Fathers day gifts made easy

22 May 2017

Dear friend,

I don't know about you but I always find it a struggle to get suitable Father's day gifts. I never know what to buy for my own Father or for Imperfect dad from the boys. What do you buy? I always want to find something a bit different but I usually end up going for the usual gifts of toiletries or a nice bottle of something. But this year I was determined to find something different and then I was contacted by Tom from Uncommon goods and was bowled over with the concept behind the company. 

Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique jewelry, designer d├ęcor, 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; in fact, half of what they sell is made by hand. At the core of the company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is our responsibility to use our business to impact the world in a positive way.

When I started to look on the site I was amazed by the quality and diversity of the gifts on offer. Thank you for solving my Father's Day dilemma! I am going to share with you a few of my favourite gifts for Fathers on their special day. Here are my:

Top gifts for Dad

1. Beeropoly beer game:  Perfect for parties or just to start the weekend right, Beeropoly invites players to quaff their way through a series of beer challenges- from a rhyming competition to demonstrating their best dance moves. Players take turns rolling the dice (included) and moving their bottle cap pieces around the handmade pine wood board. They complete the beer challenges along the way. The last man or woman standing must drink the Community Cup. Cheers!

Price in euros 34.69.

I think my husband would like this and I love the look of the board too.

2. Personalised Family Print: Mary and Shelly Klein's personalized artwork. Choose skin tones, hair, and clothing color to create a lovely lineup, then customize with your family name and the year you were established as a quirky clan. Framed print.

Price in Euros 74.33- 123.89

I'd love this more than hubby I think but I also think this is a lovely present for a grandparent. I could just see this on my parents wall at home.

3. Whiskey and Rum making Kit: You don't need to work in a distillery to age and season your favorite spirits like a pro. Fashioned in timeless style, this handsome barrel is more than just an eye-catching centerpiece: like its big siblings found in professional distilleries, it can actually age your spirits to peak flavor. Take mixology into your own hands and create your own signature Highland malt scotch whiskey, spiced rum, or full-bodied Kentucky bourbon.

Price in Euros 74.33

The perfect gift for the men in my life as both my dad and hubby are huge Whiskey fans and they would love this.

4. Record Clock:  Rock around the clock with artist Jeff Davis handmade timepiece. Keeping the tradition of vinyl LPs alive, Davis was inspired by the iconic appeal of long lost album covers, record logos and vinyl's glossy texture, when designing these musical keepsakes. Choose from a  Rock, Jazz, Soul or 80s album to keep you on beat and on time!

Price in Euros: 37.66

This would be a great birthday gift too. My Dad would love this!

5. Whiskey wedge:
  Enjoy your favorite spirits perfectly chilled--but not watered down--by filling the silicone mold with water and freezing to form a diagonally bisected glass. Great for whiskey and design enthusiasts alike.

Price in euros: 17.79

Hubby would be proud to hold this stylish glass. Beautiful design and practical too.

6. Grandparent and Grandchild letter book set: Take a moment and keep in touch with this keepsake letter book. Brimming with personal prompts, this set of 40 cards is to be sent and shared between grandparents and their grandchildren. Once completed, stow the letters in the secret pockets of the book so you can look back, remember your bond, and pass it down from generation to generation. 

Price in Euros 39.64

Artist Whitney Scott Biggs's mother died suddenly from cancer while Biggs was going through her mother's desk, she discovered scribbled lists, notes, and handwritten tidbits that became her treasured keepsakes. With her friends Sabra Miller and Janice Maples, she created these letter journals as a way for generations to connect and remember each other. What an amazing idea!

Seriously you have to check out the uncommon goods site it is well organised, easy to navigate and beautifully put together. If you are looking for a special gift such as a gift for graduation or personalised presents for kids then look no further. The variety and quality of gifts available here is excellent.
