I find shopping for men to be one of the more daunting holiday tasks. It’s easy enough to run to your local Walmart or Target and grab something boring like a shirt or some dress socks but when you’re on a mission to shop consciously, it takes a whole new level of thought.
Especially since a lot of ethical fashion and ethically made accessories seem to be geared towards women. I’ve heard that shopping sustainably is harder for men and so gifting ethically for them must be harder as well.
Well, yes and no. It took a bit more digging but you’d be surprised to find out how many ethically made things from clothing to accessories to shoes there are for men.
So whether you’re shopping for a boyfriend, brother, husband, father or anyone in between! I’m sure you’ll find something for them on this list of sustainable gift ideas for him!
