A Candle From The Copenhagen Company
There is sometimes a misunderstanding that only females like scented candles, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. A masculine scented candle from The Copenhagen Company is a brilliant gift idea for the man in your life, and is perfect to add to man caves, bachelor flats, and games rooms or home offices.
The brilliantly, Depeche Mode named inspired ‘Enjoy The Silence‘ scented candle provides tranquil tones from pink pepper, leather and musk, absolutely divine in it’s scent, and perfect for those who detest florals and softer fragrances. It is beautifully boxed and will definitely delight the receiver.
A key Holder
Dispelling the notion that practical gifts are solely utilitarian, a key holder with a tracker emerges as a thoughtful and versatile present. This modern accessory, designed for both functionality and style, makes an excellent gift choice. Ideal for the man who values efficiency and convenience, the key holder with tracker ensures he never misplaces his keys again. Whether it’s for the everyday hustle or occasional adventures, this gift seamlessly combines practicality with a touch of tech-savvy flair. The sleek design and tracking feature makes it a perfect addition to his daily routine, bringing both utility and a sense of modern sophistication.
Treats from PLAYin CHOC
If your dad has a sweet tooth, then a gift from PLAYin CHOC is definitely worth more than a second glance. The brand is both tasty, ethically sound and environmentally friendly, so you are giving a guilt free gift that will be truly appreciated.
Men’s underwear can always be a ‘grey area’ so to speak when it comes to gift ideas. Buying dad socks and pants is a bit of a cliche, but if you chose an ultra cool new brand, then you may just hit the jackpot.
Crossfly is a new UK men’s underwear brand that will appeal to those that love quality, designer items. Their unique selling point is the use of soft quality fabrics, and a unique patented X-FLY system enables quick and easy access to his ‘crown jewels’ (their words – which I love, humour as well as style), with a simple thumb swipe. A unique Cocoon system keep things gently but firmly cradled while having the added benefit of rather enhancing his silhouette.
If you are unsure of sizing, it is suggested you size down as they are comfortable and stretchy.
Personalised Gifts From Engravers Guild
A personalised gift is one that is special and unique, and so is a lovely idea to give to someone you love. Engravers Guild of London are King when it comes to engraved personalised gifts, and their offering for Father’s Day is no different.
This year they have personalised wallets. I love the classic black leather wallet from the brand Visconti that is both beautiful, useful and classic in design. This wallet can be embossed with the initials of the recipient, and also comes in a lovely gift box which leaves no reason for further gift wrapping. All dad’s need a wallet for their cash and cards, and this one has plenty of pockets and spaces for all his important bits and pieces, and the added bonus is that it looks and feels good too, in a great soft leather.
If a personalised wallet is something your dad doesn’t need, then what about a personalised glass. Engravers Guild have a wide range of personalised glasses in many different styles, these include the lovely personalised bubble base whiskey tumbler. This comes in with laser cut engraving, which could be a full name or an initial, you could also add a message too. You can choose 3 different fonts for the engraving, which makes it really personal to both you and the recipient.
A glass works well if dad likes a tipple and has a favourite – you could team this with a bottle of dad’s favourite whisky as a really thoughtful gift.
A Tile Bluetooth tracker
A present that is useful and will appeal to both techy dads, and those that constantly lose their most important belongings like house and car keys, a Tile Bluetooth tracker is certainly a gift that appeals.
Here’s how it works…
Simply attach a tracker to your belonging and the Tile app lets you ring your item if it’s close by, and you can use it in reverse to call your phone – even when it’s on silent. If something is truly lost, the Tile app lets you check where they were last seen on a map. The platform also grants you access to Tile’s lost-and-found network, which will anonymously help find the lost or stolen item almost anywhere in the world.
Tile trackers come in a range of sizes to suit different objects and can be bought in multipacks to be shared amongst your family or to use on multiple items.
Father’s Day Gifts From Cotton Traders
Cotton Traders is great for finding some wearable, practical pieces for your dad. They have a great range of everyday clothing that is perfect for casual wear, holiday wear, and for adding pieces for layering.
Here a couple of my top picks for dad this Father’s Day.
Recycled Microfleece Half Zip Hooded Top
This microfleece top is a perfect Summer cover up, and great for those who enjoy the great outdoors and walking the dog. I love the fact that it is made from recycled plastic bottles, which makes this a great gift for those who are conscious about planetary waste. The stylish design has twin side pockets for things like a mobile phone and keys, and it also has a hood for colder or rainy days.
Lace Up Trainers
Trainers are a dad wardrobe staple, and this design from Cotton Traders are great in terms of comfort and style. They have a sporty look, but are also stylish enough to team with jeans for a night at the pub. They come in a range of sizes from 7-12 and are true to size.
These are definitely a great treat for dads everywhere.
