Mulberry's 'Belgrave' briefcase is sleek and sophisticated - perfect for transporting your dad's essentials to and from the office or airport. This style is made from tan leather that has a textured full-grain finish which is more resilient to scratches and scrapes. It features an accompanying shoulder strap so you can carry it cross-body.

There's something really special about hand-writing a note, especially with a fountain pen like Montblanc's 'Meisterstück Classique'. Crafted in Germany from black resin, it's detailed with gold-coated rings and clips, the house's star emblem and an individual serial number. It has its own piston converter, so it works with different ink cartridges, too.
Meisterstück Classique Resin and Rhodium and Gold-Plated Fountain Pen, £495, Montblanc
Bottega Veneta wallet
Bottega Veneta's wallet is a brand classic - with just a slight update. While it's been made in Italy using the hallmark intrecciato technique, you'll notice that the strips of leather are just a bit wider than the norm. The scale of the design is a new signature which we think dads will love.
Intrecciato Leather Billfold Wallet, £380, Bottega Veneta
Gucci's tie is embroidered with four-leaf clovers and an interlocking 'GG' motif - both archival symbols - that complement the tonal-blue gingham pattern. It's been made in Italy from silk-jacquard and cut with a 7cm blade.
