Without a doubt, the greatest gift you can give to the Big Man in your life is your time and attention, but sometimes a small and thoughtful gift can go a long way too!
With this sentiment in mind, il-lokal prepared 5 Father's Day gifts ideas that do good by supporting small Maltese brands and don't fall short on cool either.
1. Eco-friendly Metal Razor
There's always a good time to advocate for a low-waste lifestyle, especially if our purchase will not only last for a very long time but is also aesthetically pleasing. Sometime last year, Rebels with a Cause introduced these vintage-inspired metal double edge safety razors and we think they make a perfect gift for anybody enjoying clean and smooth shave.
2. "Speak Maltese" T-shirt by Souvenirs that Don't Suck
If your Dad has a favorite Maltese filler word, look no further. The chances that the team behind Souvenirs that Don't Suck thought about combining it with a cool product are very high!
3. Local Craft Beer
There's no way to go wrong with this one. If you're planning to hang out with your dad on Sunday 21st June, make sure to bring with you a case of a delicious local craft beer. You can go with Huskie Craft Beer, Stretta Craft Beer, or even better, get a mix of both.
4. Custome Illustrated Portrait
It's not a secret, Dads love to shed a tear and without a doubt, a custom illustrated portrait by Noodles or Doodles will do the job! You can order a portrait of him, you or the whole family - the possibilities are endless, but make sure you have enough time at hand and are open to the artist's suggestions.
5. Handmade Leather Goods by Birgu Blue
Our final recommendation is an ode to traditional craftsmanship and timeless design. Quality leather accessories, like a wallet or custom watch strap, always make a classy and long-lasting gift. The goods delivered by Birgu Blue workshop are carefully handcrafted from the top quality leather and additionally, the studio offers a possibility to customize items with your Dad's initials.
