Father's Day Gifts from Recycled Materials via Gifts Less Ordinary

Thursday, June 8, 2017

It's Father's Day coming up in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, and so I'm led to believe, in other parts of the world, too.

I've never understood why Father's Day isn't celebrated on the same day in other countries that mark the occasion.  For example here in Australia and in New Zealand, Father's Day falls on the first Sunday of the month, in Brazil the second Sunday in August, and Thai fathers are celebrated on December 5th!  Father's Day fun facts seen here.

Anyway, because Father's Day is celebrated in quite a large volume this Sunday 18 June and what with my own Dad living in the UK, I've been researching some unique gift ideas on Gifts Less Ordinary.

Gifts Less Ordinary is a "one-stop marketplace displaying beautiful and memorable gifts to treasure." Many of the gifts available to buy via Gifts Less Ordinary can be personalised. If you're shopping for a hard-to-buy-for loved one, do take a look. I've been inspired. Here are my picks for unique Father's Day gifts on Gifts Less Ordinary made using recycled materials.

Nine Personalised Map Hearts in a Black Frame

I've never been shy to admit I'm a bit fan of vintage maps and global maps used in fashion pieces.

This sweet gift is hand-made in Kent. Choose destinations that are most memorable for your Father, and send off your order for a unique personalised piece of wall art to be made. Nine map hearts spefic to your order are cut out of vintage maps and are mounted and framed.

Personalised UK Sailcloth Weekend Bag 

Made in Nether Wallop (love it!!), England, these practical weekend bags are handmade using recycled and new sailcloth with a canvas bottom.

Adding to the oceanic feel of these bags, nautical rope is used to provide extra support and each product is stitched using the traditional sail maker zigzag stitch.

Bags are made to order, and can be personalised with up to 3 letters and numbers on the reverse. Satchels are made with a white background, red base, navy straps, red side ends and the Union Jack Flag on the front.  Other flags are also available.

Personalised Hand Stamped Vintage Spoon

La de da in Gloucestershire in the UK source and collect vintage silver plated cutlery pieces. Big ol' spoons are then stamped with witty or personalised quotes that are special to your Dad.

Every letter is hand stamped, and therefore each piece will be completely unique because spacing and alignment will vary. Handles vary; choose ornate or plain

Watch Movement Cufflinks 

Nothing like a little steampunk inspired gift for your Pappa.  If Dad wears cufflinks, these beauties are unique little accessories to have for his wardrobe!

Each set of cufflinks is designed and made using the movement parts of old wrist watches. Order with a personalised chrome cufflink box and choose to have the wording of your choice engraved onto it.
