As we rush through our day-to-day lives, it can be difficult to remember to appreciate the things that mean the most to us, our family among them. Of course, there is one day a year set aside for the express purpose of celebrating and appreciating one very important figure in the lives of many - fathers.
A guiding hand on our backs throughout childhood who continues to provide love and support through later life, father figures deserve recognition for their dedication and efforts. This year, make sure to surprise him with a gift he’ll be able to treasure for years to come.
Whether he’s your dad, father, step-dad, grandad, grandpa or anything else, get him something special that he’ll love with Barbour’s Father’s Day gift guide for 2021.
The Classic Barbour Jacket
Father’s Day may take place in June but we all know how temperamental the British weather can be, even in the summertime. With a classic waxed jacket from Barbour, he’ll be protected from sudden cold spells through the summer months, the following cold seasons and, thanks to the incredible durability and longevity of Barbour’s premium jackets, many, many seasons after that too!
With so many stunning coats to choose from in the Barbour collection, it can be hard to pick the perfect jacket, especially when buying for someone else. Fortunately, you can’t go far wrong with the Barbour lightweight Royston waxed cotton jacket. Stylish and practical, the Barbour Royston waxed jacket is treated with a special blend of waxes and oils that give it its signature look, while also providing protection against wind and rain. Unlike others in the Barbour range, the Royston waxed jacket features a cotton ribbed hem and sleeve cuffs, creating a relaxed, sporty fit that suits any man.
Go one step further this Father’s Day by ensuring he has everything to care for his new jacket with Barbour’s thornproof dressing. Designed to increase the lifespan of Barbour waxed jackets, the wax thornproof dressing can be applied to spots of wear for a quick fix-up or to the entire jacket.
A Barbour Sweater
You’ll know your dad better than almost anyone and, if he’s the type to prefer a lighter layer than a jacket to keep warm on chilly days, the collection of Barbour jumpers and sweaters could be the perfect place to start your search. Whether his most worn jumper is in need of an update, or he’s always on the lookout for new cardigans, we have some top picks that are sure to make his day.
For dads that are constantly hard to choose for, the simple yet stylish Abhainn zip through sweater and Tain half zip jumper make excellent gifts. Both made from 100% cotton for a super soft feel and featuring the same Barbour branded ring pull zipper, the Tain and Abhainn sweaters are both available in a navy colourway, while the Tain also comes in a soft grey marl.
Barbour T-Shirts and Tops
Hoping to get some stylish clothing for him that’ll be perfect for everyday wear throughout the seasons? The collection of shirts, tees and tops at Barbour has a vast range of styles and fits available and is the perfect place to start searching for that Father’s Day gift.
Not sure which shirt to look for? We recommend shopping by style to make sure you get him something you’re confident he’ll love. If he's always in a fitted shirt, why not look at the Barbour tartan 7 tailored shirt? Not too formal thanks to the popular tartan pattern, this classic tailored shirt is available in two colourways and features Barbour branding on the top chest pocket. Alternatively, the Barbour crest panel rugby shirt makes the perfect gift for sporty dads. Long sleeved with a contrast collar, the Barbour rugby shirt is made from 100% cotton for comfort and features an embroidered Barbour crest on the chest.
If you’re still unsure which option your dad would like for Father’s Day, Barbour’s preppy t-shirt is an easy win and, with a price of only £29.95, it's one of the most affordable gift suggestions in our guide. Available in a range of colourways to suit his preferred style, this simple Barbour tee features a branded graphic on the left chest, a crew neckline and short sleeves.
Barbour Men’s Accessories
Sometimes, the best Father’s Day gift isn’t the biggest, most expensive present you can find, but something you know he needs. In the collection of Barbour accessories for men, you’ll find everything from a replacement for that belt he lost last year to a stock replenishment for the socks he’s managed to poke holes through.
A classic Father’s Day present that never fails to impress, the Barbour leather wallet and card holder gift set is stylish and practical. Crafted from premium leather, this gift set features a Barbour signature tartan lining and even comes presented in a branded gift box for that little something extra. Alternatively, we would also recommend considering the Barbour cascade sports cap. Available in twelve different colourways including classic navy, white and olive, this simple sport cap is ideal for summer and is a favourite of dads everywhere.
