When it comes to choosing eco-friendly 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: long lasting or high quality (so they won’t break or end up in a landfill anytime soon) eco-friendly, non-toxic, or ethically made.
If you can’t find something to wrap up to suit him, scroll down for a list of great experience gift ideas for men.

This razor is designed to last a lifetime. It works as well – maybe better – than your typical triple blade razor, and the pivoting head design makes for an extremely smooth shave.
You can feel the quality in the weight of the razor. The blades are easy to change and they are recyclable (carefully though). Ethically made, the razor is also recyclable. We’ve used one for about three years and counting, and it’s showing no sign of needing replacement anytime soon.
Help him perfect the casual layered look.
This cozy hoodie is made from Mongolian cashmere. Quince’s quality cashmere is three times as warm as wool. It’s also sourced sustainably and ethically.

Many air fryers contain black plastic. Black plastic often comes from recycled electronic, which can contain toxic substances like the flame retardant bromine; antimony; and heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and mercury.

Fishing is the ultimate mindfulness hobby with the added benefit of time spent in nature.

EXPERIENCE GIFTS FOR MEN
Experience gifts are especially popular and many of them make great eco-friendly gifts for him. 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.)
