Father's day gift guide

Dads, we’d like to offer them an unreserved apology. For too many birthdays, Christmases and Father’s Days have they been on the unfortunate receiving end of novelty socks, bottle openers that double as fishing-rods and Armadillo beer holders (yes, it does exist!). These so called ‘gifts’ can no longer make do, so ditch the obscure presents and celebrate Father’s Day with our definitive beach style guide for him.

Swimwear

Orlebar Brown father's day

Orlebar Brown’s elegant collection of swimwear will have Dad looking laid back and cool on those lazy of beach days. Our stand-out favourites are the La Riva Loca Photographic short and the Aqua flecked Polo Shirt.

Sunglasses

Rayban father's day

You can never go wrong with these classics. Ray-ban are the definitive auteurs of eyewear, and now offer frames with customisable tones and engravings for that unique touch. Our highlight has to be the tortoiseshell Erika.

Luggage

Victorinox father's day

Victorinox, makers of the original Swiss Army Knife, have produced an equally reliable luggage line. Their ultra-light and durable carry ons and suitcases come with an inbuilt tracking programme, guaranteed to impress even the most skeptical Dad.

Gadgets

Waterproof mp4

Sleek design meets functionality with Speedo’s waterproof MP3 player. Suitable for full submersion in water, this little beauty will let him swim lengths to his favourite podcast or paddle board to the latest beats.

Footwear

Havaianas father's day

Havaianas  flip-flops are an absolute holiday essential. We love their ‘Urban’ edition in beige, which can be rocked from beach to bar and back again!
