Listen up, everybody who wants to celebrate their dad: Father’s Day is coming soon, really soon. You probably already have a gift picked out, though, yes? Probably even have it wrapped, all set up with a heartfelt, handwritten card, probably.
What’s that? You completely forgot that Father’s Day was June 19? It’s OK, don’t worry. We know your dad loves ice cream, and we know exactly where to find uniquely awesome gifts that he will love.
Artisanal for the People
Etsy was founded in a New York apartment just over a decade ago. And now, even though they have 1.6 million active sellers, Etsy still holds to its crafty, artisanal roots and community-driven mission. Even better, they’re a B Corp like us! They want to make the world “more fair, more connected, and more fun.” We love the sound of that.
Be warned, though: there are more than 35 million uniquely interesting items for sale on their site. To make it easier on you, we put together a list of 8 beautifully ice-cream-happy gifts for the best dad in the world (yours).
Item number 1
Hand-Stamped Vintage Spoon
If you give this personalised spoon as gift to your dad, just be prepared to hear him ask, “Who took my spoon?” every day for the rest of your life. Because everyone’s going to want to use it.
Item number 2
Vintage Metal Sign
When he hangs this vintage sign in the kitchen, Dad can show everyone that he was a fan of ice cream back before it was cool. (See what we did there?)
Item number 3
Ice Cream Sandwich Phone Case
Is there a dad anywhere who wouldn’t want to pretend to make a call on an ice cream sandwich? All the time? Until everyone but him got sick of the joke?
Item number 4
Ice Cream Cone Cufflinks
Wearing these cufflinks will be the least-embarrassing way Dad has ever shown up at a fancy business meeting with ice cream on his shirt.
Item number 5
This is one of those gifts whose shear awesomeness defies description. If the question is, “Two-headed ice cream cone unicorn on a bowtie?” Then the answer is—on Father’s Day and every other day—YES!
Item number 6
Embroidered Baseball Cap
Sometimes Dad just wants to kick back and toss the ball around with his favorite kids. This hat keeps the sun out of his eyes and the ice cream on his brain.
Item number 7
Personalised Ice Cream Bowl
Let’s see, he’s got the scoop, he’s got the spoon. All he needs is a personalised bowl. This is your day, Dad. Enjoy it!
Item number 8
Father’s Day Card
If you get Dad anything from this list, he’ll be psyched. But, whatever you do, don’t forget a card!
But let’s face it, what Dad really wants for Father's Day is to spend some time with you. So why not take him out to your local Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop and buy him a round of whatever he’s having. That’s the kind of thing that this day is really all about.
