Gift Guide: What To Get Your Father Figure this Father’s Day

In a bit of a tizzy because you don’t know how to give thanks to the human that is your real-life superhero? Well, a few of the ELLE team members share what they have on their wishlist to hopefully get you inspired.

At the end of the day though, it’s the thought that counts!

Thought that hankies were old school? That’s exactly what they are. Bring dad back to hi roots with these cotton hankies that will not only come in handy for him and you, but also will make him look super cool as he whips it out of his suit jacket and cleans his glasses.

PUMA Thunder Electric Men’s sneaker, R2 299, PUMA SELECT

My father is a low-key sneakerhead, though he may not necessarily call himself that! We have pretty much the same taste too so a pair of “dad” shoes would be the perfect gift -we can even wear them at the same time. The dad shoe trend has taken over international runways and I for one am coveting it. The Thunder Electric sneaker comes in both “menswear” and “womenswear” styles, though I prefer to not gender my shoes – the menswear kicks will be dropping in 2 colourways on 21st June. A very en-trend albeit a little late father’s day gift for my pops.

Bleu de Chanel fragrance, Chanel, 50ml : R1655, 100ml : R2325

This new fragrance from Chanel that launched this month is a must-have! This is a bit of a splurge but nothing but the best for the best, right?

Happy father’s day to all the father figures. We appreciate you.
