I love my mom, but truth is I’m daddy’s little girl. :-)
I’m always telling everyone how cool my dad is…He’s incredibly artistic, very intelligent, super fun & very loving. My “pops on the rocks” as I’ve nicknamed him, is a well rounded guy. With that in mind, I know there are so many directions I can go with my gift options. It's actually hard to just choose one!
Here are some great eco-gifts you might want to consider this Father’s Day (Sunday, June 21st). I came across them while I was reading an electronic (paperless - think saving trees) newsletter from Kiwi Magazine:
Athletic Dad - Give your golf-club swinging dad a new way to "hit the green" with 100% recycled Dixon Earth Golf Balls ($30). These new golf balls conform to USGA standards, and deliver the same distance and spin as traditional ones. The packaging and balls are made from 100% recycled materials. They’re the perfect gift for an eco-savvy Dad.
On the Run Dad – My father doesn’t have a cell phone (strange I know), but in this day & age, almost everyone’s dad has a smart phone or some other techy gadget (i.e. BlackBerry, iPod, or GPS). For a dad who’s always on the go running from meeting to meeting, why not buy him the Solio Hybrid 1000 Solio Charger ($80)? He can use this solar charger anywhere—just one hour in the sun will give him about 15 minutes talk time or 40 minutes of MP3 music.
Green Thumb Dad – Does your dad love to fiddle around in the yard and garden? Surprise him with Gardener’s Supply Company's Organic Tomato Success Kit ($70), which has everything he needs to grow his own organic crop. What sets this system apart from others is its self-watering capabilities—less work for Dad!
Show your father how much you love and appreciate him by giving him an eco-gift this year.
