BUGG comes with a wide range of stylish and durable accessories; including a robust trolley, baking dish and roast holder, protective cover, carry bag and pizza stone and retails from £275.

For dads who love to play the host and show off their culinary skills to family and friends, opt for one of BeefEater’s aptly named Mates for Life Range, the Discovery 1100e Series 4 Burner is a favourite - tough, sleek and durable, it is a stylish addition to any garden, patio or decking. Complete with a porcelain enamel hood, sturdy powder coated steel trolley, optional basket and easy clean prep area, your dad will be ready to fire up the grill at the drop of a hat. Retails from £899.

*Created by perfumer Alienor Massenet, Grigioperla NERO takes inspiration from the classic Grigioperla Cologne with an unmistakably modern citrus-woody distinction.

Grigioperla NERO is a fresh yet sensual fragrance, subtly infused with the raw strength of Natural Wood.

It retails at £35 for 30ml, £48 for 100ml and £35 for 100ml Aftershave Lotion, and is available from John Lewis.

*If you really want to treat your Dad this Father’s Day then why not do it in style, with The Macallan 1824 Series. Your Dad will be able to indulge in distinctive and desirable whisky, matured in 100% oak sherry casks, boasting beautiful natural colours.

Newly launched, The 1824 Series will be an eye catching addition to any Dad’s drinks cabinet.

The whiskys include Macallan Gold, Macallan Amber, Highland Park Loki, Laphroaig Quarter Cask, and more.

*Why not kick start your Dad’s day by treating him to the ultimate kitchen gadget and Italy’s favourite coffee, Lavazza?

The newest addition to the Lavazza A Modo Mio range is the Favola Cappuccino which is perfect for any ‘Padre’ who enjoys creamy cappuccinos and lattes. This brand new model uses Lavazza’s quality espresso extracton technology together with AEG’s new and innovative two-button milk frothing system to create perfectly frothed hot or cold milk at the touch of a button.

The A Modo Mio Favola Cappuccino’s fuss-free functionality makes it so easy to use that your dad is guaranteed to be able to whip up café-style coffees and impress his friends every time.

If your Dad fancies himself more as a skilled barista, then the Lavazza Favola Plus is the machine for him. It combines the same Lavazza espresso extraction technology, but incorporates an integrated steam arm which can be used to heat and foam fresh milk.
