It is very likely that you will find the perfect ethical and more sustainable gift for your boyfriend, brother, father or grandpa from NAE or Watson & Wolfe. Both offering a collection of vegan leather products, you can find a variety of beautiful and elegant belts and wallets.
NAE, a vegan Portuguese brand, makes their products of natural residual materials such as cork, Piñatex (pineapple leather), recycled car tires and even airbags! Watson & Wolfe's vegan leather products are also incredible. For instance, the wallet is made from a renewable source - non-food grade corn and the inside layer is made of recycled plastic bottles! If you'd love to buy him both a wallet and a belt, the gift set from Watson & Wolfe is the way to go.
Giving him a watch for Christmas is not a bad idea either. Especially, when they are so elegant, stylish and made of vegan leather, just like the watches from the brand Votch.
If you'd like to buy a gift that is very useful and made of recycled material, what about this nice and simple laptop sleeve from Unbegan?
If you are looking for a gift for all the men with a beard, this is the way to go. A safety razor with reusable blades from Sup will make saying goodbye to single-use razors really easy. Also, this organic handmade shaving soap from Werfzeep is specially made for sensitive skin - and the avocado, castor and borage oils will make it nicely soft and supple. A fruity smell and itch-free face: the personal care products from Juuls Store are sulphate-free, useful and cruelty-free.
A tip: if you have quite a few men in your life that you want to buy a gift for, Lekker Company offers a package of 4 deodorants that are cruelty-free, vegan and natural - and the packaging is also completely plastic-free.
Do you remember the times when we were so disappointed when we found socks under the Christmas tree? Those days are over! The mountain or bike socks from Dedicated are made of GOTS and Fairtrade certified cotton. Such a useful gift that is not only cooler but also ethically made and more sustainable than just regular (and sometimes very boring) socks.
For boxers, you can go with the safe (and also organic) option from Honest Basics or the playful and colourful ones from Rich&Vibrant that are also made from organic cotton.
Moyu Notebooks offers a collection of notebooks that not only have a great design but they also protect the trees - these notebooks are erasable, made from water-repellent stone paper and as they do not require any wood or water, its production is more environmentally-friendly. A perfect gift for a man who loves being organized, writing down his ideas and to-do lists and plan ahead. An extra: for every notebook you purchase, a tree is planted in Kenya.
Is he a workout-lover? Does he get up early in the morning to go for a run or do yoga? Or did he give you quite a few hints that he is planning to be more active in 2021? Then these gifts are a great fit.
A sport shirt that is made of 100% recycled polyester and produced in a safe and fair environment from Pure Sportswear is a pure joy to wear. And if you add Honest Basics' jogging pants made of organic cotton or the pair from Iron Roots, made of hemp and organic cotton, he is ready for an outdoor workout!
If he prefers indoor workouts, don't forget about this Fittastic yoga mat that is made of natural rubber with a recycled microfiber top. A beautiful design, nonslip material and - they are not coloured but are digitally printed with water-based colours. And this yoga mat fits perfectly into this yoga bag made from recycled polyester. How wonderful?
For all the men who often travel or go on a hike, a backpack is a must. If he (or you) cares about the animals, make sure the backpack is vegan - just like these stylish Ucon Acrobatics backpacks.
If he is a vegan and loves to wear clothes that make it quite obvious, you should definitely check out the collection of T-shirts, sweaters and beanies from Oat Milk Club. From slogans like 'bee kind', 'killing nothing but time' 'make hummus not war' to 'not your mum, not your milk' - we are sure you'll find something that he will love.
If you are panicking and still not sure what he would like to find under the Christmas tree… no need to worry! There is still a way to make him happy - with a gift card for more sustainable, vegan & fair shopping.
We truly hope this gift guide served its purpose and you found the perfect vegan, ethical and a more sustainable gift for him. And we hope he will love it too!
