For the Dad Who's Always in the Garden:

Calling all garden-loving dads! Meet the ideal summer gardening companion, the Billie Clog, designed for endless gardening adventures. Designed with comfort, durability, and a dash of joyful style, this clog is a game-changer that will make his time in the garden even more delightful.

The Billie Clog is a tough cookie too. Made from top-notch materials (durable natural rubber and neoprene!), it can handle mud, water, and rough terrain - and still come up clean after a wash! From the backdoor to the back of the garden, your dad will be slipping in and out of his clogs this summer! Available in four merry colours: Alpine Green, Black, Chilli Red and Sky Blue!

For the Dad Who Loves the Outdoors:

As we embrace summer, it’s time to start venturing out into the great big world again! After long months of cooler temperatures, your dad is ready to soak up some sun and start exploring. Merry People wellies are the perfect companion! Not just for the rainy days, your dad can slip on his pair of Merry People wellies for hiking, walking and hitting the trails.

Not sure what colour to get him for his outdoor adventures? We’ve picked some of our favourites - a mix of neutral and vibrant shades, so there’s sure to be one he loves!


  • Black: The Black & Black Bobbi Wellington is an easy choice if you want to get him a functional gift that also looks sleek (and is comfortable!). 
  • Oxford Blue & Tan: A classic colourway that features navy rubber and tan neoprene, this is a go-to neutral for everyday looks (jeans, shorts, gardening gear, whatever he loves to wear!).
  • Chocolate & Black: While dad may already have a trusty pair of brown shoes in his wardrobe, these are going to step it up a notch. Like all our Bobbi Boots, these are 100% waterproof, so he can wear them anywhere, any weather.
  • Rust: The colour we’ve dubbed as the ‘new neutral’, the Rust Bobbi Boot is a stylish and cool alternative to the classic Wellington.
  • Slate Grey: Its stormy colourway has grabbed the hearts of many of our Merry Community! From blue denim to a dressier pair of pants, Slate Grey goes with anything (truly - anything!).


  • Mustard & Black: No doubt you had a pair of yellow wellies growing up! These are a nostalgic nod to the wellies of our youth - and now dad can join in the fun!
  • Alpine Green & Black: A forest green for those walks in the woods… the perfect boot for the nature enthusiast!
  • Lime & Olive: Zingy and unmissable, the Lime green in this boot always bring a spark of joy, whatever the weather!

For the Dad Who Likes to be Cosy:

Let’s face it, this applies to most dads! Comfort is a must this Father’s Day. A good pair of worn in trousers, old T-shirt and a day tinkering around the shed may be just what’s in order for your dad! We’ve got just the gift that will add to his cosy Father’s Day. Made from a blend of Australian Merino wool and USA organic combed cotton, our Merry People Quarter socks cushion your foot in all the right places! They’re also moisture wicking and have odour absorbing properties, which is always good in a pair of socks!

We know that socks often make an appearance on Father’s Day gift guides all the time, but trust us - once your dad has a pair of these, he’ll be looking forward to your gifts every Father’s Day. They’re available in four merry colours; Ice Blue, Beetroot, Olive and Black, so there’s something for everyone!

For the Dad Who Wants to Choose:

This kind of dad wants to have a good look at all the options before deciding. So why not give dad exactly what he wants; choice and flexibility! Pick up a digital gift voucher that goes straight to his inbox, so he can get a pair of rain boots (or socks!) when he decides on the perfect gift.

Bonus! For the Dad Who Fixes Everything:

This one is more of an add-on if you’re already thinking of getting dad a pair of Merry People Wellington boots! If your dad likes to know how things work, fix and put things together, then he would definitely appreciate the Merry People Care Kit. The Merry People Care Kit contains all you need to maintain, nourish, protect and prolong the life of your dad’s new rubber boots. With proper maintenance and care he can ensure his boots look as good as new for years to come. This is truly the gift that keeps on giving!

The Care Kit includes:

  • Rubber boot treatment spray
  • Buff and shine protectant
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Three-step boot care with instruction on labels
