'Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.' Every year in June we celebrate one day just for our father; the person who raised us, pushed us forward, and helped us achieve all everything we are today. We would not be ourselves without our fathers. We can rely on them at all ages, for anything and everything. Here are our suggestions for ways to celebrate father's day.


Six Gifts to spoil him with:

A personal grooming kit with hand selected products

Matching T-shirts or mugs for you and dad

A recreational trip- hiking, camping, fishing...

Collection of photos and momento's from your times together

Accessories to funk up his daily outfits- cufflinks with your fingerprint, a wallet, neon braces...

A collection of the finest cigars from around the world

Or, you van simply take him for a movie and dinner, and buy him a drink


Five Movies to Watch with Him:

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham


Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin

Finding Nemo

Persuit of Happyness


Real steel

The Godfather

Boyz n the Hood


Bollywood Release

Dil Dhadakne Do is a Bollywood family comedy-drama film featuring a cast of Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, and Anushka Sharma. The movie is about the misadventures of a previously rich Indian family of one-percenters narrated by a dog. If you feel like taking your father out for a new movie, this is the one to see.
