Looking for ethical and eco-friendly Father’s Day gifts? We’ve got you sorted!
With less that two weeks until Father’s Day it’s time to get those online orders in so there’s no last-minute panic buying and you can still shop small. Here’s a round up of our favourite cards, gifts and treats for dads, all from ethical and sustainable small brands. There’s something here for all budgets so hopefully you’ll find something right up his street.
Cards + Wrap
Seed paper cards like this one by Green Planet Paper are perfect for environmentalists and can be plated instead of ending up in the recycling bin. Hunter Paper Co make cards from recycled coffee cups and have a 4 for 3 offer on all cards and Jeff the Squirrel make colourful cards for occasions too, our favourite is the very cute 'One in Melon' card.
Why not send a message on cake instead of a card? Post Cake make genius greeting cakes that also looks delicious!
Can you even write an eco friendly gift guide without mentioning reusables! If he doesn't have them already a good reusable coffee cup and water bottle is a great gift. Our favourite is the Ocean Bottle which is insulated, works for hot and cold drinks and has a clever built in cup too.
Tony’s Chocolonely make delicious slavery free chocolate (vegan options available) which is sure to be a hit with Dads and of course he’ll be obliged to share!
For coffee lovers Shiloh Roasters are our favourite brand. At Smallkind HQ we have a subscription and drink more Shiloh coffee that we’d like to admit!
Drifting Bear make the most beautiful photo and typography prints which can be personalised. Vintage Playing Cards bottle openers are a perfect gift for the man cave and we love the ‘Rad Dad’ socks and t-shirts by Black and Beech too.
If dad likes twinning with the little ones have a look at Isabee’s handmade organic wolf t-shirts for dads and kids.
Our Eco Men’s Gift set and Eco Letter Box gift set contain plastic free, natural and vegan toiletries for eco conscious dads (or dads you’re trying to convert!). Beard oil and beard brushes are popular with dads too. Why not use our ‘build your own’ option so you can choose what goes into your gift set and make it bespoke to his tastes.
Marigold Skincare have a lovely eco travel gift set including soap, shampoo and a travel tin which is perfect for trips away now that we can go places!
Alice + Peg’s limited-edition gift set includes soap, tea and yummy chocolate to help dad unwind. A wooden massage ball and body butter (along with a DIY massage) would go down a treat with stressed out and tired dads. Seedboms make a great low cost gift for gardeners and are great to involve the kids too.
Hopefully you’ve found something here to suit whether it’s for dad, partner or grandad. Shop our Fathers Day section for more ethical gift ideas.
