Gump's Extraordinary
Father's Day Gift Guide

Looking for the right gift for the man who seemingly has everything? Your search is over. With Father's Day just around the corner, we tasked the Gump's team with putting together a list of gift ideas for dads who have impeccable taste and standards as high as our own. From fantastic jewelry pieces and the world's best steak knives to beautifully crafted cocktail sets and exceptional dinnerware, this unique gift guide goes well beyond the standard golf shirt or necktie.


Robbe & Berking Steak Knives


Handmade in Germany, Robbe & Berking is legendary among chefs for creating extremely sharp, beautiful knives. They recently created a new barbecue line that's been called 'the best steak knives in the world' by a number of people who know about such things. The Riva collection uses what's called a diamond-like carbon finish, which is comprised of an anthracite-black coating that combines industrial properties with a refined technical look that's sure to impress at your next dinner party or backyard get-together.

Robbe & Berking Whiskey Glasses

Equally as impressive as their steak knives, the whiskey glasses from Robbe & Berking's Martelé Bar Collection are exquisite. Handcrafted from hammered sterling silver, these glasses feature a unique, straight-side shape that provide a beautiful-yet-masculine look. Perfect for cocktails, fine dining or casual drinks among friends, these glasses are a must-have for any gentleman's bar.

Georg Jensen Bernadotte Cocktail Set

When it comes to fine silver, Georg Jensen is one of the best in the world. Gump's has been featuring the Danish artist's work for almost 100 years and, like a fine wine, the brand's timeless designs only get better through the decades. The Bernadotte collection was designed in 1937 by Sigvard Bernadotte. A member of the Swedish royal family and an important designer in Europe during his time, both he and his work continue to be highly revered throughout the world. Featuring a cocktail shaker, tray and shot glass  — all hand-wrought and hand-engraved in Denmark — the Bernadotte collection's fine craftsmanship make it one of the most prized in our entire store.
