Ethical Father’s Day Gifts
With Father’s Day just around the corner we thought now is a great time to help you find the perfect gift that says ‘I love you, Dad.’ To all of us, our Dad is the best in the world and on the 21st of June we get to celebrate that, and what better way to get across how much you appreciate your dad than by giving him an ethical gift that show your love for the world around him too.
Perfect Skin Care
Toiletries are a standard gift for everyone, but with such a huge range of brands available it can be overwhelming to find the right product. We’ve got some wonderful gift sets from brands like Scaramouche & Fandango and Bluebeard’s Revenge, both UK based brands that create paraben and SLS free skin care that is not tested on animals and suitable for a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. Bluebeard’s Revenge’s expertise lies with shaving, they offer all the right tools to get the closest shave including balms, creams, a shaving brush along with a straight edge razor or scimitar razor which make great gifts on their own. You can look to Scaramouche & Fandango for their body care made with a signature scent and presented in wonderfully simple packaging that oozes sophistication.
Socks, yet another standard gift but something everyone actually loves to get. We want to encourage everyone to stay away from fast fashion, that’s why we offer a lovely range of soft bamboo and cotton socks from Braintree Thoughtful Clothing, a brand that uses natural, organic and recycled fabrics for their clothing that is ethically made in factories the company has worked with since it began, forming close bonds and ensuring strict ethical practices are upheld. Bamboo is also a great material for socks as it has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties so it will keep your Dad’s feet healthy, happy and most importantly they won’t smell! Get them from our men’s fashion range while there here, once they’re gone that’s it! Don’t forget we’ve got a organic men’s underwear section as well.
Honestly, I can’t think of a better gift than chocolate, well, maybe Fair Trade and organic chocolate but it’s still chocolate…you can see where I’m going with this. We have some delicious chocolate bars that are great as an extra little gift like the Tall, Dark & Handsome bar from Makers & Merchants, a simple Fairtrade organic dark chocolate bar made in the UK and with some seriously stylish packaging. If your Dad likes something a little bit more exciting then the Chocolate Discovery Library from Montezuma’s is perfect, it includes a selection of 5 dark and milk organic chocolate bars in delicious flavours. For those who favour sweets over chocolate, have a look at our selection of vegetarian and gluten free jelly sweets from Jealous Sweets, available in three different sizes and tasting just as delicious as anything you’ll find in the supermarket.
If you’re looking for a more sophisticated gift we offer a small choice of cufflinks, such as these Sphere Cufflinks from LA Jewellery, made in the UK using recycled silver. For a quirkier option we have a Moustache Tie Clip and Cufflinks set from Tearcraft, made with polished silver by a Fair Trade organisation in India.
If you’re looking for more a more specific gift for a gadget obsessed Dad or a green gardener, have a look at our Father’s Day Gift Guide which offers a much larger range of unique and exciting gifts to show how much you love your Dad.
