It’s that time of year again! As we head into mid-June, Father’s Day tends to creep up on us unnoticed. With such a song and dance made of Mother’s Day its patriarchal counterpart can seem like it was created as an afterthought so that ‘The Poppa’ wasn’t left out. Before you know it, you’ve reached Sunday present-less and feeling like an awful child. Not this year! With the better part of a week before the big day, make up for any past failings (or just keep up the good work!) by getting your old man a special gift from among the collection at IndependentBoutique.com…
Cufflinks are a classic. Practical yet decorative, they are the ultimate example of a gift that’s of use and ornament. These Mirpuri Ripples Cuff Links are sophisticated and stylish. Made from sterling silver and inset with Onyx Cabochons, they are perfect for work wear whilst their unique design means they hold their own amongst more ‘showy’ offerings. Sushilla Jewellery produces some real attention grabbers. Their Tallulah Cufflinks come in a range of coloured stones including a passionate Druzy Pink however this Black Druzy number is equally as stunning for any Father wanting to cut a dash. The rough cut stone is set in solid silver and gold plated to create a gorgeous set that’s smart enough for any occasion.
For a more daring Dad, Harriet Bedford’s Bulldog Cufflinks will serve as a cheeky addition to his wardrobe. Full of character, these inquisitive hounds are made from sterling silver and are subtly and very stylishly rebellious! Whether he’s a dog-lover or a switched on Anglophile, these are the perfect gift!
Having hopped straight from Jubilee festivities to the European Championships, now’s as good a time as any to whip out those national flags! Failing that, this necklace from Cabinet can fulfil any Father’s patriotic urges. It’s not the infamous three lions (on the England shirt-for any football-phobes) however, this sterling silver and 9ct gold plate lion, suspended on 20″ curb chain, is both fun and easy to wear. Its discreet size and understated majesty will charm for years to come.
And if you can prise him away from watching England’s footballers in action, this Miniature Spitfire Gold pendant is a small, but powerful ode to the British Air Force. Taken from Cabinet’s Spitfire collection, it was inspired by a beautiful sculpture made by a Cabinet Grandfather and former RAF pilot. For history buffs and aeroplane fanatics alike, this truly beautiful piece of jewellery will be a timeless delight.
After you’ve splashed your cash on a special Father’s Day gift you might want to send him a reminder to keep his own finances in order. This card and note wallet from Heidi Mottram is made from sumptuously soft eel skin and measures 10.8 x 8.6cm. Boasting 6 card slots and 1 note section, he’ll have no problem organising his plastic and paper with this to hand. Available in dark navy or dark grey for £55.00 this quality piece will slot nicely into a pocket for a mature and practical pressie.
So, with ample warning and some brill items on show; there’s no excuse for not making this Father’s Day memorable for the right reasons!
