With Fathers Day This Week, it’s your chance to ensure that dad gets the recognition he needs (especially if he’s holding the fort while you and the kids jet off for summer).
We’ve rounded up the best gifts in fashion, beauty, tech and more, so get shopping or booking mamas and make papa feel special!
Some Sleep (Kind of…)
I ♡ BABA at Robinsons Department Store
What to give the man who has EVERYTHING – except maybe enough sleep now that the kiddos insist on sharing your bed?! We know just the thing – some gorgeous bed linen with complimentary bespoke embroidery – because if there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to help him catch a few zzzs it’s a new set of cool sheets to slip between (and a memo to the kids that a good 8 hours would be much appreciated!). Or maybe he’d like his own personalised towels to make his bathroom corner that much cooler (or as the ultimate gym bag accessory?). Super duper department store Robinsons is offering complimentary emroidering on all bed and bath linen over AED 100 until June 24th. And If dad’s into grooming (or if he needs a bit of a helping hand and a step away from soap and water) then a free one-to-one expert consultation with Tom Ford beauty is a perfect choice. Whatever your papa is into, the Robinsons Department Store I ♡ BABA selection is guaranteed to make him happy this Father’s Day.
