Father’s Day Gift Guide, Part 2

Put a smile on dad’s face this Father’s Day (20th June) with a gift from one of the many talented creatives featured on our Makers Marketplace online directory. With over 100 independent makers to browse, you’ll find perfectly unique, artisan treats for the rad dad, step-papa or father figure in your life!

Here’s our second round-up of some of our brilliant makers offering excellent gifts this Father’s Day…

Laura Louise Vincent is a designer and typographer with a passion for bright and bold imagery. If you’re bored of all the usual Father’s Day cards (not all dads like cricket!) then look no further than Laura’s designs which are sassy, cheery and ever so slightly cheeky.

A pair of PJs from Pajama Pantry are perfect for bed, but also the beach, beer garden and sofa days. Made from natural cotton and hand-printed in India, there are lots of exquisite styles to choose from, so you’ll find just the thing for Pops to lounge about in.

If your dad’s a fan of skin ink, he will love a satisfyingly big, tattoo-inspired mug from Emma Puddick Pottery. Decorated with old-school heart and anchor motifs and a banner inscribed with ‘Dad’ or ‘Daddy’, it will quickly become his favourite to have a brew in!

Maybe Mabel is a slow-fashion brand producing high-quality bags in practical, stylish fabrics. One of their spacious wash bags – created using sustainable British wax canvas, recycled leather and wool – would really up dad’s travel kit game.

A big box of vegan brownies from Dark Matters is sure to put a smile on dad’s face. Choose from peanut butter swirl, raspberry double choc, salted caramel and many more besides. You could even buy a brownie ‘slab’ with a personalised message written in chocolate – winner!

Peggy May Macramé makes retro macramé goodies with a colourful modern twist. Her plant hanger design is an ideal gift for dads who love their plant babies as much as their offspring, or for dads who have trouble keeping track of their car keys, a colour-popping keychain would be just the ticket.

Wendy Calder Ceramics produces beautifully understated earthenware creations including mugs, pots and bird feeders. Wendy also offers one-to-one sessions on the potter’s wheel in her studio – a unique Father’s Day treat to remember.

Using age-old knotting processes to create bold and colourful pieces of jewellery, Handmade by Tinni is headed up by designer Paulomi. Drop her a line and she can make one of her cool rope bracelets in your dad’s favourite colours, or even a matching pair for you both!
