10 Unique Handmade Father’s Day Gifts

Lovely handmade Tunisian unique Chess set. The board and the pieces are olive wood. The pieces are individually hand carved and are sure to become the focal point wherever you put it. A handy feature are the two little drawers on opposite ends of the board for times when the game stretches on for days and you don’t want to lose your opponents pieces that you won. (Tunisia Handmade, $70)

Got an on-the-go dad? This is the newest minimalist design for everyday use: iPhone 5 case, card holder, ID case and wallet made of Italian cowhide. You carry the world in this case. It has 6 compartments: 1 for your ID card or any other certificate, 4 for the cards 1 for banknotes + 1 silicon cover for your iPhone 5, so you can use all functions of your best friend without taking it from the case. The case is pretty slim and the craftsperson didnít use any hardware that can be dangerous to the screen. (Farrago Bags, $60)

Got a fisherman in the family? This is a handmade and handstamped custom antique heart fishing lure. The item is pictured in bronze, but they sadly just sold out of that material. The shop is happy to offer it in either copper or brass with an antiqued and brushed finish. The fishing lure is made large enough to accommodate multiple lines of custom wording and is made of a high quality metal. This is available in limited quantities and for a limited time. Each lure is hand cut and antiqued, so no two will look exactly like, which adds to the one-of-a-kind quality. (C and T Custom Lures, $18)

These collar stays are brushed stainless steel and measure 2 1/2″ long and this listing comes with 2 personalized collar stays. You pick what it says! (Peyton’s Treasures, $20)

This manly stainless steel superhero keychain is personalized and hand stamped with the message, names or dates of your choice. Sample says, “My Dad, My Hero” with three dates around the perimeter. You can have names around the perimeter or dates and any saying you want on the inside “S” portion. A pewter split ring is attached at the top for your keys. (Stampin’ Off the Path, $20)

Looking for a unique gift for the cook in your life that already has a spice collection? These seven blends will knock them out! And the magnetic jars will be reusable for future spices. Hexagonal shape fits together creating a spice-colored honeycomb flower on your fridge. Strong neodymium magnets will keep jars from sliding. Caps are hand-embossed with spice names. Gold plastisol lids form an airtight lock, keeping spices fresh. Seasonings are hand-mixed by the shop, using all organic herb and spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. They won Oregon’s “Ethics in Business” award for 2010. (Gneiss Spice, $52)
