L: Indri R: Olio Stories

Fathers can be a notoriously tricky bunch to shop for. While we love our dads, they can be as finicky and as stubborn as they come and every year countless Indian children embark on a quest to find that one perfect gift; yearning to break away from the tried, the tested, and the safe.

So, instead of buying your Dad a 54598th tie to add to his collection, take a gander at Homegrown's one-stop father-themed gifting guide.

Indri-Trini

Indri-Trini

If your dad is someone who loves the finer things in life and appreciates the notes of a good whiskey, Indri-Trini might be a great gift for him. Deemed India’s first triple-cask single malt whiskey, the drink recently bagged the Best ‘New World’ whiskey title by VinePair. The sensorial journey that the drink can take you on is noted right in the name ‘Indri’ which references the ‘5 senses’. The brand defines the Indri-Trini’s as “a smooth single malt entices with its deep amber colour, notes of caramelised pineapple, vanilla, black tea, raisins, honey and a long aftertaste of sweet fruity flavours.”

Olio Stories

Olio Stories

We’ll be honest, we’ve been waiting to feature the series of images from the Olio Stories series featuring one of the co-founder’s 90 year old grandfather Colonel HN Singh, who has become Nana to all those who love the brand. A brand that isn’t afraid to speak their truth - from electoral politics to cultural commentary, Olio Stories is a brand whose pieces are suffused with stories and created with intention. While they (and us) are stout believers in the fact that jewellery is not-gendered, they have a specific unisex collection called ‘Hum Dum’ which they say has been designed to be worn lovingly by both the partners in a couple.
