Daddy Cool…Four Ways To Wow The Paterfamilias This Father’s Day

Fathers are notoriously tricky customers when it comes to gift lavishing. None of the old trusties – flowers, chocolates, jewellery – cut the mustard with the discerning paterfamilias (the ingrates). But fret not. You’ve still got ten days until the 15th (yeah, we know a few of you would’ve missed it, you can thank us later) and Corner is here, like the Hermes of presents, to deliver some divine gift inspiration. Here’s how to stack up brownie points with the old man in style:

Don’t stop the music! This awesome vintage Katone radio dates back to the 1970s and can be used with batteries or mains. Perfect for those daddy cools.


Pedlars, 128 Talbot Rd, London W11 1JA,






Intrepid (and sweet-toothed) padres will love this toffee, which comes complete with a REAL edible scorpion. Bred in Chinese scorpion farms, they’re totally safe for human consumption. Do you dare?


Selfridges, 400 Oxford Street, W1A 1AB,






Fancy dads will love this limited-edition Louise and Zaid linen and wool bow tie. It has an adjustable neck strap so one size fits all…


Wolf and Badger, 46 Ledbury Road, W11 2AB,



This Mason Shaker gift set is all your father will ever need to craft some perfect cocktails… (or perhaps it’s all he’ll ever need to get you to make him the perfect cocktail). Either way, this is the stylish way to shake up a sensation.
