The male-identified Dad in your life – whether partner, chosen Dad, or biological life-giver – deserves a thoughtful gift this year that doesn’t pigeonhole his interests. But let’s steer clear of gender specific bull like golf clubs and beard trimmers, unless that’s really their thing, and focus on treating them to something beautiful that makes them feel good. Why do we give Moms flowers on Mother’s Day and Father’s get tie clips? It doesn’t make any sense. If the point is to show them they are appreciated and better their day, then why not focus on wellness items and things of beauty? To that end, our GirIieGirlArmy’s Ultimate Non-Binary Father’s Day Gift Guide 2017 follows;

Brainy Papa Smurf  will love a kit of Moon Dust’s Brain Dust®, an enlightening blend of adaptogenic superherbs and supermushrooms that help combat the effects of stress to “align him with the cosmic flow for great achievement.” It comes with Deep Chocolate Protein raw protein powder, whole grain brown rice sprouted for bio-activity and availability, producing 20g of easily assimilated protein. A beautiful combo of healthful life-giving powders to better his life.

Khadi is that cloth which is both hand-spun and hand-woven. It is made by hand spinning of raw cotton into yarn using implements like the Charkha and then weaving the final fabric with a hand-operated loom. It can be worn in all seasons, as it comes in various densities. Fine variety of khadi keeps the wearer cool in summer and coarse will keep him warm in winter. Bunosilo’s khadi classic shirt is so elegant, and comes in some really great colorways.  This one is only $27, and handmade by a conscious company in India.

Go outside the box and take Dad to rescue a pet at your local shelter, and offer to gift him a year of medical, or a great pet bed once he does. This, only and obviously if he’d been discussing adopting or loves animals and has the time in his home and heart to adopt. Obviously, never spring a pet on a person! But give him a card that says “Today we are going to our local shelter to adopt you a forever friend!” He can always say no, and you can go volunteer at the shelter instead! What a beautiful give-back gift!

Woven by hand on a traditional loom, this traditional kente cloth scarf is named Nhyira “blessings” in the Twi language of Ghana’s Akan people. Each strip of kente cloth requires considerable effort, and the looms are worked with both hands and feet. Each color has its own meanings in Asante culture. Black is strength, aging and spirituality, and white is purity. Rachel Armah presents a beautiful example of West African artistry with these consciously made summer scarves.
