The annual celebration of all things fatherly takes place on Sunday 19 June. Every year the third Sunday in June is set aside for this honouring of male role models throughout life.
Unlike Mothering Sunday, which has its roots in religious holidays, Father’s Day is more of a modern innovation.
In the UK the tradition follows the American model for the festivity. The day started out being commemorated in the early 20th Century and grew in popularity until it eventually became a nationally recognised date.
The UK soon followed suite, and today the day is a popular time for remembering the significance of dads in society.
Other parts of Europe such as Italy and Austria specifically link Father’s Day to feast day of St Joseph which has a date of March 19th. This more religious date is of Roman Catholic origin and was used to celebrate the role of the father in a spiritual and everyday sense.
However the date is celebrated, there are some fantastic designer ideas for gifts here at Homecolours to investigate.
The above Cask Whisky Connoisseur Set from LSA is a show-stopping collection for the whisky lover. A fantastically memorable gift for father’s day, the mouth-blown glass designer set includes decanters, tumblers and an ash-wood tray.
All of the items are brilliantly finished and mouldered into perfect geometric shapes that offers a stylistically memorable addition to an interior. Ideal for relaxing with friends and guests, the set is sure to be a hit this Father’s Day.
Another great idea for Father’s Day is the delightfully made Ferm Living Verso Jug. Made from premium stoneware and featuring a captivation pattern in reactive dark glaze, the jug is sure to create a memorable impression wherever used. Capable of holding plants and flowers beautifully, the delicate jug offers a lovely look to an interior.
The ornamental beauty also provides a diverting appearance whether filled with plants or not. Great to position on tables and desks, the jug brings an elegant and poetic feel to interiors.
Father’s Day is a great time for celebrating relaxing and leisurely activities. Putting aside some time for a game of chess is made even more rewarding with a designer set such as the Printworks Classic Game, Chess.
