Father’s Day Gift Ideas
It’s nearly time for Father’s Day and I have some awesome gift ideas for the Natural, New Age Dad!
Things that are eco-friendly, organic, fair trade, upcycled, healthy or just plain cool.
What you are you getting your Dad or partner for Father’s Day? Leave me a comment and let us know!
♥ Chocolate and Beer.
You can’t go wrong with this gift pack from Raw Earth Hampers! It contains organic Mountain Goat beer, Organic Times chocolate coated macadamias and Alter Eco Truffles, all presented in a gift box with a card. Order online and get it posted straight to Dad. Too easy! Check it out here.
♥ Dad’s Grab Bag from Tropical Harvest
The lovely people at Tropical Harvest have put together a gift bag with a difference for Father’s Day this year! There are five bags of their 100% Australian, sulphur, preservative and additive free dried fruit. Dad will like munching on banana, pineapple, apple/pear, mango and rockmelon/honeydew. It also includes a voucher for your next purchase.
We love this fruit so much – it tastes amazing and there is absolutely no added sugar either. Just pure natural fruit dried with love by an Aussie owned family business in North Queensland! Get Dad’s Grab Bag here.
♥ Surfing Foodies.
The Blue Ducks is an awesome cookbook from Aussies Darren Robertson and Mark LaBrooy. They are the new faces of a grassroots approach to cooking – delicious food based on an ethos of community, sustainability and growing-it-local. Professional chefs, mad surfers, keen gardeners and foragers, Darren and Mark live by this philosophy in everything they do. (Actually don’t worry about Dad, I want a copy of this!!) Get it here.
♥ Miod for Men
Miod is one of my very favourite skincare ranges. Developed by Anna in Victoria, the range is handmade in small batches and contains minimal ingredients. Her men’s range includes a Cleansing Shaving Gel, Soothing Aftershave Oil, Daily Face Cream and Beard Oil. I love that they are also very reasonably priced! Get it here.
♥ Solar-powered Phone Charger.
If your Dad is always running out of phone charge, make it easy for him to charge on the go! This lightweight phone charger uses solar cell and lithium battery technology. With connections for all types of phones, this eco-friendly gift is a winner for Dad. Get it here.
♥ Fermenting Crock.
For the Dad who loves to create in the kitchen, these fermenting crocks are so hot right now. They come in a kit with everything you need to make fermented vegetables, sauerkraut and kimchi. Get it here.
♥ Australian Geographic Outdoor
♥ Upcycled Mouse Pad
Something quirky, fun and eco-friendly for Dad under $6! I am loving this mouse pad that ‘used to be a car tyre’ from the Oxfam shop. Get it here.
♥ Radiation Blocker Leather Pouch
This is what the Natural New Age Dad is getting this year. For his work, he needs to carry his mobile phone and the radiation always bothers him. This leather pouch is perfect – you can clip it onto a belt and it has protective anti-radiation shield between the outer and inner layers. It comes in brown or black leather and it’s a great price! Get it here.
So that’s my list of awesome things for Dad this year!!
