Father's Day is right around the corner — Sunday, Jun. 17 — and while you're probably tempted to get your dad any hat or tie you can find for sale on the internet, consider this: get him a gift that gives back. If the majority of your attempts at gifting your dad end up stored and dusty in his closet anyway, spend your money on something that helps someone else, too. Here I've put together a list of Father's Day gift ideas that give back. Not only will you feel good about doing something charitable, but your dad will be greatly impressed with your maturity and philanthropical intentions. Not to mention, there are so many incredible, international, handcrafted, and artisanal gifts that give back.
You don't have to get your dad some ridiculous wildlife t-shirt with a jungle animal on it that he'll never wear, just to get involved in charity. I've chosen some of the most gorgeous, thoughtful and impressive gifts with charitable ties that your dad will love, and that the world will appreciate — #charitabletiesnotdadties. Every dollar helps and Father's Day is a great time to chime in for change.
