When I think of gifts for my partner-in-life, I like to think of high-quality, long-lasting, and eco-friendly gifts that will serve him well over the years. I think of those boxer shorts that he praises for comfort, the basic t-shirts that just “fit perfectly”, and the luxurious skincare for men that seems to be taking over Etsy (and I’m all here for it). While researching sustainable holiday gifts for him, I kept quality, usefulness, and sustainability at the forefront of my mind.

*This Eco Holiday Gift Guide for Him: 21 Eco-Friendly Gifts He Will Adore guide is intended for those who identify as he/him, but many of these gifts are gender-neutral

In order to find the best eco-friendly gifts for him, we had to ask a few imperative questions.

  • What materials is the gift made of?
  • Who made the product and are they paid fairly and treated respectfully?
  • Is this gift something that a loved one can use for many years to come? Possibly a repair service?

A sustainable & eco-friendly gift will answer all of these questions with ease and transparency. If the answers are too hard to find, you have most likely stumbled upon a non-sustainable brand that puts profits over people.
