Father’s Day is fast approaching and, unlike Christmas with it’s helpful chocolate countdown, you’re often left unaware of the approaching present buying until it’s too late and you buy something rubbish from the corner shop. So here is your warning. Father’s Day is Sunday 16th June. Not only that but here are five fantastic dad-appropriate gifts. Hopefully they will make up for the leftover Easter egg you got him last year.
Top to toe natural grooming on the go from organic beauty brand Green People. Made with natural, fairly-traded and organic ingredients, these skin treats are suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. The organic travel kit contains: Scrub it Exfoliator (50ml), Shave Now (dual purpose), Wash and Shave (50ml), Cool Style Shower Wash (50ml) and Itch Away Shampoo (50ml). A great gifts for vegetarian or vegan fathers!
Sticking with grooming for now, this complete wet shaving kit from EthicallyEngineered is the real deal. Not only do you get a safety razor and blades, a vegan shaving brush and organic shaving soap (made with solar power) but it all comes beautifully packaged in a box made from reclaimed wood from old Chicago buildings. Nice.
No one wants to see dad’s builder’s bum. So get him one of these awesome belts made from 100% recycled material. Hand made in Italy, each one is different and can be made from inner tubes, old seat belts, bike tyres, aluminium bolts and antennas.
Now these are seriously cool. Made with sustainable and fast growing bamboo and UV400 lenses, these shades will make your old man look and feel like a star. And with the weather looking like it’s finally realised that it’s June, these will be worn and loved instantly.
If trendy eyewear isn’t your dad’s thing then these coasters might be more appropriate. Made in Northern Indian by a FairTrade company, these recycled coasters are ethical as well as a bit flash. You should probably buy him a beer or two to try them out.
Happy Father's Day!
