by Karen Rollins Jun 5, 2023
Father’s Day is Sunday 18 June.
If you’re hoping to give your dad, or another father figure, a memorable gift to show just how much you appreciate their love and support, this guide should help.
Various local restaurants and hotels will have a special menu planned for Father’s Day. Hilton Barbados Resort is hosting a lunch buffet for $155 per person. Primo bar and bistro in St Lawrence Gap have a three-course set lunch or dinner menu for $130 (including VAT).
Chocolates and Cake
If your dad has a sweet tooth, you can treat him to some chocolates and/or cake. Barbadian based Sweet Nectar offers bespoke, luxury cakes for every special occasion. The Green Monkey Chocolatier also provides a range of sweet treats including macarons, cake pops, and chocolate bars.
Gift Boxes / Baskets
When you can’t decide on one gift, a gift box full of all the things your dad likes might be the best option. With Love Creative Studio puts together specially curated boxes to create a gift that is uniquely personal. Lady T’s Creations offers gift baskets and boxes filled with items that are fun and practical.
There are so many options when it comes to jewellery. Watches, necklaces, rings, or even bracelets are a great choice for dads. Barbadian watchmaker Monumental Watches has a Father’s Day special on its new white gold icon watch which is available for $230 (BBD). Banz Caribbean also has jewellery repping Bim.
Wallets / Bags
A custom-made wallet or bag could be just the gift your dad has been waiting for. Rugged Leather Barbados handcrafts various items, including bespoke wallets, out of top grain leather and Barbadian brand Vylet handmakes crossbody bags or toilet pouches out of the print of your choice.
