A Father's Day gift guide to help you shop stress-free.
We know shopping for Dad can be difficult (read: impossible!). That’s why we asked five top interior designers for Father’s Day shopping advice. They came back with suggestions that are just right for Pop—stylish and practical. Straight from the experts, here are eight gift ideas for the design-loving dad.
Starting at $2,900, Lightform “Designed by Hans Wegner in 1951 and produced by Modernica, this chair is said to be named for the paw-like armrests that embrace you—just right for your papa bear!” – Melissa Ennis
$55, Chapters Indigo Coffee table books are always a great gift, according to Connie Young, because they’re inspirational and fun to look at. This is one of Young’s current favourites, which she says would be great for the design-loving dad.
$60, TAKD Design This ideal Father’s Day companion, selected by Cara Gabriel, is a study in simplicity and functionality. Crafted from brass and wood, the brass can be left to patina over time or buffed back to a sheen. You could even match it with Dad’s favourite craft beer for extra brownie points.
$50, Chapters IndigoJamie Hamilton & Greer Nelson love this fun gin-making kit – it comes with everything you need, including a hand-selected blend of juniper berries, botanicals, spices and aromatics. It could be a great activity for you and your dad to do together (bonding time!).
$350, West ElmIf Dad’s gin and spirits collection is getting a little extensive for his liquor cabinet, this West Elm bar cart, selected by Jamie Hamilton & Greer Nelson, might be just what he needs.
Price on request, Inform Interiors“It’s hard not to love the simplicity of the Mart chair from B&B Italia and designed by Antonio Citterio. Dad will love how comfortable it is, but be sure to have this chair on show—it’s too beautiful to be relegated to the Dad den.” – Cara Gabriel
$99, West ElmMelissa Ennis loves this nautical lamp. Inspired by vintage boats and made of marble and brass, it will shine in the captain’s office.
$25, Kent of EnglewoodNyla Free says this green tea pre-shave oil will leave skin looking and feeling its best. Why not make shaving an experience for Dad, rather than a chore?
