5 fabulous Father’s Day gift ideas

Father’s Day arrives on June 16 this year and if you’re stuck for gift ideas on what to buy the man who has everything (and you're opting for DIY tools, chocolates or 'designer' socks, again) then now’s a good time to get a thoughtful gift ordered online. Here are top five great gift ideas for him, all available at ACHICA today...

1. If, when he’s taking care of the barbecue at family get-togethers, Dad thinks he’s got more skills than MasterChef’s John Torode, then a five-piece Chef’s In-Home Entertaining Set with perspex block from Jean Patrique could be a welcome gift. The stylish set features an ice-cream scoop, a clam and oyster knife, a bottle and tin opener, a serrated cake server and a cheese knife that’s sharp enough to slice through the toughest of rinds.

2. Alternatively, how about a man bag? Not just any man bag, but a luxurious English Bridle leather bag from Tranner Krolle. We're loving the beautiful craftsmanship of the Bailey Lawyers Case in Cognac and the Double Gusset briefcase (both shown below). They feature special pockets for card holders, blackberries, pens and that coveted tablet computer.

3. Moleskine is known for its legendary notebooks, but the brand also makes these luxurious tablet and e-reader holders, which are light and durable and feature a handy internal divider that let you stand the device upright. A thoughtful and stylish gift that will protect a coveted gadget, be it an iPad, Kindle, Google Nexus or alike...

4. Calling all coffee lovers. This may look like something from Joseph Wright of Derby's famous painting An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump, but it's actually the latest in coffee gadgetry. Japanese company HARIO has designed and developed the Hario Drip pot to create the perfect cup of coffee. It's a professional barista tool made of heat-resistant glass, ceramic and plastic. It features a cloth filter that allows for more oils to escape into the cup than a paper filter brewer. It makes a unique gift and a great after-dinner talking point when the After Eights come out and the coffee starts brewing.

5. Last but not least, sporty dads might just like these wall hangings from Original British Signs. As well as a range of vintage-metal signs featuring places such as The Oval - a great idea for a keen cricketer - there's the nostalgic Grand National, Moris Motor and Land Rover signs to choose from too. If they're not to Dad's taste, you can always keep them for yourself and hang them in your own hall. And that definitely sounds like a good plan.
