Ditch the boring sock gifts and get these unique and environmentally friendly gifts that he’ll actually want to use!
Men, in general, are hard to shop for. Men who actually care about the environment are even more difficult.
According to MallOfMadness.com, men typically like getting gifts that they can use, collect or eat. Tools, novelty items and unique foods are the top three genres that men appreciate the most.
Simple enough, right? Now all you have to do is find eco-friendly versions of those items, and you have a winner!
Luckily, a lot of “manly” products are made of eco-friendly material, such as: stainless steel, wood, glass, copper, ceramic, titanium, and silicone. All of these elements are either recyclable, sustainable, biodegradable, or zero waste—and they all outlast plastic!
Many tools and grooming kits, for example, are made of stainless steel, titanium and bamboo. Drinkware, or “beer gear”, also incorporates a lot of stainless steel, as well as glass.
You can also opt for novelty items like ceramic mugs, statues or figurines; or reusable straw kits made of stainless steel, glass or silicone.
So as you can see, shopping for environmentally friendly gifts doesn’t have to be difficult. There are actually a ton of items to pick from.
Below are a few great eco-friendly gift ideas to inspire you in your search for the perfect gift.
