If your dad is a home buddy, a gardener, or the master of your kitchen, then the following could be excellent gift options. Here are some of our crowd’s top five faves for Father’s Day gifts:
1. Animal Planters
If your dad or the father figure in your life is into gardening, make his plant passion more interesting with animal planters.

2. Crafty Coasters
Is your father one for entertaining guests? Could he be the type who enjoys a nightcap? Make sure he places his drinks on stylish yet sustainable coasters. These coasters are fantastic as eye candy but also perfectly practical in protecting surfaces from water rings and wine stains.
For a more formal look, you can go with coasters made from shells like capiz or mother-of-pearl. If you want a more natural vibe, choose ones made from natural fibers like abaca or raffia.
3. Modern Baskets
If you think your dad can use additional storage, why not gift him modern baskets? Choose from a wide selection of handwoven baskets that can serve as catchalls, planters, or storage solutions. Whether on table tops as a container for his keys or knickknacks or as floor baskets that organizes his belongings, these modern receptacles are practical and pretty.
These sustainable and stylish planters are made from Manila hemp, dried seagrass, rattan, or other natural fibers.
4. Raffia Tableware
Raffia is the fashion world’s new favorite (natural) fiber. This spring/summer season, designers are using it in accessories, bags, and footwear.
What may be a novel material in the catwalk, raffia is already a staple in the home and kitchen department. If your father has a penchant for preparing feasts, then raffia tableware is a fantastic gift. These handmade creations will undoubtedly lend a classic natural look to any table, whether it's raffia napkin holders, coasters, or raffia placemats.

You can go for a wooden chopping board if he’s the type to tinker in the kitchen or give him wooden bowls or dishes for his snacks. From wooden plates to serving platters, there’s a charming collection you can choose from. Made from sturdy acacia wood, you can be sure these gifts will last long.
