Who’s Your Daddy?

He may not have been Brad Pitt but he was your super man.  He patiently tried to teach you to play ball while your mind was hopelessly devoted to Barbie. He thought your band was better than the Beatles and because of him, you had no idea what an ATM was until college.  It’s time to give props to pops…

Top of the Pops
He’s larger than life, with a heart of gold. For the Dad that deserves it all, head to the Mandarin Oriental for an exclusive lunch in The Krug Room, a spin around the city in an Aston Martin and even a stay in the ultra-luxe Presidential suite (2132 0188). Spoil him with an IWC Ingenieur Chronograph watch, the epitome of functionality, style, and durability (HK$56,000, IWC Boutique, Shop G29, Prince’s Building, 2532 7693).  Help him to capture the whole experience with a Minox DCC Leica M3 4.0 digital camera (Lane Crawford, IFC, 2118 7683).  Only the best for Daddy Dearest!

Big Daddy
He’s your macho, macho man! Treat him to a hearty 4-course dinner at The Steak House including four choices of Beef or Chilean Sea Bass for main and a Chocolate Cake “Cigar” for dessert, plus a gift of Bvlgari after-shave (HK$838 pp, InterContinental, 2313 2323).  Let the king of the grill, replicate the gourmet meal at home with a Weber Q 120 Portable Propane Barbecue (US$149.00, http://www.amazon.com).  Or coax out the kid in him, with the latest interactive video games on the Nintendo Wii (HK$3980, DG LifeStyle, Shop 2012, IFC, 2295 4488).

The Godfather
Make him an offer he can’t refuse!  Take Dad to Grissini this Sunday for a sophisticated lunch buffet showcasing authentic Italian fare, homemade pasta, sensational sweet treats, plus a complimentary glass of sparkling wine (Adult HK$470 / Child $300, Grand Hyatt, 2588 1234).  Help him to update his look and step out in style in black and white Boo Ban trainers from Zegna (HK$3,200, Shop 2036, IFC, 2295 0828).  Have him clean up his act with a travel kit from The Art of Shaving (HK$ 900, Lane Crawford, IFC, 2118 7683) or give him a place to store his secrets with a leather journal from Smythson of Bond Street (Harvey Nichols, 3695 3388).

Papa-razzi
He may be getting a little bit vain in his old age, but it’s okay, you get to share all his beauty products! Help him look picture perfect with a 4-hour wellness programme at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental combining fitness with relaxation, including a personal training session, a tranquil heat experience and a 60-minute Swedish massage (HK$1180, 2312 0188). With Dad looking primped and buffed, he’ll be ready to dazzle the crowd at Caprice. And he’ll be sure to attract attention in Hong Kong’s only Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster, complimentary when dining at Caprice on Father’s Day (Four Seasons Hotel, 3196 8888). As a gift, get him an Ascent Vertu luxury hand crafted mobile phone in Titanium, the perfect accessory for Mr. Man About Town (HK$39,000, Lane Crawford, IFC, 2118 7683).

Happy Father’s Day!
