Tuesday, 24 May 2022

If you’re looking to treat your dad to a present that’s more environmentally conscious we’ve curated a list of eco-friendly Father’s Day gift ideas to give you all the inspiration you need. 

There’s everything from sustainable garden accessories, upcycled drinks glasses, recycled gifts and everything in between, you’re sure to find something unique.

 

1. For The Outdoorsy Dads

 

Why not show your dad just how much you care for him by planting him his very own tree? The National Trust’s Plant A Tree campaign helps the organisation to protect our woodlands. Plus, it’s a gift that quite literally keeps on giving, as trees breathe life into our world, and help us in our fight against climate change.

 

If your dad is always looking for somewhere to store those small fiddly items while he’s busy in the garden then the Burgon & Ball Bits & Bobs Tin is perfect. He can keep his seeds, labels, snips and pencils all in this useful compact storage tin.

 

Additionally, the Garden Caddy Organiser with carrying handle is perfect for the shed, greenhouse or allotment. It can store all the essentials like seeds, scissors, twine and more.

 

2. For The Dads That Like A Drink 

 

The great thing about eco-friendly gifts is that they can be so unique. Take for example our carefully and beautifully upcycled Bombay Sapphire Drinking Glasses. Perfect for gin lovers, these stylish glasses won’t be found anywhere on the high street.

 

You can even pair the gin glasses with this wonderful ​​recycled Gordon Gin Bar Buddy, which is a genius invention. The Gordons gin bottle is flattened to create a gorgeous and practical emerald green bar buddy for slicing those all-important lemons and limes for the perfect G&T.

 

To top this off you’ve got the Gin Growbar, where you can grow your own aromatic garnishes. The Growbar contains lemon basil, cucumber & wild bergamot!

 

3. For Practical Dads

 

All practical dads need a reusable coffee cup. They’re not only a simple way to reduce plastic waste, you’ll also be helping save your dad money at all of his favorite coffee shops that offer discounts on bringing your own cup.

 

Or, why not set your dad up with a weekly organic food and vegetable delivery box. The likes of Abel and Cole deliver a reliable, weekly delivery of fresh, seasonal fruit & veg with their organic boxes. For each box your dad enjoys, they’ll donate a portion of organic fruit or veg to fight food poverty, through their One Box: One Portion initiative.

 

Alternatively, you can treat your dad to some practical office accessories and stationary. With leather notepads, desk organisers, ipad and laptop sleeves and much more, you’re bound to discover something to impress him.

 

4. For Quirky Dads

 

For those dads who embrace anything a bit different and love a bright, bold pattern, there’s plenty of gifts that will do the trick. 

 

Dad’s can never have too many pairs of socks, especially when they’re as funky as these animal patterned socks. The best thing about these socks is that your dad can put them on knowing that they have helped towards some amazing animal charities. For example, for the Orangutan socks 10% of the manufacturers profits go to Orangutan Foundation. You can also support charities for the likes of leopards, penguins, pandas and sloths.

 

Who doesn’t love David Attenborough? Well, now Dave can be a feature within your family home, with the Attenborough Door Stopper Wedgie, wedging your door open and reminding you to reduce your carbon footprint. There’s plenty of other famous faces to choose from in the Wedgie range, with Elvis, John Lennon, Prince, Superman, the Queen and many more.

 

5. For The Hard To Buy For Dads

 

Dads can be hard work to buy presents for but there’s still plenty of unique gifts that will appeal to even the most difficult to buy for fathers. Our beautiful Vertical Moon & Tide Clock is a contemporary piece that tracks the tide and the lunar cycle. Perfect for predicting tide times and all-important harbour tide heights. It also makes for an eye-catching homeware piece.
