Daddy Bears rejoice! Your annual day off is approaching…
But it can be tough to choose the right gift for the grizzly in your life. What do you buy the man you call on to have the things you don’t? From power tools to spare tyres and everything in between, if you don’t have one, Dad will!
That’s probably why the simplest gifts have remained staples of Father’s Day giving.
Designer boxers he would never buy himself, classic socks to replace the ones with the hole at the toe, a swish new tie or a dapper bag for work…
Father’s Day is the day to say thanks with a special something for a truly dapper dad.
At Utility Bear we specialise in dapper, and designer, and we’ve listed our favourites from underwear and socks to loungewear and accessories, fit for any super dad:
Calvin Klein Boxers
A certain singer you’ve maybe heard of – goes by the name of Bieber – recently joined the Calvin Klein crew and made their latest take on the classic brief an instant sellout. The Calvin Klein Intense Power Trunk is crafted from a stretchy cotton with the same high-quality design and structure that will keep its shape and function over time.
The “Blue Shadow” is particularly striking and the waistband comes emblazoned with the traditional stamped Calvin Klein logo bringing style and cool kudos to any underwear drawer.
Tommy Hilfiger Socks
Socks are still the most popular gift of choice for dad’s at Christmas, birthdays and on Father’s Day. And that’s good because Dads are often so busy running around helping the rest of the family that they don’t look after the basics themselves – just check how many pairs he has with holes in them!
But it can still be hard to strike the balance between good socks and grizzly socks. Funny motifs and days of the week probably fall into the grizzly category. Good socks, for us bears, would be classic styled, high-quality, designer socks that will last. Socks Dad can wear under a suit or jeans and be proud of!
Presented in an impressive gift tin, these cotton rich socks from Tommy Hilfiger are the perfect gift. They feature two plain and two striped pairs in four different colours. Available in UK 6-8(EU 39-42) or UK 9-11(EU 43-46) at just £20.89
Jockey Printed Swim Shorts
Maybe Dad’s going on holiday and you’re worried about him embarrassing you at the beach with his favourite pair of budgie smugglers from the 1980s that make him look like an extra in a George Michael video?
Or perhaps you just want to help him keep up to date with the latest swimwear style so he can look the part poolside, with a helpful nudge in the right direction.
Well that nudge comes in the form of the latest range of Jockey printed swim shorts for Spring/Summer 2016 (£29.16)
These black and white beauties are from the Jockey® USA Originals collection and come with the type of practical product perks Dads love – elasticated waistband, internal drawcord, mesh lining, two front pockets (and hip pocket with velcro fastening!)
Men’s Long Pyjama Set
If Father’s Day is a Sunday for Dad to lounge around, not cutting grass, not building furniture and definitely not fixing anything, then he will most likely appreciate some superior comfort to make the lounging feel even lovelier.
For designer fit and comfort, look no further than the Jockey cotton long pyjama sets, like these “Down the Gym” check pyjamas for £25.00.
100% Cotton with a long sleeved round neck top and long pyjama pants with elasticated waistband, button fly and side pockets; Dad will be living it up in front of the telly in this cool kit.
British Bag Company Tweed Holdall Bag
If your Daddy Bear is far too dapper for pyjamas, then the Harris Tweed Holdall from the British Bag Company is the touch of class he needs to add to his wardrobe collection.
At £70.82, the Harris Tweed is popular worldwide for good reason. Genuine Harris Tweed facing is 100% wool, hand woven in the Outer Hebrides!
The internal zipped pocket an external document pouch make it perfect for working dads, professional dads, travelling dads and dads who appreciate a little style in among the chaos of family life.
