Shopping gift guide for the “Etsy Dad”

Father’s day is officially one month away and if you’re anything like me, Dad is the HARDEST person to buy for. He never wants anything and when I finally convince him that I want to get him something and won’t take nothing for an answer – he says either “Socks” or “Beer”.
It’s no fun at all, especially because I love giving presents and I know he won’t really want a hand-painted piece of art like some Dads would. So instead of that, I’ve put together a list of my Father’s Day suggestions to transform Difficult to buy for Dad into an #EtsyDad.

What is the “Etsy Dad”? In my mind, he’s cool, he’s forward thinking and likes to D.I.Y.

  1. Genderless Jumpsuit by Hu The Man
    What Etsy Dad wouldn’t wear this? It’s progressive, it’s friendly and it’s super stylish. Described by the maker’s themselves as “The comfiest and the sickest”.

2. Dog Tag Bottle Opener by Pet Haus
If he’s an Etsy Dad, he’s got a dog and he loves to sit in parks with his pals. He’s young and fun and this personalised dog tag says it all.

3. Letterpress Father’s Day Card by Pink Teapot Press
If he’s Etsy he’d appreciate the feel of letterpress and of course who wouldn’t appreciate being told they’re awesome?

4. Man Up Beard Oil by The Nakid Label
Though the Etsy Dad may look unkept, he’s actually really well kept! This beard oil one of the reason’s his face smells so good all the time. It’s packed with Omega 9, Omega 6, and a plethora of vitamins which will add illustrious shine to his bushy bristles all day long.

6. Personalised Hammer by Creating Monkeys
Etsy Dads love to DIY and we love that they DIY but this personalised hammer will make sure he has a part of you with him even while he’s making. It will remind him not to mess up and might also embarrass him in front of his mates.

7. Heirloom Seeds by Hay Seeds Aus
In my opinion, a true Etsy Dad loves cats, if he tells you he’s allergic, he’s lying. And to prove his love of kitty’s, planting his own Catnip seeds could show you how much he mean’s it.
