Whether he considers himself king of the BBQ or the master of the drinks cabinet, we’ve handpicked the best food and drinks gifts to spoil him with this Father’s Day.

The most unique gift for dads who know their wines.

Cuvée Privée Experience

Sure, a bottle of his favourite grape is a nice enough gift, even up the ante with some Champagne, but we’ve found a present that will excite any wannabe sommelier dads out there.

Enter Cuvée Privée and their unique wine experience which allows you to adopt a vine in a prestigious French vineyard and gift someone with their own vintage, from that very vine to a personalised bottle to their door.

Order in time for 21st June and he will receive a welcome pack and a bottle from the domain of your choice – and this is where the fun begins. He’ll be able to watch his wine’s journey, from harvesting to bottling thanks to regular updates from the producer. Plus, he’ll be invited to organise a trip to France to meet the makers themselves and see the vines labelled up with his own name. Given that weekends away or even family lunches our are off the cards this Father’s Day, it will be a lovely gift to look forward to.

Dad will also receive six personalised bottles of the next vintage, as well as monthly newsletters and updates.

One year of adoption ranges in price from £120 to £870, depending on the type of wine. Find out more at

Rémy Martin Father’s Day Hampers

Marmalade needn’t ben reserved for your morning toast. If your dad is a fan of the zesty preserve he’ll love this gin. And the best bit? The dry, citrusy gin will wow him with a pure magic colour-changing moment. When mixed with regular tonic water, the gin will change from a cool blue to a subtle rose pink. Drinks in the garden just got a whole lot more fun.
