6 Local Father’s Day Gifts 2019

6 Local Father’s Day Gifts 2019


Let’s celebrate DAD! 


Father’s day is around the corner, thus I’ve made a list of 6 gifts from proudly South African brands and designers. The best part of this gift guide is that the gifts are totally affordable, but if you want to splurge a little, I’ve made room for that too. 

Here are the bespoke and Proudly South African gifts for your super cool dad:


1.    The ultimate leather wallet

Ikhayaelite’s leather wallets and leather card holders are proudly designed and made in South Africa. Their range of elegant leather goods will be a stylish companion for your dad’s ching-ching.

2.    Designer Beer Glasses

Designer beer glasses for dad?! Why not? You can get this bold set of locally designed beer glasses for dad from specially designed from the Cameron Collective. This is the new go-to online shop for expertly curated accessories and décor goods.  The glasses come in sets of four, with four bespoke designs of geometrical lines and shapes. These glasses even make your beer/ cocktail/ smoothies taste better (according to me!).

3.    Dad’s with beards

Your dad’s beard requires the best grooming care. The Bearded Man (TBM) offers a grooming combos with their finest oils, balms and soaps. This beard grooming starter kit is a great point of departure + packaging is very nice. Add this grooming comb for extra brownie points from dad.

4.    Socks, socks, socks

Men who wear trendy, funky and colourful socks have that little extra style in their steps. Let’s make your dad one of those guys with the 100% bamboo socks from Sexy Socks. I especially love their Volksies and Avo socks. PS. for every pair of socks that you buy, a child in need is given a pair of socks on your sexy-behalf.

This leather apron from the Dark Horse, a high-end design brand, will set your dad apart from all the other guys at the next braai. Dark Horse items have a natural inclination to disrupt the status quo- just like your super dad. These leather aprons are functional, stylish and top quality.

6.    Handcrafted Slippers

Walk the Talk Africa Slippers supply handcrafted slippers. Inspired by up-cycled materials used from cut-offs from upholsters or discontinued fabric books. This means that your dad’s slippers will be unique and one of a kind. It’s also fun to select the slippers as the range is continuously changing due to the nature of the up-cycling process.
