This year Father’s Day falls on the 18th June, it will be my husband’s second one as a dad, but his first without his own father around. So I want to get him special, yet unusual gifts for Father’s Day.
I always find the best place to find unusual gifts is online. If you search hard enough you can find little website gems, like UncommonGoods which have a fabulous selection of gifts for men for Father’s Day.
Listed below are some of my favourite finds from there.
Cheese and Crackers Serving Board.
I love the quirkiness of the board and I’m sure it’s a gift my husband would adore. If you want to go that step further, they also do a personalised chopping board for that extra special gift. Click here for personalised gifts.
“A snack spread simply isn’t a snack spread without cheese and crackers. Highlight the all-important “&” with this text-friendly cheeseboard, made from North American maple and featuring a teak oil finish. When it’s not smartly displaying a hearty feast of brie and rosemary crackers, this handsome design makes an artful addition to your kitchen sideboard or bar tabletop. Made in Dorset, Vermont.”
Glass Water Faucet
A very unusual gift, one I know my husband would appreciate. It would look great in our kitchen.
“Have that one room in your house that’s thirsty for style? This glass and metal faucet sculpture is sure to quench that thirst. Eyes will make double-takes as the flowing glass “water” will confound your guests. Handmade by Gary Guydosh in Pennsylvania, where glass has a distinctively rich history, this accent is created using classic glassblowing techniques and craftsmanship”
Spark Plug Plane Paperweight
How amazing is this? Plus as you can imagine each would be individual. It’s fantastic to recycle and find a use for unwanted parts like this artist has done. That’s what I like about UncommonGoods, their mission is to make the business is s sustainable as possible and make UncommonGoods more environmentally friendly, socially responsible and an ever-more rewarding place to work. They focus on organic, handmade and recycled goods. Isn’t that fab?
“Whether it lands in the hands of the person manning the cockpit of your company or the handyman or woman who always knows how to keep your household running, Brian Mock’s industrial paperweight provides a clever way to show how much you appreciate everything they do. Recycled spark plugs, butter knives, nut and bolts are welded together into the iconic shape of an airplane, giving this delightful mini-sculpture the power to take off with the conversation as it taxis around your desk, workshop or tool shed. Handmade in Beaverton, Oregon.”
These are just 3 of my favourite finds. If you head on over to UncommonGoods you can find more gifts here for men. There are many to choose from!
