Spoil the special man in your life this Father’s Day with a gift from Connaught Village. We’ve collated a list of our top picks for gifts perfect for fathers, uncles, grandfathers and even dads to be - to make this year's shopping a little easier. We have something for everyone in Connaught Village, so read on to discover more.
Check out the Rutland Leather Hip Flask from luxury bespoke menswear store The Place London for Men. Made of stainless steel and bound with Rutland calf leather, the hip flask comes in three signature colours - red, navy or black - and arrives in a cotton pouch. The perfect keepsake gift, find it here.
For a refined yet playful gift, get the Simon Carter Victoriana Beetle Cufflinks. Inspired by late 19th century jewellery this gothic style beetle has a hint of menace about it. The gold plate is topped with mother-of-pearl and Swarovski crystal and will add a pinch of sophistication to any shirt. Find the cufflinks here.
Every chef needs a great set of knives, and home chefs are no different! The Heston Blumenthal Carving Set is available to purchase at our very own The Sharpening Shed, consisting of a deluxe spiked bamboo cutting board, a slicing knife and carving fork - perfect for that annual Father’s Day roast. Check out the set here.
Buchanan’s Cheesemongers also offer a bespoke hamper especially for Father’s Day. Inside is a selection of four artisan cheeses, sweet onion marmalade, nuts, hot sauce, craft beer and a bottle of fine cider. Or if you’d prefer, you can customise your own hamper to suit your fathers tastes. Find this in their store at 5a Porchester Place.
For the wine connoisseurs in need of another bottle to add to the collection, head over to Connaught Cellars to pick out a bottle or two. We’d recommend opting for a bottle of the Petrolo 'Boggina A' Valdarno di Sopra 2016 from Tuscany. A fine Sangiovese, critics have scored this as one of the top 5 Valdarno di Sopra wines, so it is guaranteed to put a smile on any fathers face. Discover this and more of their range here.
And finally, one for the dinner party host with most! Visit Mud Australia to pick up one of their signature Tray Platters and choose from 18 different colour palettes. Perfect for canapes, antipasti or petit fours, the tray is a long slim platter that is ideal for entertainers. Give as a generous gift by itself or go all out and pair it with some smaller serving bowls for a knockout crockery hamper. Find it online here.
