My Sherpa Picks for Father’s Day

Since Father’s Day is at the start of the summer, my top choices for this occasion are a stylish shirt with short sleeves and a soft summery t-shirt. Here you can see the Faneel Plaid Short Sleeve Shirt and the Retro Knot Tee from Sherpa.

The shirt is a stylish wardrobe staple that you can dress up or down. It is suitable for daily wear, occasion wear, adventuring, and travelling. The shirt is made from a soft blend of recycled cotton and recycled polyester which provides excellent comfort, breathability, temperature regulation, and moisture management – all of which are extra important for the summer season.

Details include forward set shoulder seams, a double pleated back yoke for ease of movement, faux wood buttons and a single chest pocket. The traditional plaid design is classic and offers a timeless style that can be enjoyed year after year. This is the Forest colour but it’s also available in a blue and red colourway. Sherpa has many more great-looking ethical organic cotton men’s shirts to choose from too.

The Retro Knot Tee is a soft 100% organic cotton t-shirt that combines elemental earth tones with vintage styling. It has a crew neck and short sleeves and is ideal for wearing with shorts in warm weather or for layering when it’s colder. The 70’s stripe design looks great and features the endless knot which represents unity. This conveys that we are tied together as one, both with each other and the world around us. The t-shirt also features Sherpa’s signature prayer flag tape at the back of the neckline which prevents stretching and adds a nice detail too. This wonderful t-shirt is also available in a blue colour and in an off-white colour.

Their 1000 Mile Men’s Walking Socks in a Twin Pack would be an excellent Father’s Day gift for a dad who loves to walk or hike. These socks are 3-season comfort socks with temperature control suitable to use with walking shoes or walking boots. The socks feature padded toes and heal panels, flat toe seams for comfort and to reduce friction (and the chance of blisters!), a loop stitched pile for volume and protection, ventilation zones on the top of the foot, and arch bracing for extra support and a custom, non-slip fit.

Peter Bowen has been making ceramics for over 35 years and has a wonderful range of handmade pieces on his website.

      Books About Adventure

      Books About Adventure

      Most people can’t be out on adventures every day. For days at home, treat your dad to some books about adventure to enjoy. He can find new ideas and inspiration for future adventures, discover new areas to explore, or new activities to try. Here are a few books that are on my own personal wish list and that I think outdoorsy dads would love to read too:

          Portable Power Bank

          Portable Power Bank

          Being able to charge your phone and other devices when you are out on an adventure is a must these days. A good quality power bank is a great gift for anyone who likes to be on the go.

          My personal favourite brand when it comes to power banks is Anker. I have only had good experiences with this brand so far and have a variety of their products. This Anker Power Bank has a 20,000mAh capacity which can keep your devices powered for days. It’s fast charging and can charge three devices at the same time – for example you phone, your earphones and your Apple Watch.

          Mayraki Professional CopperGro Pro Beard Growth Oil

          Mayraki Professional CopperGro Pro Beard Growth Oil

          This beard oil from Mayraki Professional would make a thoughtful gift for dads with beards. Treat him to the ultimate grooming experience with this expertly crafted beard oil. It contains natural and organic ingredients including sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, Argan oil, and powerful copper peptides. The premium blend promotes healthy beard growth while nourishing facial hair and moisturising the skin below. The formula is lightweight and non-greasy, leaving the beard soft, manageable and revitalized. Can be used on all beard types and is also suitable for sensitive skin.  

          Experience Gifts

            Experience Gifts

            Last but not least, for dads who have all the stuff and all the gear already, you can’t go wrong with experience gifts. Buy a gift card for an experience or a trip that you know he would love or opt for a voucher for an experience gift company where he can choose something himself.

            Collaboration.
