Presents for Well-known Fathers | AD

Father’s Day is simply across the nook (Sunday June 18th, to save lots of you having to Google!) and this 12 months Boots are celebrating all of the several types of dads and father figures with their Love for All Dads marketing campaign.

They’ve an enormous number of Father’s Day Presents out there on-line at and to point out you a few of the wide selection (and offer you a little bit of gifting inspo) I assumed that I’d select presents for a few of the most well-known fathers the world has ever identified:

Father Time, The Godfather and… Father Christmas.

Don’t say I by no means provide you with something. Right here goes.

Father Time

I’ll admit I knew little or no about Father Time; I needed to do some in-depth analysis on him earlier than deciding on an acceptable reward. I learn that he was usually depicted as an aged bearded man and in order that did throw up a little bit of a quandary: who would recognize a beard-trimmer extra? Christmas or Time? Then I discovered that Father Time typically had wings and I assumed that maybe one thing to easy his feathers may be a superb shout; he additionally carries a scythe – bit delinquent – and so I questioned whether or not a little bit of vibrant hair dye, possibly pink, may make him look much less menacing and a bit extra approachable.

However no. I didn’t need to get too carried away together with his Father’s Day current and select one thing he’d then should return. Even when he does have the entire time on the earth, he doesn’t need to waste it traipsing backwards and forwards to the publish workplace with the entire undesirable issues I’ve gifted him. The packets of pink hair dye or – and this was my different concept – the cross-body bag during which to securely carry the hourglass and clock he has to cart about with him – must be relegated to the rejects pile.

In the long run I picked out one thing I knew he’d recognize – anybody who’s been alive for greater than twenty years would welcome this onto their rest room shelf and he’s been alive for, effectively, endlessly. It’s No7 Males Shield and Excellent Superior Serum, designed to focus on deep strains and wrinkles. No7 serums are famend for delivering anti-ageing outcomes and this one isn’t any totally different. Slides on shortly and simply beneath any moisturiser or sunscreen, it’s the final word no-fuss big-results addition to any skincare routine. When you can persuade him to have one… it’s £24.95 at Boots.

The Godfather

Do you know that Boots have an entire number of actions and experiences to purchase as presents? The whole lot from supercar driving to aeroplane classes, helicopter rides to clay pigeon capturing. No one of their proper thoughts would belief Don Corleone with an precise gun, so Clay Pigeon capturing was out, however I assumed that maybe Paintballing can be an appropriate (and secure) various. The Godfather and three of his pals can select a handy paintballing location after which fireplace at one another to their hearts’ content material, figuring out that they’re not going to begin a New York mob struggle.

I believe that there’s an expertise reward for just about each kind of father, on the Boots web site. It’s an absolute superstore of actions. So you can be good, and get one thing that the recipient will truly like (a soothing afternoon tea, maybe, if that’s their jam), or you can actually sew them up and purchase them an expertise match for under essentially the most excessive adrenaline junkie. The selection is yours.

Paintballing for 4 is £20 at

Father Christmas

I don’t suppose anybody would have purchased Father Christmas a beard trimmer earlier than. It’s a bit presumptuous, isn’t it? Everyone knows he likes to maintain it lengthy and fluffy over the vacation interval. However – aha! What in regards to the occasions in-between? Do you actually suppose he desires to cart round that monstrosity twelve months a 12 months?

Step ahead the Philips Sequence 9000 Status Beard Trimmer with Metal Precision Expertise and BeardAdapt Sensor. Now look: that is no extraordinary beard trimmer. It’s just like the Rolls Royce of beard trimmers. Glossy, steel-bodied, expensively weighty within the hand. Simply sliding it from its carry case is a sensorial expertise, actually pleasing, even for me and I don’t have a beard. A lot.

That is what Santa wants from December twenty sixth till the Autumn. To trim all of it off. He’ll discover that his beard, come the next Christmas, will probably be way more shapely and fluffy because of his annual shearing.

However this isn’t a trimmer reserved completely for Father Christmas: mere mortals might also witness the trendy prowess of the 9000 Status. It’s £109.99 at Boots – one for the entire boys who’ve been very, excellent.

(And for those who’re on the lookout for one thing apart from a shaver, this Presents for Him web page has all of the choices in a single place, from skincare to aftershaves and extra.)

In order that’s the three most well-known fathers catered for. However what about the entire different dads? The place to begin?

Nicely actually, I’ve exhausted myself with all of this considering however I’ll provide you with a bonus advice for the entire trendy fathers on the market: Gucci Responsible Pour Homme. Particularly the Eau de Parfum.

The Parfum is so modern and attractive. The bottle is a little bit of a showstopper – it has a particular “if Batman wore scent” vibe – and the perfume itself is heat, woody and manageably unique. It’s a crowd-pleaser however in a massively subtle manner – and who doesn’t need one thing a bit luxurious and classy from the Home of Gucci? Daddy, Daddy Cool.

Gucci Responsible Pour Homme Parfum is £83.30 at Boots.

And for those who’re nonetheless caught for concepts then try this Presents for Dad information for extra inspiration.

Costs are right at time of writing and whereas shares final.

Proper, I’m going to cease there. There’s an actual danger that a few of my reward concepts may backfire on me. I need to state this proper now: I can’t be held completely accountable if Santa turns up clean-shaven for Christmas 2023…
