Father’s Day is 19th June this year and we have a few gift ideas for you that are ethical, fun and a bit different.
We know Dads can be really difficult to buy for, so maybe we can give you some inspiration
This is a great gift for Father’s Day and is fun for all the family. “It’s wooden, noisy and you get to ping things. Brilliant” – Time Out, London. Players race each other to clear the discs (“pucks”) from their side of the board by catapulting them through a small hole leading to the other side (the “gate”). Any pucks that arrive on your side must be sent back before you win. These Pucket games are hand-crafted in India from sheesham and haldu wood and come complete with a cotton bag for the pucks, and pegs to adjust tension on the elastic.
This may be the perfect gift for the Dad that has everything, and will surely come out again and again at Christmases and parties for years to come. It is £49.50 with free standard delivery to the UK.
Maybe Dad’s study needs a bit of sprucing up with a few well chosen accessories? Our Timu leather journals are gorgeous, useful gifts that can be used as notebooks, diaries or even photo albums. Or perhaps he would like some stylish red soapstone bookends to keep those books in order on the shelf? Or he may need some aluminium coasters to stop those drips marking his desk?
Does Dad have a favourite armchair that has seen better days? Why not hide some of that threadbare upholstery with a cushion? We have a few cushions suitable for men that will make relaxing in the evening just a little more comfortable for him. Prices start at £18 for a complete cushion.
And if all else fails and you end up going for a mug, again, make it a fair trade mug. With maybe a matching egg cup this year? Prices start at just £3.
