Reward dear old dad with a thoughtful gift this Father’s Day. Whether he’s a stylish gentlemen, a whisky connoisseur, a watch lover or gastronome, he’s guaranteed to love something on this list.
Give him something to flaunt
Giorgio Armani’s latest collection of pieces feature understated backpacks, t-shirts, shoes and a range of accessories. These designer pieces are stylish with just the right amount of flash to give dad something sleek to wear or carry on the weekends.
Treat him to a fantastic meal
Nobu Kuala Lumpur has reopened for business after the announcement of the Conditional Movement Control Order last month. To celebrate, the Japanese-Peruvian restaurant is offering a special two-for-one on their signature six-course omakase menu (RM388++) until July 15, featuring delicacies such as grilled tenderloin with Nobu sauces, their famous black cod with miso and a chocolate bento box with green tea ice-cream.
Spark his intellectuality
If your father is a Star Wars fan, Royal Selangor’s chess set (RM6500) tribute to the original trilogy is the perfect gift. The set comes with a chessboard of tempered glass, capped by satin finish pewter feet, and beautifully sculpted Rebel Alliance and Imperial forces pewter figurines. Alternatively, a personalised hip flask will give him an excuse to take quality Scotch with him on his travels. As an added incentive, Royal Selangor is also offering a 15 per cent discount on a selected range of items for Father’s Day.
Get him a bottle of fine Scotch whisky
Speaking of Scotch whisky, a bottle of The Macallan Rare Cask (RM1,288.00) will put a smile on dad’s face. The whisky is lauded for its mix of vanilla and summer fruits on the nose as well as its full and warming finish. Pick up a bottle, share it with him and we promise doing so will give you a great bonding session.
Let him and mum have a fancy staycation
Send dad and mum away during the Father’s Day weekend to unwind at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur with the hotel’s “A Timeless Colonial Escape” package. This limited time offer allows you to book a room and automatically upgrades it to a stay at the hotel’s iconic Majestic Wing (RM315 per night), complete with the flexibility to determine your check-in and check-out time and complimentary breakfast served to your room.
Buy him some bling
Van Cleef & Arpels’ clean and stylish men’s timepieces and accessories make for great gifts. The Alhambra cufflinks in white gold and onyx (RM22,700) adds elegance to any dinner shirt, while the Perlée signature bracelet in white gold (RM26,500) imparts a distinctly modern look. The maison’s Pierre Arpels watch (RM102,100) epitomises masculine elegance, taking an iconic design and giving it a new look with the use of platinum, a black lacquered dial with a honeycomb motif and a sleek matte black alligator leather bracelet.
Gift him this handsome timepiece
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s striking new Memovox timepieces are quite the lookers. The first model, Master Control Memovox (RM48,700), gives the classic 1950 Memovox a new modern look with the aid of a silvery sunray-brushed dial with its combination of alarm and date display. The elongated triangular shaped indexes, a signature of the mid-century Memovox models, is accentuated by the Dauphine hands and a blue seconds hand to add a subtle pop of colour. The Master Control Memovox Timer (RM66,000) on the other hand, features more functionality in the form of a world time-zone indicator, a parking meter reminder and a timer feature that enables the owner to set the alarm based on the number of hours that should elapse before the alarm rings. The 250-piece limited edition watch’s dial is laid out in concentric rings, in two shades of blue with a sunray finish, complemented by an inner ring engraved in bas-relief with polished numerals. On this inner ring, the elapsed hours-until-alarm are indicated by a small hand tipped with a red JL logo.
