They focus on using 100% GOTS certified organic cotton that is gleaned in fair trade and by high ethical standards. Organic and sustainable farming is important to them, and they love doing so in a way that makes people smile. Which is exactly what these hilarious and downright adorable t-shirt sets do. The Spunky Stork has hundreds of funny designs screen printed on baby onesies as well as as toddler/youth/adult t shirts that allow daddy and his minis to match in the cutest way ever. The stuff memorable pictures are made of, these shirts carry a glee guarantee for satisfaction.
Another rad dad idea using photos (because dads are big softies) is creating Fracture Photo Tiles. Pries range from $17-$135, and they let dad have something better than a few digital images on his phone to have hanging in his office, man cave or anywhere in the house. With Fracture, you can choose a favorite photo sure to make dad smile, and then have it come to life with the print on vibrant durable glass. Fracture believes in treading lightly on our planet, and they are committed to being a carbon-neutral company. The photo tiles are gorgeous and the corporate belief system dad (and you) will be 100% behind.
If you’d like your littles to be more involved with the photo creation once it’s done, then these custom Magna-Tiles are going to be hits. You can take your own family photos and put them on the Magna-Tiles we all love so much using CreateOn. You can take the best of all your pictures with the favorite dads in your life and place them on the tiles. You can choose from 8-32 image tiles, and all the tiles are compatible with other Magna-Tiles sets. Not only are these personalized tiles a unique and one-of-a kind gift, they’re a great way for your littles and dad to bond and play in a fabulous STEM activity constructing patterns and developing fine motor skills and coordination.
And if you still want to use pictures but prefer a more digital platform, no worries. VidDay has you covered. They’re a team of awesome people who want to be a positive force in the world.

If you want to make the special dads in your life something they’ll have to remember forever, VidDay is there to help you do so with joy.
We always love finding cool people as we come across cool products, and that’s just what happened when we stumbled across Lee Ann Hopkins. A former clergywoman and attorney who wanted to make soap and change the world, she says she went, “from one bar to another.” Her mission with Do Good Soaps and Suds is two-fold, helping people on their journeys to zero-waste and healthy lives, as well as clean up the earth one plastic/soap/lotion/balm/bar at a time. Do Good Soaps and Suds have hand-crafted solid soaps, shampoos and lotions all made in small batches from ethically-sourced, vegan and plastic-free materials. Each package has a personal note from Lee Ann, and a portion of every purchase goes to support the Plastic Pollution Coalition and the Jane Goodall Institute.
There are tons of options dad will love, but we particularly love The Brew Bar as it’s a heavenly scent of lavender, rosemary, lemon and peppermint made with a craft beer from Alexandria, Virginia. Like Lee Ann says, “Use Less Sh*t, Do More Good,” and we agree.
We love companies committed to making the world a better place, and that’s where Polywood does an excellent job. Using materials bound for landfills (plastic containers), this eco-friendly company makes gorgeous outdoor furniture and accessories that will last for generations. They started the company on the idea that some recyclables didn’t have legit places to go, and created masterpieces. They’re 100% made in America from plastic containers that were once on their way to the landfill, and they all have a 20-year warranty because of the quality in manufacturing. Polywood is committed to making America beautiful and with this Adirondack chair, the dads in your life will be doing that while they relax too.
Is dad an aviation nut? Then he’s going to love all the finds from PlaneForm. This small business is veteran-owned and makes some pretty incredible stuff for the aviation fan. Whether it’s bottle openers, wall art or even etched items, PlaneForm uses the highest quality materials. We think these patterned Leather coasters are pretty cool, and you can choose from different patterns if you like. They’re precisely etched with detailed aircraft silhouettes and they come in a matching holder. Dad will be thrilled every time he sets a drink down.
There aren’t enough happy-face emojis we could assign to the mission behind this company. Hippy Feet is a Minneapolis-based Benefit Corporation dedicated to supporting the homeless. They provide transitional employment to young people between the ages of 16-24 who experience homelessness in the making of their incredibly awesome socks. Every product purchased means you’re helping them help young people build new lives, and so in a sense, you’re parenting young people with each purchase. Hippy Feet doesn’t look to be a forever employer to young people, but to give them some incoming, opportunity and job training that will help them experience the basics of human dignity and move into stable housing and full-time employment. All socks and apparel items are made in the U.S. with environmentally friendly materials and practices, and they’ve already been able to add over 1,600 hours of employment for young adults in Minneapolis, Chicago and Duluth. Each pair you buy comes in a package signed by the young person experiencing homelessness who helped, and that means the special dads in your life will get an eco-friendly product with an incredible story.
We spend so much of our time in our bedrooms, and it’s incredibly important that what we sleep on is clean and protective of our best health. That’s why we think the dads in your life will flipover ultra-soft eco-friedly sheets that are made from organic eucalyptus. Founded just a few years ago by Elle Liu who was in search of natural bedding for her own sensitive skin, she created these natural and eco-friendly alternatives to cotton.
They’re just right for the hotter summer months, and they prevent the growth of unwanted bacteria (eww) when sleeping. Even better, they’re currently matching all purchases with donations to Global Giving’s COVID Relief Fund so buying for dad helps the world. Just be warned, dad may not want to leave the comfy cozy bed.
And since it’s not only important to have health-building sheets, but cleaner air for you as you breathe in overnight (or any place in your house), you may want to consider a TruSens Air Purifier for dad. Consider it a joint gift, if you will, as it will keep your whole family healthier, cleaner and fresher. It helps get rid of dander and dust, which means your allergies and irritations go bye-bye also. TruSens Air Purifiers clean the entire room, not just near the purifier. A remote SensorPod is always gathering info about the air quality in your room and the air purifier adapts its fan speed to clean all the air. Truly a gift that keeps giving.

AncestryHealth Core and Ancestry DNA + Traits also make great gifts for all the dads in your life too.
Natural-minded dads will love a new sustainable pillow that is perfect for any sleep position they have. Zoey Sleep is leading the wellness revolution starting with an important facet: sleep. The Classic Pillow shows love to Mother Earth as it is made with Lyocell fibers. These are made from sustainable woods like oak, Birchwood and eucalyptus which help the fabric breathe and still be gentle. Shut-eye is important for your back and for your immune system, so the right pillow can make all the difference.
Want to get dad a lightweight, wrinkle-free shirt that goes for days and days before needing a wash and is super eco-friendly compared to conventional cotton tees? Then Unbound Merino is the way to go. Merino wool regulates dad’s temperature, dries fast and doesn’t wrinkle, but it also doesn’t need washing for 40 days or more of wear. Seriously. They’re the perfect shirts for busy dads, and especially ones who want eco-friendly alternatives to conventional clothing.
Look, let’s not beat around the tush. We mean bush. Get every dad you know a Tushy bidet attachment. They’re saving the world from deforestation one butt at a time. They help us use less toilet paper (which, ahem, we’ve found can be an issue) and there really is nothing like a clean bum. Seriously consider it a gift for the whole family, but tell dad it’s his butt you’re looking to pamper. Whatever you do, just get it.
Be sure you read that correctly–Tarpestry, not tapestry. That said, Tarpestry is the perfect mix of beautiful tapestry combined with a tarp bottom to give all the dads you know a blanket that is perfect for backyard campouts, movie nights, forts in the living room, picnics and more. Created to help families live better outdoor lives with eco-friendly practices in mind, Tarpestry is committed to incorporating sustainable components in all aspects of business and the founders’ lives, including local manufacturing in beautiful Boone, North Carolina. They utilize biodegradable and recyclable packaging and shipping materials as well as incorporating vegetable dyes in their Classic Tarpestry process. They also recycle Tarpestries in a process they call Tarpestry-Cycle! Dad will love the UV-blocking and water-repellant surface for camping, working or playing at home. There’s a velcro pocket for easy storage and four grommets for hanging or staking. Dad’ll love it, but you’ll love all the uses. And, it’s on sale for 15% off for Father’s Day!
The reality is that most of us don’t have the best posture. And since we have been sitting more lately, we need to address posture as it can be the root cause of many debilitating conditions as you get older. Alignmed is an evidence-based product that’s gone through nine clinical trials to show the difference it can make in your posture and overall health. It’s a non-pharmaceutical way to help beat back pain and damage from our poor posture and it’s not just a thing that great athletes like Peyton Manning wears (though he did). It’s a wearable piece that dad will appreciate for a million different reasons.
Sometimes finding the right gift for dad is near impossible but with this huge list of awesome products from incredible companies? You’ll find the best Father’s Day gifts a breeze.
