With the arrival of September comes the promise of many things. Spring, for starters, is officially in the air, and along with it comes the chance to celebrate some of the most important men in our lives: fathers.

Yes, it’s hard to believe it’s already that time of year, but with only four months left on the calendar, we must turn our attention to Father’s Day, which falls on Sunday, September 3 this year.

And what better way to welcome in the new month than with a weekend of gifts and some much-needed bonding time with whomever you plan on celebrating? Whether it be your dad, grandad or husband (because he is a father too), it’s best to be organised for his special day.

What is a good gift to get for Father’s Day?

When shopping for Father’s Day, it’s important to keep in mind his interests and hobbies, as well as add your own special touch, to ensure you choose a thoughtful gift for the man in your life.

Tailoring the gift to his personality and likes will make it all the more special and appreciated. You simply can’t go wrong with a custom-made piece of jewellery or cosy knitwear to keep his sartorial rotation fresh and on-trend.

Of course, when in doubt you can opt for the classics; like wool socks or a cotton robe that he’ll make use of every single day.
