Eco Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

Finding a unique holiday gift for the man in your life can sometimes be challenging, especially when that guy already has almost everything.  Gifts that help the earth and are a little more unique than the average department or drug store gift for him are what we hope to share today.

Solio Classic2 Solar Charger

Though this isn’t strictly a gift just for men but I think they would really appreciate it, especially if they enjoy camping or hiking! This solar charger provides charging capabilities with just the use of sunlight (preferably not through a window, but does work through a window). It can even hold a charge for up to a year, so for sudden power outages this is great too. Solio makes more than just this charger, they have keychain and mini versions of chargers too.

Organic Male OM4: Soothing Herbal Shaving Emulsion

Mike L. enjoyed this shaving kit set from Organic Male and recommended it for any guys that get serious razor burns or skin irritations when shaving. The starter kit costs $15 to $30 and single products from $25 to $60.

Jimmy Pocket Towel

Men may not be interested in carrying around hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes with them, but like a formal gentleman might they may already carry a handkerchief. The Jimmy Pocket Towel is like an updated version of a handkerchief, it’s a small removable towel that folds into a small case. Jimmy Pocket Towel has a specific line of pocket towels for men from their “dapper jimmy” collection. This may just be a great way for your guy to save some paper towels and the earth.

ReFleece iPad Sleeve

For the tech guy in your life, he might enjoy this iPad sleeve from ReFleece, a company that creates iPad, E-Readers and mini tablet cases from used Patagonia fleece jackets. We reviewed these while the sleeves only had the colored fleece on the inside (the outside was gray) so I’m happy to say that ReFleece has turned things inside out and now offers cases with the color on the outside too!
