I don’t know about everyone else, but I find that shopping for dad for Father’s Day is actually a lot easier than shopping for mom on Mother’s Day.
Perhaps it’s because men, in general, are more into technology, cool gadgets and the great outdoors—products that scream “fun” and “entertainment”.
And when it comes to dad, eco-friendly products are my favorite go-to gift—because they’re actually cool and in most cases “unique”. You see, often times, people forget that the eco-friendly department also consists of electronics and fun solar gadgets. And boy, do men love their gadgets.
So when it comes to shopping for dad on Father’s Day (or any other special occasion), have fun with it! Don’t just assume that eco-friendly gifts limit you to just “beeswax wraps” and “reusable straws”—no! You can do way better!
There are so many awesome Father’s Day products to choose from that are fun and functional and entertaining and still allow you to lower your carbon footprint! You can even introduce your dad to sustainable living with starter kits which are excellent for newbies!
With that said, this Father’s Day gift idea list contains some fun and environmentally friendly gifts that are totally unexpected. From solar powered tech to outdoor Recreation toys—your dad will be pleasantly surprised.
