Have you left your Father’s Day plans to the last minute? Well, don’t worry as we’ve picked out our favourite ways to treat Dad with a special Father’s Day Lust List. From sophisticated scents and gentlemanly grooming to country getaways and supercar experiences, there’s no need to reach for the socks and ties this year as we’ve provided gift ideas to suit even the trickiest of Dads.

THE BEARDED DAD

Father's Day Percy Nobleman Grooming Kit

Percy Nobleman’s Ultimate Grooming Box – £105

It’s fair to say that the beard is having a moment in Britain so any style-conscious Dad looking to upgrade his grooming regime would be impressed with this top-notch kit from entrepreneurial English gent brand Percy Nobleman. Handcrafted from African rosewood, this ultimate box comes complete with beard conditioning oil, wash, balm and gentleman’s styling wax as well as all the beard-styling tool essentials.

Father's Day Atkinsons British Bouquet

Atkinsons British Bouquet – £100

Any true British gentlemen can tell a decent scent when he smells one and any dandyish Dad would be happy to receive Atkinson’s British Bouquet. Inspired by Beau Brummel, the intrepid pioneer of the iconic 3-piece suit, this velvety concoction of myrtle, lavender and malt gilded with citrus top notes of bitter orange and lemon caviar is a smart and quirky scent for those great eccentric Dads out there.

Their private cottages barn conversions offer the perfect base for you to explore the surrounding countryside. Go for a walk in the nearby Arboretum or maybe test your skills with a day clay shooting.

So not only will Dad be able to indulge in West Country plates of smoked ham hock and roast pork belly, but he’ll also have the chance to get behind the wheel of his dream car. And if you don’t win? Well, there’s always the fine local ales, cocktails and delicious Somerset ciders to console him with…
