We’re about half way into June and you know what that means…Father’s Day is very close. By you clicking the link to read this, we know for sure we have something in common. We’d love to celebrate our dads but we’re currently stuck on what to get or do for them.
Don’t worry we’ve got you. We have an awesome bunch of gift ideas, this time with some help from dads. We asked a few what they wanted, just to get a feel and peek into their minds. It turns out, they’re quite easy to please. We found one thing in common…most gifts mentioned were practical (something they could use) and others were related to activities that meant spending time with the family
There were some that made us chuckle though. One wanted a motorbike, and another, a family car…
Given all the dads’ feedback and the amazing deals and packages from our local businesses, here’s a roundup of gift ideas for dad.
Dads all over have admitted that Father’s Day is their favourite day. One of the things they love to do is spend time with family. Here are some ways you can spend some time with dad while having fun.

As mentioned before, dads seem to really love gifts they will actually use. We found a few incredible options, listed below
Winter Gear For Father’s Day
We tried our best to keep away from socks but the dads asked for it. It only makes sense, June is pretty cold here in Botswana. Most dads mentioned socks, beanies, scarves and hoodies. These can be found from most clothing store across Botswana.
THANDANA from Rosewind Trading
Celebrate Father’s Day this year with genuine leather gifts that will last a life time from Rosewind Trading. You simply can’t go wrong with these. They have everything ranging from wallets to vanity bags and backpack. These gifts aren’t only practical but are quite aesthetically pleasing.

Pure Linen Home Decor
Pure Linen allows you to turn your kids artwork into something unique. They print artwork on linen and it can be anything from scatter cushions & bed spreads to table linen and more. Dad is bound to love this sweet and sentimental gift.
It takes up to 4-6 weeks for the gift to be made and delivered but we feel this one is simply worth the wait.
Contact Bernice on +267 71 325 469 for more information.
Cathari Candles Co
Cathari Candles Co have 15% off their Oak Noir Scented Candles. This would make the perfect gift for the dads that love great smelling spaces. We love the Oak Noir for dads because it’s a great scent which isn’t highly feminine.
