Father’s Day is fast approaching. For many of us we are in a situation where we either haven’t seen our fathers for the best part of the last 3 months. Or, if they are the fathers of our children, we have been seeing a lot more of them than we usually would do! Either way, we cannot celebrate Father’s Day in the way that we would normally advocate for. A day out, a restaurant meal or a family get together for example. This year Fathers Day presents mean more than ever.
More than ever we want to make our loved ones feel special. But that doesn’t mean we need to throw out our sustainable mindset or buy presents for the sake of it. So, ditch the socks or wine (come on, you know you were going to throw both in your next Ocado shop…!) We show you the top 12 presents you can buy for a sustainable man on Fathers Day this year.
Whether you are back to work or packing up your lunch to take it into the garden, these ‘vegan leather’ bags (aka washable paper!) are perfect to pop your sandwiches and baking in and keep it fresh til lunch. Handmade, washable paper bags. Made from a mixture of wood pulp, cotton and synthetic latex, you can even put these in your washing machine!
- Reusable Insulated Coffee Cup, £16.99
A great little addition to the vleather bag, these 340ml insulated coffee (or tea) cups will keep drinks hot – or cold if you prefer. High quality double walled stainless steel construction will ensure the long lasting and freshest flavour of every drink with no metallic after taste. Choose from a range of colours but we love the classic black steel.
If you are looking for something to keep at home instead of taking coffee on the go, you cant go past the iconic Ballyneal mug. With a gently curved, solid body and large, pulled curved handle this mug suits all size of hands and has a lovely weight to it. Fill it with his favourite sweeties and he will be in for a nice surprise!
- Whiskey Ice Blocks, £12
Crafted from recycled Irish whiskey barrels, these whiskey blocks are completely different from anything on the market. A unique combination of whiskey stones, ice blocks, and beautiful Irish whiskey barrel. They are perfect for someone who appreciates the finer things in life – a gift they will treasure and love for years to come
- Tyre Wallet, £24
Yes thats right, the ultimate in recycling! This sleek and functional single-fold wallet is made using the soft inner tubes of used tyres. The centre has the pockets for cards and a zip on the back for a coin compartment means this will fit neatly wherever you want to keep it.
Eco Friendly Skin Care
This award winning moisturiser is perfect for the man who just wants one thing to do all jobs and leave the counter clutter free. Tackling beards, face, body, hair, feet and hands. This ‘ALL-IN-ONE MAN BALM’ is a great way to benefit from the healing qualities of herbs and botanicals.
- Energising Eye Gel, £19.99
All that screen time and zoom calls take their toll on your eyes, often leaving them feeling tired and sore. This energising eye gel comes in a full compostable bamboo pot. It instantly brightens and hydrates the skin below the eye, reducing the fatigued-look and giving an awakening sensation. What a great feeling!
Keeping on the energising thought path, this multi purpose hair-face-body solid shampoo bar gives Head and Shoulders a run for its money when clearing dandruff or caring for a dry, flaky scalp. It also makes a great shaving bar too!
All that gardening and DIY we’ve been indulging in over the past 3 months can take it’s toll on hard working hands. Whether you are a gardener pulling out roses with your bare hands or a climber that skinned their fingers hanging off an epic overhang (totally possible!) this hand salve will promote the healing of the skin and get you back on your A-game quickly.
- Modern Plastic Free Safety Razor, £25.95
These razors look luxurious and feel great in your hand. They are weighted and angled to ensure a perfect shave every time. Just pop in a blade and let the razor do the work for you. Delivered in a cool presentation box they are available in Gun Metal, Black and Chrome. The plastic free razor includes a pack of 5 blades.
- Shaving Set and Stand, £120
Or if you are already convinced the life long razor is the way to go, why not get them a full set of brush, razor and stand. Literally a piece of art in your bathroom. This will definitely ensure they will never reach for your razor by accident again!
- Skin Care Gift Box, £25
A great combo of natural deodorant, lip care and the aforementioend man balm make this a really thoughtful and interesting gift box without a sock in sight.
This Beard Bundle contains both a beard oil and beard balm. The beard oil softens and repairs the beard. The balm nourishes and styles (the balm is the difference between hipster chic and hobo chic…). 100% natural, vegan products which come as a result of years of experimentation by a dedicated team of bearded men!
The Ultimate Gentlemen’s Pack consists of pieces beautifully handcrafted from recycled Irish whiskey barrels. They have been carved from a recycled Irish whiskey barrel stave with beautifully rounded edges, sanded to a silky smooth finish and polished with handmade Irish organic linseed wood polish. Consists of a hipflask, tie clip, bottle opener, ice blocks and cufflinks
This beautiful gift set includes a solid shampoo bar, a solid conditioning bar and a timeless enamel soap dish perfect for any bathroom. The pH balance of this shampoo is much closer to the pH of your scalp eliminating a transition phase which means beautifully soft clean hair from day one.
So there you have some inspiration for presents for the fathers in your life this Fathers Day. Feel good about making little changes with a big impact.
