New ideas for Father’s Day


Like so many celebrations this year, Father’s Day might have to be celebrated slightly differently but hey, we are getting used to that.

Even with the re-opening of shops pending, an online gift is looking likely for most and never has there been more need to support our independents. So, it is well worth looking at the list of local shops to remind ourselves what’s on offer locally. Check out for a complete list of Newmarket shops.

If you are fancying something different to spend your money on this year, then we have two fantastic independent companies to introduce you to.  They provide amazing present ideas just made for the outdoor type or the father who simply has everything.

First up is Chester and Cooke, a husband and wife team (plus dog), based just over the border in Cambridgeshire. We simply love promoting their unique, hand crafted products which provide practical solutions for keeping your keys in one place, taking the back strain out of removing your boots as well as keeping those all important man’s caves tidy. Their stylishly designed racks, pegs and boot jacks, along with many others gift ideas, are simply perfect for walkers, gardeners, animal lovers, polo players or simply those who need order in their lives. Check out their website  and with prices starting from as little as £3.50 there is something to suit all budgets.

Our second business is unusual to say the least. Melvill and Moon manufacture and market a broad range of high-end safari luggage, campaign furniture and handmade canvas and leather accessories. However, you don’t have to go on safari to find use for their products. Their best sellers range from a rucksack, field bar and apron – all useful accessories for day’s out and al fresco picnics or BBQs. The sheer quality and craftmanship shines through on their Instagram pages. Whilst prices tend to be at the higher end, these are gifts to last a lifetime and something that you are unlikely to ever receive two of

If these don’t tickle your fancy, then how about a Discover Newmarket Tours Gift Voucher? Our tours are re-opening very soon and all vouchers have a 12 month life. With tours starting from as little as £15 this could be the perfect way to show how much you care by giving a memorable experience. Browse our website for inspiration

And if all else fails, then you can’t beat a bottle of something special from Corney and Barrow, one of the oldest independent wine merchants in the UK.

So have a browse online now and buy dad something special this year.

Happy lockdown Father’s Day.
