June 18 is celebrated all across the globe as Father's Day, thus making it one of those unique ways of honouring our dads and the relationships we share with them. And every celebration calls for some gifts and presents, don't they? While there are many who take their time out and plan everything in advance, there are equally many who find themselves in a fix at the last hour. And, if you are among the latter, then we have got you covered. 

If your dad is an alcohol connoisseur or someone who only likes to drink on special occasions, your best bet for a gift right now could be a nice bottle of gin!
