Father’s Day is on the 16th of June this year (2019), so I thought I’d do my eco gifts roundup nice and early in case you wanted to find a sustainable treat for the man in your life.
We all know the best things in life are free and time together is the ultimate gift, but if you do want to get something, then here are 11 unusual and eco-friendly gifts for a man you love.
If you have younger kids who want to make something themselves for him, then check out these awesome ideas on Pinterest!
1. A Chilly’s Bottle
If he doesn’t already have a decent reusable water bottle, then I really recommend a Chilly’s bottle as it looks so chic. More importantly, it keeps cold drinks cold throughout the day and keeps hot drinks hot as well. A stylish way to get him to drink more water.
2. Send a tree
By planting a tree together you’re planting a memory and Tree2mydoor will send you a gorgeous tree with instructions so that you can do just that!
3. A cable organiser
Support an independent craftsperson on Etsy by getting a unique organiser that will prevent his cables from getting broken and saving the environment by not having to buy replacements.
4. Recycled Clock
This unique and fairly traded clock is a great decoration for any space he uses in the home. It is made from recycled materials and so won’t cost the earth.
5. Circuit board frame
Another funky and original upcycled gift is this wonderful circuit board frame that you can use to display his favourite family photograph.
6. Eco coffee cup
This majorly stylish coffee cup is made from bamboo, which is much more eco-friendly than most materials and it biodegrades. Many coffee shops offer discounts for reusable cups so it will save him money as well.
7. Handmade plates
Buy him a gorgeous set of crockery that he’ll treasure forever. These beauties from Etsy support craftspeople and take away the need for disposable kitchenware. If he’s a cook who spends a lot of time in the kitchen then he’ll treasure these forever.
8. Preloved vinyl
If he’s into music then Oxfam or other charity shops can have records that he’ll love hidden away in their drawers. It’s always worth having a rummage for used books and vinyl as they make great presents without harming the environment and all whilst giving to charity. If you can’t find what you want on the high street, then check out the Oxfam online shop below.
9. Vintage clothing
As well as music, charity shops can be a haven for fashionistas, so again, it’s always worth having a look to find incredible vintage clothes and accessories that would make great gifts! The best thing is that some items are one-offs so he’ll really appreciate the effort you’ve made to find them. If you can’t find what you want on the high street, then check out the Oxfam online shop below.
10. A veg box
Another great gift for chefs and health-fanatics alike is a veg box delivered every week! To find out more about the joys of a veg box and why everyone should get one, then check out my article or click on the link below!
11. A scratch map
If he’s a lover of travel, then why not buy him this very cute scratch map so that he can put it on the wall? A unique gift that will remind him of all the memories he’s made with his family.
