Father's Day is approaching.
Yep, its already almost that time of the year!
You know, that time when you pick your brains trying to think of a good gift for your dad (or step dad, granddad, father in law or any other father figure in your life). Why is it that Dad's are notoriously hard to buy for?
Unlike the female species (generalising I know!), men tend to say they don't want or need anything, which can make it hard to find a gift that they'll actually love and more importantly use.
To be honest though, there's no need to overthink it. Our 'Choosing a great gift' blog post might be worth a read.
But basically it should meet at least of these three criteria (which are relevant for gift giving in general)
PRACTICAL || SENTIMENTAL || RELATABLE.
Here are our top 10 favourite Father's Day Gifts from Black Owned UK Businesses.
Well our top 10 faves that we don't sell!
You can check out the BlackToMyRoots' 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide. With more than 50 Father's Day product suggestions from our various collections.
1. Adia Nature's Beard & Grooming Set
Top of our list has to be this luxurious Beard & Grooming Set from Adia Nature.
To be fair Dad will low key love everything from their natural skincare range, but if he's got a beard then this is the kit for him.
2. Attah Watches
We've had our eye on the ever expanding Attah Watch collection for a while now.
You'll be spoilt for choice with a range of designs featuring both AfroCentric and contemporary.
We've narrowed it down to this and about 3 more!
3. Las Olas Premium Spiced Rum
We've been hearing a lot about this new Black Owned Rum brand.
Get Dad a bottle if he appreciates a nice rum.
Plenty of other options if he doesn't over on the Las Olas website.
4. Uptown Yardie Kaya Two Tone Shoe
We love the aesthetic of the Uptown yardie posts on Insta and Facebook.
Dad will defintely step out in style if you get him a pay of these stylish two tone Kaya shoes.
5. Trini's Finest OG Hot Pepper Sauce
We can personally vouch for this hot sauce, having fell in love at first taste, when we visited the Black London Eats in Hackney last year.
If dad likes it hot, then this is the sauce for him. Maybe buy a few bottles and put them in a nice gift box for dad to enjoy.
7. Original Flava Natural Flava Vegan Cook Book
Encourage Dad to eat healthier with this signed Natual Flava's Cook Book (currently on sale at time of writing - only £22).
Dad a die hard carnivore? You can grab a signed copy of their Original Flava cook book instead, also on sale.
9. Afro Pop Socks Gift Box
Yep, we know socks are the cop out choice, but not these socks, these are statement socks and Dad will love them.
Grab a gift box, with 5 pairs of these vibrant socks for £50 over at AfroPop Socks.
