There’s still time to spoil your dad on Father’s Day! Father’s Day is held on the third Sunday of June here in the United Kingdom, so only a few days to go. These gifts are all eco-friendly and you can order them from the safety and comfort of your home.
Books That Give Back
If your Dad’s a bookworm with a big heart: Shelter Box is a book subscription service making a difference. Each month, subscribers receive a book that they’ve collectively chosen, five options are suggested and members get to vote the one they would like to read. Each book tells a story inspired by different cultures, experiences and people in the real world. A portion of the money you pay each month goes towards a Shelter Box. Each box is filled with essentials like tents, first aid supplies and toiletries. These go towards helping to rehabilitate families who have been hit by disaster. You can pay as little as £10 a month, or instead choose to donate as much as you like.

Plant A Seed
If your Dad loves nothing more than getting out in the garden, this one is for him: A gardening subscription box, offering seasonal deliveries. A delivery from Seed Pantry allows you to select six seed varieties for your box. A great gardening gift idea, each delivery is tailored to the season, so they’ll arrive at the right time for sowing. You can opt to receive flower, veg or herb seeds, or a combination and you can skip, pause or cancel deliveries at any point. Plant some flowers, save the bees!

If you live away from your parents, it’ll no doubt be tough not being able to get together to celebrate this Father’s Day (given the lockdown restrictions) and for some it will be a day of remembrance. Whatever your situation, I hope your day is filled with love.
