Timepiece and accessories from Montblanc
From sleek watches and writing instruments to accessories and leather goods, there’s something for every dad at Montblanc. For the modern and stylish dad, our top pick falls on the contemporary yet classic Montblanc Star Legacy timepieces. With hand-painted Sfumato alligator straps and dials that are adorned with exploding star guilloché pattern in the centre, this watch will make sure your dad look elegant on any occasion. Meanwhile, if your dad is more into leather goods, Montblanc also has a choice of document cases or backpack from the Meisterstück Selection Sfumato Animation. And that’s not all from this German house. Paying tribute to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince, Montblanc offers Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition for Father’s Day that includes fountain pen, cufflinks, and a money clip with beautiful designs that are drawn from the motifs and themes of the French writer’s most famous story.

Sunglasses from Gentle Monster
Who says you can’t combine style with function? With the stylish sunglasses from Gentle Monster, you can keep your dad away from the bright ray of sunlight while still adding a stylish element to his look. We particularly love this Korean eyewear label for its show-stopping eclectic design, and although we love getting them for ourselves, the brand also has the men’s collection that will be perfect for the stylish dads out there.

Personalised hip flask
Personalisation always wins when it comes to gift-giving for a special person on a special occasion, including Father’s Day. For the dad who loves his bar, there’s nothing better than this gift of a personalised hip flask that you can easily get online. The copper plated flask can be engraved with a personalised message of up to 45 characters long. Just make sure you spare some time to order the gift before D-day as it can take around ten to 14 days for the gift to be delivered.
Deep sea fishing charter
Giving your dad a gift is one thing, but giving him the gift of experiences is something else. If your dad loves fishing – or has always wanted to do so – then taking him on a fishing trip will make the most memorable Father’s Day gift that he’ll never forget. One of the best trips we found is this 7-hour private deep sea fishing charter that will get your dad on board of the modern-luxury 38-foot fishing boat called The Cougar. The trip will start from the Kwun Tong Public Pier and all the way to your choice of fishing destinations such as Sai Kung, Ninepin Islands, Po Toi Island, and Waglan Island. At the end of the day, there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing your dad with his catch of the day such as Groupers, Snappers, Croakers, and more. If you decide to join the trip, you can even give him an extra gift: a memorable bonding time with his child!
Squarestreet watches from 15 squarestreet
A Father’s Day gift guide would not be complete without a watch! For more affordable selection of timepieces, you can check out the watches at 15 squarestreet, which is a multi-brand accessories store specialised in modern timepieces and eyewear. If your dad is into simple designs, he’ll love the store’s own line of timepieces called squarestreet, which boasts Scandinavian iconic touch of minimalism that is also rich in texture and detail. For the more modern dads, their SQ31 Aluminium collection will make a perfect gift, but if he’s more into a classic design, we bet he’ll love the SQ38 Square Plano collection that comes with a stainless steel case.

Staycation in the city

So why don’t you treat him to a mini staycation at any boutique or luxury hotel in the city, and get him feeling refreshed with a much-needed mini break that he deserves.
