Father’s Day is just around the corner—here are some great natural and organic gift ideas for the dad (or dads!) in your life. —Aleigh
Edwin Jagger Razor, $36
It’s sleek, works with disposable cartridges (generating less waste than buying full disposable razors), and has a balanced handle for a luxurious shave. Way better than the electric versions that collect dust on the shelf…
Code SC Shaving Kit, on sale for $39.95
This kit includes a pre-shave oil made with organic grapeseed, jojoba, and arnica oils (such a great idea to soften and protect your skin), shaving cream in a non-aerosol can, and a post-shave balm with sage, avocado, and mint.
Zum Bar in Cedar, $5.75
My husband uses a lot of soap—but he’s not one to splurge on anything special. The soaps from Zum Bar aren’t girly or frilly, and a scent like cedar will make him feel like a lumberjack. Bonus points if it makes him want to go out and do some yard work!
Using shampoo as shower gel, and vice versa? We know they do it. But if you give the dad in your life this combo shampoo and shower gel, it’s totally acceptable for him to be a one-product kind of guy.
Now that I’m a lot more sensitive to perfume, I’m also a lot more sensitive to men’s cologne. Which means I’m a huge fan of buying Dad a natural or organic version. It’s a win-win.
Sure, it’s not a cosmetics product, but home brewing is all the rage these days—get your dad in on the action with this kit, which comes with organic ingredients from Seven Bridges Cooperative.
My friend Lindsay makes AMAZING all natural soy candles, which come in eco-friendly packaging. The scents, from essential oils, will pleasantly fill up a room. This gift set includes six soy candles in glass containers, in manly scents including Fresh Cut Grass, Campfire, Hunting Lodge, Oakmoss, Cedar, and Mountain Lake. (Bonus: once you’ve burned the candles, keep the glass tumblers.)
Dads’ lips need moisturizing, too. Get him one of these yummy (and clear) lip balms from Una Biologicals so that he’ll stop trying to steal yours when his lips are dry. Or, better yet, buy him a handful, so he can keep one at work, one at home, and one in his pocket at all times.
