Veuve Clicquot, Extra Brut, Extra Old

Extra Brut, Extra Old £69.00 copy

Veuve Clicquot’s limited edition bottle – an entirely new auteur wine called Extra Brut, Extra Old – is a premium cuvee blended exclusively from precious wine reserves. Six different vintages – all aged for at least three years in vats, and a further three in bottle – make up this fresh and delicate wine. Extra Brut, Extra Old wears its Veuve Clicquot livery in a different way – the label is black – and the bottle makes a handsome gift. We particularly like this gift for the Fathers and Godfathers in our life who are themselves extra brut and extra old; that is to say, likely to be found at Brüt Saturdays in Vauxhall, and “daddies” in both senses of the word.

Extra Brut Extra Old £79 is available at Selfridges and Harrods and online here

Hotel Molitor

Hotel Molitor

Hotel Molitor in the 16th arondissement of Paris is well known as the chic and sportif place to stay built around the Piscine Molitor: the legendary swimming pool that employed Johnny Weissmuller as a lifeguard, presented the bikini to a scandalised audience in 1946, and gave its name to the eponomymous hero of Yann Martel’s Booker Prize winning novel Life of Pi. A public pool when built, it fell into disuse and disrepair in the 1980s, when it enjoyed a second, informal incarnation as a mecca for Parisian graffiti artists, before being sold by the city and becoming an hotel.

Hotel Molitor have honoured the history of the pool in their sensitive restoration of this site: the outdoor pool is the heart of the hotel, with rooms surrounding and overlooking it; behind the cobalt blue doors of the changing cabins that ring the pool you will find unique street art; and the former lifeguard’s quarters has been re-purposed as a working and exhibition space for featured artists.

The rooftop terrace is the perfect venue to spend an evening dining, drinking and enjoying music. An unforgettable vacation experience for adults and children. For Parisian papas, or those that travel to Paris frequently, a membership to Club Molitor allows access to all areas throughout the year.

Le Club De Molitor Annual membership from €3,300 with joining fee of €1,200

Tom Hope

Anchor bracelets are becoming increasingly popular: the designs of Swedish company Tom Hope are our favourite. The simplicity of these keepsakes – made of whipping twine that loops around the wrist and fastens with an anchor – makes them easy to wear, informal pieces. The bracelets are available in different colour combinations, with anchors in 24K gold, rose gold or silver. Comfortable to wear, and understated, it is of course the symbolism that makes them perfect gifts for Father’s Day.

The anchor represents steadfastness, strength and hope: qualities we would all like to have, and often find epitomised in our fathers. For sea-faring fathers these are even more perfect. And of course, you can buy one for your Daddy and one for yourself … if you are part of a large family and like to indulge in competitive gifting to provoke a little sibling rivalry, this would be a sure way to do so.

Tom Hope anchor bracelets from €39 – €66
