9 Father’s Day gift ideas for every kind of Dad
Brought to you by Nuffnang and Good Spender
Are you still searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift? Forget fighting the crowds at the shops in the lead up to Father’s Day and instead get your shopping done online. Our Father’s Day gift guide features products that are a little different to what you might find in the shops. The funds from all of these products go directly to supporting disadvantaged groups, which means that not only is dad getting a great gift, but the gift is also making a difference to someone’s life. Whether it’s here in Australia or somewhere else in the world. These nine gift ideas feature something for every kind of dad, no matter what he is in to. Be sure to let dad know the difference his gift has made to other people’s lives too!
These bottles of wine have been sourced from independent Australian wineries, with every pack including both red and white wines. Not only does dad get to enjoy some boutique wine (hopefully he shares a little too), but also at least 50 per cent of the profit from every sale is donated to social causes.
Phones or tablets going flat while on the go is something we can all relate to; it happens to me regularly. This battery pack from Illumination fixes that problem. Just charge it once a week, and it’s ready to charge phones or tablets at the same speed as a wall outlet. It’s one of those gifts that will make dad’s life that much easier. Illumination uses its profits to provide solar products to communities around the world with limited or no access to power.
If you live in or have visited Melbourne, you might have heard of STREAT cafes, which provide training and work experience for disadvantaged youth. Even if you can’t visit STREAT, through Good Spender, you can still get your hands on its award winning Social Blend Coffee, which any coffee-drinking dad will love.
Underwear is a pretty standard Father’s Day gift, but these are a little different. These undies are high quality and super comfortable, as dad would expect. For every pair sold, another pair is donated to a child in need through the Buy Undies Give Undies partnership with schools in Africa and Vanuatu. What is there not to love about that?
What would a Father’s Day gift be without a card? 50 per cent of the profits from these cards are put toward empowering women and girls through education and leadership programs, and the cards look great too.
This one is perfect for Dads that like to take care of their skin, including shaving gel, hand and body wash, and skin cream. The main ingredient in all of these products is extra virgin olive oil sourced from regional Victoria. Speaking from experience, anything that contains olive oil as a main ingredient makes skin amazingly soft, so this gift will be a winner.
The Olie Gift Pack for Men is sold by Ethical Living. Through its sustainable business practices, they nurture relationships between producers and consumers. This results in better prices and decent working conditions that help improve the lives of people in need.
This is a great gift that Dads can share with their children. Seed Tiles are paper ‘tiles’, which have seeds attached, making them easy to plant. If your kids are anything like mine, they will absolutely love heading outside everyday to check on the progress of their seedlings, and will love tasting the veggies they have grown. They are also suitable for small spaces, perfect for small backyards or even balconies.
By purchasing Seed Tiles, you are helping provide opportunities for community engagement, increased social integration as well as employment opportunities to disadvantaged people in Canberra.
What would Father’s Day be without a pair of new socks? These socks come in a range of different styles, with the profits from each style supporting a different cause – from hunger, to education, and HIV. These socks are also manufactured in Fair Trade certified conditions, so everyone wins.
If dad plays sport or heads to the gym often, this is the gift for him. This decent sized sports bag has side pockets and plenty of space to chuck everything in the main compartment. Every sale benefits Indigenous communities in a massive way, with profits being reinvested into Indigenous community initiatives. If dad isn’t into sport, be sure to check out the range of Brothaboy shirts.
