No matter who you are, how old your dad is and what his specific interests are, we’d hazard a guess that a food gift will hit the mark on Father’s Day. An edible or potable present is a fail safe gift idea that leaves no waste, doesn’t clutter up the house and (if he’s in a sharing mood) satisfies the whole family.
How ever lovely a leather wallet, tailored shirt or pair of stylish sunglasses may be, the chances are your dad won’t need more than one. But do you know what is always in demand? Food.
Luckily there are myriad ways to indulge your father on this special day of celebration and we are here to provide more than a little inspiration. In pursuit of the ultimate Father’s Day gift, we have scoured the internet and all our favorite gifting haunts for the best gadgets, subscription boxes and foodie gifts for dad, whether he’s a discerning eater or an indiscriminate one.
Best Father’s Day gifts for foodies
A poor workman blames his tools, so make sure your dad has no excuses come June 19th.
Our Place’s Everyday Chef’s Knife was every bit as revolutionary as their trendy Always Pan when it first came onto the scene. With the same do-it-all attitude, this knife can dice, slice, mince and more with an ultra sharp blade made from German steel. The handle is grooved, to move your hand into the best position. Our Place can never be said to miss an ergonomic trick.
This Florentine Chef Knife is one of the best in the business, featuring Florentine Kitchen Knives original design, oval curved handle and customisable stacked discs that make up the handle. You can choose from as many handle colours as your heart desires, so whether your dad is a maximalist or a minimalist, there’s a style for him.
From subscriptions that suit simple stovetop coffee makers, to full blown bean deliveries, there’s a subscription to suit every dad, there to make sure he never misses his morning coffee again.
Pact Coffee started out in 2021 when Stephan Rapoport decided to cut out the middle men of the coffee industry and build direct relationships with coffee farmers. The entire ethos is to pay the farmers ‘premium prices for premium coffee’, solidified by Pact’s pledge to always pay 25% above the Fairtrade base price. A 250g bag of whole beans delivered monthly will cost around £9.95.
Back in the day Grind was just a coffee shop in Shoreditch. It’s grown into a huge business which encompasses espresso bars, restaurants, cocktail bars, a recording studio, and a state-of-the-art coffee roastery. Their subscription service offers carbon-positive refills and can be filtered to include compostable Nespresso pods, ground coffee or whole bean coffee. 2 x 227g bag of whole beans delivered every three weeks will cost around £13.50.
No one has ever been disappointed with a hamper full of delicious delights.
You simply can’t go wrong with a Fortnum’s Hamper and the Foodhall special is our pick of the bunch. The famed British department store has served up everything dad could want, from Scottish smoked salmon to a cave aged cheddar wedge, from a mini orange ham with monarch marmalade to an Argentinian Malbec, all packaged in a stylish wicker basket.
For a less dear present, we think Cartwright and Butler have hit the spot. Their Beer and Nibbles gift box can be personalised with your dad’s name, or simply ‘Happy Father’s Day’, which makes for a nice thoughtful touch. Inside the hamper you’ll find gouda cheese melt bits, caramelised onion chutney, sea salted toffee in a tin, other sweet treats, and a bottle of Black Sheep Milk Stout to wash it down with.
Give your dad the gift of inspiration and guidance from some of the world’s best loved chefs.
Berber & Q’s latest cookbook is all based the message that ‘eating vegetables doesn’t need to be boring.’ Inside the book you’ll find countless ways to grill, roast, marinade and flash fry vegetables, all inspired by Josh Katz’ travels from London to North Africa, all the way to the Middle East.
Released earlier this year, Atul Kochhar’s new cookbook contains over 100 simple vegetarian recipes. Travelling from country to country, the book moves from Cambodian Mango curry to Algerian masala chips and Japanese shakshuka. It’s a real gastronomic journey that every father would enjoy receiving on this special day.
Whether your dad fancies himself a good chef or not, he’s bound to achieve the perfect pizza with one of these pizza ovens.
The Ooni Karu is powered by both wood and charcoal, promising to cook a 12-inch stone-baked pizza in just sixty seconds. You don’t need to be an expert to use it and, at just 12kg, it’s endlessly portable for camping trips and road trips alike.
