Using it’s usual swiftness, Father’s Day, typically, is already sneaking up on us. With all that’s happened this year, it’s more essential than ever to let the people you love know how much they mean to you. Dad’s love their gardens (that’s a fact) and our Home and Lifestyle section is brimming with unique and charming items that can spruce up outdoor spaces during summer. To help get your creative juices flowing, we’ve compiled a few gift ideas for the 21st June that’ll earn a permanent spot in the garden and get you in the good books.
First off, these delightful Little Garden Birds are the perfect accompaniment to any summer evening dinner. Made from a hand-finished musky brushed resin with gold and green details on the feathers, this colourful pair ooze quality and will add a natural, warm personality to the garden.
Add a quirky element to your Dad’s plants by gifting him these beautifully Rustic Milk Churns, available in all sizes. Perfect for all flowers and plants, they’ll give the garden an added distinctiveness. They also have variability, looking fantastic for desks, window sills or outside and suitable for all types of plants and flowers. Their vintage style would also go perfectly with the Little Garden Birds (if you’re feeling generous).
We also adore this detailed, vintage style Moroccan Lantern that lights up any garden, even after the candle’s out. Mixing an aged, vintage look with a high quality build, this lantern is an ideal accompaniment for those relaxing summer evenings, especially with a lit candle inside. As you can see, the floral detailed lattice on the outside exhibits genuine class. Again, this ornament would be a perfect accompaniment for our other vintage style, rustic products.
Along with our Little Garden Birds, we also have other high quality, rustic animal ornaments that will get your Dad excited to add a distinctive personality to the garden. Cast in iron with a stunning rusty finish, this exquisite Snail Sculpture, hidden in the plants or exploring the table, brings the garden to life.
These Rusty Baby Pig Ornaments are cast in iron and exude a genuine rusty finish that maintains a vintage theme. Built durably and with character in mind, these robust pigs will be a permanent fixture inside or outside and come in both Large and Small sizes, perfect for any space. All of these animal ornaments will make your Dad’s garden feel even more alive for Father’s Day, so why not complete the set?
This beautiful copper coloured tin of Faux Succulents is a wonderful and long lasting arrangement that will add a spark to any outdoor area. These arrangements are hand made by us, so you know you’re getting the very best. Whether you favour modern or traditional design, these tins are an ideal centrepiece.
Whether you’re picking strawberries in the back garden, scrumping in the woods or foraging for mushrooms, this irresistably English Willow Trug is the perfect excuse to get out and about with your Dad. Hand woven from durable unpeeled willow, that abundant allotment will be harvested with a floruish.
Continuing with our animal theme, these characterful animal pot hangers are the ideal way to give your Dad’s garden an edge. The Garden Rabbit Pot Hanger is a new addition we’ve been excited about for a while. Hand finished with a charming bronze effect, this lively rabbit bravely hangs neatly from the edge of any garden pot. Our audacious Hedgehogs and Snails aren’t giving up either and, hand0finished in a beautiful bronze, would be durable additions to a lively garden.
One of our most majestic and show stopping ornaments is this elegant Grand Stag Candle Holder. Cast in heavy metal with an excellent aged patina, the Grand Stag, at 42cm tall, will sit remarkably at the centrepiece of any garden table. This stunning ornament has been designed to stylishly hold three chapel candles or tea lights and emits class with it’s subtle characteristics in all seasons. In our opinion, a sure fire way of avoiding any possibility of disappointment on Father’s Day, but we wouldn’t blame you for treating yourself either.
