Father's Day is just around the corner. For the eco conscious, it can be a struggle to find eco friendly gifts to give, especially to fathers or your hubby. It's a typical saying: "You don't need to get me anything", and that's fair enough. If that's truly the case, a card, a nice meal or an activity you can do together, is probably the best gift you can give him.
If you do think he needs something new and you want to celebrate him whilst being kinder to the environment at the same time, here are some suggestions.
I've put together a list of gifts you can give which will support small UK businesses, who has sustainability at their hearts.
Eco friendly self care gifts for Father's Day
Little Wet Shave Set
A great plastic free shaving set containing a chrome double edged safety razor with extra blades and a natural, vegan shaving soap. The soaps come in 3 scents you can choose from:
Rosemary & Lime
Lavender & Orange
Lavender, Lemongrass, Tea Tree & Peppermint
And there's free delivery on UK orders for this set!
Lavender and Geranium Shampoo & Conditioner Bars
These bars can be bought separately or as a set. The shampoo bar is nourishing, long-lasting and uses caster oil for a creamy and deeply conditioning lather that cleans and cares for the locks and scalp.
The conditioner bar leaves hair super-duper soft and marvellously manageable by using a special blend of cocoa butter and castor.

Wooden Hair Comb
There are so many benefits from making the switch to a wooden comb, which you can read more about in the post Why A Wooden Comb Is So Much Better For Your Hair Than A Plastic Brush.
Wooden combs are gentler on the hair and nourishing. Some of the benefits include stimulating the scalp without bruising or scraping the skin, which will increase blood circulation and encourage healthy oil production.
This beautifully hand carved hair comb with a heart motif and hand braided linen cord is made in the U.K. from local sustainably sourced sycamore wood.
Aurora Oil Serum
Inspired by the Northern Lights that occasionally decorate the night sky over Scotland, the Aurora Oil Serum is designed to delight as an ultimate treat for his skin.
It deeply moisturises and softens the skin without containing any pore-clogging or skin-irritating ingredients (incl. fragrance or essential oils).
The serum soothes irritation and inflammation whilst it actively reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Handmade Coffee + Vanilla Soy Candle
If he loves coffee and vanilla, this combination is a winner!
This candle is made from the finest soy wax to burn cleaner, with very little soot released as the candle burns.
It is hand-crafted entirely in Farnham, Surrey in small batches and is vegan and toxic-free containing only soy and essential oils.

These stylish leather sandals are great in summer for an evening party, weddings or for the office. They are the ultimate treat for Father's Day!
