A Gift Guide for the Father Figure in Our Lives

Celebrating the father figures in our lives.

As Father’s Day approaches, NUVO has rounded up some of the best gifts to consider: some to celebrate, some to relax with, and some to just make their life a lot easier.

We have the cocktail party outfit sorted, but dads spent just as much time running around. This Father’s Day, why not gift a pair of sturdy trainers that will keep dads light on their feet. The Cottonwood Low from Oboz is just the ticket, with the company’s proprietary sole combined with recycled materials in the upper and lining for a sustainable, and solid, shoe.





VIGYL Scented Candle 

We have probably all tested our dad’s patience to the limit at some point, and it is important to remember that dads need their relaxation time too. Give them with a candle from Vigyl. The Toronto-based company makes candles hand-poured into a ceramic mould, using pure soy wax and 10 per cent fragrance to ensure a clean, fresh, and noticeable aroma.





Rodd & Gunn Shirt

As we reach summer, linen is the material of choice for a lot of dads. Lightweight yet stylish, this linen shirt from Rodd & Gunn, available in a range of colours, will keep any dad looking their best while surviving the summer scorch.





Glenlivet 12-Year-Old Single Malt

Sometimes only booze will do, and for Father’s Day, whisky is a safe bet. The Glenlivet 12-year-old is a dram that will please newcomers to single malt and experienced sippers alike with its notes of vanilla and pineapple. With the distillery celebrating its 200th anniversary, it is a timely occasion to see what The Glenlivet is all about.





SMEG Drip Coffee Maker

Make sure any fathers, but especially the new ones, are locked and loaded with enough caffeine to see them through any challenges of the day. This coffee maker from Smeg can make 10 cups of drip coffee and will keep it piping hot for 40 minutes.





MUJI Linen Blazer

Back to linen. Summer is not all Hawaiian shirts and flip flops. Sometimes the occasion calls for a little class, and this linen blazer from Muji is a way to provide it without verging into black tie territory. The linen is light, and the fit actually improves as time goes on, providing dads with a long-term solution to dressing up.





Google Pixel 8 Smartphone

Sometimes, parents and technology are not the best mix. We have all been on the receiving end of a phone call about the Wi-Fi not working at some point. With the Google Pixel 8’s easy-to-use software and high-quality camera, this is the ideal phone for any dad to use easily and make sure all the family pictures are clear as day.




Fathers Day

Gucci Horsebit Tie 

With the low-key blazer sorted, this tie from Gucci is a stylish  accompaniment for when the occasion requires a little more formality. Embroidered with Gucci’s iconic horsebit (of loafer fame), it is the classy accessory for Father’s Day.
