Looking to shop small and local this Father’s Day? Here are six fabulous small businesses, all based in Derbyshire, who have some wonderfully creative ideas for Father’s Day gifts. I’ve deliberately included several low cost items – perfect for pocket money purchases.
Flossie & Small
Founded in 2020, all of Flossie & Small’s products are designed and handmade by owner Rachel using a combination of wool, felt and cotton and features beautiful free-motion embroidery. These gorgeous Father’s Day badges are the perfect way to show our appreciation of our Dads – and can also be personalised. Shop here.
Much loved Derby menswear brand, Mr Shaw sells great quality, stylish clothes. The brand is synonymous with Sadler Gate in the Cathedral Quarter. The bold graphic designs embody old fashioned values in a modern, diverse world – and very much come from the heart of designer and founder, Karl Shaw. Shop here.
From The Farm At Pilsley
Nestled on two sprawling acres in rural Derbyshire, the From the Farm at Pilsley small holding boasts an orchard that yields a variety of soft fruit, all of which are used in their delicious jams and chutneys. The family-run operation is built on a foundation of traditional recipes, making every jar bursting with flavour. All the products are additive and preservative-free ingredients, for a truly natural taste. Shop here or look out for them at local farmers’ markets.
Orgill Originals consists of a self-taught father and daughter team creating beautiful hand stitched leather bags and accessories. Based in a small Derbyshire village, Orgill Originals sell a range of nature inspired gifts made from wood, copper and paper. Shop here.
White Peak Distillery
White Peak Distillery is Derbyshire’s first full-scale craft distillery, making award-winning whisky, gin and rum with a proud Derbyshire provenance. The distillery is based in ancient woodland on a World Heritage site. Whisky Tour vouchers are available as e-vouchers or postal, and would make a fascinating day out for Dad. For an exceptional tipple, Wire Works Caduro is a gold award winning Derbyshire single malt, priced at £60. Available at whitepeakdistillery.co.uk or from the Distillery shop in Ambergate.
A Pebble and a Paintbox
Founded by Carly, a busy mum of two, A Pebble and a Paintbox sell hand painted pebbles and have a range of Father’s Day designs – ranging from cute to cheekily funny. Shop here.
