Five ways to pay homage to your dad this Father’s Day, we’ve got you covered.

Father's Day is September 2nd, and so as per usual we best find something to help make Dad feel darn special this year.
Whether he is outdoorsy, fancy, bit-of-a-bogan or wonderfully tech-savvy we have found a few things we know he'll love - and if he doesn’t like them we made sure you can steal them! Thanks Dad! 
Socks are almost an obligatory gift to give Dad on Fathers Day. He may have been waiting all year for a new pair! Our 100% cotton Nothing Socks feature art by our favourite British artist David Shrigley and are extra snazzy! Dad will love that you've gifted him art for his feet. 

About the Artist
David Shrigley is a British artist who has come to prominence through his drawings, publications, and sculptural works. His drawings have a kind of throwaway beauty peopled as they are with monster children, idiots, aliens, bad parents and full of twisted lists and exchanges. 
So this one is a bit more of a useful gimmick. We can imagine that cleaning isn’t something that is the top of any Dad’s to-do list. Either way, we have the perfect solution to help Dads mop the kitchen floor (and get in Mum's good books). He can slip them on and slide through the house cleaning as whistles. 
Perfect for cold toes ready to clean, these fit most adult feet.

It’s hard to go wrong with a gift that involves coffee. The conical Pour Over Coffee Maker works with standard V60 style filters and gives you complete control over making the perfect, clean cup of coffee. The double-wall glass allows for easy handling and superior heat retention. Makes 1-3 cups of coffee at a time. Why not gift it with a David Shrigley I've Done Everything Mug?

About the Designer

YIELD lives at the intersection of functionality and elegance, of high-end design and accessibility. Ranging from furniture to jewellery, YIELD's broad product line is designed by founders Rachel Gant and Andrew Deming.
Dad's love packing boxes, right? Maybe your Dad is a sender of things to family and friends or he might love to help you move house. BOX OF CRAP! Is a wonderful replacement for your average oh-so-boring cellar tape. We asked David to design this especially for all the boxes of crap we send, and now you too can send boxes of crap. Bound to make the receiver smile. 
It's time to take Dad to the museum & you're going to need ART SEE to make the most of it.  This interactive, discovery dice game was designed by us here in the studio to shake up your next visit to the museum. Instead of taking selfies, be present with the art and your fellow visitors; look around, see what is not obvious at first, move your body and create your own mini-adventure in your favourite museum. ART SEE takes the intimidation out of art appreciation and makes it accessible, fun, thought-provoking and different each time. Dad will love spending the day with you, following people dressed in blue and looking at art through his legs! 

About Hi Art!
Hi Art! takes the museum souvenir and reinterprets it as a fun and collectable educational tool for all ages that draws out modern & contemporary art history movements, artists, design and language. The ideas that shape and influence culture become bite-sized and digestible for the curious everyday art lover.

Look! Look!
We made a shop just for Dads so you can have a look at other things if these don't tickle your fancy.
