Whether you’re spending Father’s Day with your dad or your chosen family at home, (or you’ve actually managed to bag a dinner booking) there’s still time to get the perfect gift before June 20. But if you want to make a real difference this year, you might want to consider using this opportunity to support a Black-owned business. Here are some of our favourites.
For the dad who likes a condiment
For the dad who will still be BBQing in September
There’s nothing wrong with gifting your dad socks, especially when they’re the type that’s generally not fussed about gifts. This jacquard pair is super soft, and made from organic cotton. They’re also a bit longer than your standard, so there won’t be a flash of ankle between shoe and trouser-end.
For the dad who never says no to a nightcap
Combining the methods and ingredients used in the rum-making process in Jamaica, Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize, this rum adds a London spin with vanilla, gold cherry, and roasted coffee-bean notes. A special edition to your dad’s drinks cabinet.
For the dad returning to the office
A grown-up lunchbox (with no plastic in sight) might be just the trick for dads dipping their toes back into the commute. The nifty roll clips keep everything secure (though not leakproof) and the containers are all dishwasher safe, too.
For the dad who is sick of his peace lily
For the dad who never says no to a brew
For the dad who’s eco-conscious
For the dad who uses whatever is in the shower
For the dad with loves to sport a full beard
For the dad who loves a soak
For the dad who still wears the free fleece from his company’s 5K
For the (very) new dad
For the dad who has worn Davidoff since 2002
For the dad who is decidedly not a “trainer guy”
For the dad who shoots hoops
This colourful basketball from designer Yinka Ilori is part of a limited-edition run. The basketball was formed as part of Ilori’s design of Canary Wharf’s first ever basketball court in Bank Street Park.
[Editor’s note: This basketball is available to pre-order now.]
For the dad who says he doesn’t want anything
And finally … something to wrap his gift in
We really like this tropical orange-and-white paper from Tihara Smith.
