Cool and unique Father’s Day gift ideas that’ll wow your old man
Choosing the right presents for Father’s Day is often a bit of a struggle. After all, you want to find something that he’ll genuinely appreciate and enjoy – which is why it’s always worth making the extra effort.
Cast any corny old ideas about ‘dad fashion’ out of your mind; your dad might not be an avid trend-hunter, but we reckon he’s got enough experience to know authentic style when he sees it. Dads these days are style-conscious with a clear idea of what they want from their clothing – and that means you have to step up your game when you’re buying cool Father’s Day gifts for them!
Father’s Day provides you with the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation for all the hard work and support your dad has offered you over the years. Here at The Edinburgh Woollen Mill, we’ve have high-quality, unique Father’s Day gifts for you to consider. Read on to find out more.
Golf attire for a seasoned pro
If your dad’s a golf dad, then Father’s Day is the perfect time to refresh his wardrobe with some sophisticated men’s golfing apparel. A simple and smart golf polo shirt could be the ideal choice (especially with the warmer summer months nearly upon us).
Of course, we all know that the summer weather in Britain isn’t always reliable (to put it mildly) – so it’s worth being prepared! A golf slipover could also make an invaluable Father’s Day gift; not only does it add a dash of finesse to your golfing attire, but it’s practical all year round and offers added warmth on chilly summer evenings.
If golf is not your Dad’s forte, or perhaps he already owns enough polo shirts to open up his own shop, how about considering some comfortable alternatives that he can wear anytime? A set of printed flannel pyjamas might be exactly what he needs to lounge around comfortably and wind down in the evening. Pyjamas might not be the preferred choice to wear out and about in public, but some luxury men’s nightwear is a cosy gift that’s hard to resist – remember, pyjamas are for life, not just for Christmas!
Does your old man consider warmth and practicality as top priorities when on the hunt for new style staples? Jackets and scarves might be more commonplace during the colder months, but modern designs using lightweight fabrics are ideal for relaxed garden gatherings or countryside walks throughout spring and summer.
Accessorise in style
Whether flat caps ever went out of style is a matter for debate, but regardless the style is back in for good. The huge popularity of the BBC series, ‘Peaky Blinders’, has sparked a major revival of the classic flat cap, which is as likely to be found sitting atop the heads of city-dwellers as country squires these days.
Needless to say, a Harris Tweed flat cap makes a brilliant gift for the style-savvy dad. There are different variations on this classic theme; from the no-frills flat cap that’s ideal for town or country wear, to the more elaborate eight-piece cap (somewhat similar in style to those seen in Peaky Blinders) made from luxurious virgin wool.
If he’s a bit more of a traditionalist and is always complaining that his head’s cold in the winter, a cable-knit hat should be at the top of your list. We’ve got a wide range of different hats to choose from including traditional trapper hats and more modern beanie styles.
Beige is the new black
Nobody said beige has to be boring, but it has been given an unfair tag over the years. Sure, it’s not a vibrant colour, but its earthy tone makes it an unbeatable choice for an outfit base – try co-ordinating with crisp, white shirts, black jeans or even a pair of denim shorts.
For the style-conscious Dad, we’ve got a number of beige items that can be teamed with his favourite shirts and accessories, including lambswool crew neck jumpers for the ultimate smart casual look, or a Harris Tweed Uist Waistcoat that will give him guaranteed style points for the next big occasion.
