Father's Day is Sunday 2nd September - a day to celebrate the special men in our lives; our Fathers and our Grandfathers.

Because Dads can be notoriously hard to buy for -  there's only so many socks and bbq tongs one man can need - we've curated a unique collection of one off, handmade and ethical gifts for each type of Dad.

There's literally something for every Father - for all ages and all tastes, and the best bit is you won't find any of these gifts elsewhere in Australia. Exclusive and One off Gifts is what we do best. Gifts as Unique as your Dad is.

The Hipster dad

There isn't an agreed upon definition for a Hipster these days, although for most of us the word would conjure up images of a bearded, craft beer-loving coffee drinker. For that kind of cool hipster-ish dad, the guy who is a little bit out there and loves his accessories we have the Leather Bracelets by Singapore Designer Gnome & Bow. 

The City Slicker

Executive office attire is less and less about suits and ties these days. Instead the City Slicker heads to meetings wearing dark pants paired with a crisp coloured business shirt. Replacing the tie as the essential City Slicker accessory is the French Cuff adorned with eye catching cufflinks. For the Dad who loves to be seen in different coloured cufflinks every day of the week we have these handcrafted resin cufflinks. So many to choose from for Dad's cufflink collection.

Footy Loving Sports Mad Dad

Whether he plays sport or loves to watch his favourite team beat the opposition, the Sports obsessed Dad would be thrilled with this very unique wallet, ethically handcrafted from a recycled Gilbert rugby ball. He'll also be impressed that his gift has made a difference to the lives of the artisans who made it in Cambodia. A meaningful gift with purpose from Friends 'n' Stuff

For patriotic Aussie Dads who support the Wallabies, Socceroos and/or the Kangaroos it would be hard to find a more perfect gift than these funky Green and Gold cufflinks.

Tech-Mad Dad

The techy Dad with all his latest gadgets and devices needs cases for those devices that are durable and practical, but also stylish. For those Dads the Unite Felt Laptop Case makes perfect sense. Just look at its sleek leather detailing. Available in two laptop sizes.

If your Techy Dad upgrades his phone each time Apple release a new one, why not gift him one of these Leather Iphone Flip Cases. These luxurious leather cases are hand stitched in a choice of colours, and fit the Iphone 7, 8 and X. Just pick his favourite colour and make his day with this gift.

Travel Loving Dad

If Dad travels for work or pleasure he'll need the latest travel essentials. He'll be very happy checking in for his flight with the sleek leather Passport Holder by Gnome and Bow.

Bangkok based Bag Designer and Craftsman Matsapon Soisangwan, aka Mat Archer, has thought of everything in his design of the Merge Messenger Bag. This stunning Man Bag is stylish, waterproof and practical - it even includes a leather strap that passes over trolley case handles, what a perfect idea for the travel lover.

 

The Stylish and Discerning Dad

Any of the gifts in this gift guide would appeal to the Stylish Dad; the guy who enjoys the good things in life, demands quality and is discerning in his choices. However we've chosen a couple of extra special pieces just for him. The first is the hand-stitched Leather Wallet and Iphone Case Set, available in a choice of 4 colours. 

Both items from this set are also available to buy separately. The Wallet is one of the most multi-functional wallets we've seen with its copious amounts of storage and a separate sizeable zip up coin section.

The piece de la resistance for the Stylish Dad would be these Sterling Silver handcut Blue Ceramic Cufflinks from Future Traditions. Geometric and irregular shapes for the Dad who deserves the best things in life.

Socially Conscious or Eco-Warrior Dad

Temples and Markets is a store that only showcases products made ethically. Any of the gifts in this guide would appeal to the Dad with a Social Conscience, the guy who wants to do good in the world and affect positive change. However these are gifts we've chosen especially for the Eco Warrior Dad and he'll just love the stories behind them.

We have an extensive Ammo range of Men's Jewellery that includes Rings, Pendant Necklaces and Cufflinks. Ammo Designs in Cambodia is a Social Enterprise that produces jewellery from recycled bullet casings, and provides apprenticeships to young or disadvantaged Cambodians in Siem Reap. 

Friends ‘n’ Stuff is another Cambodia based social business, run by  Friends-International which enables parents across Southeast Asia to generate an income. Friends 'n' Stuff creatively transforms everyday materials to help empower families, like this Backpack come Laptop bag handmade from recycled tyre inner tubing and canvas. A man bag that truly is a gift with meaning.

This Black Wallet has also been handcrafted from recycled tyre inner tubing and is the perfect accessory for the Eco-Warrior Dad.

 

Grandad

Older Dads and Grandads aren't forgotten in our guide and neither should they be. They've had so many more years of receiving handkerchiefs or chocolates on Father's Day, that they would be delighted to receive a more thoughtful and original gift like the Luxurious Leather Portfolio.

 

Grandads would also be delighted to receive the attractive brass money clip, a classic gift with a story to tell. Also by Cambodian based Social Enterprise Ammo.

We really do have a unique gift for every Dad. Each gift has a story and we hope you can share those stories with those special men in your life this Father's Day.
