Father’s Day is almost here and we know that sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect gift for your dad — or grandfather, husband, or paternal figure in your life. One great way to show how much you care is to give a gift that comes with purpose, perhaps something that helps make a positive contribution to your community, benefits an important cause, or supports women- and minority-owned small businesses. Here are a few ideas:
Gifts That Give Back
A great place to start on the search for a gift that gives back is Packed With Purpose. They offer a wide range of personalized products and support a variety of socially conscious causes, including environmental preservation, workplace support for those facing barriers to employment, youth development, and wellness. Take a look at their Father’s Day suggestionshere.
Also, many charitable organizations sell gifts and merchandise that benefit their cause, likeUNICEF,Save the Children, theAmerican Cancer Society, andamFAR.
Show Him You’ve Got His Back(pack)
Summer’s here and hopefully Dad will be enjoying the great outdoors. Perhaps a family hike or camping trip is on the horizon? Get him a durable, versatile backpack from Cotopaxi that comes with aworthwhile mission. The company donates 1% of their revenue toward addressing poverty and supporting community development. On top of that, they make sure that all their gear is produced under fair, sustainable working conditions. They offer a selection of backpacks and gear for hikes, day trips, camping adventures, etc. (They’ve got fanny packs, too, for those of you who don’t mind getting a little embarrassed by Dad!)

Make a Spectacle Over Father’s Day
Summer also means lots of sunshine, so why not get Dad a new pair of sunglasses that are both fashion forwardand do good? Warby Parker is an incredible company thatdonates a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair they sell. In emerging communities, the benefit of improved eyesight can make a world of difference in people’s lives.
