What to Buy the Dad Who Has Everything

What to Buy the Dad Who Has Everything

Dads are notoriously hard to buy for. They never seem to be direct with what they want even at the best of times. But the real question is, what are you supposed to buy the dad who already has everything? After all, there are only so many Jaffa Cake yards you can give him before he catches on that it’s your go-to gift idea. This year is the perfect time to branch out of your comfort zone and look more towards the niche end of the spectrum. But don’t worry, we have done some thinking outside the box for you and have compiled some ideas for what to buy the dad who has everything. 

What to Buy the Dad Who Has Everything: The Complete Guide

What to Buy the Dad Who Has Everything

Garmin QuickFit® 20 Bungee Mount Strap Only 010-13249-00

There is a range of different Garmin accessories on offer, from a running dynamics pod to replacement straps for each model. However, we can almost guarantee that your dad doesn’t have one of these (unless he really loves niche watch accessories). For dads outside of this bracket, this Garmin Bungee Mount Strap is an accessory that he will never know he needed. 

It essentially works like a strap, except it’s far more secure. The bungee mount is specifically built for divers, but also is great for outdoorsy dads who want to wear their watches over a large coat. This particular model measures 20mm, however, there are also various others available to fit different types of models. So, make sure you pick the right one for your dad’s specific Garmin. If your dad’s pride and joy is his Garmin, we particularly recommend this gift.

Tommy Hilfiger All Over Th Flag Texture Cufflinks 2790360

Cufflinks are a classic, but an often underrated Christmas present. We particularly like this pair from Tommy Hilfiger for their versatility. Each circular cufflink features a repeating geometric pattern, which on closer look, is actually the brand’s iconic TH logo. Reinforcing this branding, Tommy Hilfiger’s iconic three colours provide bright framing around the edges of each link. Ensuring that they are long-lasting, the set is made from stainless steel, making them perfect for everyday use. 

Polar H-10 HR Sensor Stone Camo Strap 920106244

Another fitness-related piece, you can never go wrong with Polar’s accessories. And for any dads who love to keep on top of their health, this Polar H-10 heart rate sensor is the perfect pick. It’ll help him get an ultra-accurate reading of his heart rate, in turn helping to optimise his workouts. Polar’s H-10 has proven high precision and resistance to interference, making it a particularly standout piece on the market, especially at an incredibly reasonable price point. Thanks to its Bluetooth compatibility, the H-10 automatically sends heart rate data gathered to a smartphone or Polar device for storage. But, if for some reason there isn’t an opportunity to sync the data until later, it’s no sweat. The H-10 sensor comes with additional internal memory which temporarily stores one session’s worth of workout stats, so nothing is lost.

This model is complete with a versatile grey textile camo-print strap, which can be thrown in the washing machine when needed. But, the H-10 also comes in various other colours too, including red, plain black, and even camo print green. As a result, there are ample options to satisfy any dad’s style.

Armani Exchange Men’s Gift Set (44mm) Black Dial / Two Tone Bracelet with Matching Bracelet AX7148SET

For a fashionable dad looking for a quick way into watches, we recommend this Armani Exchange gift set. The set includes two gifts, including a stainless steel fashion bracelet which compliments the main attraction: the watch. 

With its three-subdial arrangement, the black dial is topped with gold-tone baton indices and matching hands. These features are also echoed through the gold-tone bezel, as well as the two-tone stainless steel bracelet. Whilst the AX logo replaces the 12 o’clock hour marker, a rectangular date display sits between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions. Meanwhile, a 44mm stainless steel case pulls the design together and houses a reliable battery-powered quartz movement. If that wasn’t enough, the accompanying fashion bracelet is also stainless steel and features a distinctive link design. When worn alongside the watch as intended, its tone and build complement that of the watch too.

Hamilton Straps Green Brown NATO 20mm – Khaki Field Strap Only H690694104

Has your dad already got a watch that he adores? The best course of action is to give it a mini makeover with a brand-new replacement strap. 

Hamilton is just one of many brands that boast a broad range of various replacement straps. With its military-inspired design, one of our personal favourites is this NATO piece for Hamilton’s Khaki Field collection. Its khaki green colour is in keeping with the vintage feel of the collection, whilst the brown leather detailing adds some contemporary flair to the design. At the back, a pin buckle ensures that it fastens securely to the wrist. 

But, be sure to make sure that whichever strap you pick is compatible with his model to avoid disappointment on Christmas morning.

Time Travel UK Fiji Green Three-watch Watch Roll TT-FIJI

Time Travel’s three-watch roll is perfect for a dad who likes to take his watch collection everywhere. Although there are many different watch rolls on the market, we particularly like this one for its luxurious feel. Made from sumptuous Fiji green Saffiano faux leather, the roll is crafted to withstand wear from travelling. In the event that it does get dirty, the cross-hatched finish on the faux leather also makes it easy to clean. Meanwhile, the interior lining and cushion are the same colour as the exterior, except are made from soft suede. With space for up to three watches, the design of the cushion prevents each piece from knocking against the other to evade the risk of damage.

LONGINES Pilot Majetek ‘Starting Time Indicator’ (43mm) Special Box Set L28384539 / L2.838.4.53.9

Our final suggestion for what to buy the dad who has everything is this indulgent Longines gift set. Although the brand released its Pilot Majetek earlier this year, it still remains one of our favourite luxury gift sets. Inside its beautiful presentation box is one Pilot Majetek watch as well as an additional khaki NATO-style strap. Of course, this is great for someone who is serious about their watches, especially Longines watches.

The watch alone is already incredibly impressive. Within its stainless steel cushion-shaped case is a vintage-inspired matte black dial with applied beige indices and hands. At the 6 o’clock position is a small seconds subdial, which optimises the dial’s legibility. Meanwhile, a fluted bidirectional rotating bezel encircles the design and adds even more military charm to the watch. Mechanically, there is also lots to love about this Majetek. Inside the case is the brand’s L893 automatic movement, which has a power reserve of up to 72 hours. Moreover, with this calibre’s COSC certification, the Majetek boasts impeccable reliability and accuracy.
