man cave of gift ideas

At #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM, there’s no such thing as men being hard to buy for.

Our special #mensgiftsday on Twitter to help #planahead for Fathers Day rounded up hundreds of original and thoughtful 'shopindie' gift ideas.

Here’s our very brief snapshot of the indie inspiration (clockwise from top left):

  • Does anything go together more than men and trains? These outstanding model train sets inside vintage suitcases are the speciality of first class Warwickshire giftspotters Suitcase Trains
  • Men and football also seem to get along 🙂 Prepare your football fan for the Euro 2021 football championships with these international team mascots from handmade arts and crafts store Ooak Gifts
  • Property is a big pull for some men and who wouldn’t like to own one of these hand crafted wooden hygge houses from CraftedPlanetUK - where profits go to ethical projects worldwide
  • It’s well-known that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so steamed puddings from the delicious range at Worcestershire's The Pudding Shop could be just the job
  • Gardening is made a much more attractive prospect with stunning outdoor decorations and installations like these from Norwich artist Stained Glass Garden Art
  • If he’s a man of letters, he’s sure to like these distinctive and easy-to-install letter catchers from Lincolnshire handmade virtuoso CreateEngland (who also did an outstanding job as guest #mensgiftsday co-host, it has to be said)
  • Games don’t come much more stylish and striking than these unique slate and pebble board games based on ancient and medieval gaming from the arts and crafts collection of Edinburgh's ElbriCrafts
  • It’s a vicious slur that men never consult maps – particularly when they are as intricately drawn up and informative as this nautical map from Durham cartographic artist Manuscript Maps
  • Centre – robot desk buddy or home ornament made from recycled vintage items by Manchester steampunk star JunkBotsRobots. He became #UKGiftHourPower seller No171 when he recorded three sales during #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM last Saturday
