Sustainable Sportswear Gift Ideas for Father's Day

Father's day (en), Isänpäivä (fi), Fars dag (se), Isadepäev (ee) is celebrated this year in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Estonia 11th November 2018. 

A sporty daddy could be surprised by a new PFC free outdoor jacket, 100 % merino wool beanie or a Keli Clothing underlayer which is Made in Finland from 100 % Mulesing free Merino Wool. 

What am I thinking of getting for my dad?

My dad is my hero. He turned 70 years last year but he is probably in better shape than I am. He loves to cross-country ski and spends a lot of time outdoors. That's probably where my own passion for different sports has also picked up. 

For him, I was thinking about getting a nice underlayer shirt. We just received these to Weekendbee from our Swedish outdoor brand Klättermusen. The eco-friendly materials are great.  Eir Forest Long Sleeve is made of  20 % silk + 80 % merino wool shirt. I think that's a multipurpose shirt that he could use when he goes skiing or just shoveling snow outside. There are also 2 colors to choose from.



The other possibility I was thinking about would be to get the Made in Finland 100 % merino wool long sleeve shirt made by Keli Clothing. This product is a multi-use especially for cold winter conditions which could be very useful. Originally designed for winter cycling it is a multi-use shirt and could be a good match for his sweaty winter sports.

My dad could also use a nice warm fleece made from wool when he is coming out to the cold from sweaty indoor sports. I was thinking Balder Zip Storm Blue one from Klättermusen. The fabric in this sweater is almost 50 % recycled wool so this one could be warm enough for the Finnish winter. Size is easy for him, but we at Weekendbee do have a 60 day returns policy in case it is a wrong size.

One more idea I had was a new beanie from Costo, since he could really use one. Beanie is 100% merino wool so it would be warm enough and it´s an easy choice since they are one-size-fits-all-dads. The only decision is to pick a color!

Well, there were a couple of thoughts for my dad. Hope you can find some from our Weekendbee collection to a dad close to you. Since all of our products are from sustainable sportswear brands you really can't go wrong. 

In case you can't decide - we just added a possibility to buy Gift cards to our webstore. They are listed also in the collection.

We deliver to Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland in a couple of days, so you can still make it! :)

Happy father's day to all daddies out there - especially my own!
