Gift Guide: Cool Dad

Written by: Zanita Whittington

CooldadDad’s are notoriously difficult to buy presents for – so often they end up with the classic bottle of whisky or gift card. I’m pretty sure my Dad would be happy with a bag of candy with a bow around it but I think I’ll try a little harder…

The secret lies in buying him those presents he wouldn’t usually buy for himself or those that he never knew he wanted…

Starting with,

Taschen: Luxury Toys for Men – maybe you can’t buy him an Aston Martin, but here he can drool over pics of one! A dreamers guide.

Socks: Paul Smith Socks – My Dad would never spend so much on socks, but after wearing a pair of these he’ll wonder why he hasn’t given his toes more love before.

Phaidon: Marlon Brando, Anatomy of an Actor. A profile on an great icon of yesteryear – if he’s not a fan he’ll be after this. Great to give alongside a copy of the Godfather on DVD.

Wooden Alarm Clock. Your dad can wake each day just that little bit more stylishly with this puppy.

Beddit Sleep Monitor. This is one of those gifts he never knew he needed – the sensor is placed under the sheets and records sleep quality and duration, breathing, heart rate, and snoring. Tracks your sleep so measures can be placed to improve it! Clever.

Gucci Card Wallet: Very stylish and a total safe bet.

Hope this helps 🙂
