Mama Knows Best… Father’s Day Gifts Guide 2017

by Saskia from Share The Joy Media

It’s time to give the Fathers in our lives the kudos they deserve! So here it goes: a list of goodies that will make the perfect ‘we love you’ gesture whether you’re buying on behalf of your brood or treating your own ‘old man’. Look out for the MamaTribe picks, straight off the shelves of our members.

Philbert Macbook Keyboard Covers

Grubby keys, no more. If your man works on-the-go, there’s a good chance his laptop keyboard is less than hygienic, and possibly a little unsightly. Give his digits a cushiony treat and his Macbook a new lease of life with this uber cool keyboard cover from Philbert (stocked at Gift Pop). This Danish design is sleek, stylish, and will provide the most precise protection for his keyboard – keeping out dirt, dust, and spillages. Practical and pleasing on the eye; perfect. These keyboard covers come in a range of colours as well as a macho camo effect. // Gift Pop // £16.00 // MAMATRIBE MEMBER

Jojo & Moo Organic FATHERHOOD Print T-Shirt

There’s no better day to celebrate the treasure that is parenthood – or more specifically for him, FATHERHOOD. This minimal, organic cotton tee with FATHERHOOD motto is a cool statement of pride for any man who’s not afraid to declare his love for the role of DAD. Also available in Black and Melange. // Jojo & Moo // £16.99 // MAMATRIBE MEMBER

‘Fell Asleep Here’ Vintage Hand Stamped Teaspoon Book Mark

One for the refined gentleman in your life; we love this vintage hand-stamped teaspoon which has been beautifully crafted to take its new life as a book mark. It comes adorned with the saying ‘fell asleep here’ which we’re certain most dads will relate to…  // OneMamaOneShed // £10.00 // MAMATRIBE MEMBER

Personalised Hand & Foot Foil Print

It’s not just us mummies who swoon at those little hands and toes… those fleetingly tiny digits are precious to every parent and grandparent – so what better way to remember them than with an elegant hand & foot print. This personalised print is bespoke, made from a photograph you send in, created out of a metallic or coloured foil of your choice. // Print279 // £14.00 // MAMATRIBE MEMBER

Hanno The Gorilla

If you want to spend on something unique this Father’s Day, say ‘Hanno!’ to this gorgeous wooden gorilla. A toy-turned-ornament, he’s perfect sat on the office desk or near the kids toybox, ready for imaginary fun both father & son will enjoy. How can a simple beechwood sculpture have so much character! // Modern Minor // £99.95

Personalised Lightning Bolt T-Shirt

Another fashion find, this personalised tee is a solid purchase on its own but it’s the fact you can buy a kid’s size too which makes it a real winner! If the thought of your little and large ‘twinning’ makes your heart skip, this hand screen-printed top will be a fab choice. Simply add their initials and pick their favourite colour (for the lightning bolt). Print with water based environmentally friendly inks – for that ‘eco’ touch. // Mina And The Moon // £15.00 // MAMATRIBE MEMBER

The XL Man Box

We had to put something edible on the list, because what dad wouldn’t love a hamper full of treats that the kids can’t pinch. Hand-picked in the Cotswolds, The XL Man Box from Ross & Ross features artisan beer, meat, crackling, and chutney. Also available in a cider version; this box is completely eco-friendly and has a minimum three-month shelf life – Which means you can buy it now but they can choose to devour it next time they need a parenting pick-me-up. // Ross & Ross // £40.00

Vida Vida Leather Satchel/Laptop Bag

Hurray for the man bag! It’s the perfect excuse to make him lug around the spare clothes and wet wipes for a change. We love Vida Vida’s simple, masculine satchels which exude casual class. A gift that will last for many Father’s Days to come. // Vida Vida // From £50.00
