Father’s Day Small Business Gift Guide



As you know Father’s Day is June 21st which is not too far away. I know each year its a special day where we thank our Dads for all the hard work they do and everything they have done for us, especially growing up and every day, If you still live at home like me. I am incredibly lucky my Dad has been supportive of my riding, driving many miles around the country over the years, to take me competing or to come and watch me.


If you are stuck for ideas this year and you wanted to support a small business, with your purchases here are some wonderful ideas for gifts, and for that special card too.


All Fathers’ days gifts should start off with a card and what better way than to purchase a gorgeous farmyard style drawn animal card which also raises money for St John Ambulance.



Zoe Olivia - Art Farmyard pack of 4 different animal cards. To purchase these all you need to do is donate to her just giving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/zoe-jameson2?fbclid=IwAR08ZCD0SbglZ9k2Yh0twMKrZPOi6PV9cpa3NYzPlUhM8mFjoM_9YA1fMQ8 Then send your address to her via private message.
