With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to start shopping around for the father figures in your life. Gift hunting for Dad can be tricky to do, particularly if you want to find the perfect present! Sometimes it is okay to think outside the box when looking for gifts, and with that in mind we have put together a quick yet thorough guide to some gifts crafted by our artisans that are clever, useful, or both for you to look over!
Dressing to Impress
For a guy who likes to look sharp and does so on a regular basis, why not consider some colourful and tasteful tie clips and cufflinks by Mo Resin? These tiny bursts of colour can add real character to an outfit, drawing the eye without being too overwhelming to the overall aesthetic. Even better, these accessories can be worn to accentuate the day to day office wardrobe, but can also easily compliment formal attire, too!
For the dad that really likes to shake things up when it comes to appearance, consider the innovative wooden reversible hex tie, made by Shivi Palod. Lightweight and made from rosewood and birch, these ties are handcrafted and have two reversible colour tones to allow for maximum accessorization. What’s more, they are guaranteed to be a conversation piece, as wooden ties are something of a rarity!
Luggage can make a man just the way clothing and accessories do, which is why you may also consider some of the bags offered by Vintage Leather Sydney. These bags are handcrafted with durability in mind, but also handsome enough to draw the eye regardless of where you are going.
A New Take on Homewares
Sometimes it is the simple things that we need most, and what is better than a new, creative twist on those simple things? In keeping with that line of thought, consider the many impressive items of Opus Lab, including exquisitely crafted and durable wooden spoons, cheese knives, tongs, cheese boards, and chopping boards – all ideal gifts for the father that loves to cook.
If your dad has a green thumb but hasn’t ventured into the world of succulents yet, why not buy him one of Bloominbee’s incredible cactus terrariums? They are vibrant and house a variety of plants, making them a great and easy-to-care for addition to any in-home greenery collection.
Artwork is a great gift idea, as well, and a striking acrylic piece by Art of George might be just what your dad needs to add some flair to his study or living room.
Unique Skincare Solutions
Dad’s skin needs love and attention too, and that’s why it will be worth your while to check out some of the incredible wares offered by Soaps by Heather. The Beer Soap, in particular, might just be the thing for your dad. In addition to beer, it features fragrances of coconut oil, patchouli, and cinnamon leaf.
Everyone can use a daily dose of pick-me-up, which is why some of the flower essence treatment oils by Dear Mother are another ideal gift idea. The Alpha essence, for instance, infuses the wearer with clarity and strength and helps to rediscover alignment with one’s self.
A Creative Spin on Tea and Spirits
For a father that enjoys fine spirits or quality tea (or both!), The Cure Tonics has all you need. Among their products you will find flavourful syrups that perfectly compliment gin and spirits, as well as a delectable caramel syrup meant for coffee.
Tea drinkers will benefit greatly from receiving any of Inspired Health’s all natural teas, including the black chai mix that contains hints of aniseed, ginger, cinnamon, and clove. Be sure to add a tea infuser so that your dad can steep the tea to perfection!
A Heartfelt Message
No Father’s Day is complete without a card, so why not choose one that has an original illustration with an adorable message of love and affection for your dad? My Lovely Pets Design’s cards feature the cutest of animals and a minimalist design, perfect for the dad who loves his cats and/or dogs!
As you can see, there’s no shortage of clever, useful gift ideas to be found in our artisan collective, so be sure to look over the selection to see what else you can find for your dear dad!
