Chances are the father figure in your life doesn’t do as much for himself as he does for you. We’ve put together a stellar collection of gifts for dad (though we won’t fault you if you earmark a few of these for yourself!) to remind him that he deserves nothing but the best. Whether his idea of the perfect gift is a sophisticated chess set, an eye-catching timepiece or a fresh scent for summer, we’ve pooled all the best gifts for all the best dads. To get inspired (and prepare to add to cart), scroll along to see what’s in store now at Bal Harbour Shops.
This one’s for the dad that’s always up for a challenge and trying something new. Allow him to throw himself into the world of chess with James Perse’s teak chess board, or help him work on his poker face with Tiffany & Co.’s travel poker set. Have a sporty side? Fendi’s skateboard from its 2021 Vertigo capsule, which it crafted in collaboration with artist Sarah Coleman, is a must-grab.
Many dads’ definition of a cool toy is some sparkling new wrist candy — which Bal Harbour Shops has plenty of. Go with Richard Mille’s all-new RM 74-02 model to show him you’ve been keeping up with your watch-world know-how. Jacob & Co.’s Astronomia Casino timepiece is as awe-inspiring as they come, continuing its reign as the only watch in the world that has a working roulette wheel.
Add some polished suiting to his rotation this Father’s Day with tailored-to-perfection options from Brioni, Brunello Cucinelli and more. For a Summer Fridays-ready look, go with Kiton’s checked blazer and denim trousers — or keep things prim and proper with Cesare Attolini’s full suit, dress shirt and tie from its Spring/Summer 2021 collection.
BEST FOOT FORWARD
Help him kick off summer on the right foot with a new pair of shoes. Whether his taste leans more toward leisure—don’t overlook Santoni’s croc-effect loafers—or sporty, which a classic Prada nylon sneaker or Saint Laurent’s multi-color mid-tops can fulfill, we’re here to help Dad stay grounded in style.
For the grooming aficionado, grab him some luxe bath products from Santa Maria Novella, Acqua di Parma and Le Labo — and finish setting the tone with diptyque’s lusciously fragrant candles and parfums. If cozy is his favorite style, you can’t go wrong with Loro Piana’s suede slippers, and Dolce & Gabbana’s silk robe.
