Father’s Day Gift Guide 2022Posted on 27th May 2022
Show the father figure in your life just how much you love him this Father’s Day (Sunday 19th June) with a tip-top treat from one of Bristol Market’s super-talented, independent makers!
Simply visit our Makers Marketplace – a lovingly-curated online directory of top-notch creatives and producers – and discover a whole host of treats, suitable for every kind of dad and every kind of budget, all easily ordered from the comfort of your sofa and delivered direct to your (or your dad’s) door.
Here are a just few examples of some of the lovely stuff on offer…
A cheering card is a must on celebratory days, and something with a bit of quirk and individuality will always trump the anodyne offerings of the high street. Get on board with the Just A Card campaign and support brilliant independents by snapping up one of these colour-popping beauts by designers Laura Louise Vincent and East Rabbit.
For a nicely spicy treat, pick up a selection of delicious, small-batch chilli jams from Easton Chilli (flavours include salted pineapple, wild garlic, blood orange and pink ginger) and a bar or two of the heaven-scented, skin-smoothing Ginger & Lime soap by Wylder Naturals. We love their zingy Lemongrass & Coconut Milk and Peppermint & Pink Grapefruit creations too!
A bespoke gift is the perfect way to show someone just how much you care. Choose a handcrafted leather wallet from Wild Origin – a delightful present in itself, but all the more special when personalised with the recipient’s name or initials. Or, how about a one-of-a-kind portrait by illustrator Good Morning Creations? Simply send some photos of your loved one and a little info about the things they like, and Elle will cleverly capture their unique loveliness in pen and ink!
Cool clobber for adventurous types is always a winner and this tee from Poison Oak Apparel is perfect for that wild swimmer in your life (they also have just the thing for surf dudes, dive fans, bikers and the van life crew). For even wilder swimmers, a shark shirt by Mr Christopher Hill will be a big hit! Christopher’s wonderful, wildlife-inspired designs (clothing and prints) feature sea creatures, big cats, birds, snakes and more.
A little upgrade on those bog-standard bathroom essentials is always a welcome treat to receive. A stylish wash bag from Badger House Leather will be loved for many years and is perfect for stuffing full of lavish extras. How about an earth-friendly shaving soap from Wild Grove which will add a little spa-like luxury to the daily shave? We recommend throwing in one of their marvellously-monikered ‘Monkey Farts’ shampoo bars too!
