The 30 Best Luxury Father’s Day Gift Ideas


What does a father really want for Father’s Day in 2024? That is apart from being left alone in silence with nothing but his thoughts. Yes, the stoic patriarch can be difficult to buy for, even if you’re boasting a big budget. But there will be a gift to suit whether it is an accessory that elevates his favorite outfit or a gadget that makes daily life a touch easier. In this Father’s Day gift guide, we’ve given you ideas for all sorts of dads, from the fashion-conscious to the technophile, and from the whiskey connoisseur to the health-kicker.

Wine & Spirits

Stag’s Leap, CASK 23 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

The Stag’s Leap Estate Collection with the CASK 23 (right) the pick of the bunch / ©Stag’s Leap

Napa Valley rules the roost when it comes to Cabernet Sauvignon, and today’s upstarts have Stag’s Leap to thank. It was this plucky vineyard that established California’s wine-growing prowess when it pitted itself against Old World wines in the 1970s. In 1973, a bottle of its Estate Collection won out against the established titans in an entirely French panel. Today, that bottle is celebrated as one of the Objects That Made America by The Smithsonian. While those mythical bottles are long since spoken for, you can get a taste of the magic with its CASK 23 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Combining the perfume notes of FAY and the dark fruit and structure of S.L.V, CASK 23 is harvested from specific blocks in each vineyard. The result is a wine with a vibrant mouthfeel and blackberry and currant flavors.

Glenglassaugh, The Serpentine Collection

Glenglassaugh whisky
Glenglassaugh Serpentine Collection 48 Year Old / ©Glenglassaugh

Glenglassaugh is one of those whisky distilleries that more people should know about. Ideally placed on the east coast of Scotland, it produces a whisky that incorporates the best of Highland and island whisky – lots of fresh fruit with touches of sea salt and minerality. The Serpentine Collection is Glenglassaugh’s first foray into the fine and rare market, incorporating three highly aged single-cask whiskies. 

Although all three have a similar age (48, 49 and 51 years old), they are remarkably different in their textures and styles. The 48 Year Old was aged in a rare Aleatico red wine barrique, giving it a dark and fruity texture. The 49 Year Old was aged in a typical ex-bourbon barrel, which allows the distillery’s enviable characteristics to shine. The 51 Year Old was an ex-Olorosso sherry cask, giving it the typically dry and spicy texture of an aged Scotch whisky.

You’ll be pleased to know our pick is also the cheapest: The 48 Year Old is available for an SRP of $9,500. Expect a delicious melange of lychee and dried raspberries with a touch of sea salt. Delicious.

$9,500, glenglassaugh.com

The Glenturret, Jaguar C-Type

So much good has come out of The Glenturret in recent years, including what Whisky Magazine judged to be the world’s best whisky in 2023. That bottle, the Triple Wood, costs under $100 and is thoroughly recommended for those working on smaller budgets. But if you’re looking for something extra special, this exclusive Jaguar C-Type edition is the perfect gift whether your dad likes collecting or drinking his whisky.

Made in honor of the car that dominated Le Mans and introduced disc brakes to the world, the Jaguar C-Type whisky has been drawn from a mixture of heavy ex-sherry casks (Olorosso and Pedro Ximinez) and ex-bourbon for a delightful combination of flavors. Crafted by the ex-Macallan whisky expert Bob Dalgarno, this is a whisky any sherry-led distillery would be proud of.

Royal Salute is one of the most prestigious Scotch whisky brands in the world. Established in 1953 to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, Royal Salute has never released a whisky younger than 21 years old. With its royal connections, it’s no surprise the blended whisky brand also has close associations with the sport of polo. The Miami Polo Edition is the sixth inductee into its Polo Collection, celebrating the vibrant city’s connection with the sport.

This edition celebrates Miami’s night scene with a striking pink decanter and a decorative presentation box displaying the city’s Art Deco architecture. Inside, you’ll find a beautiful whisky made with a blend of first-fill bourbon and first-fill rye casks. That gives the whisky a delightful tropical flavor, with coconut and vanilla front and center. It’s the perfect summer whisky, and therefore perfect for this upcoming Father’s Day.

Midleton Very Rare, Annual Release 2024

Midleton whiskey

Midleton Very Rare has been busy this year, first releasing a spectacular $20,000 “Ruby” whiskey before following it up with a $55,000 49 Year Old – the oldest Irish whiskey ever released. The annual release is far more modest by comparison but remains fit for any special occasion.

This non-age statement whiskey draws from a wide range of aged casks, giving it a symphony of flavors from warming butterscotch to aged oak spice. Crafted by the master distiller Kevin O’Gorman, Midleton Very Rare is said to be the pinnacle expression of Irish whiskey. Presented in an eco-conscious presentation box, the bottle has an enduring shelf appeal with its distinctive crevasse and high-quality label – it would improve almost anyone’s home bar.

Clase Azul Mexico, Tequila Gold

Forget the lime and salt: Clase Azul Mexico has been a major player in tequila’s rise to the top shelf. The luxury brand is famed for its distinctive decanters, all hand-made by local artisans. As well as supporting local communities, Clase Azul also makes world-leading tequila. The Tequila Gold is a fine example of the brand’s innovation: a mixture of a reposado tequila matured in French oak casks and an extra añejo finished in sherry casks. The mixed maturation gives it a complex taste including ginger, green olives, figs and toasted oak – perfect for sipping by the campfire on summer nights.

Watches

Tag Heuer X Kith F1

If your dad is into watches and cars, odds are he had (or dreamt of having) a Tag Heuer x Kith F1 watch as a child. These cheap quartz watches in plastic cases in pop colors were all the rage when they first launched in 1986. With nostalgia reigning supreme among Gen X and increasing demand for cheaper day-to-day wearers, Tag Heuer has brought back the popular design for a limited run. The watches are available in 10 colors with plastic or steel bracelet straps. Only stocked in selected Tag Heuer and Kith stores, you’ll have to go on a bit of a goose chase or face paying a premium online.

$1,500, tagheuer.com

MB&F M.A.D Editions Green

M.A.D. Editions MAD 1 Green / ©M.A.D Editions

MB&F was only founded in 2005 but already has a legion of followers stretching across the globe. Its novel takes on haute horology have inspired HNWs to part with six-figure sums including the HM11 and the Legacy Machine. Six-figure watches aren’t for everyone, however. Recognizing that, MB&F produced a limited quantity of M.A.D Edition watches, a watch at a fraction of the price of its usual timepieces, but all the fun. The Green edition was released in 2023 and included a crazy spinning rotor blade on top. Wearers tell the time on the side of the watch. The initial run of 1,500 watches sold for 2,900 CHF ($3,200) via raffle, so anyone hoping to get one today will have to pay a small premium on second-hand sales websites such as Chrono24 of eBay. But owning a watch made by a company that used to produce only 300 per year is worth the extra cost.

Girard-Perregaux Laureato Chronograph Ti49

As the watch world continues to chase classic sports watches from a few brands, Girard-Perregaux’s eternally beautiful Laureato remains widely available at a reasonable price. One of the original sports watches first launched in 1974, the Laureato’s octagonal design has proved timeless. The Ti49 edition marks the first time the watch has been clad in grade 5 titanium. The Swiss watchmakers chose grade 5 titanium because it is light, strong, non-magnetic and hypoallergenic. It also polishes to a brilliant gleam, meaning the watch will give off a new-look shimmer every time it goes in for a service.

Glashütte Original, PanoMaticInverse Limited Edition

Glashütte Original, PanoMaticInverse Limited Edition / ©Glashütte

The German town of Dresden, affectionately known as ‘Florence on the Elbe’, has an underappreciated beauty. Glashütte Original, one of few haute German watchmakers, has attempted to shine a light on its architectural beauty with a limited-edition PanoMaticInverse showcasing the town’s most historic sites. The dial has been engraved with the image of the dome of the Frauenkirche and the Academy of Fine Arts, two buildings that have inspired its similarity to Florence. Through the crystal caseback, wearers are treated to a vision of the Elbe promenade. Limited to just 25 pieces, this watch would be the perfect gift for anyone with close associations with the German town.

Fragrances

Parfums de Marly, Perseus

parfums de marly perseus frgrance Father's Day

The latest release from French perfumery Parfums de Marly, Perseus is a fragrance all but made for summer. Leading with big, fresh grapefruit notes before moving into earthy, grass-like vetiver, the brand claims that the scent “evokes early morning at the royal residence of Marly, at the moment when the sun’s first rays waken the château, warm its gardens and make its fountains sparkle.” Dry woods and leathery Ambergris Accord give an earthier undertone. The bright yellow bottle, embossed with Parfums de Marly’s signature dancing horses, makes a nice change from en vogue minimalist packaging, too.

Penhaligon’s, Eau The Audacity

penhaligon's eau de audacity

From eccentric London-based perfume house Penhaligon’s, we bring you Eau The Audacity, a unisex fragrance launched last year. As with all Penhaligon’s perfumes, expect some tongue-in-cheek fun: the brand calls this one a “bottle of boldness to cast off the shackles of shyness.” Smoky and peppery, with a hint of sweet vanilla and uplifting orange blossom, Eau The Audacity is a big and bold fragrance that isn’t afraid to make its presence known. Approach with caution. 

$275, penhaligons.com

Loewe, 001 Man

Loewe man 001 fragrance

The brand of the moment isn’t all about show-stopping red carpet moments (Josh O’Connor, Ariana Grande and Taylor Russell at the Met Gala anyone?); Loewe is also putting out some stellar fragrances. This Father’s Day, consider the 001 Man, which layers patchouli, cypress and carrot seeds to create an overtly masculine yet not overpowering impression. This is Loewe, so expect slick, stylish packaging too – a winning Father’s Day gift for the cool dad.

Le Labo, Matcha 26

le labo matcha 26

Rich, intriguing and peerless: Le Labo’s fragrances are a key marker of cool. While Santal 33 might have achieved cult-like status, don’t be afraid to delve deeper into the NYC-based brand’s portfolio. The more recently launched Matcha 26 taps into the creamy fig notes of the Japanese tea, with zesty hints of bitter orange giving an uplifting kick. Le Labo’s fragrances are highly regarded for their staying power – a spritz or two will linger the whole day and beyond. The personalized bottles are a nice touch for Father’s Day, too. 

$230, lelabofragrances.com

Byredo, Mohave Ghost

byredo mojave ghost fathers day fragrance

Another cult-like modern fragrance brand, Byredo is known for its subtle yet entirely distinctive scents, each of which uses pure perfume extracts for serious staying power. Mohave Ghost is inspired by the Californian Mojave Desert, which sits at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains, and the brave plants that thrive in the dry, unforgiving landscape. Woody notes take the lead, but there’s also a sense of vibrancy thanks to spicy Jamaican nesberry and crisp amber. A unique scent with impressive longevity – but don’t be surprised if mom is inclined to steal the odd spritz, too.
