8 non-stereotypical Father’s Day gifts

Mental Health

We’re all individuals, with unique interests, passions, likes, and dislikes. And yet, when it comes to Father’s Day gifts, a lot of the offerings fall back on tired stereotypes.

Now, we’re not saying that tools aren’t handy, or that scented shaving products aren’t a treat – but for dads who like something a little different, we’ve gathered together eight gifts that are as unique as they are.

1. Personalised reusable drinks tumblers, SHO

As many of us are striving to be more environmentally friendly, reusable cups are all the rage – and the selection of drinks tumblers SHO are a stylish addition to anyone’s eco-efforts. The SHO Pacto tumblers come in a range of shades and can be personalised with a name or message. Great for preserving the heat of hot teas and coffees, as well as keeping cool summer drinks at the optimal temperature for sipping in the sun, the tumblers also come with a lifetime guarantee, and 10% of SHO profits are donated to charity.
