Let’s hear it for the dads! Father’s Day falls on Sunday June 20. Why not show your love for your dad by picking out a special gift? Here are some of our favourites.
Classic, stylish and evocative, silhouettes capture a certain something that conventional portraits can’t. London artist Alison Russell is one of the few remaining silhouette artists in the country, and can create your likenesses from photos or – for a fun night – via Zoom.
Weleda’s ethical approach (even their gardens are biodynamic and sustainable) has made them a favourite for over 100 years. Their after-shave balm has a clean and distinctive fragrance; perfect for associating with dad.
Give the gift of never running out of delicious chocolate again! Every month dad will receive two dark and two m•lk boxes through the letterbox, each containing ten mouthwatering pieces of chocolate. That’s enough for an indulgent piece every day, with enough left over for his favourite children!
Ethical kids wear company Polarn O. Pyret’s bold stripes suit everyone, so it was only right that they should make adult versions. Great for ladies or gents, they’re cosy for winter, or wear them on chilly evenings in the garden. Twinning is winning!
Is your dad a secret rocker? Get his fingers going like greased lightning with a lesson from real-life punk hero John Ellis from The Stranglers. That’s if he can play a chord without being too starstruck. Now, how does the intro to Duchess go?
What dad doesn’t love adding a little extra zing to his dinner? Give yours the gift of a frazzled tongue with this medium-hot chilli sauce. We love the way the cherry bomb chilli looks a little like a heart. Don’t forget to make a personalised label to tie around the neck.
Super-stylish, eco-aware and vegan, these evocative fragrances are reminiscent of some classic scents. The solid format makes them easy to transport; perfect for taking on trips or slipping in a pocket for a post-office hit of freshness.
Stretch your family evenings longer into the night with a cosy garden fire pit or bowl. Tell stories, sing, toast marshmallows, or even cook your supper around glowing embers. Home is where the heart is!
Safety razors are an eco-friendly alternative to plastic disposables, plus they make you feel a bit like a pirate when you use them! The Mutiny might look a bit full-on, but it’s easy to use and gives such a smooooooth shave!
The clean-lined, unisex designs of Votch watches make telling the time a joy rather than a chore. Their straps are made from vegan-friendly leather, they’re free from PVC and antimicrobial chemicals and they incorporate recycled content. Classy and kind... just like the perfect dad.
