Father’s day is just around the corner, and Grace Brewer has put together the ten gifts we think should be on every modern-day dad’s wish list.
He’s been putting up with your nonsense since you were in the womb, and has guided you through life’s little adventures, passing down knowledge and wisdom through the generations. So the very least you can do this Father’s Day is let the old man know how much he means to you with a savvy he-tastic gift, from customised clubs and stylish turntables to coffee on the go.
TaylorMade MySpider Tour Putter
The most popular putter on tour, and suitable for any golfing gentleman, everything about TailorMade’s MySpider can be customised, from the type of neck — double-bend, slant, or plumber — to the colour of the club. Give your dad a stroke of confidence on the course with an entirely bespoke putter, specifically to his liking and talents.
Leatherman Heritage Wave+ Multitool
Ensure the man of the house has the Heritage Wave, Leatherman’s best-selling multi-tool, an 18-trick essential, complete with a classic leather sheath for storage. With needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, spring action scissors, and a bottle opener, this tiny toolkit has everything a modern man would need.
MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker
Even the most sophisticated coffee aficionado will appreciate this battery-operated espresso maker when he’s on the go. Minipresso GR is a compact, lightweight portable espresso machine that allows you to make authentic espressos at home, at the office, or virtually anywhere in between. Gift this gadget to dad with a bag of carefully selected coffee beans, which he can grind to his preference to make shots of java whenever he needs a fix.

Wheel by Miniot
If he’s a music-man, the Miniot Wheel Turntable provides a sleek and unobstructed view of his favourite records while the needle reads the record from below. An electronically-stabilized belt drive spins the aluminium plate at a perfect 33.3 revolutions per minute, while the outer ring secures the record and eliminates resonance. Choose from a wooden base of mahogany, walnut, or cherry to add a touch of style to his man cave.

Menu Peter Orsig Wine Breather Decanter
The Peter Orsig Wine Breather is a stunningly modern decanter from Danish design company Menu. Pick up his favourite bottle of red to pair with this Father’s Day gift; once the wine is uncorked, stick the silicone spout on top of the bottle, flip it over, and watch the wine swirl in. If the label is one he wants to show off, you also have the option to pour it just as easily right back into the bottle.
