Unique Father’s Day gifts

Unique Father’s Day gifts

13th June 2019 Ollie For Pixie stories

Unique Father’s Day gifts from some Pixie independents in Bath that the father figure in your life will love.

We know it can be a struggle to find the perfect gift for your father figure – especially ‘the man who has everything!” With Father’s Day right around the corner, we thought it would be a good idea to put together a quick guide, crammed full of gift inspiration from our Pixie independents.  

Mr B’s

“I’m reading a book on antigravity, it’s impossible to put down!” 

If you just groaned a little at your screen we apologise, however, it’s almost Father’s day so we thought this classic dad joke would be a great way to introduce you to the wonderful book shop that is Mr B’s. 

This award-winning store is everything you could imagine, and more!  With a huge range of books, quirky rooms and even a station to make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee, combined with extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff, why would you go anywhere else? If you want to get your father figure a book that he might find “impossible to put down”, check out these two crime novels recommended by the staff. Both are new releases so there is only a slim chance he has already read them! 

Our next three independents  are the perfect suggestion for those with a passion for all things alcohol

Wolf wines

If your father figure is a wine guy, your first stop should be Wolf Wines. They stock some of the best small batch wines you can buy in Bath sourced from all over the world. The staff in the shop are super helpful and love what they do, always more than happy to lend some advice. We think the wooden gift box is a great touch too!

Independent spirits: 

For the whisky lover in your life Independent Spirits will be able to help you out. As you walk through the shop you enter what can only be described as a whisky lovers heaven. From floor to ceiling they have every type of British whisky you can think of. We recommend their Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky – a brand that is relatively local to Somerset, it is the first Whisky created in the Cotswolds! The barley used is sourced locally from farms in the Cotswolds – which is named on the label of the bottle, so you can pinpoint exactly where your delicious whisky has originated from.

Beer Craft

An easy choice for all things beer! Beer Craft has a huge number of different beers brewed from all over the world. From Australia to Ireland – they really have it all! Find their Bath store on Argyle Street, where they boast the biggest range of beers in Bath. We recommend creating your own gift set, where you can choose the beers to make sure you get the best personalised selection for your old man! Or, if you can’t decide buy a pre-packed version for just £10!

And finally, cheese. 

Nibbles Cheese

Most people may describe their father figures as “a little cheesy” so with this next recommendation, that may become a reality! Bath’s oldest cheesemonger have an excellent range of high quality cheeses, which are all very reasonably priced. You can buy cheeses that are sourced from some of the best farms all over the country, that perfectly pair with divine crackers or chutney. They also have a small collection of local beers, so you could create your own hamper. Quality AND quantity.
