Father’s Day is coming up and our mission is clear: MAKE DAD HAPPY.
This Father’s Day, we’ve put together a gift guide according to 5 CELEBRITY DADS, each unique in his own way, just like how Dad is. We hand-picked a selection of books to READ, toys to PLAY with, places to GO, clothes to WEAR and gear to WIELD - at least one of them is sure to please Dad.
So which Celebrity Dad is your Dad?
1. JAMIE OLIVER:
The Charming Foodie
Despite being busy with his day job, the foodie dad will always make time to whip a home cooked meal for every occasion.
Although you might think your dad is the best cook, he might not be cooking the healthiest food. Jamie Oliver’s Everyday Super Food will help your Masterchef dad prepare healthier classic home cooked meals for the family.
Maybe there were times when your foodie dad got too overwhelmed in the kitchen and burnt some chicken on the stove. After getting the Sous Vide Supreme Water Oven, he’ll be sure to thank you for making his life easier. And your family will thank you for saving them from burnt chicken in the future.
Why not take your foodie dad out for a meal where he can enjoy food without the hard work and hassle. Coming all the day from Austria, Chef Stephan has been acknowledged by the Michelin Guide for the unique experience he provides at his restaurant that serves without a set menu.
You might think a chef’s uniform for your foodie dad is a great idea. The Massimo Alba shirt is similar to the traditional white uniform adorned by head chefs in high-end restaurants but is suitable not only for the kitchen, he can use it when he goes out for a nice dinner with the family.
If you’re looking for something your foodie dad can use outside of the kitchen, the reversible Strand Briefcase from Gnome & Bow is one for the road. The Hyde side of the bag lets him be stylish while getting groceries at the farmers’ market and the Jekyll side is appropriate for an evening out at a Waku Ghin or CUT.
2. BEAR GRYLLS:
The Wildlife Explorer
Other than playing make-believe at home with his children, the explorer dad enjoys taking walks on the wild side of life. To him, the best holidays are unplanned adventures.
Even for days where the explorer dad is stuck in the office or at home, The Lost City of Z by David Grann is an escape into the wild. Set in 1925, it tells the story of a British explorer who disappeared with his son in the Amazon while looking for an ancient city. Now made into a major motion picture.
Your explorer dad has probably suggested camping trips one time too many but the hassle of carrying a heavy backpack has kept the number of trips to a minimal. After giving your dad the Leatherman one-hand-operable multi-tool, outdoor adventures can be much more exciting and less exhausting.
