24 Sustainable & Considered Christmas Gifts for Men
We’ve curated some of our favourite conscious gifts for the men in your life – Fathers, husbands, friends and brothers! Whether your guy is already into eco or needs a little help discovering some wonderful new sustainable labels – we are sure you will find something they will love in this guide!
Our go-to when it comes to buying for the men in our life – every Haeckels product we have gifted has been loved by our Fathers, husbands, and brothers! Their line of skincare, bodycare and natural lifestyle is sourced and created on the coast line of England’s Margate with seaweed as the hero ingredient. A pioneer in the industry for sustainable innovation, Haeckels have developed biocontributing packaging which means not only does their packaging not harm the planet, but it contributes to our planet’s biosphere.
Natural plant incense and ceramic accessories made in England, UME will encourage the men in your life to engage in the wonderful relaxing ritual of incense burning. Pair the uplifting scent of their Dawn incense with the raw black stoneware incense bowl which is on Cora’s husband’s Christmas wish list this year!
Riley Studio are on a mission to change mindsets and make conscious consumerism the norm with their gender-neutral staples that are kind on the planet. Crafted from a selection of recycled and natural materials, these pieces are designed to last a lifetime, not just a season!
Produced in the UK, Feldspar Studio create timeless pieces for home that are made to last lifetimes. They make all their items out of fine bone china, which is the strongest type of ceramic, in a family run pottery factory in Stoke on Trent. All of their pieces make wonderful gift for anyone, as their simplicity means they can fit into any style of home! Pair their espresso mug with an organic coffee for the coffee lover’s perfect gift!
A great gift for the men in your life who enjoy a little self care…or to encourage those you think need to start! Cosmydor’s beautiful skincare line is made from natural and certified organic ingredients, with no chemicals whatsoever. Scents and textures come solely from the active natural ingredients used in the formulas. These two multi-purpose products from them are perfect for guys who don’t like to have lots of products on the go!
ST. ROSE Artisanal Fine Fragrances
ST. ROSE’s beautiful fragrances are handcrafted with the highest-quality and responsibly sourced ingredients that are good for you and good for the Earth. Their scents are made from ethically sourced botanical materials from plants and flowers that are completely safe to use on the skin. For the men in your life, we recommend the Vigilante Eau de Parfum which has top notes of bergamot and cypress, with a base of sandalwood and upcycled Cedarwood.
This one is for the guys in your life who are still not refilling! For every bottle sold, Ocean Bottle fund the collection of 11.4kg of plastic, equivalent to 1000 plastic bottles whilst investing in people-powered waste management. Plastic waste is collected by locals in coastal communities who can exchange plastic waste for money, healthcare, tech products, school tuition and micro-finance at their local Plastic Bank. These bottles will keep cold drinks cold for 18 hours and hot for 9 – making them perfect for takeaway coffees and juices too.
Through their beautiful and ethically handmade designs, Paradise Row are passionate about cherishing East London’s heritage and talent, with each piece lovingly handmade in the city. Just added to our collection from the label are some new home accessories which we think make the perfect gift for a man who is house proud!
Another one of our favourite lines for men’s grooming products, Clockface believe that nature provides all the power and potency we need to look and feel our best. Their all-natural organic skincare is 100% plant based and nature-derived, sourced ethically and responsibly, and clearly labelled. Their Recovery Body Oil is especially great for guys who love to exercise, designed to deliver natural healing and conditioning for tired, stressed bodies and minds.
MAYDI’s collection of conscious knitwear is handmade to order from the finest natural materials. Their sustainable, traditionally crafted throws make the most beautiful addition to a home. Partnering with Wildlife Conservation Society-Argentina and the Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network, each MAYDI piece is carefully made by hand using processes that respect both workers and the environment.
Candles and room diffusers are always a great gift. However, that shouldn’t mean you’re exposing your family and friends to toxic chemicals. Eym Natural’s collection of home fragrances are all completely natural and non-toxic with no nasty booster chemicals added. Eym are proud to say that additionally all their ingredients and packaging are ethically and sustainably sourced and always British made.
Complete Unity Yoga
Sadly most yoga mats and accessories are made from synthetic materials that when discarded will pollute landfills for years to come. Luckily we have an eco alternative courtesy of Complete Unity Yoga! These natural yoga mats are made from biodegradable rubber and jute and come in a range of earthy colours to suit all your gifting needs, for both men and women!
Barrio Santo's Eco Activewear
As we don’t currently stock sustainable activewear for men (watch this space!) we wanted to give a special mention to one of our favourite labels for men’s activewear – Barrio Santo.
This line comprises mainly of organic cotton fabric and they make a point to ensure all other materials used are recycled, recyclable or compostable. Each Barrio Santo piece is made ethically in Portugal from start to finish and all suppliers are GOTS certified and adhere to the highest sustainability regulations.
Pair some of their eco activewear with a natural yoga mat ‘the guy who’s into fitness’ perfect Christmas gift! Shop their men’s collection here.
