With June 19th creeping up on us, what do you get for the man that already has everything, including the greatest children? We’ve put together a definitive list of quality gift ideas to ensure that the main man is looked after on what he probably considers the most important day of the year.
Forget garish novelty items or 5-packs from a sports shop; buying a proper pair of British-made socks is a thoughtful and luxurious gift. Contrary to popular belief, blokes always appreciate socks as presents, and having a pair that is made to last longer than a few months is an added bonus, along with adding a touch of class to outfits.
Depending on how adventurous your old man is, we offer the full spectrum from classic block colours to bold statement socks and timeless patterns, all made in the UK from the finest cottons and wools.
For something that is made specifically to keep your trousers from falling down, it makes sense that a good quality belt is worth the money. Additionally, a well-made leather or suede belt has an uncanny ability to bring an outfit together.
If he has good taste and already has a pair of Cheaney shoes, a belt in the matching leather would certainly make him very happy and is sure to get good use. If he is yet to foray into footwear from us, a classic black or mocha belt is a safe option – alternatively, our grain belts offer a dressed-down alternative if he dresses casually.
All of our belts are made in England using the same leathers as our shoes, ensuring quality and longevity.
For a man on the move, our Travel Shoe Care Kit contains all the basics that someone would need to look after their shoes including polishes, brushes, a shoe horn and a polishing cloth, all encased in a chic embossed leather bag.
For extra grandeur, our wooden Valet Box is the ultimate in shoe care. Housed in polished wood, this kit contains more options in terms of polishes and also contains spare shoe bags alongside all the necessary equipment.
When investing in a good pair of shoes, the added financial hit of shoe trees can be a little too much for some. How about bribing your way into your dad’s good books by gifting him some of our full-block beechwood shoe trees? Made specific to size, this could be your contribution to making sure his shoes look as good as possible for as long as possible. They’re arguably the most important piece of aftercare available and a great gift for any shoe-lover.
Shoe horns represent a practical and elegant choice for a gift: crafted from non-endangered horn here in the UK, each item is individual in its appearance and makes putting on your shoes quick and easy, as well as protecting the back linings of the shoe. As they are made from such high-quality material, a good shoe horn can last for decades.
Let’s face it: sometimes, it can be hard to know exactly what to buy someone. By using our easy gift voucher form, you’ll be certain that the recipient will end up with exactly what they’re looking for, whether it’s accessories or money off a pair of shoes. You have the freedom to pay exactly what you’d like and the voucher is emailed to the lucky receiver on the day of your choosing; the perfect choice if you’ve left it a little too late to have something delivered!
As always, our staff are happy to help in-store or via our website and can help you to choose the perfect gift this Father’s Day.
