While life may still be hectic, it’s important to take some time to show our appreciation and love for others, including our Dad’s and any other amazing role models we have. With Father’s Day quickly approaching, we’ve curated this list of 10 sustainable, organic or black-owned brands that he can use and enjoy from now on. Read on to view our top Father’s Day gift ideas:
Blk & Bold is a black-owned beverage shop offering micro-roasted coffee and loose-leaf specialty teas. While their Father’s Day gift basket is currently sold out, you can still curate a bundle your Dad will love. Shop light or dark roast coffees, or an exotic variety of teas. The company even donates 5% of profits to organizations that support at-risk youth, so you’re paying it forward with every purchase.
If your Dad is a granola connoisseur like mine is, check out Oh-mazing’s line of snackable granolas. These little pouches are perfect for a mid-afternoon snack or extra fuel during a day hike. Their online shop even has a sampler pack, so your Dad can try them all and find his favorite!
This small, family company based in Phoenix, AZ makes some flavorful a** kickin hot sauces. Try some of their unique flavors like blackberry rum sauce or prickly pear sweet & spicy hot sauce. The online shop also offers sampler packs and build your own 3 packs, so you can order a variety of sauces to enjoy!
Our Grüvi IPA is not only a refreshing and hoppy beer, it also works as an ideal post workout drink. Without alcohol, beer isn’t dehydrating, and the hops + wheat contain electrolytes to help replenish your body. And with fewer calories, these brews won’t interfere with any gains.
Livwell’s line of plant-based protein is a great alternative to other highly processed or dairy based powders. With unique flavors like raw cacao and coconut, your Dad will be getting all the energy and flavor he needs. All products are also organic and free from gluten, dairy and soy. Livwell’s site also includes several recipes to showcase using the protein beyond just shakes.
The Hidrate Spark is a water bottle unlike any other. Utilizing sensors and Bluetooth that connects to their app, your Dad can calculate how much water intake he specifically needs, and to keep track of water consumed. Oh, and it has an LED stick that glows to remind you to drink some H20. Cheesy? Maybe. Does it look cool? Absolutely.
