Father’s Day is fast approaching, and you know me, I love to hunt around on Etsy for my favourite gift ideas. Sadly, Dan is going to be away on business in Europe for his first Father’s Day (I was away for my first Mother’s Day too!), so we’ll be making it up for him when he gets home. That buys me a little extra time, but if I’m going to order anything off Etsy I need to do it soon to make sure it gets here in time.
Here are a few things that caught my eye…
Dan loves to fly fish – even though he doesn’t get to do it too often. I thought these handmade wooden rod cases were pretty spectacular!
If the Dad in your life is into music, this is a nice genuine leather wallet come guitar pick holder.
For a dapper dude - some whiskey stones. I could see the guys on ‘Suits’ using these. Do you watch that show? So good.
Maybe more into wine? This wine and glass holder is gorge. I love the reclaimed wood.
Hmm there is a bit of a booze theme going on here. These at-home beer kits are sweet (except be warned that your guy might turn your basement into a home brewery). There are a bunch of options at different price points in the Etsy shop.
Got a handyman in your life? This engraved hammer is pretty clever.
Similarly, some customized BBQ tools are cute if the Dad in your life is into grilling.
Dan isn’t into sports memorabilia, but I could see this being a sweet gift for a baseball-loving fella.
This felt and leather ipad sleeve is pretty stunning.
What about some fun tee-shirts? There is this Dad one…
And a ‘Grandpa’ version too.
I LOVE this leather passport holder that you can have monogrammed. This might need to go on my future mother’s day list…
This watch made out of wood is seriously lovely. Apparently it is light and comfortable to wear – and even water resistant. So neat.
And lastly, this satchel bag is a beaut. Especially for a fella who might bike to work but doesn’t want to use a sporty backpack.
What do you think? Love any of these items? Don’t tell Dan, but I’m definitely thinking of ordering one of these… can’t spill all my secrets on here though in case he checks in!
