Daddy, Daddy Cool. Finding a Fabulous Father’s Day Gift.
Buying gifts for men always seems to take a bit more thinking. At Duck Barn, we pride ourselves in having fabulous hand selected gifts that make your shopping for Father’s Day (16th June 2019) easy and simple. Whether you’re buying for your own Dad, for a first Daddy Day gift, for your Grandad or Father-in-Law, we’ve got some lovely ideas for his special day…
Our Fire Pits are bound to be loved (Small and Medium Available)
I’ve got two gifts to buy this year. One is for my amazing Dad. He is one of those people who would do anything for anyone, and I am lucky to be able to call him my friend too. He is also quite easy to buy for. He’s appreciative of gifts that truly mean something, ones that link to a memory or ones that are truly thought about. He still has a water colour painting I did for him when I was about 7 (I vowed to be an artist when I was a grown up, which, if you could see my drawing skills now you see I’ve not moved past my ‘talent’ at that age…) and he’s got it framed in his kitchen. He genuinely loves it. He’s also hugely house proud and has a few Duck Barn products already, namely one of our large wooden ducks (Gerald), a wire weave fairy lamp, the skinny mugs and an egg run in his kitchen. Being outdoors is where he is most happy, and as he is currently reorganising his garden, I may treat him to a lantern to use on the patio with his new outdoor table and chairs and a fire pit because (and I know I am playing to that stereotype), what man doesn’t love playing with fire?!
The second gift I have to buy is from our boys for my husband Paul. He’s a little trickier than my Dad. One of the wonderful things about working from home (thank you Tracy), is that Paul usually sees the products that I am uploading to Duck Barn and, when he sees something he likes, he lets me know with a not so subtle “Ooooh, I like that,”- so this year I am getting him one of our super stylish cement doorstops (which if I’m completely honest is also a gift for me!) and a matching fire pit, so he and my Pa can swap notes!
If, like the two important fathers in my life, yours likes the great outdoors we have a whole host of gifts to suit. Why not consider the Farringdon Welly Boot Stand or the Welly Boot Jack? They are simple & stylish for Dads who dog walk or need a little help getting boots off! He may also love a gorgeous new comfy dog bed from our Pets range - for man’s best friend. We also love our Farringdon Bird Feeder: perfectly designed for an apple or fat ball - sure to be loved by green fingered fathers!
We’ve just added to our duck collection with some fun professional ducks including police officers and paramedics. We have a fun colourful range of cycling ducks too, complete with matching helmets - I adore them! They are sure to bring a smile with a personalised name tag of your choice. Why not name your duck Daddy, Grandad or pick a name that’s sentimental to you? Plus, we can even gift wrap these for complete ease. (Just a little reminder that these personalised gifts can take a few extra days to come, so do order them soon if you’d like one.)
For those Dads who like a tipple or two, why not gift one of our beech wood wine stands? Choose from the engraved words: ‘His’, ‘Wine’ or ‘Cheers’ and combine with his favourite bottle of plonk (which you could help him drink- bonus!). We also have matching wine racks in the same gorgeous beech wood, to make it a truly special gift (especially if you start to fill the rack).
We love these Wooden Cyclist Ducklings. (Available in 5 different colour ways and personalisation.)
We’ve put together a section on our website with lots more ideas, from candles to artworks, for those needing some gift inspiration and head over to our Pinterest page for a peek at our Father’s Day board. We are giving you 15% off (until Midnight on 9th June) using code DADDYCOOL just to make it even easier!
As always, if you need any assistance in making the right choice, please do get in touch and we would love to help you out- all our gifts are hand selected by us making them all the more special and not the average high street purchase- Hoorah!
Wishing you all a wonderful Father’s Day that is full of fun and memory making.
