe even a full-on triathlete, marathon runner or Iron Man competitor…
This Father’s Day, treat him to something from our Sports and Outdoors Shop – a pair of trainers from our New In edit, some sporty accessories like a new gym bag or a pair of sunglasses, or maybe some new designer active wear.
Mostly Bs | The Stylish Dad
Almost better dressed than you, your Dad is a keen follower of trends and likes to look good. He likes his labels and enjoys shopping for new key pieces each season – he’s a real fashionista!
Treat Dad to some wardrobe essentials this Father’s Day – choose some statement pieces from luxury designers in our Menswear Shop, including BOSS Green, GANT, Lacoste and Selected Homme. If he’s got enough clothes, opt for some classic accessories instead, like bags, sunglasses and watches.
Mostly Cs | The Amateur Chef Dad
You’ll never go hungry with your Dad around! Always in the kitchen trying out a new recipe he’s spotted online, your Dad loves to cook and experiment with flavours and ingredients.
If you’re looking for a really extravagant gift this Father’s Day, check out some of our top-of-the-range kitchen appliances. Whether he’s a coffee connoisseur or a brilliant baker, there’s something for every budding Gordon Ramsay!
Mostly Ds | The Chilled Dad
Often found with a newspaper in hand and a cup of tea by his side, your dad is funny, kind and an all-round good egg. Although he insists he doesn’t need anything for Father’s Day, treat him anyway!
