Are you one of the super-organised brigade who’s had their Father’s Day gift bought, wrapped, and ready for presenting weeks ago…or are you still frantically looking for the perfect gift for dad, daddy or the father figure in your life?


If, like many others, you fit into the latter category then fear not, The Royal Exchange Manchester has all you need – and more – to find that perfect gift for many occasions.


So, whether the loved ones in your life are keen outdoor enthusiasts, style icons or are partial to chocolate treats or fine whisky, here’s our starter for ten for gift inspiration:


Molton Brown Re-charge Black Pepper

British fragrance makers, Molton Brown, are celebrating 20 years of their iconic, award-winning Re-charge Black Pepper collection. This charismatic, woody-citrus scent with a fusion of warm black pepper, herbaceous coriander and earthy vetiver has been a constant favourite since its launch.


The best-selling fragrance is available in various formats including bath & shower gel, eau de parfum, body lotion and the BodyScrub bar and, according to Molton Brown, it’s ideal for adventurous types.


Fjallraven Manchester

Whilst we’re on the subject of adventurous types, if you’re looking for a gift for the outdoor enthusiast then a visit to the Fjallraven store on Old Bank Street is a must. The colourful range of caps, t-shirts and outdoor clothing, as well as the popular Kanken bags – of all sizes and colours – will look good whether they are trekking in the hills or strolling around the city centre.


Yards Store

Staying on Old Bank Street, Yards Store is conveniently located next to Fjallraven Manchester and has lots to offer for Father’s Day gifts. With cool clothing from top brands and a wide selection of gifts and accessories, from watches and wallets to socks and sunglasses.
