Father’s Day is just around the corner – that one day in the year when we get to honour the ‘superhero’ father’s grandfathers and baby daddies in our lives, thanking them for all that they do and all that they have done.
I love buying gifts for people and I enjoy seeking out gifts that are a little on the unusual side, so I was thrilled when I discovered UncommonGoods, as they have a huge range of unique gift ideas for men.
Founded in 1999 and headquartered in New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that endeavours to feature unique jewellery, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people. They make it their mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers, and are proud to say that 50% of what they sell is made by hand.
To properly introduce you to the brand, I thought I would share a few of my favourite Father’s Day gift ideas with you.
First up are these Stainless Steel Bottle Opener Cufflinks, which have been designed with the needs of the wearer in mind. The chic shape isn’t just intriguing, it’s functional: the sturdy “teeth” pry lids off bottles with a flick of the wrist. It’s a great gift for dad.
If like me, you like to add a personal touch to your gifts, you will be delighted to know that you can personalise gifts on the site. This Personalised Cutting Board is a functional keepsake, handcrafted from richly grained maple and can be personalised with your family name or a forename name along the top.
Next up is this Copper Rain Gauge, which turns Archimedes’ fun principle of water displacement into a unique and stylish garden accessory. Perfect for garden enthusiasts and dad’s that like to comment on or complain about the weather.
How cool is this Industrial Paperweight that’s been handcrafted into the shape of an airplane using recycled spark plugs, butter knives, nut and bolts? It would make the perfect addition to a desk, workshop or tool shed.
If you are looking for some original and unusual gifts for the chaps in your life this father’s Day, then i would highly recommend shopping with UncommonGoods, especially as they now offer delivery to the UK. Plus, they also have some unique birthday gift ideas for men as well.
