Plus, find out below how you can win the entire bundle.

Whether your dad's a bit of an artistic, creative type, a or an entrepreneur constantly developing new concepts, this pen is the ultimate tool to capture his thoughts and ideas.
Hand-assembled in their UK studio, AJOTO pride themselves on the levels of quality and precision used in manufacturing their timeless pens.

Machined from a solid bar of lead-free brass, using state of the art manufacturing techniques, this pen is spun and polished by hand.
The brass is also antimicrobial and naturally eliminates and kills harmful bacteria, which makes it great for use in sterile environments. When left uncoated the brass will form a rich patina over time and will maintain it’s unique antimicrobial properties.
And just look at those slick, minimalist good looks. The design of AJOTO's pens, branding and even their aluminium and cork packaging is beautifully considered.

Rose tinted glasses? Well, they're now a thing. Usually, sunglasses protect your eyes by making the world look dull, but the custom lens from Tens filters sunlight into warm golden tones, creating a world of nostalgic warmth. That's right, you can now Instagram Filter your world. Apparently even Sir Richard Branson's a fan.
"The world looks incredible, I wouldn’t choose to wear anything else"- Sir Richard Branson

Barnes & Moore enjoy taking a traditional approach to their products, favouring artisanal craftsmanship to automated processes. This coin holder was created as a result of personal experience; that frustrating situation of coins wearing through pockets, resulting in repairs being required long before the pockets had actually worn out.
The Merchant coin purse is small and neat enough not to absorb all your pocket space, and provides a handy solution to store your daily loose change. Fastening with a vintage Talon zipper, and lined with English bridle leather, the details here make for the perfect marriage of quality, style and function. Each item is handmade from the finest materials at the brand's workshop in England.

Here at RUN&FELL, we like to do things properly. We source organic fabrics, and select them for their quality and "feel appeal". We cut and sew each garment here in Manchester, England. We collaborate with local businesses to apply the print designs using both traditional screen print methods and digital printing technology. Our aim is to avoid exploitation across our supply chain, so that our customers can be confident that their clothing has been made fairly and made well.
What better slogan for your pops than our "Hero" T-Shirt? It has been constructed from 100% organic cotton jersey, a natural fibre known for its skin-friendly, soothing qualities. Chemical-free, it's not going to have any adverse affects on your skin or your health. (Find out more about why we use Organic Cotton here.)
As with all our garments, the fabric has been meticulously cut and sewn by hand in Manchester, England. We believe that in selecting luxuriously soft, organic fabrics, our products have a noticeably high quality and comfortably soft feel. The print has then been applied directly to the finished garment, using water-based inks, here in Manchester.
