Father’s Day Gift Inspiration

 Stuck for ideas?


Men! Dads! – What kind of gift do you get for one? Something practical? Something chocolatey? Why not treat your dad with great fairly traded gift. Perfect for him and perfect for the artisans who made the products. That is because those artisans are paid a fair price and are able to work in decent conditions.


Father’s Day Gift Inspiration One – ‘The Golfist’

A staple of any man gift – a pair of socks from Braintree. Made from bamboo, in vibrant jaffa and green colour. Excellent for standing out in any crowd. Item two – a pair of cufflinks from Just Trade. Carved from the tagua nut to form a golf ball, then finished with plated silver backs. Made in Ecuador. Item three – the perfect card to finish. A Cards from Africa card. Each one is handmade by a young adult in Rwanda, orphaned because of disease.
