As our work has shown us over the past few years, fathers are just as enthusiastic about our cause and our impact as mothers are, and our children and world are all the better for their passion.
As we celebrate all the amazing ways fathers make our lives more fulfilling this month, we've rounded up some fantastic gifts for these thoughtful Dads. Every one of these products has some sort of positive impact on the world, making them a perfect choice for fathers who care deeply about the world they are leaving to their children. 16 seriously cool gift ideas below.
