Gifts for Famous Fathers | AD

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

They’ve an enormous collection of Father’s Day Presents obtainable on-line at and to indicate you a number of the big selection (and offer you a little bit of gifting inspo) I believed that I’d select presents for a number 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 offer you 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 applicable 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 came upon that Father Time typically had wings and I believed that maybe one thing to easy his feathers could be a great shout; he additionally carries a scythe – bit delinquent – and so I questioned whether or not a little bit of vibrant hair dye, perhaps pink, would possibly make him look much less menacing and a bit extra approachable.

However no. I didn’t wish to get too carried away together with his Father’s Day current and select one thing he’d then must return. Even when he does have all the time on this planet, he doesn’t wish to waste it traipsing forwards and backwards to the put up workplace with all the undesirable issues I’ve gifted him. The packets of pink hair dye or – and this was my different thought – the cross-body bag during which to soundly 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 toilet shelf and he’s been alive for, effectively, eternally. It’s No7 Males Shield and Good Superior Serum, designed to focus on deep traces and wrinkles. No7 serums are famend for delivering anti-ageing outcomes and this one isn’t any completely 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. In case you can persuade him to have one… it’s £24.95 at Boots.

The Godfather

Do you know that Boots have an entire collection of actions and experiences to purchase as items? The whole lot from supercar driving to aeroplane classes, helicopter rides to clay pigeon capturing. No person of their proper thoughts would belief Don Corleone with an precise gun, so Clay Pigeon capturing was out, however I believed that maybe Paintballing can be an acceptable (and protected) different. The Godfather and three of his buddies can select a handy paintballing location after which hearth at one another to their hearts’ content material, realizing that they’re not going to begin a New York mob conflict.

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

Paintballing for 4 is £20 at

Father Christmas

I don’t assume 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 instances in-between? Do you actually assume he desires to cart round that monstrosity 12 months a yr?

Step ahead the Philips Collection 9000 Status Beard Trimmer with Metal Precision Expertise and BeardAdapt Sensor. Now look: that is no strange 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 satisfying, 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, can be much more shapely and fluffy due to his annual shearing.

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

(And for those who’re searching 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 all the different dads? The place to begin?

Effectively truthfully, I’ve exhausted myself with all of this considering however I’ll offer you a bonus suggestion for all the trendy fathers on the market: Gucci Responsible Pour Homme. Particularly the Eau de Parfum.

The Parfum is so smooth 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 trendy 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 take a look at 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 threat that a few of my reward concepts would possibly backfire on me. I wish to state this proper now: I can’t be held completely accountable if Santa turns up clean-shaven for Christmas 2023…
