6 Once-In-A-Lifetime Gifts For the Dad Who Has Everything
What do you get Dad for Father’s Day when the golf bag is stocked, he has a watch for every occasion and his closet holds enough silk ties to dress a cavalry of cabinet members? If your favorite guy in the world is already aptly equipped, it’s time to get creative.
Here are a few out-of-the-gift-box ideas worth pondering:
1 Why not buy him a private island?
Or better yet, custom-make one? Thanks to Dutch designer Koen Olthius, mastermind of Amsterdam’s floating houses, these self-sustainable islands are safe from rising sea levels (at least for the next 100 years.)
2 … Or make him feel like James Bond for a day?
Dad doesn’t get to destroy a perfectly good Aston Martin, but he can experience the life of James Bond in real life and live like a spy for two months. Through this custom-tailored interactive experience crafted by former MI6 intelligence professionals, the most furtive of fathers can engage in covert communications and secret-agent recruitment. After his mission ends in a European spy capital, he’ll even receive a visual play-by-play of the adventure.
3 Give him some chopsticks with an ancient pedigree.
Intricately designed by the man known as “the greatest silversmith of the last 300 years,” these sterling-silver Acorn Chopsticks made of mammoth tusks will have dad dining in timeless quality. Literally. Oh, did we mention this set is royalty approved? Georg Jensen’s entire collection, including this set, was commissioned in the early 20th century by Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark. Lad os spise!
4 Upgrade his ride with serious bling.
A country drive with the top down, underneath the night’s sky dotted with countless stars brings a sense of calm. Now, Dad can experience that celestial feeling whenever he drives. The Rolls Royce Phantom has a roof lined with hundreds of LEDs mimicking the night’s sky. Oh, and don’t forget to show him the diamond-imbued dashboard – just remind him to keep his eyes on the road.
5 Send him on an other-worldly adventure.
Dad can embark on a near-space experience with a zero-emission private pod called Bloon. He’ll get a 360° view of earth astronauts muse about, all while enjoying Michelin-star food and drink. Ground control to Major Dad: Your dream is coming true.
6 Make him part of the Jet Set.
From Hong Kong to Florence, Dad can savor exclusive tasty experiences in six cities around the globe while traveling on a Four Seasons Private Jet journey. And yes, he’ll be nesting at Four Seasons resorts along the way.
