We asked the illustrator and artist Sean Webster to pick his top Father’s Day gifts from MerseyMade! Here’s what he had to say…
“I’ve picked these items out as I feel they are great for all dads, no matter what age they are!
From cushions to photography to food and drink items, you can’t really go wrong with the selection of fantastic independently made items that I picked out from the shop.
It’s even nicer as the money you will spend on these beautiful products goes straight back into the local community as all the MerseyMade makers are local creatives; I’m one myself!
I’ll definitely be giving my own dad a selection of these for Father’s Day, just don’t go telling him!”
Beers of Goodison Road, EFC Beer Mats
My dad is a huge football fan, we go to every home game together so these beer mats are perfect.
Pin Head, Scouse Saying Pin Badges
I know these will make him laugh!
Sketchbook Design, Everton Football Club Print
Michael Wylie (the designer at Sketchbook) had a stall next to me at my very first market which my dad did with me and absolutely loved his work!
Turncoat, Albert Dock Gin
Gin is my dad's absolute favourite drink. It went down so well at Christmas I'll have to get it again!
Clare Bates, Nil Satis Goodison Park
We've just done our house up over lockdown so this will be a lovely addition to the walls. He'll love that it's by a local photographer!
Spice Kitchen, Spice Tin
This is something my dad would never usually buy but I'll think he'll love cooking with it and experimenting with new recipes!
Forshore, Swim Bike Run Plaque
This is perfect for my dad to keep anything from keys to sport jackets or even his trainers!
MerseyMade, Coffee Lover Hamper
My dad has a coffee every morning so it'll be nice for him to try a new blend!
The Tuck Shop, Mega Mix
These are a really fun gift. I love their colourful packaging!
Woodcraft by Owen, Handcrafted Pen
My dad is starting a new job soon and what better present to give than a hand-crafted pen for him to use everyday!
