The Best Sustainable Gift Ideas for Dad

father's day gift ideas

Is it just me or are guys always hard to shop for? I always struggle to find the best gift for guys, and so I have started keeping tabs for ideas. It helps! I love that all of these gifts have a sustainable or vegan component.  

 There are lots of DIY options and charities to support in honor of your Dads, too.

For guys, I really like making some clean body care products. While the industry is starting to cater to men with high-quality skin and body care products, they can still be difficult to find. 

Try a few of these.

  • DIY shaving cream or a DIY beard oil.
  • Dads love brownies. It’s true. Make up a batch of vegan brownies. We have a great recipe in the Kind Diet for Coffee Fudge Brownies that dads go crazy for. Pack them into a nice tin for a really thoughtful, yummy gift.  
  • Did you ever make paperweights in school as a kid? Decorate a rock, a piece of driftwood, or upcycle a box or bottle.
  • A subscription to an audiobook app or Spotify.
  • For guys with a green thumb, seed starters or mushroom-growing kits are super fun, too.
  • Be sure to also check out our list of nonprofits. A donation made in Dad’s honor can be really nice for the guy who doesn’t ever seem to want or need anything.
