He’ll love this warm, stylish trucker jacket. The outer fabric is organic cotton. The lining is 70% recycled polyester fleece/30% polyester fleece.

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 five years and counting, and it’s showing no sign of needing to be replaced anytime soon.

This Day in History Calendar

If he loves history – or wants to learn to love history – this plastic-free calendar makes a great gift. Each day shares a historically significant fact. The men in our lives save the important ones, pin them to a bulletin board, or share with someone they know who would find that day’s fact interesting. The backs also make great note-taking spots.

Printed on FSC certified paper, it has a cardboard easel backing which makes for a sturdy display on a desk. And it comes in a box with no plastic wrap.

If he’s a fan of grilling, a digital thermometer makes a great gift or stocking stuffer. We’ve had one of these for several years. It’s well made and we love that it’s waterproof for easy cleaning.

Stainless Steel Nontoxic Air Fryer

Many air fryers are made from 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.

Choosing a stainless steel option is much safer. This air fryer has a larger capacity and has a large door for easy use.

A reusable tumbler or water bottle is one of the most practical gifts you can give. Keep your recipient from drinking hot liquids from plastic, which can leach toxins into his beverage. This sturdy YETI mug keeps drinks hot or cold for hours.

Unlike traditional camp mugs, this double-wall vacuum-insulated body protects hands from hot or cold contents while keeping coffee, chili, oatmeal, etc. well-insulated. Plus it’s dishwasher safe and very durable.

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.)
