Your Dad deserves a present that is as unique as he is. If you've been scratching your head about what to get your father, grandfather, brother, uncle or the man who has always been like a father to you, check out these unique, eco-friendly Father's Day gift ideas that put the planet first.
It’s never easy to come up with Father’s Day gift ideas, especially vegan ones! While your Dad- or the adored father figure in your life – deserves to be recognised and appreciated every day of the year, it’s a good idea to use June 19th as the ultimate excuse to shower him in meaningful and sustainable Father’s Day presents that will show him how much you care about both him and the environment.
Look no further, at Wearth we’ve done the hard work for you and come up with these unique, ethical gifts that every Dad will love:
Looking for a punny and meaningful greeting card. Rose + Daff’s card collection is a wonderful choice, with something for everyone. This recyclable greeting card has 0 plastic and is manufactured entirely of recycled post-consumer waste. It comes with a Recycled Kraft envelope.
With this treasure trove of must-have Buff Natural Body Care items, your Dad can rest, breathe, and let go. They can indulge in this therapeutic bath gift set, ideal for a soothing at-home experience. It comes with a sea salt body scrub, body oil and an aromatherapy candle to help them relax.
If your Father lives by the saying “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere,” this present will be sure to elevate his beverages to a whole new level. This rum from Latin America is aged in white oak barrels in the tropics, resulting in a mellow, warm and spicy blend.

Replace your dad’s tattered and worn-out pairs (that are holding on by a thread) with these durable Gardener Socks. Made with recycled materials such as off-cuts of yarn, polyester and regenerated nylon, each pair of Socko socks comes with a mending kit, so it’s a gift that’ll keep on giving.
For all the tired Dads out there, this is for you. Thanks to arnica flowers, this eye oil helps brighten dark circles and discolouration alike. Plus, it comes in a rollerball which is great for massaging the under-eyes and glides across the face for easy application.
Dad’s on the go will love this reusable coffee cup: This cup not only reduces your dad’s plastic and paper waste, but it also contributes to a cleaner future for the planet. The cup is 12 oz in size, and comes with a silicone sleeve that is both beautiful and functional, serving to insulate their beverage while also protecting his hands.
If you’ve booked your dad a well-deserved, sunny holiday this year then make sure he packs a pair of swim shorts with him. These red ethical swim shorts are crafted from recycled plastic bottles, despite that, the fabric is very soft and quick drying and the waistline is elasticated adding extra comfort.

Whilst the latest generation of shaving brands may be modern, there’s something to be said about a good old-fashioned set. Your Father will love this ethical, recycled synthetic fibre shaving brush and weighted double-edge safety razor placed in a steel stand. The set sticks true to tradition whilst also being zero-waste!
Few things make a modern guy feel more like a traditional gentleman than picking up a good quality shaving brush and lathering on a soft coating of good shaving soap.
