Father's Day gift ideas for dad and grandad
June is now well upon us and that means that Father's Day is just around the beardy corner (20 June to be precise), which also means we need to start coming up with some cool prezzy ideas. As this year is a little different when it comes to get getting out and about in town to buy the perfect gift, we've been putting our thinking caps on for online ideas from small and local companies that we just know dad is gonna love.
Daddy Cool / Baby Cool tees
Is there anything more adorable than seeing daddy twin with his bubba? We think not, so we're loving this Daddy Cool with matching Baby Cool t-shirt (0-18 month sizes available) set by Betty Bramble. Too cool for school.
Cost: £28 per set
Yes, socks might seem a standard kinda gift for dads when it comes to Father's Day presents, but we just know that he will love a one-of-a-kind pair designed just for him. Head over to Solesmith to pick up the perfect pair: we're especially digging the photo ones!
Cost: From £14.99 per pair
Daddy and me playdate tokens
How adorable are these gorgeous sets by Farmhouse & Co which include 10 tokens per set? They're personalised with Daddy and child's favourite play dates and are kept inside a cotton drawstring bag with names on it. Utterly delightful.
Cost: £20.00 per set
No. 1 Dad / Grandad bespoke keepsake
Not only does Sally Bee Designs whip up the fabbiest keepsakes all made to order, but it's run by a lovely lady from Leicester who definitely knows a thing or two about pretty designs. Once we've bought dad and grandad his prezzie, we're totally crushing on her dream catchers and fairy doors. We want ALL the Sally Bee things!
Cost: £6.99 each with free UK delivery
We adore all things Moon & Mira (and not just because the brains behind the business happens to be our cousin), and we're currently uber crushing on the one-of-a-kind handmade photograph keyrings that can be made with a photo of your choice. Dads and grandads will love these for sure.
Personalised sunrise photo
If you are looking for a super special gift this year, then it doesn't get much more special than a beautiful, framed print by The Day That. Find your child's birthdate (or any other important date you have in mind) in its library, pick the sunrise photo you like best from that day, and get it framed and delivered in time for Father's Day. If the sentiment behind this doesn't bring an emosh tear to dad's eye, then we don't know what will!
Cost: From £34.93 (print only)
Hug in a box
As dads tend to be quite good at dishing out the bear hugs, here's a grrrr-eat prezzie by Tamzenlundydesigns to gift him from his little cubs: a bear hug in a box! Choose from a pirate, sailor or moustached hero but you've been warned: these adorable gifts are handmade and limited in numbers so get ordering, or end up feeling like a bear with a sore head if you miss out.
Cost: £8.64 for each hug
Personalised family portrait: welly style!
We liked this gift idea so much, we ordered one for the dad behind London for Kidz! (Shhh: don't tell him). Head over to This Is Nessie to pick your own colours, names, etc and then sit back and wait for the finished, gorgeous portrait to arrive. Don't forget to include the fur kids!
Cost: From £17.50
We recently went nuts for these ethically sourced, delish bar snacks by Cajuu. We're talking proper tasty cashew products that are putting Tanzania on the map while also giving back to its cashew farming communities. It doesn't hurt that these are the yummiest cashews we ever did eat! Happy days.
Cost: Tasting packs from £9.50 each
Chances are dad is gonna need a brew to go with those snacks, and we're not talking the tea kind. This beer bundle by Honest Brew is great value at £29.90 and includes nine beers, a tasting glass, a pair of socks and a beer gift voucher! Cheers to that.
A frog house
If you're hopping all over the internet in an attempt to find a gift for the dad or grandad that seems to have everything, we're willing to bet that he hasn't yet got a frog house! And what with all the gardening projects we've been doing as a fam recently, we toad-ally think this one by Frogilo, available at Yes Please UK, will make a croak-tastic addition to your back yard.
Cost: £21.99 (but there's an offer of 10% off your first order running right now)
A map of the world
With our holidays being cancelled left, right and centre this year, we're dreaming of all the places we want to travel to once this is all over. And what better way to get a bit of inspo than with a beautiful map of the world? We've had our own gorgeous Future Mapping Company magnetic map for a while now, and we love throwing those magnets at it to find new places to learn about and to pop on the vacay bucket list. These are certainly not your old fuddy kinda maps, people: these stunners push the boundaries of map design and absolutely demand for a central spot on your wall. Fun fact: Joe Wicks, the body coach, has the same map as us and you'll often see it in the background of his PE lessons!
Cost: From £35.00
