Sustainable & Eco Friendly Father’s Day Gift Guide

Sustainable & Eco Friendly Father’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s day tends to get all the glory, but dads are equally important and often much easier to please! With the current lockdown situation, it is still uncertain whether families will be able to get together outside of their own households at this stage. Why not do something special and unique especially if you don’t live at home anymore?

Personally, I find buying gifts for others super stressful as to me it’s so important to buy something that the person will use. I can think of nothing worse than buying a gift that will end up in the back of the cupboard just to be thrown out a few years later. Here is a list of our favourite sustainable and eco-friendly father’s day gift options:
