Top 10 Gifts this Father’s Day
No.1 eteaket: Concept Store, 111 Rose Street and Tea Room, 41 Fredrick Street
Barrel aged in a Tomatin Whisky barrel, this tea is one of a kind much like your dad! We’ve blended three black teas from Assam, Ceylon and Fujian and added a little natural bergamot flavour and a sprinkle of cornflowers. Then the magic bit. We’ve worked with the Tomatin Distillery in the heart of the Scottish Highlands to suspend our blend in their whisky barrels. By letting the tea leaves age in this way, the leaves naturally pick up the complex smoky, fruity flavours of the whisky barrel without overwhelming the character of the tea leaves themselves. The only type of Whisky (tea) that is suitable for drinking with breakfast!
No.2 Life Story Edinburgh: 53 London Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6LX
Does Dad’s office need a spruce up? This industrial concrete pen and pencil holder is perfect and very durable. Available online and in store at Life Story Edinburgh along with plenty of other wonderful Scandinavian products.
No.3 Diedododa: 67 Rose Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2NH
We love new shops opening in Edinburgh but it is even better when they are so close to us! Go hunting for prints for Fathers Day in Dodos new store. She is joined by Edinburgh Bow Tie Co and Etch’d, which makes it a mecca for potential Father’s Day presents. It was hard to pick but one of our favourites is this print of Victoria Street.
No.4 Craig & Rose: 13 Deanhaugh Street, Edinburgh, EH4 1LU
Is Dad a DIY fan? Craig & Rose have opened a fresh new store in Stockbridge. Established in 1829 by two young Scottish entrepreneurs, James Craig and Hugh Rose, they are dedicated to quality and to Scotland. They have paint specialists as well as interior designers in their store which is heaven for any paint/DIY lover. One shade that is proving popular is the vintage shade Payne’s Grey.
No.5 The Trumpet Shop
If Dad is a classic gentlemen with a love for history, he will love what the trumpet shop has to offer. They #dontselltrumpets but they do sell a vintage collection of gifts including vintage prints of Edinburgh (how great is the one below). You can buy their prints online so get your orders in quick for Father’s Day.
No.6 Fly London – 107 – 109 Rose Street, Edinburgh
Another great shop to open nice and close to our Concept Store has been Fly London. Although the woman’s shoes are fabulous (I speak from experience) they also have plenty for Dad. The designers at Fly make shoes depending on where their inspiration takes them which means you will be getting a shoe that is original and long lasting. We love this brown number for evening wear.
No.7 Tiso– 125 Rose Street Edinburgh
Floors of adventure gear waiting to be used! It was hard to pick just one product but this Icebreaker Merino middle layer is perfect for Edinburgh’s ever changing weather. Icebreaker is a quality New Zealand brand who uses Merino wool in their products. Merino is great because it helps you cool down when you are hot and stay warm when you are chilly. There is no doubt you will be Dad’s favourite child if you gift this to him on Sunday!
No.8 Route One – 115 – 117 Rose Street, Edinburgh
Get Dad everything he needs to feel his best. This wash kit from Route One is perfect for a Dad who travels. Stylish but also practical what more could he ask for?
No.9 Tomatin Whisky Distillery –Inverness IVI3 7YT
If you are looking for a Father’s Day present with a difference look no further. Tomatin make premium Scottish Whisky and offer tours of their distillery. For a limited time only and just in time for Fathers Day they are holding BYOD (bring your own dad) tours and whisky tastings. They are located just outside of Inverness so why not make a trip of it. What’s more precious than making memories (and drinking Whisky).
No.10 eteaket: Scottish Gin & Whisky Tea Cocktail Set
There can never be too much tea so we thought why not put it on the list twice. Our Whisky and Gin cocktail set is perfect if your Dad enjoys the best of both worlds. The set includes cocktail recipes and both of the teas. If you want to go one step further start the prep the night before and make them for Dad on Sunday! You can order the set on our website or purchase it in our Concept Store on Rose Street.
