10 Sustainable Gift Ideas for Father’s Day


From showing you how to tie the best fishing knot (or trying to, anyway) to carrying the gear and helping to set up your tent without asking, give back to your Dad this Father’s Day with some new gear for his upcoming summer adventures!

The 5th of September will be here before we know it, although you still have enough time to take a look at our Father’s Day gift ideas and have something sent directly to him or yourself before his big day of appreciation.

Here are our ten top Father’s Day gift ideas:

1. Portable Fire Pit, Grill & Ferro Rod Combo

Barbecue anywhere with this lightweight Fire Pit & Grill Combo that includes a Ferro Rod that lasts up to 20,000 strikes (items also available to be purchased individually here).

The fire pit is designed to use minimal fuel and leave a low or no trace. The fire pit and grill are both Stainless Steel, durable and 100% recyclable.

7. Cast Iron Hot Plate & Griddle

Cook straight on the camp fire or barbecue with this heavy duty hot plate that’s built to last a lifetime, if it’s not passed down to future generations, that’s not a problem as it’s 100% recyclable.

If cooking with fatty foods, turn the hot plate over and use the griddle.

8. Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Camping gets a whole lot easier with a Cast Iron Pot that can be hung above the flames of the camp fire on a tripod or placed right on the fire.

Just like the hot plate, quality Cast Iron cookware typically lasts for around 100 years, then it can be recycled into a new Steel based item.
