The role that fathers and father figures play in the lives of their children and families is incredibly important and research has shown that fathers can have a significant impact on their children's development and well-being, both in childhood and throughout their lives.

Here are some ways in which fathers and father figures can have a positive impact on their children and families:

  1. Providing emotional support: Fathers who are emotionally supportive and involved in their children's lives can help their children develop positive self-esteem, emotional regulation skills, and social skills.

  4. Promoting academic success: Fathers who are involved in their children's education and academic activities can help their children succeed in school and develop a love for learning.

These father figures are considered important because they have inspired people across the globe with their vision, leadership, and moral courage. They have shaped the course of history and continue to be celebrated for their contributions to society.

However, to be an amazing father, you don’t need to achieve miracles, you simply have to be an active and present parent in your child’s life. For those of us lucky enough to have a loving father or father figure in our lives, Father’s day is an opportunity to celebrate them and show them just how much we love them.

There are several meaningful reasons to give your dad a gift this Father's Day. Here are some of them:

  1. Expressing gratitude: Father's Day is an opportunity to express your gratitude for everything your dad has done for you. A thoughtful gift can serve as a tangible token of appreciation for his love, support, and the sacrifices he has made throughout your life.
  2. Celebrating his role: Father's Day is a special occasion dedicated to celebrating fathers and their significant role in our lives. By giving your dad a gift, you acknowledge and honour his importance as a father figure and the positive impact he has had on your life.
  3. Strengthening the bond: A meaningful gift can help strengthen the bond between you and your dad. It shows that you value and care about him, deepening the emotional connection between you both. It's an opportunity to share a heartfelt moment and create lasting memories.
  4. Showing love and affection: A gift is a beautiful way to express your love and affection for your dad. It allows you to convey your emotions in a tangible and heartfelt manner, reminding him of the special place he holds in your heart.
  5. Acknowledging his interests and hobbies: A thoughtful gift can be tailored to your dad's interests, hobbies, or passions. By choosing a gift that aligns with his personal preferences, you demonstrate that you pay attention to his likes and that you want him to enjoy something that brings him joy.
  6. Encouraging self-care and relaxation: Dads often devote a significant amount of time and energy to their families and work. Giving your dad a gift that promotes self-care and relaxation, such as a spa day, a massage, or a hobby-related item, shows that you value his well-being and want him to take time for himself.
  7. Creating moments of joy: A gift can bring moments of joy and happiness to your dad's life. Whether it's something practical, sentimental, or a surprise that brings a smile to his face, the act of gift-giving can contribute to his overall happiness and well-being.

Remember, the value of a gift lies not in its price or extravagance but in the thought and sentiment behind it. The most important thing is to choose a gift that is meaningful and reflective of your relationship with your dad. It's the gesture itself that will make Father's Day special and memorable for both of you.


Here are a few gift ideas from Wild & Rust that may help you when looking for the perfect gift this Father’s Day.

For us Father’s Day 2023 is all about wellbeing and we just love the Rugged Nature range of 100% natural products designed to leave Dad’s skin soft moisturised and looking youthful! We highly recommend the Natural Traditional Moisturiser. This perfect all in one moisturiser for the body, hands and face comes in a quirky paint pot. This all natural product is filled to the brim with nourishing ingredients and essential oils that work to hydrate and rejuvenate your skin leaving it feeling smooth and refreshed. On top of that the light scent of Eucalyptus and Rosemary lasts from morning till night.

For the Dad’s who enjoy a good quality 100% natural shave, there is the budget friendly but super nourishing 100% Natural Shave Soap. Shaving should be simple, smooth and satisfying, which is why our shaving soap is hand crafted to create the perfect rich, thick lather, that softens up those hairs, exfoliates your skin and allows the razor to elegantly glide as it slices through stubble. And what could be better than a smooth shave you ask? A guilt free shave! This all-round brilliant shave soap packaging is also 100% plastic free, so you can shop and treat Dad guiltfree!

To make it that little extra special, you can include a Bamboo Handled Shaving brush . This brush is cruelty free and contains no animal hair. However, to achieve this our friends at Rugged Nature had to use synthetic nylon bristles which will give you many wonderful years of use in order to help prevent the inhumane hunting and bullying of badgers. We hope you will agree. 

For those looking for something a little different for Dad this year, one of our best sellers last year was our stunning Seaweed & Samphire Candle. Zesty citrus and cooling spearmint notes mingle with a distinctive sea breeze scent anchored on a base of amber, moss and woods. A fresh and invigorating fragrance which makes a perfect candle for the office, study or  Dad’s favourite reading nook, whenever he takes time to relax.

On that inspiring note, for those who are lucky enough to be able to celebrate, we wish all our followers, friends and fans a wonderful Father’s Day weekend, no matter how and where you may be celebrating.

Happy Father’s Day 2023!
