Meaningful Cornish Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

7th June 2023

Thanking Dad with Cornish Gifts – Father’s Day Sunday 18th June 2023

Father’s Day is just one week away and is the perfect opportunity to show the special Dad(s) in your life just how much they mean to you. Whether that’s your Dad, Grandad, husband, or a father figure who’s always been there for you, it feels good to send them a token of your affection.

If you’re struggling to find a think-outside-the-box gift, then we have you covered with our favourite Father’s Day gift ideas for 2023.  Whatever your budget and whatever Dad’s into, these Cornish gifts will absolutely make his day.

For the super stylish

Dapper Dads will appreciate a pair of elegant Fern Cufflinks by Cornish Jeweller and Designer, Sally Wilcox, who draws inspiration from flowers, plants, and nature.

Handmade in a round or rectangular form, these cufflinks are deeply inscribed with the delicate outlines of a fern leaf and each pair is entirely unique. Designed to have a slightly longer post with a smooth ball end – they slip with ease through even the tightest of buttonholes!

Brighten his day

Put a huge smile on Dad’s face with a sunny yellow Artisan Sunrise Art Frame by Jo Downs Handmade Glass. This uplifting piece of fused glass artwork is inspired by the Cornish landscape and depicts the morning sun reflecting on the waves. Sure to remind Dad of beautiful Cornish sunrises and days well spent on the beach, this joyful piece will bring a ray of sunshine into his home.

Hot and spicy

If he’s a culinary whizz in the kitchen or just loves a fiery kick to his food, you can’t go wrong with a Chilli Sauce Gift Pack by Cornish Chillis! This award-winning organic chilli producer grows over 40 varieties of chillis and makes a mouth-watering range of sauces (and chutneys.)

Pick any 3 bottles from the impressive range of sauces, such as Chilli Ketchup, Ginger & Chilli Sauce, Hot Chilli Sauce, BBQ Sauce, and Sweet Chilli Sauce, and give Dad a gift that will spice up his summer!

For his home bar

Is there anything better than a gin that has a story to tell? Well, the new Tall Ships Gin by Falmouth Black Rock Gin does just that as it was created to mark the Tall Ships Race that leaves the maker’s home port of Falmouth in August 2023. Celebrating the many countries across the world that these amazing craft visited, this gin evokes the passion of travel and exploration.

Crisp and clean with a background warmth, and citrus notes from peppercorns and grapefruit, this gin is delicious served with a premium Indian tonic and a fresh lime or grapefruit garnish. Pour Dad a glorious gin and tonic this Father’s Day.

The gift of grooming

Treat him to a pamper session with The Clearing – Charcoal Mask with Tea Tree, from palm oil-free skincare brand, Bloomtown. Specially formulated for oily complexions, this all-natural face mask contains kaolin clay, charcoal powder, antibacterial tea tree oil, and white willow bark extract – a natural pore exfoliant.

It’s recommended to apply the mask with Bloomtown’s Eco-Friendly Mask Applicator Brush which helps to effectively apply the product, while using less of it. Made from sustainable wood, this little brush makes a lovely extra present when gifted alongside the mask.

Buttery goodness

He’ll be chuffed to bits with a box of hand-baked Simply Cornish Chocolate & Clotted Cream Shortbread from Cornish biscuit maker, Furniss. This indulgent selection of shortbread biscuits has been made the Cornish way, for extra melt-in-the-mouth flavour, and will make his Father’s Day coffee break truly scrumptious!

A Cornish-style cuppa

Any Dad who loves Cornwall will be pleased as punch to drink out of the All Rite Me Ansum Mug from The Cornish Store. Generously sized for Dad’s favourite hot drinks (and plenty of room for biscuit dunking!) this fun mug features the well-known Cornish greeting, ‘All Rite Me Ansum’ which loosely translates as ‘Hello Handsome!’

In the Cornish colours of black and white, and packaged in a lovely presentation box – this mug makes a great Cornish gift for all fans of our fine county!

 Superior socks

We know that socks are a tired old favourite for Father’s Day, but we’ve found some that are out of this world and put socks firmly back on the gift list!

…Introducing the Alpaca Wool Socks by Atlantic Blankets! This Cornish blanket maker is known for its blankets and throws made from the finest fabrics, so it comes as no surprise that they also have a range of luxury socks made from soft and super cosy alpaca wool.

Made in England, and available in the beautiful, classic shades of cream, brown, and navy, these socks are both warm and breathable.

You might like to pop in a bar of Atlantic Blanket’s Cornish Chocolate too – and make your present to Dad even more amazing.
