Editor’s picks: 5 luxury items that make perfect Father’s Day gifts

June 13, 2018

Summer is here and Father’s Day is just around the corner!

Ahead of the big celebration this weekend, we pulled together a list of our favourite items that would make a perfect gift for Dad, no matter his personal likes and preferences. Take a look at these ideas; we know it will inspire your shopping choices.

1. The Coffee Gift—Nespresso’s Ispirazione Shakeratoand Ispirazione Salentina

As in previous years, Nespresso has released its summer collection and we just can’t get enough of it! The newest on-ice capsules are inspired by the tastes of Italy. They are available for both Original and Vertuo systems, so you can experiment with a versatile range of coffee creations.

Ispirazione Shakerato (have we mentioned that we love these names?) is a full-bodied, smooth iced coffee with cocoa aromas and long-lasting roasted notes. Ispirazione Salentina, on the other hand, is a bold option that features a smooth and round texture, revealing nutty aromas and roasted notes. Both are absolutely delicious and a perfect pick-me-up in the morning or a refreshing option throughout the day.


2. The Rum Gift—BACARDÍ’s Añejo Cuatro

One of BACARDÍ’s latest releases, Añejo Cuatro is a new premium rum. Barrel-aged for a minimum of four years (hence, the Cuatro name), this rum has excellent notes of mild vanilla, toasted oak, clove and honey. Its hue is focused on apricots.

This golden rum was inspired by BACARDÍ founder Don Facundo’s original recipe. It has a smooth palate that’s rounded out by the inclusion of some five- and six-year-old rums. Perfect for summer cocktails!


3. The Vodka Gift—Grey Goose by Quentin Monge

When it comes to vodka, Grey Goose is the king. Made in France from the finest ingredients, such as soft winter wheat from the Picardie region, we particularly recommend the Grey Goose by Quentin Monge, which is the latest instalment of the brand’s annual Riviera series.

The 2018 summer bottle design reflects Monge’s signature “stylishly whimsical” take on the French Riviera, the scenic birthplace of many renowned artists, such as Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Andre Derain. This limited-edition Grey Goose bottle was just released on June 1 and you don’t want to miss it.


4. The Fragrance Gift—Hugo Boss’ BOSS Bottled United

Released just a few weeks ago, on May 30, Hugo Boss’ latest fragrance is now available in stores. Featuring BOSS Parfums 2018 Soccer campaign, the brand is celebrating the individual paths to success of universally distinguished players Julian Draxler, Philippe Coutinho, Harry Kane and Alvaro Morata.

To celebrate this campaign, BOSS introduced its BOSS Bottled United, a new limited edition fragrance. Combining the crispness of the outdoors with an urban warmth, the scent opens with South African Buchu, combined with Blood Orange to create a citrus edge. BOSS Bottled United has a heart of Spearmint, Peppermint and Orris Concrete. It features a stylish silver-shaded flacon that was inspired by the shape of player trophies.


5. The Skincare Gift—Sea Berry Therapy’s Hydrating Face Serum

It’s summer, it’s hot and another excellent gift is one that involves hydration, hydration, hydration!

We love everything by Sea Berry Therapy because of the natural ingredients that their products are made from. Their Hydrating Face Serum is light and non-oily. It penetrates into your skin to provide deep hydration for the face and the neck. This product specifically focuses on eliminating flaky and dry skin.

Infused with vitamins, hyaluronic acid and seaberry (sea buckthorn) extract, this serum fortifies the skin against the aging process and helps repair damage at a cellular level. It’s also paraben-free and cruelty-free, and naturally stimulates collagen production. The size of the bottle makes it very portable, so it can easily be taken on summer vacations or to a cottage.


Happy Father’s Day and happy shopping!
