With Father’s Day just around the corner (20th June, just in case you needed a reminder!), we’ve collected up some of our favourite gift ideas from lots of lovely small businesses – without a pair of socks in sight!
With the men in our lives traditionally some of the hardest to buy for, we’ve focused on delicious food and drinks to enjoy on the day, and keepsakes that dads, grandads, step-dads and dad-to-be will love.
Card by Festive Fingerprints
We shout out Festive Fingerprints in every gift guide we put together as not only is she a fabulous friend, but her cards are the sweetest on the market.
This year, she’s offering two types of Father’s Day cards, Peas in a Pod and Froggy Father’s Day, both of which come with a reusable ink pad for personalisation and an envelope.
Bacon Naan Roll kit from Dishoom
This much-loved breakfast dish has gained a cult status recently, and for very good reason!
Create Dishoom’s Bacon Naan Rolls at home with beautifully-packaged kit, which includes everything you need to make delicious rolls for two. You can even upgrade to include the ingredients for marmalade Mimosas too!
Bon bons from Tender Caramel
Does the significant dad in your life have a sweet tooth? Then these handmade chocolate caramels might be the perfect gift. Enjoy 24 chocolate coated bon bons, all filled with a liquid caramel centre, and know you’re helping support something good too with £1 from each box being donated to projects supporting mental health and well-being.
Personalised wallet from Honey & Toast
Practical gifts don’t have to be boring! Honey & Toast make stylish, modern leather goods which can be personalised with a drawing, handprint or handwriting, making their wallets an extra special gift. Made in Somerset, they’re created from the finest Italian leather and are a true classic.
Line drawing from Mama Days
We mentioned Mama Days’ line drawings in our Mother’s Day gift guide, but they would also make a stunning gift for dads too. Their ‘A Kiss for Dad’ and ‘Safe with Him’ drawings are perfect, and both come available in a print or a digital download if you’ve left your gift buying until the last minute.
Tie or pocket square from Beau Tie
Beau Tie’s products are handmade in Swindon. Wrapped beautifully, their bow ties and pocket squares come in a variety of unique fabrics - including Liberty prints - and are guaranteed to really impress the dapper man in your life.
Selection of premixed cocktails from Tinkture
Tinkture, using their delicious Cornish Rose Gin, have created a range of premixed cocktails to enjoy at home. This is one gift we hope they’ll share! Choose from Espresso Martini, Dirty Rose Martini, Cherry Manhattan, Casa Negron, Negroni Rosa or Tink and Booch – a drink they’re billing as the 'cleanest cocktail in a can'.
Meat Box from Pipers Farm
Stock up on his favourite cuts of meat for a Father’s Day BBQ or big roast dinner. All of Pipers Farm meats are award-winning and grass-fed, and are delivered straight to your door.
Choose from the BBQ Burger box, Summer Meat Box, Steak Tasting Meat Box, Ultimate Breakfast Box, or our favourite... the Hot Dog Box.
