Morning Machine

Perfect for caffeine-loving fathers, the Morning Machine is a slick and stylish gadget where high-quality coffee and specialty roasts meet the convenience of capsules. Unlike other one dimensional home coffee machines, Morning is a smart machine that boasts customisable technology to give you full control over your brew, ensuring the flavour of each bean is optimised. There are 10 default settings to use including ‘Bloom & Brew’ for their flagship espresso, functions for long coffees, filter brews, and even a ‘Kyoto Style Slow Drip’ for craft coffees. It can also be used in tandem with the Morning app, which gives access to recipes so you can replicate cafe-quality coffee at home.

Dormu Cooler weighted blanket

After the many years of sleep deprivation – from looking after you as a newborn or worrying about you as a rebellious teenager – you can now give your dad a good night's sleep for Father's Day. Gift him a Dormu weighted blanket which, thanks to the evenly distributed weight (from medical-grade eco-friendly glass beads) that applies gentle pressure across the body, relaxing the nervous system while offering a comforting hug-like sensation, will promote deeper, longer and better quality sleep. The luxury weighted blanket also comes in a cool-to-touch bamboo duvet cover, made using 100 percent lyocell bamboo which feels soft and silky smooth on the skin. What's more, bamboo is thermo-regulating and antibacterial so you can feel comfortable using the blanket all year round, even on Hong Kong's hottest days.
