10 Eco Friendly Gift Ideas For Father’s Day

Father’s day is Sunday June 18! This means that special day is only a few days away. When picking the best gift for dad, let’s remember to protect the earth. Here are green fathers day gift ideas for your lovely dad if you’re still thinking of what to get in order to make that day extra special.

1. Reusable water bottle

Reusable water bottles help you stay green and healthy. According to banthebottle.net, antimony found in plastic bottles can cause depression, nausea and vomiting.You can never go wrong by presenting your dad with a beautiful reusable bottle that he can use again and again!

2. Plants

Plants act as air purifiers and it is logical to have plants in our homes to keep the air we breathe in clean and fresh! Great air purifying plants include aloe vera and fern.

From experience, I can tell you that aloe vera does not need a lot of water to survive which also makes it a great plant to have in your home.

3. Organic T shirt

Dad will feel very comfortable a soft t shirt. You can also get him a pair of organic socks to make his day even more special.

4. Eco friendly pen

An eco friendly pen is a cool fathers day gift idea. Make your dad’s day stand out by presenting him with a handcrafted pen made out of bamboo!

5. Organic nuts and seeds

If your dad is a nut lover, you can fill up dry glass jars you already have with his favorite nuts and decorate the bottles however you want! Dad will surely be impressed and thankful for your gift and creativity.

6. Recycled paper ‘story book’

When thinking about fathers day gift ideas from kids, this is an inexpensive way to go about it. Gather unwanted paper around your home, look for sheets that still have some blank spaces and have your kids write an interesting story about places you all visited with dad or draw pictures or simply anything you know daddy will love. It does not have to be 10 or 20 pages long! As long as it’s from the kids, dad is sure to be grateful. Think outside the box!

7. Bamboo Lounge Pants

Your dad will love this comfortable lounge pants. Anytime you see your dad in these trendy pants, you would be glad you got them because they are super comfy. You can even get an extra pair for yourself!

8. Eco friendly backpack

A great functional bag makes life a whole lot easier. If you are still thinking of what to get for your great dad, you might want to consider getting dad this sturdy and functional bag. You can’t go wrong with this stylish and durable bag.

9. Wooden wristwatch

Wooden wristwatches make a great gift. Wooden wristwatches will not only tell the time but will also make your dad’s day an unforgettable one!

10. Garden Trowel

There’s nothing more annoying than having a tool that does not function properly; most especially if it is the only one you have! Your dad will definitely be impressed with a hand trowel that’s made to last long! This hand trowel is great for weeding, digging and other uses and your dad will always praise you for making a great choice!

So those are 10 eco friendly presents I’ve shared with you. Which one will you be considering for your great dad? If you are thinking of something else for your dad, I’d love to know what it is. Please leave comments below. Thank you.

  1. I love the idea of getting my kids to give their Daddy a nice plant for his desk at work! An aloe one seems like a good idea too – looks interesting, good to know it’s pretty resilient, and I like that it’s an air purifier! Perfect for long days at his desk, hard at work! (Maybe I can find some way to get some of the kids’ hand prints on the vase… personalize it a bit!)
    Fun post! Lots of good ideas here, thanks!

    • A plant as a gift is indeed a good idea. I personally love having plants in my home and having the kids’ hand print on them will make it even extra special.

  2. My father has long since passed, but thank you for the the idea of the story book for my Grandchildren. It is not only practical, it is an activity we can do together!

    I also appreciate the tip on the plastic bottles, I am giving them up, pronto!

    • I’m glad you found these ideas to be very helpful. Making a story book together, sounds great and brings the family together! Yes please, ditch the plastic bottles, save money and protect the earth.

  3. I would love any of these gifts for Father’s Day. Thanks for putting me in touch with some eco-friendly options. It’s a worthy enterprise to get into. Not everyone is looking out for the environment. I appreciate it.

    • You’re welcome Alan. Everyone should really be doing their part to care for our earth and in so doing, we we preserve the earth for ourselves and unborn generations.

  4. Love the idea of eco-friendly gifts and all of the ones you have put together are great. I don’t have my father around anymore but I would buy the watch if he was here.

  5. All great items to give my day, but I think I am going to go with the eco pen. He loves to write with a pen but doesn’t have an eco-friendly pen. Thanks for making these recommendations.

    • Yes they really are great items and the eco pen you have chosen is a great choice too! Visit again soon for more ideas and tips.

  6. Bea,

    I’m so glad you mentioned the wooden wristwatch on this list.

    I have been thinking about gifts for my dad for a while now and I know he loves watches. Being a pretty green person myself I like to stick to things that aren’t going to just die out in a couple years and pollute the planet.

    I know many electronics fall into this category, but a nice wooden watch would be ideal to combat this.

    Thanks so much for the input here and perfect timing!

  7. Love this post- many of these items are super practical too. I never considered giving a plant as a gift to a man to be honest- but what a great idea! Great Post!

    • Hi Andrea, I’m glad you love my post. Giving a plant to anyone whether male or female is indeed a great idea since plants help purify the air around us. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Great Website I like the water bottle idea I drink a lot of the bottled water from Costco this will save me a lot of money and not all those plastic bottles to recycle.

    Thank you

    • Reusable water bottles are the best for the environment; so eliminating bottled water completely is the best thing you can do for the environment. Best wishes.
