Fathers Day gift guide 2016

PAPA keyring bottle opener – Fourth Trimester Magazine – £4

Amy, founder of the wonderful FourthTri magazine, is known amongst the Instagram world as a woman who encourages support, self appreciation and body acceptance all with a splash of gin thrown in. Now she is helping dads to unwind after those long parenting days with this stealthy bottle opener.

DADA bracelet – Woody and Florence -£3.95

Woody & Florence’s handmade wax cotton bracelets look awesome  and are even available  in matching Mama/Dada sets!

Work Hard t-shirt – Nor-folk – £25

These Unisex t-shirts are classic with a contemporary twist that will suit anybody. They also come in children’s sizes so there are plenty of opportunities for twinning with the kids which always looks great in those Instagram squares.

Strength candle – Omcandleco – £12

This blend of black pepper, ginger and lime is designed to give courage, boast optimism and increase motivation, something we all need from time to time. These are much more than the standard home fragrance candles (which my husband is obsessed with) they are candles with a purpose and beneficial properties. They are all natural, ethical and eco friendly as well as stylish.

Modern family portrait – Paperpipedreams – £15

Putting a modern twist on the family portrait, Paper Pipe Dreams have drawn inspirations from Aztec, Tribal and African art  to create these beautiful monochrome portraits.

Elwood backpack – Tiba & Marl – £120

These unisex backpacks redefine baby bags with stylish, practical designs which last longer than your child’s nappy wearing days. Although you are likely to see them modelled by the gorgeous Mère Soeur , Cult of youth and Cherry Healey they are by no means just for women, just Check out this snap from Mere Soeur’s #theartofmotherhood launch to see for yourself. The biggest challenge is keeping yourself from stealing it.

Together we’re ten feet tall print – Anne-Marie Rickus – £25

This limited edition giclee print by Anne-Marie Rickus was inspired by her own husband and child and beautifully depicts a precious fatherhood moment. £1 from every sale is donated to SPACE a charity which provides a safe and friendly environment for children with additional needs. To order email a_rickus@hotmail.com  or contact her via social media.

Bowie badge – AlfieWinn – £5

These handmade shrink plastic badges are the perfect addition to all those backpacks out there. Who doesn’t love Bowie right?

Bearded man mugs – Southwood Stores – £20

These Bernard and Samuel mugs are microwave safe, making them ideal for those repeatedly reheated cups of coffee all parents experience. With their monochromatic, Scandinavian style they are on trend as well as quirky and fun.

 Yes pops cards – YesMum – £10.50

In the spirit of personal positivity, YesMum have now released YesPops cards. Their YesMum cards have been incredibly popular and now Dads are encouraged to embrace daily affirmation. Let your partner know they are doing a great job with these tiny fist-pumps for Fatherhood.

Teething necklace – Bo & Bel – £10

Bo & Bel have given dads the opportunity to comfort their teething child with these durable accessorises. Not only do they promote daddy, baby bonding but Bo & Bel also give 50% of their profits to Grief Encounter.

Congrats of the terrific beard mug – Veronica Dearly – £12.75

Veronica Dearly’s humorous mugs celebrate all those hipsters and fashionably bearded gentlemen. Every mum loves a compliment about her hair so why not show your appreciation for a well kept beard.

Slim Jyms – The Bright Company – £54

If there was ever an opportunity for a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, whole family huddled in one bed, photoshoot then this is it. Family Pyjama days are now a thing of the future, just ask Olympian Greg Rutherford.

Breaking Dad sweatshirt – Parent Apparel – £40

You may have seen Mother Pukka’s #parentingtheshitoutoflife  jumper, they’re fantastic but dangerous once your little one starts to read, so instead I offer you the ‘Breaking Dad’ sweatshirt. You can check out Tom Fletcher modelling it here.
