Father’s Day Inspiration

Fathers Day is approaching and the annual worry of what to buy as the perfect gift is upon us….

We have a few suggestions at Bayley & Sage:

Make him a hamper – filled with delicious goodies to eat right now or store for later.  Made with love and full of the things he loves – whether that is wine, cheese, artisan bread, olives, tea, coffee, biscuits, strawberries, champagne,  charcuterie, smoked salmon, chocolate, cakes – or all of them!  We have wicker baskets to fill in store which we can wrap beautifully to make a beautiful and delicious gift.  For example:

For the Truffle loving Dad: Make a selection of all things truffle!  We don’t mean the chocolates!  We have truffle honey – delicious drizzled over cheese (we like it over a pungent French blue or a salty pecorino), truffle salt – beautiful sprinkled over eggs, fresh pasta with asparagus or scallops, truffle brie – a divine layer of truffles between unctuous brie, truffle burrata and last but not least – truffle oil – to drizzle over anything – meat, pasta, risotto, exceptional on a Sunday Roast.  Delicious!

The Italian Job: Fill your hamper with Italian treats – fabulous olive oil, artisan pasta, a lovely chunk of Parmesan cheese, olives, grissini bread sticks, Gorgonzola, Italian biscuits, fine wine – Gavi, Barolo, Chianti, more cheese… get the drift! Bellissimo!

Spice Blends – for the chef/bbq expert!  Our new range of spices, from Zest & Zing will get his taste buds tingling and add the most divine flavour to your cooking.  Perfect for bbqs, in tagines or sprinkled over salads these small jars of spice simply add a depth of aromatic flavour that takes your food to another level.  The cute, perfectly sized, refillable Italian jars will ensure the blends are enjoyed at the peak of their freshness, exploding with full intensity of aroma and flavour.  We can make up a selection for you and wrap in cellophane and ribbon to make a special gift.  Choose from: White Truffle Sea Salt, Garlic & Parsley Sea Salt, Pesto Blend, Ras el Hanout, Aleppo Pepper, Shawarma, Peri Peri or Chimichurri.

Cheese board: Start with our own Bayley & Sage Cheeseboard, handmade from Scottish Elm by the caring hands of Peter Hall & Son, in the heart of the English Lake District. Each board chosen for its’ unique and interesting natural appearance and character.  The boards should be fed with natural vegetable oil and, over time, will build up their own unique patination and rich colour.  Just add in his favourite cheese selection and voila! – your perfect present!


Wine Hamper – when all else fails you can’t fail with a hamper full of wine.  Choose a fabulous selection – reds, whites, fine wines, Champagne and we have some amazing English fizz (Wiston Estate) – if you can’t decide we can help you select some favourites and have them wrapped beautifully to take away and present to the main man. Cheers!

Have a very Happy Fathers Day!
