Father’s Day lands on the third Sunday of every June, meaning this year’s celebration is on Sunday 17th June. 2018 marks 108 years since the nation’s first official Father’s Day, in which the entire country recognised that honouring fathers was just as important as honouring mothers. There are numerous stories that detail how the day itself began (usually there’s a doting daughter to thank), but what’s important to remember is that with an estimated 19 million fathers in the UK, there’s only one day to make yours feel particularly special. Here are our favourite gifts that will do just that:
1. Our Saddle Leather Mini Bar is a wonderfully unique gift. It’s a portable vintage mini bar equipped with all your drinks cabinet essentials, upholstered in our beautiful nut brown leather, with two handles on either side to make it travel-friendly. There’s even a hidden drawer revealing six small stainless steel tumblers for that extra James Bond-esque feel. £658
2. The regal Marengo Horse Bust is named after the famous war mount of Napoleon. Made from terracotta and glazed to a blue-grey with a very distressed finish, it’s a majestic piece, perfect when positioned in pride of place upon a mantelpiece or bookshelf. £28
3. Our Faux Shagreen Photo Frame is an attractive and original take on a traditional frame, making your memories stand out. Just fill with a favourite family photo for the perfect Father’s Day gift. £94
4. This standout Anji Candle Holder resembles a giant stem of bamboo and has been hand-painted to a distressed antique green finish. The beauty of this piece is that no two are alike, which only adds to its hand-crafted charm. £25
