Life Moments With Dad
6th June 2018
Father’s Day is not just a one day celebration but also a day to reflect all of the big and small life moments with dad, remembering them with a smile. This month we put together a collection of thoughtful gifts for dads around the world and all types of dads: the handy DIY dad to the music loving dad, the hardworking dad to the fun dad. Bring a smile to his face or brighten his everyday routine with a mug, elegant cufflink or even a screwdriver set. As a thank you gift and a memorable token for the memories shared through the cloudiest of days to glowing sunshine.
After a hard days work, sit down to a relaxing cup of tea with this fun mug from Takae Mizutani and Sons that has a hidden message inside. To the hardworking dad, after sipping the tea “Feel human again?” “A cup of tea makes everything better doesn’t it?”
The mug comes in two colours. Wishing dad would feel rejuvenated after a cup while sailing on the yellow or blue sea and be ready to face the challenges of the next day.
For the dads around the world who love reading magazines, catching up on the news, or favourite books, we suggest the innovative DETRAY. No need to reach far or worry about spilled milk anymore with this flexible tray by the side. Made of hardwood oak strips placed on a piece of fabric, it easily rests on cushions and arm rests of any size. At the end of the day just roll it up to put away.
Sometimes it is not easy to snap beautiful objects with perfect lighting and complementing background. We picked out the Lightcase Pro, a pop up photostudio, to help creative dads snap pro photos on their camera or smartphones. This Lightcase enhances and diffuses natural light to create an even, reflection-free background and softer shadows.
Does dad have a favourite drink? Is it hot or cold? The Therma Cup is useful for all seasons and can help insulate the hot drink dad needs that day for up to an hour, also without burning his fingers while holding it wherever he goes. It is made of bone china and introduces a new experience hopefully make life smoother for dad.
An ideal gift for any creative, handy dad. It’s the moment to put together a furniture, the moment to fix a cabinet or the moment to work on that DIY project. In these moments it would be nice to have a set of handy screwdrivers all in one place and small to carry around.
The No.1, No.2 and No.3 Screwdriver sets were designed with all those moments in mind and more. Designed by Justin Holmes, he sought to have these sets meet the requirements of comfort, quality and simplicity. The high quality bits (phillips, pozi and flat) are of a standard size and can be substituted for other varieties, easily replaced when worn out.
This guitar pick is perfect for the musician, rising rock star dad or music loving dad. The swallow motif guitar pick is hand printed and dyed on both sides by designer and maker Sally Lees.

A token and in memory of dads who remind us and reflect the magnificence of this stag frozen and forever thought of behind melted glass. It is ideal for adding a touch of individuality.
