I’m back with the third in my series of four ethical Christmas gift guides, this time with one with a more manly focus (although there are a few things on this list that I’d actually quite like myself – hello ghillie kettle and nice whisky, but I might pass on the beard oil, thank you!). Where possible I’ve tried to sought ethical Christmas items out from independent stores rather than big chains, and as always I’ve kept things purse friendly – there’s nothing on here over £45, with items starting from just £8.
Ethical Christmas Gift Ideas for Men
1) Mighty Wallet (£14.99) – made of recyclable material and rather stylish to boot. They come in heaps of different designs/patterns but I’m really quite taken with the map design.
2) Ghillie Kettle from Nordic Outdoor (£45.95) – spend a lot of time at the allotment, or camping? This Ghille Kettle would be the dream then! It’s certainly a dream of mine!
3) Klean Kanteen Water Bottle (£22) – I’ve tried a lot of water bottles out and this is my favourite. BPA free, plastic free, paint free, it’s just made from stainless steel, food grade silicone and bamboo and is incredibly durable.
4) Norwegian Wood by Lars Mytting (£13.58) – so, I must be on to something with this as I made a note to feature this book in this guide as it sounded pretty interesting, then the other night my partner mentioned that he’d been reading about this book and it sounded good! So if you buy this international bestseller and get brownie points then you can thank me later!
5) Sore Muscle Salve (£14) – this warming muscle rub for runners, walkers, riders and more, sounds pretty divine. It’s made with tobacco infused oil for relieving muscle cramps and spasms and cayenne which brings the heat, making muscles more pliable and easing aches.
8) Leather iPad Cover (£38.54) – I love the old school style of this iPad case.
9) Benromach Organic Whisky (£44) – Benromach is pretty good whisky and I believe this is the first Soil Association certified organic whisky.
10) DIY Ukelele Kit (£37.50) – is he musical? Likes building things? Then this would be the perfect gift!
11) Beard Oil (£9.95) – for any bearded chaps out there!
12) Booze For Free by Andy Hamilton (£8.08) – my partner has this book and it’s a definitely a firm favourite. Andy really knows his stuff and his recipes (over 100 of them!) are easy to follow.
One last guide to follow very shortly for kids, then I’m done!
