That time of the year, where you are struggling to find a gift for the Dad that either has everything, or is just that “difficult-to-buy-for” in every sense of the word. The standard socks or gift cards to his favorite restaurant has been done each year and repetition is setting in. Here are some ideas we put together that will no doubt put you back in the good books.
Our top picks this year:
Mr Porter – one of our favorite sites brings you the Silver Toothpaste Squeezer by Lorenzi Milano
Editor’s Notes from Mr Porter:
The correct way to squeeze the toothpaste tube may be one of the most common domestic disagreements found in the bathroom – only the positioning of the toilet seat can ignite a more heated debate. The answer to your problems, Lorenzi Milano’s chrome-plated squeezer is set on a sturdy Perspex base and rotates to ensure you’ll benefit from every last minty drop. It makes a great gift for the man who has everything.
BERLUTI BEOSOUND SPEAKER
The luxury parisian brand Berluti has teamed up with famed sound maker Bang & Olufsen to create this stylist Beosound speaker perfect addition to any home office or den.
Editor’s notes from Berluti:
Berluti and Danish luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen collaborate for a limited-edition collection of products, celebrating ‘savoir-faire’ and lifestyle. Beosound Balance Berluti Edition Bang & Olufsen’s home speaker is inspired by interior objects to redefine home audio and has a soft cylindrical silhouette featuring a hidden touch interface that lights up when being approached, inviting the user to interact with the speaker. Patinated by hand, Berluti’s Venezia leather is wrapped around the wooden base of Balance, creating a distinct finish and manufactured with Berluti’s artisanal know how. The fabric has a dark knit with a touch of brown to match the leather base which has been embossed with both logos and includes fine stitching around the base’s edge to create a touch of elegance. The top plate and grill come in natural aluminium for a high contrast and exclusive highlight to the darker materials.
RIEDEL LAUDON TUMBLER
Riedel is a supporting partner brand of The Bespoke Corner Tailors, and proudly featured in our Bar areas in both Melbourne and Sydney Boutiques. Most of you have noticed the exquisite quality and design these tumblers offer whilst enjoying your whisky, and they present a perfect gift idea for dad available in a single pack (we suggest you order two to at least enjoy the drink with Dad)
Editor’s notes from Riedel:
These Tumblers are perfect for fine whiskies, cocktails, juices and soft drinks. Highly functional and produced in high-quality crystal, these versatile tumblers are sure to make an impression.The Laudon Whisky Black glass is perfect for bringing a touch of luxury to your home.

LARUSMIANI MILANO MANICURE STAND
Another site we love is Larusmiani Milano offering a host of accessories, and this one stands out for Father’s day.
Editor’s notes from Larusmiani:
The Manicure Stand “Kruger” is inspired by the countless safari adventures in the famous South African National Park. The Manicure Stand is made of meticulously hand-finished Zebu Cow Horn from Madagascar. The Manicure Stand holds two sets of scissor and nail tongs, one nail file- and cleaner made of the finest German Stainless Steel, to bring exotic adventures right in you and your partner’s bathroom.
GEORGE CLEVERLEY ALLIGATOR WALLET
George Cleverley has been a much loved shoe-maker of our for a long time – and their leather goods accessories offer us more reason to love them a little more than yesterday. Try this wallet as a gift for Dad.
Editor’s notes from George Cleverley:
George Cleverley’s bi-fold cardholder comes in alligator-leather that will disguise light marks or scuffs, so it’s ideal for day-to-day use. It has six card slots and a burgundy kid lining.
One of our favourites to burn in the Boutique is Roja’s Musk Aoud. A great masculine scent that is not overpowering and perfect for the office or home. Available through our Online Boutique.
Editor’s notes from Libertine Perfumerie
A rich and sensual base of Tonka Bean and Ambrette fused with leather-like Labdanum heightens the aphrodisiacal nature of one of perfumery’s most legendary materials – Musk. Totally unexpected and yet utterly compulsive, Musk Aoud pays homage to tradition whilst creating its own distinct path forward.
THE BESPOKE CORNER POLO SHIRT
The first delivery of our Polo shirt sold out in the first week, in both Sydney and Melbourne Boutique. The luxurious and classic style offers either a Cashmere Silk or Soft Knitted Wool as options will prove to be the most comfortable Polo shirt in your wardrobe, available in various colours and in set size. Larger than life Dad’s can opt for made-to-order to ensure perfect fit with a 3-4 week turn around.
Editor’s notes from our Online team:
The Cashmere-Silk short sleeve polo, is a triumph of comfort and style, from its ribbed polo collar to the mother-of-pearl buttons. Made in Italy
Hope these few ideas make Father’s Day shopping a little easier..
