Whether your dad is a veteran vegan or in need of a little encouragement to be more cruelty-free, the following vegan-friendly Father’s Day gifts will make his (and your) day. You can even buy them all for around $200 and present them to him in a Father’s Day gift basket.
Merlot for Men Moisturizer SPF 15
Even if Dad spends much of his day indoors during the week, when he hits the golf course, beach, hiking trail, or backyard on the weekends, he needs a moisturizer with sun protection that is specially formulated for men. Brand new from Merlot, this cruelty-free men’s moisturizer is made with powerful grape seed antioxidants, cucumber and green tea extracts, and SPF 15 to ward off sunburn, aging related to the sun, and skin cancer. Dad can generously slather the non-oily formula on after shaving and showering. While you’re at it, consider some of the other Merlot products, such as the body butter and blemish/acne treatment.

The world’s most convenient reusable water bottle just got even more portable. Introducing the new BPA-free 0.4 liter “anti-bottle”, which comes in a two-pack, and can be folded up to fit in Dad’s pocket when he’s done hydrating. Available in white, purple, blue, or orange, these handy reusable water anti-bottles also come with clips that can be attached to hiking packs. (Vapur.com; $16)

Solar energy isn’t just for rooftops, the Casio G-Shock Solar Watch harnesses the power of the sun to give Dad a sports watch he’ll be proud to wear. Armed with a black nylon band, this watch is shock-resistant, water resistant, and rechargeable by solar panels on the watch face.

For the dad who knows yoga is good for both mind and body, this durable yoga mat is designed to last a lifetime while also helping Dad do his part in being eco-conscious. The Black Mat Pro is certified safe by OEKO-TEX, an environmental certification agency in Europe for the textile industry. If Dad happens to be on the tall side, opt for the 85-inch length. The mat’s non-slip, cushioned surface will make your dad go “ahhhhh” while he’s going “om”. (Manduka.com; $94)
