Support local with these Father’s Day gift ideas

May 27, 2020, Author: Bianca Spinner

It’s a little early to start planning gift ideas for Dad, however, we think he deserves a little extra love this Father’s Day. Dads are superheroes and let’s be honest: They’re way better at goofing around, letting the kids fly high and playtime. So, support local, small businesses this year whilst spoiling your pops with one of these.


Gift Dad with his furry friends face on a pair of socks

Quite possibly the best gift idea we’ve stumbled upon all year! These funky, trendy, colorful socks can be personalized with your dads favorite pooch or felines face on them, you select a background, a color, a photo and walla!

Why not order matching ones for the whole family? The socks are avilable in dads, moms and kiddies sizes!

Custom dog/cat socks go for R120

Gift Dad with his own jar of personalised cookies from Tailorbaked

This local talented confectioner makes the most delectable cakes and now just for Fathers Day you can collect these incredibly scrumptious home made zoo like biscuits. Not only do they come with the cutest tag lines but they’re only R90 for a box of 8 freshly baked biscuits! The 1 liter glass jar is R170 and the 2 liter glass jar is R280.

Gift Dad with a mask from Sexy Socks

We’re obsessed with their three-ply fabric face masks. Not only do they come in the sexiest designs ensuring that Dad is on trend, this proudly South African company also makes the masks from fabric off cuts otherwise designed for landfill. Plus, a portion of the proceeds goes towards more masks for those most vulnerable and for every pair of socks sold, they give a pair of school socks to a child in need. The Sexy Masks cost R55 each.

Gift Dad with a funky bracelet from Lunareign

These one-of-a-kind, boho inspired jewels are so damn cool. Plus, they’re insanely affordable at R100 a bracelet. We advise you get real mushy and order matching ones for the whole family, like “best friends forever” or “soulmates”, or go simple and choose one with the word “Dad”. You can select any colour and bead type you want and create your very own masterpiece.
