When it comes to choosing green gifts for the men in your life, we are constantly paying attention for gifts that go beyond the conventional dad stereotypes.
We hope to provide a good balance of gifts that are extremely and a few splurges. The best advice when it comes to gift giving is to find something you know they’ll USE.
Here’s our selection of green gifts for him that fall into one or more of the following categories: eco-friendly, non-toxic, ethically made, experience gifts, or high quality and long lasting so they won’t break and end up in a landfill anytime soon.

EXPERIENCE GIFTS FOR MEN
Experience gifts are especially popular with men. Think about what he enjoys most and see how you can surprise him with that or one of the following ideas.
Sports – Get him tickets to watch his favorite team or help him get further toward his goal of visiting all the major league ball parks. What about golf lessons or a trip to a PGA event?
Outdoor activities – Whitewater rafting, fly fishing, skiing, rock climbing… whether extreme sports or extremely relaxing, there’s probably an activity he will love.
Hire a helper – Moms aren’t the only ones with full schedules. No matter what he needs help with, there’s a personal assistant, errand runner, organizing specialist, etc. available to help.
Music – Will his favorite band be near you soon? Consider getting tickets and a night out or a weekend away if the concert is out of town. Has he always wanted to learn to play an instrument? Get him a gift certificate for lessons.
Daredevil for a day – Skydiving, a race car experience, or pilot for a day are some exciting options for your thrill seeking man. (You might consider a few carbon credits to offset this gift.)
