Last Minute Gifts for the Eco-Friendly Dad
Have you ever found yourself rushing to the supermarket to find a last minute gift for Father’s Day or a Father’s Day gift for Grandad? Only to find the usual deodorant/shower gel combo pack, or the old faithful slippers and socks set? As much as we love our dads, busy lives mean that sometimes it's difficult to find the time to spend searching for Father’s Day present that fits their personality. Additionally, dads can be so difficult to choose a gift for due to the lack of range available for men, which isn’t ideal when you’re pushed for time. Even more so if you’re making the change to a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Often the things that are available last minute aren’t eco or budget friendly!
Special occasions are also a time when waste increases due to packaging materials and cards. With only a few days to go until Father’s Day 2022, we thought we’d create a guide to show how we can help with any last minute panic, without compromising your eco-friendly values.

At the end of the post you can find a link to a free, personalisable Father’s Day eCard, which helps to cut down on paper waste!

Last, but not least, is our foodie Dad! If your Dad is a Gordon Ramsey fan, or a baking master, like Yorkshire’s own James Martin, we have everything you need to give him a foodie gift fit for a pro-chef. We recommend Charlie and Ivy’s Bread Dipper gift set (£12), and the Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil Gift Box, which contains a Honey and Mustard Dressing to die for!

If your Dad is a BBQ king, you can make your own BBQ rub gift set from the herbs and spices we have in stock. Some recipes require lots of different spices, which can get expensive when experimenting with new recipes. As all of our herbs and spices are weighed exactly to your needs, find a recipe and ask us to mix the required amounts together in one bag. This will give a variety of BBQ rubs, ready to go, without spending a fortune! Keeping dad happy at the BBQ for the summer season!Free Father’s Day eCard
