Fingerprint cufflinks from Smallprint Dubai
A gift that is both useful and sentimental gets a big tick from us, which is why we love the cufflinks made by the company Smallprint Dubai. After arranging an appointment for imprints of your child’s fingerprints, they will create polished silver cufflinks so that Daddy is reminded of his brood in those board meetings!
From Dhs550. Order by calling 055 445 7925 or through Facebook Page www.facebook.com/smallprint.dubai
Matching Daddy and Son Swimshorts from DXBeach
If you spend your weekends on the beach, why not treat Dad to a pair of stylish, Dubai-inspired swim shorts (with a matching pair for his mini me!) We love the designs by company DXBeach, with prints including Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Camels, and Palm Jumeirah.
Summer Membership at Arabian Ranches Golf Club
If he loves golf enough to keep going through the steamy summer months, he will definitely appreciate a Summer Membership to Arabian Ranches Golf Club. Sign him up this month and he’ll be able to play until the end of September, with unlimited rounds of golf, complimentary shared cart, free driving range access, special dining discounts, and discounted lessons to polish his skills.
