So, Father’s Day is just around the corner. You already smashed Mother’s day with that super thoughtful gift and encouraged some much needed R&R, but when Dad’s turn rolls around it can seem like a different kettle of fish altogether. Men can be hard to buy for at the best of times; the dreaded “I don’t know” or “I don’t mind” when asked what they might like to receive is about as helpful as a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
It probably goes without saying, but the gifts that are sure to put a smile on their face are the gifts that show how grateful we are to have them in our lives and how much we value everything they have done and continue to do for us. Despite what we may have been led to believe, any father is sure to appreciate such a lovely sentiment, even (and especially) if they don't seem the most openly affectionate of people.
Even for those who aren’t our biological dads, father figures can enter our lives from all sorts of places and times in our lives, and provide just as much care, support and guidance as any other dad out there. So no matter the relation, if they helped you become the person you are today then Father’s day is the perfect time to show them!
So as per, we’ve compiled our most thoughtful and considerate gifts you can give to treat that special Father figure in your life, and make your love and admiration for them shine through. Even if they aren’t the most heavily accessorised dad, we’re sure to have something to suit them ;)
Thanks For Always Being There, Dad: Personalised Year Necklace - £25
If they like to accessorise but want something a bit more understated, then this personalised tag necklace is the perfect solution. A gold plated pendant, hand-stamped with the date they became a father. The ideal gift for any father figure - no matter the relation, finished with a backing card that tells them all they need to know. Really, what's not to like?
For The Record: African Recycled Records Father's Day Bracelet - £24
Our recycled bead bracelet makes for a brilliant gift for music buffs and environmentally conscientious dads alike. Its bright beads make it a real eye-catcher, and is made from recycled vinyl records by local community art groups in Ghana, Africa. All packed in fully recycled packing (as with all our products) and a backing card to let them know where their beads have come from. Perfect!
Family Camp Out: Personalised Father's Day Camping Keyring - £19
If they’re not really the jewellery wearing type but still an avid outdoorsman, or if family walks are your favourite pastime, then this personalised keyring is sure to do the trick. It’s probably dangerous to over-accessorise when adventuring in the great outdoors anyway, right? Customised with either their, yours, or your family’s initials, it serves as the perfect reminder of their love of nature and most importantly, family. (A perfect match with our Father’s Day card too!)
Ride The Wave: Surfer Pendant - £22
Dad something of a surfer dude? Whether they’re a surfing pro, a complete amateur (no shame here) or just a fan of the coast, our surfer pendant is a no-brainer. Available in gold or silver plate finish, and suspended from a vegan suede cord available in multiple colours, this one is sure to suit them no matter their style. The perfect accessory for sunny days by the pool or spending time at the the seaside.
Hopefully that’s given you a few gift ideas to show your appreciation for that difficult to buy for dad in your life. This list is of course non-exhaustive, so be sure to delve into our full Father’s Day range and check out what else we have to offer.
And don’t forget you can add one of our very own Father’s Day Greetings Cards to your order, and if you’d like to send it directly to the recipient we can even hand-write the message for you!
Until next time, and Happy Father’s Day!
