Sustainable (& Ethical) Gifts For Dad!

Hey, Mamas! Today I wanted to share with you my personal shopping cart for Sustainable Gifts For Dad! Whether it’s your own father, a father figure, husband, boyfriend, teacher…these will all be perfect! I decided to make this list to spread some good brand awareness, share some super cool zero waste gift ideas, and highlight the need for more sustainable father gifting options.

I was really shocked by how little options our male counterparts had in the sustainable world, but at the same time, I only found amazing quality and superb options. The pickings may be slim, but sometimes that’s exactly what we need. Fewer distractions, less “options” and just simple and great quality goods. Let’s dive into this Sustainable Gifts For Dad list!

Organic Basics “Complete Pack”

So, one of the first things that I had to get Martin was this set from Organic Basics. We had chatted a bit about the importance of high-quality underwear (in this blog post) in our wardrobe and it was only fitting to make sure my love was suited up with the highest quality as well.

This is Martin’s second pack from this company and he absolutely loves it. I decided to order another pack with different colors to extend his wardrobe. He now owns one white, one blue and one black t-shirt, various boxer shorts in grey and black, and plenty of socks to hold him over for the year. The quality is outstanding, the t-shirts are a must have for any wardrobe (women and men – I own one in black and white!) and the socks are extremely lovely for Martin’s police officer job where he is on his feet all day in boots.



Personalised Pocket Knife

My father is in love with his pocket knives and this will 100% be his next gift for a birthday or Father’s Day (don’t worry, he never reads our blog posts haha!). I really love this idea and it’s made by a small shop on Etsy!

8.5″ Over All Knife- 4.75″ Closed
Spring Assisted Opening Acton
1/3 Serrated Blade
LED Light
Fire Starter
Bottle Opener
Seat Belt Cutter
Glass Breaker
Liner Lock
Metal Pocket Clip
Individually Boxed


Personalised Tool Box

Sustainable Gifts for Dad
This is such a perfect gift for any father who loves to fix up the house. This is another one that I have on my “list” for my own father. He would just adore this and he 100% helped us build our lives. Makes me want to cry!
The Hammer:
The handle is crafted from hickory hardwood which can almost take just as much abuse as the hardened steel head itself.
This hammer is a standard hammer size – the one your father and grandad would have used.
The Gift Box:
The gift box is crafted from renewable and sustainable rubber hardwood. After 25 years the tree stopped producing rubber from its sap, where it was cut down, replanted and turned into wood slabs which we expertly crafted the hammers box from to fit your hammer perfectly, with an assortment of nails which are included.



A Frame that speaks so much more than words

It has a dark walnut finish on the sides and back.

The BEST T-Shirt Ever!!

I’m not going to lie – I’ll probably steal this shirt as soon as it arrives haha!

This is like a free massage plus nap time all sorted into one very cool gift. Promise everyone will love it!


A REAL Razor!

A bamboo safety razor

I purchased this razor for Martin many months ago but I feel like this would be the PERFECT gift for any man (or woman) who shaves!

I have personally used this razor for my own leg shaving needs as well and it’s phenomenal. Martin uses this every other day for shaving his face and once in a while for his chest. He always tells me how cool he feels using such an old school looking razor.

I really cannot recommend it enough. All you need to do is to replace the small little razor blade inside every so often (it’s been months since we have done this) and you are set. No need to waste any more money on razors!



Beard Grooming Kit


Father's Day Shopping List

I purchased this kit for my brother, who has a fabulously mountain-man like beard, for his birthday in April and he adored it. I also sent him some lovely beard balms from Etsy as well, fancy!

If you have a bearded man in your life, I highly recommend pampering him with some bearded gifts. There are just so many fun options out there! For us, I just made sure to find vegan options that stayed clear of beeswax.

I hope you enjoyed this Sustainable shopping list and remember, the best gift you can give anyone is love and attention.

Sometimes, all our loved ones need is for us to put the phone down, turn off the TV and give them a hug, a kiss or even a good old back rub.

Never underestimate the value of your heart.
