Where would we be without the dads, the step dads and the men who stepped up to the mark when a tire needed to be fixed? While this may seem like a rhetorical question, the answer is: not very far. From teaching us how to ride a bike, drive a car and give a hard and slightly intimidating handshake, to perhaps the more meaningful moments that can't be boiled down to a single action. Showing us unconditional love and support, holding our hands when the going gets rough and being at the top of our dial list in emergencies (and not), dads are the best.
Mark your calendars, 4th September is fast-approaching! Show some love and appreciation for the father figure in your life with some of our top picks. From fragrance-focused dads and dads who love a good gadget, to dads who enjoy the simpler things in life, like an icy cold one after a long day - there's a present for every pa this coming dad day. So, if you’re lost on ideas or need a bit of gifting inspo, read below for Remix’s 2022 Father’s Day Gift Guide. You’re welcome!
