Gifts for Him this Father’s Day
Gifts For Him
quick gift guide for the men in your life!
As a very busy month in my personal birthday calendar, I always find it extremely difficult to know what to buy people. In addition to birthdays don’t forget that Father’s Day is fast approaching and so here is a quick gift guide for the men in your life!
Whether it’s his heart or his belly that you are hoping to satisfy it really doesn’t matter as the quality of the items are all so good. Take look at these products and link to the stall holder to find out where you can collect or maybe order online through their online stores.
What is special about these items all are handmade high quality goods and most can be personalised. We do not take any commission for their sales it is just ‘you and them’ we are here you let you know what they do! Click onto their pages and visit them at a market or their online shops. You will make them super happy this spring.
Take a look at these very cute cards from Flying Teaspoons. “I’ve got this” is also available for “Happy Birthday Dad”, the pigeons are also available for “Grandad on Father’s Day” and “Happy Birthday Dad” which is the same for the owl.
The rest of gifts are broken down into Food, Bathing & lifestyle & Art categories. Take a look.
Starting with some smaller items as little extras but no less important are from The Weston Biltong Company, why not try a selection of their finest Biltong or Droewors. I recently bought some Biltong for a friend and it was a total hit. A gift with a twist but fully appreciated all the same. Their selection of biltong is now quite varied and with such a choice from original to spiced you won’t be disappointed and neither will the birthday boy/Dad. (cost Approx. £15)Is he a coffee lover? Why not visit Second City Coffee and pick up a couple of bags of fresh coffee for him to try at home now most people have their very own coffee machines- sadly I’m not one of these people but the smell is delightful and a quick visit to see SCC and you are not disappointed.(Bags start from approx £5)
Does he love cooking? Whispers of Wood do fantastic chopping & presentation boards. Take a look at this one in the shape of a motorbike! (£39) His signature boards are striped by mixing various coloured hard woods to create this effect. Link to his page to view more.
Bathing & Lifestyle Products
Bubble Off! Have a fantastic selection of vegan mens bathing products. One of their best sellers is Beardy Buff! A beard serum that is essential in maintaining a healthy full beard and for all those lovely ladies that have to kiss their partners- it may be an essential buy, possibly more for you than them! Why not team it up with their ‘Filthy Male Moisturiser’. (cost approx. £20 total)
Cufflinks, everyone needs a pair but when you come to them they are out of date or you cannot find them. Ruby Tynan Jewellery has created a beautiful selection of cufflinks ranging from simple classic design to contemporary with these gorgeous little moustache links and matching tie pin is available (see pictures). (cost ranging from £30)
RoadoDenDrons can create anything you like out of wood, from a plaque for his ‘Man Cave’ to a bench or garden products.
Turned wooden pens by Woodcraft by Owen making a fabulous gift, one of which I recently purchased. They are all refillable and are beautifully finished. Sold with either a display box or a small bag making a very classy present. (cost approx: £18+)
Love camping? Junkbox Couture do a huge range of quality clothing products with their logo and these fabulous designed mugs great for any camping trip. Take a look at their products and link to their online shop.
Is it Art that your loved one or friend is interested in? Well look no further. Statement Artworks has a plethora of poster art that features towns within Manchester and its surrounding area. These prints come in the form of coasters, cards, framed or unframed and would make a fantastic present for those men with an eye for something quirky and a good sense of humour. (cost ranges from £10)
Take a look at this piece by For Me For You “As a keen cyclist, with a lot of cycling friends, we wanted to bring a part of our passion into our work, and the road and mountain biker scenes were the product that materialised”. Created from original photographs and cut into a single piece of wood, the scene captures the very essence of riding your bike, and would make a perfect gift for any dad who is happiest when on 2 wheels. They do commissions too! Click to link to their page.
Here is a beautiful stitched and framed item by Lillyblossom. You personalise it too! If this is what you are looking for click the link and view her page and this can be ordered from her online shop on Etsy £40 (links to Etsy from her page).
Looking for at a digital print onto wood? Fishercraft have perfected the idea of printing onto wood with their various superhero themes and they can also do this with a personal photo. So, if you have a memorable picture from a date or holiday and you would like to get the image enlarged and put up for the world to see pop onto Fishercraft’s page to view a sample of their work and link to their website.
