Father's Day Gift Ideas
Father's Day is around the corner (date for the diary is Sunday 20 June) and every year I hear people say how hard it is to find a unique Father's Day Gift idea to present their Dad or Father figure with. I also know there is a growing trend of using Father's Day to celebrate all the Father figures in your life, maybe you want to send some love to your Father in Law, Step Dad or favourite Uncle. Whomever and however many Dads you have in your life I love the idea of celebrating them all on this holiday.
So onto the unique and special Father's Day gift ideas! If you are bored of giving your Dad socks, golf themed novelty gifts or beer/whisky then this is the curious and creative Father's Day Gift Guide for you!
First off, now that at least some of the world is emerging from lockdown (no signs here in Amsterdam as of yet) your Dad may want to put his most dapper foot forward and embrace the new world as an opportunity to show off his style and personality. And let's be honest lockdown attire is not going to cut it for the outside and social world. So how about a handmade to order, knitted Bow Tie? The unique Bow Tie that is curious, creative and yet shows that your Dad doesn't take themselves too seriously.
With over 16 Bowtie designs to choose from you are bound to find the colour and design that your Dad would rock. However, if you absolutely can't choose you will find Gift Vouchers available too, giving your Padre the choice to make for himself.
You will also find Custom Bow Tie options, complete with the choice of adding additional and personalised embroidery on the strap, the perfect way to make an extra special 'I love you Dad' statement for your Father's Day moment.
If your Dad is not a Bow Tie wearer then have a peruse through the choice of Suspenders (also known as Braces, Bretels and Bretelles) or my Knitted Neck Ties. Again a huge range of colours to suit any Dad's vibe as well as Gift Vouchers and Custom/Bespoke options.
Maybe your Father's Day gift budget is a little smaller than one of the Bow Ties, Suspenders or Ties requires and if that is the case, I got you. I also make Mini Bow Tie Pins which can be pinned to your Dad's jumper, coat, shirt, jacket...wherever! Each Bow Tie Pin comes individually boxed and like all the pieces I make, are 1 of only 25 available. The specific edition number will be handwritten inside the box so your Dad can see you found him something special to celebrate the positive force he is in your life.
Every item comes gift wrapped and with a handwritten note which can include your personal message. I can send your gift directly to your Dad too in case you can't be with him for Father's Day.
Now if none of these gift ideas for your Dad do the trick, here's my wildcard Father's Day gift idea. How about booking you both in for an online Knitting Lesson with me over at my Beginner Knitting website, Learn to Knit Online? You can join me for an online class together wherever you each are in the world and master a new skill together, a skill you can continue to enjoy together long after the 90 min class ends.
However you choose to celebrate your Father figure this Father's Day I hope you can be together and I hope you get to hug each other and laugh a lot. At the end of the day that will be the best gift everytime.
