This year the concierge team has received a host of wonderful gift requests that they have been fulfilling for their member's fathers. Here are Quintessentially's top ten suggestions:
The Ultimate Golfing Experience - Quintessentially can arrange for a father to spend an epic day with his golfing hero, including a morning with a certain world-class PGA champion, coaching him on his technique at the world renowned Wentworth Golf Club, before launching off together on what will be the most memorable 18 holes of any golfing fanatic's life! Having worked up an appetite and they will then be treated to a gourmet private lunch on the terrace, where they can dissect each hole in true golfing style- and maybe discuss some of the insider secrets from the golfing circuit.
The Ferrari Experience - Quintessentially can arrange for a two day Ferrari experience in Milan, including private chartered flights, personalised tours of the city, luxury hotels and restaurant reservations, as well as the member's father's own personal F-430 Ferrari for the duration of his stay. He'll be taught proper handling techniques before being unleashed on the road for the drive of his life!
For the Father in need of a break - Quintessentially can arrange a relaxing stay at the 5 star luxury boutique hotel of La Gazelle D'Or located on the private estate in Morocco. The preferred clandestine hideaway for VIP's including Chirac, guests can unwind surrounded by private villas, acres of orange groves, and indulge in the hammans and spoiling spa treatments and dine on some truly magical culinary delights. A truly luxurious getaway.
For the stay at home Father - Spoil him with the Rolls Royce of pool tables by Nottage Design; with a unique glass top, the G1 is the ultimate pool table for any modern games room, blending ultra modern styling with new state of the art technology. The transparent playing area is composed of the patented Vitrik surface, topped with 15mm of toughened glass. The Vitrik playing surface replicates the rolling resistance of an average speed cloth. It is hardwearing, allows spin to be practiced and retains consistent roll characteristics over its lifetime.
For the discerning gentlemen - A bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label is the ultimate tipple for the discerning gentlemen. This is JW's most prestigious whisky and is probably the most famous super-premium blend. Made up of the finest old-aged malt and grain whiskies it will certainly make an impression, especially when presented with an engraved bottle and set of tumblers.
For the secret chocoholic - Award-winning British Chocolatier William Curley has been conjuring up some truly magical morsels. Treat your Father to a trip to William's famous Desert Bar, or a trip down memory lane with delights from his Nostalgia range including a peanut and caramel bar and a chocolate covered coconut favorite.
For the Foodie - Quintessentially can organize a gourmet Father's Day lunch with his favorite Celebrity Chef on a private barge trip through the stunning canals of Little Venice for him and his family. Not only is the setting beautiful and the journey relaxing, Quintessentially has arranged for one of the world's most celebrated chefs to cook the lunch as a surprise - only to appear at the end of the meal with the dessert!
For the Wine enthusiast - Quintessentially Wine have their team of experts dedicated to finding the most interesting and sought after wines for members to truly spoil their fathers. Whether it's the rare Lafitte or something more obscure you have in mind, they will be able to source it. Quintessentially Wines can advise on what to buy and when to drink it.
For the Opera lover - Tickets to the sold out production of Wagner's Die Meistersinger Von Nurnberg at The Glyndebourne Festival combined with an overnight stay at Gravetye Manor is the perfect gift with a little bit of culture and a lot of fun.
