With Father’s Day approaching, we have collected the coolest eco-friendly or handmade gifts. Because to be honest, a sustainable gift made in the right conditions makes you feel just that little bit better. If everyone makes a little effort, together we can make this a better place. We are starting with these great gifts.
Dad. A son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love
The stylish dad
For the stylish daddies, we found cute shirts at Robyne. They are vegan, ethical and eco-friendly. All the clothes are made out of bamboo so they last very long and can be recycled again. On top of that, even the shipping packaging exist of recycled products. With all these plus points, you definitely will score on Father’s Day!
To stay in the bamboo theme, we found a nice webshop where they sell shirts, sweats, and hoodies made of bamboo with hand-embroidered quotes. Margot from Mila & Jules is a young entrepreneur who thinks it’s important to create awareness around ‘sustainability’ and ”fair trade. To make everything even better, the clothes are unisex, so you can definitely buy a matching outfit for you and your dad. We love the beautiful designs!
The business Father
These pieces are essential for all the fathers who have to work in costume every day. The bow ties from recovered ties and the cufflinks inlaid with fish leather are handmade, so no mass production is used. If you prefer something your father can use in his spare time, you can always go for the hats and caps. All pieces are made with a lot of love and expertise by the Belgian entrepreneur Capadicarina. This way you support our local traders.
The Leather lover
Annick from Malabi is doing everything she can to spoil your father on his special day. From leather keychains, wine coolers to cool leather barbeque shorts, she’s got it all. The leather is vegetal toned and optimally used to reduce as much waste as possible. If you can’t choose between all the fun handmade stuff, you can always opt for a gift voucher.
The creative father
With this gift, you will surely score a lot of points. Give the empty bottle of your daddy’s favorite drink a second life by turning it into a lamp. At Léon, they reuse the bottles to prevent them from being tilted into the glass container and turn them into beautiful lamps. We are already big fans!
The father who already has everything
Let’s face it; everybody needs soap. Why don’t you choose a lovely handmade soap from Three by one, instead of getting it at the drugstore? The brand has a strong ethical focus and provides zero waste during production. With all these advantages you can’t help but choose these products, can you?
The ‘I often lose my keys’ dad
Last but not least, we finish off with Monielle’s cute leather key rings. All the Moniëlle accessories are handmade in their atelier in Belgium in the right social conditions. They also make limited series and ‘made to order ‘pieces to reduce oversupply. So be fast to order your beautiful keychain before it’s too late
We hope that we inspired you to buy a beautiful, eco-friendly, or handmade gift for your dear father. Please let us know what your daddies thought of the lovely presents.
