Sustainable gift guide for the men in your life
Having trouble finding responsible gifts for the men in your life? Worry not. Now that we launched our own marketplace, we didn't forget to include goods for men. Even if your boyfriend/parent/bro isn’t into sustainability yet, surprise him with the best (and most useful) gifts. These special objects will make your (male) loved ones fall for eco living.
1. For the hard worker
A Bananatex bag from Qwstion
We're happy to count some adventurous dudes in our life, the ones that will take you hiking on a Sunday. Qwstion was made for the people that are on the move. We picked a nice selection from their bags including this beautiful moss Daypack.
If you're into bags that carry computers, we also love the Zip pack in Bananatex, an innovative new material made from banana plants.
2. For the adventurous fashion victim
A lavender tracksuit from Lola Studio
These tracksuits are sustainable three ways: they are made from high end deadstock, they are fairly produced in Portugal and the dyes are from natural colors. We're obsessed with this Lavender shade that is 100% unisex.
3. For the party goer
A bottle of Genevan Lvx Gin
For the hedonists out there that enjoy a good cocktail, we can only recommend Lvx Gin
. Made locally with carefully selected ingredients, this bottle is the perfect addition to your special person's bar.
4. For the tech guy
A plant-based phone case from Swibio
Even the biggest tech lover would love a sustainable accessory. These cases from Swibio
are made from leftover parts of sugar cane. It contains no pollutants and is made fairly in Switzerland. Different colours are available with each phone size.
5. For the high maintenance
Perfume from Favorit&co
Favorit & Co’s handmade collection of eau de parfums, room scents and cosmetics are devised in Zurich by graphic designer Stefan Jandl and a team of seasoned craftsmen. The team always produce with sustainability in mind and as much as they can locally.
6. For the neat
Facial oil by Neighbourhood Botanicals
Ideal to soothe skin from razor irritation, this men's only oil is the bee's knees for lasting moisture. It's non greasy and leaves an anti bacterial barrier on the skin which is great for the annoying "mask-ne" symptoms. Also great to use as beard oil !
6. For the surfer
Board shorts made from recycled fishnets
For the beach boys out there, these swim shorts are made from recycled ocean waste. The fabric is printed by sublimation, using water-based, solvent-free inks and a heat press. Not only is this one of the most eco-friendly printing processes, but it also produces some of the most sustainable results, as the colours are highly resistant to the effects of salt, sea and chlorine. Basically swimming trunks but better.
