To help you find the right Father’s Day gift I’ve compiled a list of my top picks for gift ideas. Ranging from state-of-the-art electronics to collectable items and biodegradable sneakers, this is the year to spoil your dad rotten with a gift that truly matters.
A collector connoisseur or perhaps just a hobbyist of comics? If your dad fits into either of these categories, then I think I may have found just the gift…
The Folio Society’s Marvel: The Silver Age 1960-1970 is every comic lover’s dream! Hand-selected by former Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas, this collectable set features original artworks by Paolo Rivera and Ian Jepson. Plus, this collection includes over 30 iconic characters that changed this genre forever: from Thor and Spider-Man to Iron Man and the X-Men, each one of these characters formed in Sixties America can be found within this collection.

New, and to some extent, unfamiliar ways of working have recently swept the nation since we officially went into lockdown on March 23rd. Luckily though, remote working has been made possible with the help of brands such as Posturite. Opløft, a portable sit-stand desk, has an impressive cross structure frame which allows you to extend the height or position making it possible to carry between workstations or neatly store away. A more ‘ergonomic’ approach to a Father’s Day gift.
Price: £309.54 | Available from www.posturite.co.uk
Inspired by five generations of expert leather craftsmen and women, Billy Ruffian’s ‘Socks in a Box’ may be the ideal gift for your dad this Father’s Day. These quirky socks come as three pairs and the option to choose which sock designs you want in your box.

If your Dad is into his music (as much as I am), these newly launched noise-cancelling wireless headphones by Samsung are a must-have! With a function to filter out ambient noise at the touch of a button, the AKG N700 NCM2 leatherette ear-cushioned headphones would make a great gift for any music lover.

“A gentleman’s choice of timepiece says as much about him as does his Saville Row suit.” – Ian Fleming
Are you looking to upgrade your dad’s timepiece collection? Or perhaps, you have been overhearing your dad talk about wanting a new watch for a while now? Well, The Camden Watch Company offers a superb selection of timepieces. My personal favourite is No.27 GMT in Rose Gold and Black. This design pays homage to the rich maritime history of Greenwich and Great Britain, with the dial featuring a high gloss finish reminiscent of the enamel dials found on old maritime clocks.
