Eco-friendly Father's Day gift ideas

Posted by Jane Southgate on

Are you looking for eco-friendly gifts for Dad this Father’s day? We’ve put together a selection of sustainable Father’s Day gifts that we are sure he’ll love. You will also have that feelgood factor from knowing that you’ve chosen a planet-friendly gift from an organisation with an ethical and sustainable mission… Yay!!

“What about the wrapping though?” I hear you say… well why not try wrapping with furoshiki, reusable fabric gift wrap? Our zero-waste gift wrap can be used over and over again, meaning that you won’t be sending more paper and tape to landfill. It’s also awesome at wrapping awkward shapes…

You can check out our full range of patterns and sizes on the Furoshiki Wrap Company website.

We have lots of furoshiki wrapping guides on our social media channels, the links are at the bottom of the page. Happy wrapping! 

Atlantic Spirit Gin

Our micro-distillery is based in Bideford, North Devon, one of only 3 AONB areas in the UK and a few minutes’ walk away from the South-West Coast Path. 

We are passionate about our coastline, discovering new distinctive flavours and botanicals, which we enjoy foraging for locally along the coast.

Our award-winning gins are distilled by Quinton, using traditional gin-basket infusion in Copper-Pot Alembic stills, creating pure delicate flavours which are uniquely clean and soft. 

Every bottle is part of a small batch production of 120-240 bottles, ensuring we deliver a truly hand-crafted gin. We have 7 flavours. No.7 is our Special Edition, which changes with the season and is micro-batch.

It’s all about the flavour..
