Father's day: 10 green gift ideas for your old man

sashi smith

Time is ticking down to Father's day on Sunday 21st June. A great opportunity to show him your love and perhaps give him a little something in return for the gazillion and one things he's likely done for you. Here are a few gift ideas for inspiration:

Bottle opener

For the wine loving dad....

why not get him his own personalised bottle opener.  It is made by the London based Wooden Toy Gallery. It is hand crafted from sustainable European forests / or from recycled timbers. Its a bargain at just over £10, so why not also get him a nice bottle of wine to share between you. A great opportunity to catch up on the latest news or reminisce about the good old times #SUSTAINABLE

Whisky glasses 2

FOR THE WHISKY loving dad..

why not give him a pair of stylish whisky glasses. The completely round design means they rock (literally) but never spill! The glasses from  Ngwenya Glass are made by hand in Swaziland and are also made from 100% recycled glass. If you're feeling flash you could even get him some whisky for you both to share  #SUSTAINABLE

Mens grooming

For the dad in need of some R&R...

why not get him the organic range of cosmetics from Neal's Yard that will be sure to leave leave him feeling refreshed and revitalised. It includes shaving cream, facial wash and moisturiser. The products include a blend of organic oils, are Vegan friendly, and have not been tested on animals #ORGANIC #CHEMICAL FREE

Organic beer

For the beer loving dad...

why not send him a mixed case of 12 Organic Beers from the Black Isle Brewing Co. You can then debate to your hearts content which style is best and why. The beer is brewed up in Scotland near Inverness and they even grow their own malting barley for brewing. I love the fact they even have their own brewery house cow called Molly who eats the malt from the brewery mash tun #ORGANIC

Photo blocks

For the sentimental dad...

why not get him a beautiful set of four photo blocks to remind him of those special times. All you need to do is send "Made Lovingly Made" your four photos and they will print them directly onto the wooden blocks - for an extra charge you can even add a personal message onto the back of each block. They are made from FSC certified Tulip Wood and arrive in a beautiful gift box #SUSTAINABLE

Grape vines

For the green fingered / wine loving dad... 

who has ever had romantic dreams of owning his very own vineyard - how about getting him two ready-to-plant grape vines (one red, one white). If the wine turns out to be any good he might even share it with you! The vines are from the Gluttonous Gardener and have been specially chosen to thrive in our fickle British climate and produce a harvest of delicious grapes within a couple of years. The vines also come in a stunning wooden crate made from sustainable wood #SUSTAINABLE


For the fashion forward dad....

why not buy him some stylish sunnies. They are handmade bamboo sunglasses by Woodmy London with a classic Wayfarer style and smoked lens. Although they are made of wood they are extremely lightweight and also feature UV400 polarised lenses. Every pair comes with a bamboo gift box so no need for faffing with wrapping paper! There are various styles so you'll be sure to find a pair that suits his face shape #SUSTAINABLE

Wine rack

for the wine loving dad...

why not get him a stylish and practical wine rack from Rose & Grey. Not only does it store 5-6 wine bottles, it also holds wine glasses too! It's made from reclaimed scrapwood, the material is sourced from old demolished houses in southwest India and given a second life. I love the story behind them and since they are made from reclaimed wood they each have their own unique character - just like your old man! #SUSTAINABLE

Ipad cover

For the tech loving dad...

why not get him a personalised ipad cover. You can pick up to 9 words that have a special meaning to him, so hopefully it will put a smile on his face every time he uses it. Sophia Victoria Joy makes the cases  from bamboo  - one of the fastest growing woods in the world and they have a gorgeous tactile feel to them #SUSTAINABLE

Recycled deck chairs

FOR the Sailing dad or one in need of a decent rest...

why not get him a deck chair. They are made from fast drying heavy duty recycled sailcloths sourced from genuine round-the-world ocean going yacht sails. They are made by The Reefer Sail Company and you can even see a picture of the specific sail your chair came from on their website! The wooden frames are made from sustainably grown durable Merpauh hardwood, classed by the Timber Research and Development Association as a 'durable hardwood' which is rated for 15-25 years ground contact. Another nice touch is that for a few more pounds they can be personalised for that extra special touch. Its on the more expensive end at £150 - but you could always split it with your siblings #SUSTAINABLE
