    Finding the right Father’s Day gift is a deeply personal undertaking. You want something that matches Dad’s tastes and interests – bonus points if it reminds him of a special memory or inside joke, or is something that the two of you can enjoy together. That said, there's nothing in the rulebook that says you can’t ask for help! 

    While doing their own Father’s Day shopping, our editors have shared standout products from the Cathay shop that they’re planning to add to their carts. Discover their picks below and see if one of them might make the perfect prezzie for your dad too.

    In the bag

    After years spent travelling for work, it’s fair to say my dad’s suitcase has seen better days. I’m after something sturdy, stylish, and built to last – which is why I’ve got my eye on the Cathay x Samsonite suitcase . Coated in our signature jade green, with high-quality jacquard lining, it exudes sophistication – but, of course, it’s not all about looks. It’s also made from premium materials and features Samsonite's patented Aero-Trac™ suspension wheel system for a smooth journey.

    Sony RX100 camera

    Snap happy

    My dad is an intrepid “local traveller”. He loves using his travel pass to hop on random buses and see where they take him. He’s also a huge technophobe, which prevents him from documenting any of the places he visits. A straightforward point-and-click camera from the Sony RX100 series – pocket-sized and user-friendly, yet also high-quality – could be just what he needs to start snapping with confidence.

    Barbecued food at W Hong Kong's buffet

    Comfort food

    While I was growing up, it was always a treat to enjoy a dinner buffet with the whole family. Because my dad now works and lives apart from us, we haven’t had much time to sit down and enjoy a meal together. This year, I think it would be nice to finally to treat him to a night of grilled seafood and free-flow wine at an upscale yet cosy spot like the W Hong Kong .

    Dream machine

    What dad doesn't love getting a new gadget, especially one that's sleek, functional, and AI-powered? The futuristic Oral B iO10 Electric Toothbrush in cosmic black is the Rolls Royce of toothbrushes. Powered by micro-vibrations, it provides just the right balance between strong and gentle brushing, while its smart pressure sensor keeps the gums protected. Plus, its AI technology tracks and gives real-time feedback on brushing and pressure, while its interactive light display makes this gadget an overall fun yet functional product to impress Dad with.

    Folding bicycle by Tern as a Father's day present

    Along for the ride

    If your dad is an active person, consider giving him a bike for Father's Day. Cycling is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while getting in some exercise. In fact, why not join Dad so you can take in the fresh air and sunshine together? This folding bicycle by Tern is convenient both to store and to whip out for a spin whenever you both feel like it. It’s also equipped with a mechanical disc brake for safety, 8-speed gearing to cope with various terrains, and a height-adjustable seat to suit a wide range of riders.

    Alessi Alessandro M corkscrew as a Father's Day present

    Wine not?

    My dad is a big wine guy, so I know that vino-themed gifts will always be a hit. The Alessi Alessandro M corkscrew , a self-portrait by designer Alessandro Mendini, adds a bit of humour to every uncorking – simply position his legs over the bottle’s neck, grasp his ears and twist his head to pull out the cork. I also find his red jumper particularly fetching.
