Jangbu Short Sleeve Shirt from Sherpa

Sherpa Adventure Gear provide clothing with a purpose and recently hit an impressive target of providing 1 million school days for the children of Nepal. Together with Room To Read’s Nepal Education Programme, their goal is now to provide 10 million school days by 2030.

Sherpa recently launched their capsule collection to honour the scared Sarus Crane and help support the Lumbini Crane Foundation in Nepal.

The Sarus Crane is known as is the eternal symbol of unconditional love, devotion and good fortune. It is the tallest flying bird in the world and nests in the wetlands of Lumini, the birthplace of Buddha. However, rapid urbanisation, pesticides and reduced water flow have resulted in the beautiful bird facing increasing challenges to live and thrive. The Lumbini foundation works to restore and recreate the Crane’s natural habitat and involve the local community in the conservation of natural resources. 

Jangbu Short Sleeve Shirt from Sherpa

With the launch of this capsule collection, Sherpa are donating to the Lumbini Crane Foundation with every purchase (of any item) from the Capsule Crane Collection.

The Jangbu Short Sleeve Shirt is a travel shirt that is the perfect combination of versatility, comfort and style. With a slim fit, the shirt comprises a fabric blend of recycled polyester and recycled organic cotton, providing a soft feel, while also helping to regulate temperature and moisture control. Forward set shoulder seams provide ease of movement, and a single chest pocket and faux wood buttons contribute to a relaxed, rustic look. In terms of style & design, the shirt features a striking leaf and crane print design that makes it very eye-catching.

The shirt is ideal for summer travel and everyday wear and is available in sizes S-XXL and in three colours - Arctic Blue, Caramel and Sage. You can order the shirt from


For the liquorice-loving dad, luxurious treats from LAKRIDS BY BÜLOW would be the perfect gift.

LAKRIDS BY BÜLOW is a Danish confectionery company that was founded by Johan Bülow in Bornholm (in 2007) to create the ultimate gourmet liquorice experience.

The SLOW CRAFTED collection offers a depth of subtle textures and flavors that will melt in the tongue making it a classy and delectable gift. The gourmet collection is made by gently boiling over an open pot for four hours, followed by hand crafting to give the liquorice a texture like caramel. 


There are currently 3 flavours in the collection:

  • Caramel Date 
  • Mango Vanilla 
  • Dark Truffle

We tried Mango Vanilla and Dark Truffle and loved both. Mango Vanilla is made from fresh and fruity Alphonso mango and sweet Bourbon vanilla. Combining these with creamy white chocolate and a SLOW CRAFTED liquorice core, the end result is a indulgent fruity experience. This flavour is perfect for those who enjoy sweet & fruity treats.

Dark Truffle on the other hand is a layered delight.  A delightful organic chocolate treat with a distinguished surprise at its core. The chewy SLOW CRAFTED liquorice core is covered in a smooth layer of creamy milk chocolate followed by a thin layer of dark chocolate with fruity notes and  dusted with fine cocoa. It is absolutely delicious and irresistible.

The SLOW CRAFTED collection is presented in premium recycled glass packaging designed for reuse. After enjoying the liquorice inside, you can reuse the jar for all kinds of purposes or fill it up with your favourite SLOW CRAFTED flavour (available in refill bags).

Wasabi Vodka from The Wasabi Company

The Wasabi Company and English Spirit Distillery recently collaborated to create The Spirit of Japan range featuring Sansho Spiced Rum, Shiso Gin, Wasabi Vodka and Yuzucello. The range aims to showcase the art of distillation, blending captivating flavours rarely found outside Japan, in spirits that are smooth and sumptuous. All these four Japanese inspired spirits can be enjoyed neat, with a mixer or in a variety of cocktails, each revealing their vibrant flavours in a different way.

We have included the Wasabi Vodka in our guide.

Wasabi Vodka from The Wasabi Company

Although Wasabi Vodka from The Wasabi Company has been available for a number of years, this new, improved version made in collaboration with English Spirit is totally different, with a far more intense flavour from the wasabi!

When I think of Wasabi what comes to my mind is a hot, fiery, spicy and pungent ingredient that adds a unique taste in whatever dish it is used. And in this vodka, wasabi is literally the only ingredient used to flavour this premium vodka!  

In addition to the obvious heat imbued by the wasabi, there are delicate notes of earthy brassica with a hint of cumin and orris. Overall, it is buttery at the start, followed by heat, then earthy notes to close, and a mild bitterness on the finish. There is also a blend of sweet mustard and radish, ascending to high notes of star anise and pepper, and a complex lingering warmth to be savoured and enjoyed. 

The single-distilled vodka is remarkably smooth, and the only heat or fieriness comes from the wasabi, not the spirit, as should be the case in good quality vodka. A great gift for the vodka connoisseur.

John Deere 8R 410 (Prestige Collection)

Does your dad collect die-cast scale tractor collectible models? If yes, then the John Deere 8R 410 (Prestige Collection) model available from leading toy brand, TOMY would be a great gift.

John Deere 8R 410 (Prestige Collection)

Manchester Drinks Company Gin Liqueur

For the dad who enjoys a refreshing gin liqueur, Manchester Drinks Company have a great selection of gin liqueurs to choose from. Infused with different botanicals, fruits, or other ingredients, gin liqueurs are similar to traditional gin, but are usually sweeter and more fruit-forward in taste. They can be enjoyed neat, over ice, or as a base for cocktails.

Manchester Drinks Company Gin Liqueur

Manchester Drinks Company currently have three delicious flavours of gin liqueurs: Parma Violet, Mystical Unicorn (infused with candy floss and marshmallows) and Rhubarb & Ginger. We have tried the Parma Violet; it is a lovely floral gin liqueur taking inspiration from the flavours of Parma Violet sweets (a nostalgic combination of lavender and violets). Lovely tasting gin that goes well with lemonade.

Priced at only £7.99 for a 500ml bottle, these gin liqueurs are perfect for every occasion and capture the flavours of spring and summer nights. You can purchase them from Home Bargains and Quality Save.

Featured in this guide are the Spicy Vegetable Chutney (190g, £4.80) and the Plum & Apple Chutney (190g, £4.80).

Chutneys from Ginger & Juice

The Spicy Vegetable Chutney is a blend of late summer vegetables likes tomatoes, peppers, onions, courgette and aubergine seasoned with chilli, root ginger, garlic, paprika, mustard seeds, salt and black pepper and left to mellow for a month. And the end result is a warming jar of flavourful chutney. It pairs very well with soft goats cheese.

The Plum & Apple Chutney is made with autumnal stone fruits and apples and transformed by ginger, cinnamon, allspice and clove to create a warming winter chutney. Delicious, this chutney is versatile and can be used with sandwiches, served over a block of cheese or spread on bread in grilled cheese sandwiches. So many ways to enjoy it!

Urban Scarecrows – Jim Chambers

If your dad enjoys reading political thrillers, then Urban Scarecrows by Jim Chambers would make a fab gift.

Based on UK politics, Urban Scarecrows is a fascinating and gripping read that captures human emotions and frailties superbly.

Urban Scarecrows – Jim Chambers

The Labour Party election victory of 2019 ushers into power a radical socialist government which swiftly mutates to a British form of totalitarian Marxism in its quest for social justice and equality. Dominic Green, a Labour Party activist and celebrity chef, is caught up in the economic and social crisis as the country lurches towards civil war.

Taunted by the jibes of his volatile Spanish wife, Rosa, he moves from denial to acceptance to opposition and becomes a totemic media figure in the struggles. His marriage is in terminal decline; Rosa cannot forgive his philandering or his support of the government. His family falls apart as Rosa leaves him and one son is incarcerated, whilst the other attempts to liberate his sibling. Labelled a turncoat terrorist he is hunted by the brutal SNPS state police whose attempts to subjugate the population includes 'urban scarecrowing'.

Who can Dominic trust as he goes on the run whilst assisting the resistance movement? Will Rosa forgive him as she tracks his public pronouncements and his efforts to free their son? Will Dominic escape the clutches of the SNPS as the net closes?  And can Dominic survive and recover his relationship with Rosa and their surviving son?

The book is a fantastic read. It is written well, the characters are etched out well and depict a gamut of human emotions and Jim Chambers manages to keep you engaged in the story from the beginning to the end.

Readers of political thrillers and dystopian fiction will enjoy it. You can order it from Amazon.
