Whomever the men are in your life, the holidays are a great time to get them a little extra something special to show how much you care. Getting them products that are good for them and the environment also shows that you care about their health too! Men can sometimes be a little difficult to shop for, especially if you ask what they’d like and they don’t have any suggestions to give. I’ve been stonewalled on more than a few occasions when looking for gift suggestions. Well, you can skip the hemming and hawing after such a question because we’ve done the work for you. Any one of these gifts would be received with open, and grateful, arms. Here are some great picks for this holiday season for the natural and eco-friendly gentlemen in your life.

 

Cotton Jersey Robe

It’s a known fact that men love to have their comfort level at an all time high as much as possible. Their favorite kind of t-shirt has been translated into a soft and comfy robe perfect for lounging around the house during the holidays. The cotton is super-soft and 100% organic, plus it comes in three beautiful colors. [Available from Coyuchi, $75]

 

RAW Skincare Method Kit

Granted not all men like to pamper their faces, but for those that do the RAW method is top notch. Made and derived from all natural and organic ingredients, the RAW skincare line is designed specifically for men’s skin. This kit contains a blue agave wash, toner, and day cream to keep his face refreshed and hydrated all day long. [Available from RAW, $80]

 

Wood iPod/iPhone Charger

Since we all have gadgets that need charging, it’s nice to have a charging dock that can also double as a piece of decoration. A wooden charging dock, made from a reclaimed wine barrel, would be a great addition to any rustic decor. [Available on Etsy from Swedish Guy Design, $65]

 

Beer Home Brewing Classes and Kits

If the man, or men, in your life love a good pint of beer then why not give them the gift of knowledge in making their own specialty brew! You can take online classes or find a local brew class in your area. To supplement the classes, you can also get a kit to get him started creating custom beer at home. [Kits available from Mr. Beer, prices start at $39.95]

 

Wooden Watch

This wooden timepiece would be a unique and unexpected gift under the tree this year. Made from natural wood that’s free of toxic chemicals, this watch is a dynamic piece for everyday wear. Another great aspect of this gift is that for each watch purchased, a tree will be planted! [Available from weWOOD, $119.00]

 

Bacon of the Month Club

Bacon seems to be everywhere. From specialty restaurants to even bakeries, everyone is hopping on the bacon wagon.  For the meat eater in your life, a bacon of the month club is a great way to give a gift that keeps on giving. The Pig Next Door offers an Heirloom Bacon package that provides meat that is raised humanely and sustainably on small farms. It’s a great way to try new types of bacon that wouldn’t normally be available in your local grocery store, and it arrives at your door step every month! [Available from The Pig Next Door, heirloom package starts at $149]

 

PACT Organic Underwear

Some men don’t really appreciate underwear for the holidays, but for those that do you can’t go wrong with a great pair from PACT. They come in a great variety of designs, styles, and colors to suit any taste. They’re made with 95% organic cotton and are ethically manufactured in Turkey. [Available from PACT, $24 for boxer briefs]

 

Tyvek Wallet

This airmail tyvek wallet is sturdy, thin, and 100% recyclable. The sturdiness makes them last and last and can withstand day to day wear and tear. Another great aspect is that they’re customizable with a sharpie or other permanent marker! [Available from Celery Street, $14.99]

 

Herban Cowboy Cologne

HerbanCologne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the all-natural fella in your life who loves to smell great, there is a fantastic cologne made just for him. Herban Cowboy offers a certified organic and vegan cologne for men. Notes of sandalwood make this a perfectly musky and masculine fragrance for everyday wear. The packaging is also printed with soy ink and is biodegradable and recyclable. [Available from Vegan Essentials, $27.95]

 

GiveNow Card

just give

 

 

Some of us have those certain people in our lives that seemingly have everything that they could want. They don’t want to be given things that they don’t need or desire, so how do you shop for them? One of my favorite holiday traditions is giving a GiveNow card. The recipient will receive an amount, that you gift, that they can then use to donate to one of their favorite charities. Just Give works in conjunction with the Redefine Christmas movement to make all types of giving important this season. [Available through Just Give, gift card values vary]

    Another feel good gift, is a TickleMe Plant because he can actually feel or tickle this plant and it will close its leaves and lower its branches. Its the only plant I know of that you can give as a gift that reacts to affection. Search TickleMe Plant to give the Greenhouse kit as a feel good gift.
