Here’s our edit to help you find the perfect present this Father’s Day …
With Father’s Day just around the corner (this Sunday, June 19), we’ve rounded up the best gifts for all types of dads and father figures in your life. For the dad who loves his pens? Check out the stylish and affordable Kaweco ink pens (available in a wide range of colours, €20.99), also with coloured ink cartridges; www.unbound.ie. We also love Sheaffer 100 Glossy Black Ballpoints, €30 each, at The Pen Place. Ask owner Brendan for advice on all kinds of pens and inks – he is an expert who has been in the pen business for 40 years, and is fascinating to talk to; The Pen Place, Dun Laoghaire Shopping Centre, Co Dublin; 087 254 2932; 01 280 5020. For the Dad who loves to cook? The iconic Italian Marcato pasta making machine will put a smile on his face. The all-singing (chopping, dicing and slicing) Japanese chef’s knife by Kai Wasabi also comes highly recommended, because your dad deserves the best. Both available from dedicated cooking concept store The Triggerfish Cookshop; www.triggerfishcookshop.ie. You can’t go wrong with a great scent. Check out the striking vetiver scent; the oil comes from a grass plant native to India and Indonesia, and Dominique Ropion’s Vetiver Extraordinaire, in the Editions de Frederic Malle collection, is aromatic, fresh, a little citrussy and softly charming (you’ll want to wear it too). Available as a shave cream and aftershave balm, too. From €155, at Brown Thomas Dundrum. Here’s our edit to help you find the perfect present …
