From eco-baseball caps to a squatty potty to a heartfelt Father’s Day video — here are some pretty cool Father’s Day gift ideas for all the fun dads out there.



A Ball Cap for Father's Day


If you’re looking for an excellent gift for the dads in your life, there’s nothing better than a cool hat. Dads tend to love a good hat, plus they protect them from the harsh rays of the sun. We know that there’s no shortage of hat designs out there, however, and some of them just won’t be the right fit for your dad this Father’s Day.


We love Storied Hats for Father’s Day and their environmentally friendly product. They’ve come up with a technique of using cactus for leather rather than animals, coffee grounds have become performance fabrics, and the visor is made from algae biomass — plus no logos.


Now that sounds perfect for any dad this Father’s Day. Eco-friendly and hip designs, what more can dad ask for this Father’s Day!

Give Dad an Outdoor Coat


Outdoors, hiking, backpacking, camping, fish, boating around. Sounds like your dad? The great outdoors is a beautiful place, but the elements can be harsh at times.

So, let’s protect dad from the elements this Father’s Day with high-performance outerwear from recycled plastic, such a plastic bottles and plastics from the ocean. What Norden is doing is truly impressive. The production of their outerwear consumes 45% less energy, 20% less water and gives off 30% less greenhouse gas emissions than other coat manufacturers.

Norden also offers a buy-back program for your old winter coats, and every two seasons, you can upgrade your dad’s coat! This is perfect because we know that dad will wear his jacket until it’s hanging on by a thread.

These jackets are the perfect give for the outdoor kind of dad this Father’s Day.

A Squatty Potty


There are so many dad jokes that we can make with this one, but we’ll keep it clean.


Dad’s are known to spend a lot of time on the toilet, so why not help to elevate their bathroom experience for Father’s Day? We all learn that Everyone Poops and dad does more than others do, so let’s give him the gift that he’ll get a lot of use out of — a squatty potty.

Plus, they even have a bidet which is super environmentally friendly. For example, did you know that it takes 1.5 pounds of wood and 37 gallons of water to produce a single roll of toilet paper? Whereas a bidet only uses 1/8th of a gallon peruse, and no trees harmed.


Give your dad the eco-friendly and luxurious gift of a bidet and the #1 way to go #2 — a squatty potty for this Father’s Day.

Mugs, Growlers, Wine Tumblers... and More!


A staple gift for any dad on Father’s Day — a mug.

Let’s try to up his mug game this Father’s Day — MiiR is here to help. They have an array of colors to choose from. So whether your dad is on the go, in the office, at home, or in the great outdoors, they have it all.

Not only do they have mugs, but you can also choose from a variety of drinkware to match his drinks of choice — get dad a beer growler or even a wine tumbler. So whatever his tastes are for this Father’s Day, there is a wide selection of drinkware for him!


Plus, they set aside a portion of revenue to fund projects focused on clean water, environmental concerns, and community-based efforts.

Fair-Trade Coffee for Him


Think about what dad really loves — coffee! Dads and coffee go hand in hand. So, to go with his brand new mug, get him a bag, or several, of coffee from a local coffee shop in your neighborhood or his favorite coffee from the place that he frequents all the time.


Keep it extra strong and local.


Coffee has always been in his hands during those early mornings and late nights that he’s spent with you. So it’s time to thank him for all the late nights and early mornings that he’s spent with you over the years of growing up.

Donation in Dad's Name


Have a dad that has everything? Your dad wants it, so he buys it, leaving you to figure out what he wants or needs. Donating in his name is a beautiful gift to give him.

It’s such a lovely idea to donate to a charity for Father’s Day. Think of a cause or issue close to your dad’s heart, which he believes strongly in, and donate to the cause. You can either make it in honor of your father, who just doesn’t need anything right now. Or you can make it in honor of a father or grandfather who you are remembering and is no longer with you.


Whatever the reason, it’s a great way to say I Love You while doing something meaningful. So here is an excellent list of charitable organizations worth looking into and contributing to today.
