Father's Day 2021: The Ultimate Luxury Gift Guide for Every Type of Dad
It's that time of year again: Father's Day is right around the corner and, like you, we've been racking our brains to come up with an appropriate gift to show our appreciation for our dads. What could they possibly need, or, better yet, want? Sure, you can always give them another No #1 Dad mug, but why not make it really special this year with a thoughtful present? To make things easier for you (and ourselves) we've come up with an all-in-one gift guide for every possible type of dad that you will be buying a gift for this year. From the foodie dad to the fur dad, these are Tatler’s top picks for every kind of father you will come across.
The Dapper Dad
Get your dad to up his style game with an exclusive Louis Vuitton Vertical Soft Trunk, or add to his cufflink collection with these elegant Buccellati sterling silver cufflinks. For casual wear, Gucci's got your dad covered (literally) with a cashmere cardigan with its signature GG logo and switch up his sandal style with these super cool Toogood x Birkenstock leather slides.

The Sporty Dad
Tee time has never been cooler with an Agresti chess set for your golf fanatic dad, but why be cool when you can turn up the heat poolside with Hermès’ sports motif-laden beach towel? For the dad who loves his ping pong and his art, The Art of Ping Pong's wall-mountable ping pong table does double duty; and don't forget to hydrate—drink up from the chicest water bottle ever, Prada, of course.

The Drink-Loving Dad
Cheeky dads will enjoy the punny ceramic work of Anissa Kermiche, whose black ceramic ‘Jugs’ jug will surely be a talking point at the dinner table. For the more serious-minded, L'Atelier du Vin Oeno Box’s wine set will provide the oenophile with everything they need for a wine-tasting at home. And keep your dad's outlook on life on the bright side with the Talisker 25 set—a set of Talisker 25 and a special release 28-year-old from a rare closed distillery, Pittyvaich—or The School of Life's witty Optimist/Pessimist glass set.

The Foodie Dad
If your dad fancies a go in the kitchen, or just prefers to savour what comes out of it, tantalise his tastebuds with these exquisite delights. Sourced from the most distinguished producers around the world, give dad a taste of liquid gold with Burren Balsamic's white balsamic infused with 24kt gold, or Leonardi Balsamic 50-year-old Riserva Argento balsamic vinegar. In Singapore, treat pops with Odette's Krital caviar or a generous slathering of Burnt Ends' mouthwatering beef marmalade.

The Fur Dad
Your fur dad's pooch will win pride of place at the dog park with his super-fashionable Marine Serre harness, and you can get Tiffany & Co's humorous bone china treat jar to store his (secretly favourite) child's snacks. Nap time has never been more regal than with Lord Lou's velvet dog bed, or simply remind your cat dad of his wild side with this Versace ceramic leopard.

The Plant Dad
We all know—or have—that one dad who's very into horticulture. This year, bring the outdoors in, with plant-themed decors items such as Marc Jacobs's brilliant flower rug, or Bordallo Pinheiro's cabbage-inspired plates. The Laetitia Jacquetton vessel is great for displaying the fruits of one's garden, and true gardening stalwarts will love Petersham Nurseries] copper gardening tool set.

Bring back the thrill of the Space Race with MB&F's rocket-shaped table clock, or make dad feel like the king he is with Cartier's extravagant Dragon Décor pen. Closer to home, dad deserves only the best—pamper him with Frette bedsheets, which has been the choice of royalty for centuries, or make him the most suave man in the house with Dior's newly launched Homewear Kit.
