14 Great Gifts for Father’s Day
Not sure what to buy for the dad, granddad or father-to-be in your life? Treat him to an
artisan-made Father’s Day gift that he’ll treasure forever (and never find at the supermarket!)
For the military buff dad
Give Dad a Spitfire for D-Day (Dad’s Day, that is)! This stunning Spitfire Paperweight (£10.50) is made from solid lead-free pewter and has a strong magnet on the back, so he can stick it on the fridge if he’s short of paper to weigh down. Check out our Heritage section for more quirky WWII-inspired gifts.
For the dad who loves opening boxes of pressies
Give Dad a presentation box he’ll want to keep, even before he opens it! Our Father’s Day Gourmet & Spitfire Gift Set (£19.95) includes a Spitfire Key Ring, Tomato Relish, Clementine & Whisky Preserve and Honey Chocolates. The Father’s Day Foodie & Spitfire Gift Set (£24.95) contains a greetings card, Spitfire bottle opener, handmade chocolate and Clementine & Whisky Preserve. All our special Father’s Day Gift boxes come with a selection of Trivia Gift Tags. We hand-tie them all and welcome your ideas for personalised messages.
For the dapper dad
Give Dad a premium item of jewellery that he’ll treasure for life. These Silver Twig Cufflinks (£110) are handmade in Southampton by leading designer Georgina Ettridge, who takes inspiration from nature to produce her miniature sterling silver sculptures. No two are exactly alike, so Dad really will have a unique gift.
For the dad who loves to win
Dad always let you win at games when you were a kid, so now it’s his turn – and you can give him a head start with his very own set of large poker-size playing cards. Our Eco Friendly Playing Cards (£4.50) have no plastic coating, and they’re even printed using vegetable inks in a solar-panelled factory. Now that’s what we call a win!
For the cheese loving dad
Cheese accompaniments don’t come much cheddar than our Great Taste Piccalilli (£4.25) – or should that be our grate taste piccalilli? Charlotte Brown’s handmade Tomato Relish (£4.25) is another brie-lliant sandwich companion. Sweet dreams are made of cheese…
For the beer loving dad
The Spitfire is also the inspiration for our gorgeous brass-finished Magnetic Spitfire Bottle Opener (£13.50), one of the the most popular of our artisan-made Father’s Day gifts. And he can rest his glass on these illustrated coasters (£4.50), by Southampton artist Aaron Jay. If his tipple is whisky, our Clementine and Whisky Preserve (£3.95) will add a zing to his morning toast.
For the dad with a sweet tooth
Our handmade New Forest Honey Chocolates (£10.95), filled with oozing ganache, are among our most popular gifts. Our Honey With Love gift set (£12.95) packages the chocs with any greetings card from our selection. Like all our gift sets, Honey With Love can be personalised with your own message.
For the house-proud dad
This fabulous oversized tea towel (£9.50), which features vintage stamp designs by renowned Southampton printmaker Hannah Fitzpatrick, is almost too good for mopping up spills. Select ‘Set of Two’ (£17) when checking out, so he can have two designs and frame one for the wall!
…and don’t forget Dad’s card!
Make him smile with our ‘Goatie be the best Dad‘ card (£2.95), by Cheshire-based illustrator Sarah Capper. Nature lover Sarah has also created beautiful cards featuring birds, bees and even a Highland cow, all blank inside for your own message, so head over to Cards & Books for a browse.
