Tech gadgets to stylish scents: Father’s Day gift guide for 2022
Father's Day is right around the corner (4 Sep), and if you're still scratching your head on what to get your father figure in your life, then fear not. From techy gadgets to help you relax, to signature scents, we bring you the best Father's Day gifts we know he'll love.

For some peace and quiet: Designed by a Finnish tech startup, the QuietOn 3 sleep earbuds are designed to give you a great night’s sleep by reducing low-frequency sounds like TVs, appliances and even snoring partners.

For the bearded dad: Made in NZ using natural ingredients, Earnest Empire is a great pick for the father or father figure that maintains a well-groomed facial hair. In particular this Birch Bark and Pepper Tree fragrance is stylish and unique and the blend of Mango, Olive and Kokum Butters as well as Apricot Oil and Vitamin E will keep skin underneath well hydrated and smooth.

For the avid chef: Dial up your kitchen game with the Kai Shun Classic Paring Knife, a beautifully-crafted Japanese-style kitchen knife. Available at all major homeware retailers.

For the stylish at-home desk: The Satechi Eco-Leather Deskmate is a stylish addition to your working-from-home setup. Made from polyurethane leather, the soft, water-resistent mat can be used as a mouse pad, writing surface and even a food mat.

A cant-go-wrong scent: Dior’s Sauvage fragrance is a global best-seller that hit the mark for many men given its fresh opening and soft amber and woody dry-down. When fragrance choices are tricky it’s a fairly safe bet! This set comes with a handy coordinating aftershave balm and deodorant that helps the scent linger throughout the day.

For the gin enthusiast: If its spirits that your dad enjoys, Aviation Gin, owned by Hollywood’s own Ryan Reynolds, is a fantastic gift. Available at liquor stores nationwide.

For the well-stocked shower: If he appreciates an aesthetically pleasing countertop or shower stall, not to mention skincare and body products with the latest ingredients but minimal fuss, introduce him to Nécessaire. In particular, the hip brand’s Eycalytus products impart a fresh, upbeat but not overwhelming scent and the body exfoliator makes short work of hard dry patches of skin.

For the coffee addict: Take your dad’s tastebuds on a trip to Italy with Nespresso’s delicious Ispirazione Italiana range, featuring distinctly aromatic flavours inspired by the regions of Italy. Make the gift even more special by pairing it with a decadent panna cotta, a recipe developed by acclaimed chef Ben Bayly exclusively for Nespresso.

For the reader: Whether its delicious recipes, thought-provoking stories or inspiration design content, a subscription to MiNDFOOD, INSEASON or STYLE is a great fit for the dad who likes to read (and easy as a last-minute idea!)
