Father's Day Gift Guide 2017

Father's Day is fast approaching and if your Dad is anything like mine he's hard to buy for. Sure chocolates, liquorice or socks are always appreciated but they are a bit predictable and don't really show Dad how much he means to you.

If you are looking for something special this Father's Day (Sunday 3 September) why not consider...

Anchor Nautical Round


The Bach Book Nautical Rounds: Consisting of six different designs (anchor, dinghy, lighthouse, kina, snapper and gannet) and just $30 each, these little piece of wall art make a great gift. They look great on their own or as a combo. If you are a mum buying on behalf of the kids perhaps they can "buy" Dad one each and write a short message on the back. 

 

 

 

Autumn Falcon/Kareara

 

If your Dad isn't a keen fisherman but loves nature how about a print featuring one of our New Zealand natives? Autumn Falcon / Karearea is a gorgeous limited edition print by Rachel Walker

 

 

 

  

Dawn by Ben Timmin's

Ben Timmins' range of photorealistic images with wood grains have a masculine appeal and could make the perfect Father's Day gift. Dawn (pictured) comes in a unique circlet design ready to hang. We also have a range of cards in store featuring Ben's images as an alternative to the more commercial Father's Day cards.

 

 

 

 

Destination Planes

If Dad is a traveller or an adventurer Michele Bryant's Destination Planes could be a hit. The great thing about these is you can add to his collection each Christmas or birthday as Michele covers most countries and main centres; we can even arrange custom names or places. They look great tied around the bottle of Dad's favourite drink too. 

 

 

Stormtrooper

 

Joe McMenamin's Yoda and Stormtrooper prints could be a hit if your Dad is a Star Wars fan. They are designed to fit an A3 frame so are perfect if you would like to give Dad something ready to hang but are running short of time.
