Where would we be without good old dad? Fathers have a special place in our heart, earned a thousand times over with affectionate gestures, overly enthusiastic pep talks and general awesomeness.

Each year, we put aside a day to honour and thank our hardworking, much-loved fathers for everything they’ve done over the years. If you’ve been scratching your head about how to spoil dad this year, whether it’s your own pops or you’re buying something on behalf of your little ones, Showcase Jewellers is here to help.

So it’s out with the boxers and chocolate and in with a meaningful gift your dad can cherish for years to come.

Don’t let time slip away from you 

A watch is, if you’ll excuse the pun, a timeless gift for dad. It’s something that he can wear everyday, and is an accessory that is both stylish and practical. Something like the Mizzano Workmans Watch is built to last, with 100-metre water resistance, quartz movements and a rugged stainless steel structure that can handle whatever your dad can throw at it.

In contrast, if your father already has an everyday watch, why not plump for something a little more dressy, such as the classic style of a chronograph watch? With a brown leather strap and the brassy veneer of rose gold plating, this timepiece has a hint of nostalgia about it, and a good helping of sophistication.

Accessorising dad 

Just because he’s dad, doesn’t mean he can’t pull off some of the latest trends in men’s accessories and jewellery. Men’s bracelets add a personal touch to any outfit without going overboard, such as this stainless steel mesh example or this polished link bracelet.

Cufflinks are a great way to spruce up your dad’s shirts, whether they’re sporting a brushed stainless steel or an onyx affair.

Last but not least, you can top it all off with some quality time with your dad – whether it’s a laid​ back lunch or a day fishing, he’ll love the effort you make to spend time with him on his special day.

Give your dad a gift he can cherish for years to come.
