How many watches have you gotten your dad? Father’s Day is fast approaching and we know you’re unsure about what to get him. You’re probably thinking the gift should be: made of leather, have a masculine feel to it, dark coloured (obviously!) and definitely, something understated but of high quality. But the thing is, what is this gift that ticks all the boxes? Ah, if only a ‘You’re the best dad in the world‘ mug would cut it but no, you can do better. Trust us to guide you on gifts you had not thought of yet but will likely be appreciated. However, let’s not forget the most important gift is a phone call or better yet, visiting him. The devil is in the details.
Who doesn’t love a scenic view? This will be an unforgettable gift for your dad no matter how many times he’s flown. The Maasai Mara is beautiful to view while up from the sky, the same goes for the Mt. Longonot crater. Helicopter ride companies also offer bitings after the trip and you can sit down for some of that wisdom from Papa as you enjoy the nature around you. The Helicopter Charter of East Africa is one company that organizes these rides.
We know you were like, why didn’t I think of this before the Yummy team! Don’t stress, we’re just cool that way. Any driver knows what good wheels mean and getting him a voucher from one of the most trusted tyre companies in the country says a lot. He’ll be glad you thought about his car that he greatly admires and one that has probably driven you and your siblings to and from school several times. Yeah, go on, visit their website for more information here.

A good shave always feels like you’ve been reborn. This is exactly what your dad needs. You can get him a voucher for Refinery Grooming, a men’s only spa and barbershop located at The Village Market, described as the gentleman’s ultimate spot. They have experienced barbers, the mani-pedi is worth every dime and he gets to enjoy that as he watches Netflix. The space is masculine, smells like a million bob and is what every dad will say thank you to. This is one of the many underrated Father’s Day gifts.

The safest option is a gift box if you don’t want to go through deciding what to put in and what to exclude. Get the Avila gift hamper from Purpink Gifts.
A Book..or Two.
Who are your dad’s heroes? Does he have enough stock of their biographies? Books are always a thoughtful gift that appeals to the intelligence of a man and you won’t go wrong with a book on Father’s Day. If you’re going for a coffee table book, then ensure the photography feels richly masculine; wildlife, racing cars, sportsmen, thought-provoking art… You can get these from bookshops.
Smelling good is a confidence booster and a people magnet. You will need to understand the kind of scents your dad appreciates so that you don’t ever get something he rarely wears. Don’t forget to consider how the cologne reacts with the weather.
