The Best Sustainable Gifts for Him | 2022 Edition
An Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Gift Guide for Men
Do you want to give a more practical and sustainable gift this year? We’ve created several gift guides that will make your holiday shopping more accessible than ever. Whether you are shopping for your dad, brother, grandfather, boyfriend, or husband, we make sure to only list products we genuinely believe are making a difference in the world and treating the planet and makers the way they should be - with love & respect.
What makes a gift sustainable?
We look for several things when deciding if a product should be listed in our sustainable holiday gift guides.
1) What is the gift made out of? The gift we add must be made from eco-friendly materials that are easy on the planet. 2) Who made the gift? The maker behind the item is just as important and should be compensated fairly for their time. 3) Does the brand implement sustainability within its entire business? We don’t want surface-level eco-friendly products; we want brands who genuinely care about sustainability and enforce it throughout their business wherever they can - from shipping to giving back. 4) Is the gift practical & something they can use for many years? We’ve all been given gifts we could have done without, but we find every gift we add to these lists are practical and going to be loved for a very long time.
Now, our top picks for sustainable gifts for him:
1. Apple Leather Wallet
Brand | Allegorie
Great for just about anyone, these apple leather wallets are beautiful, yet sleek and simple.
It’s the perfect size to fit into your front or back pocket. Allegorie helps to reduce food waste while also giving consumers a gorgeous and ethical alternative to traditional leather products.

2. Sustainable Watch
Brand | Mondaine
A classic, Swiss-made watch is always a great gift idea—especially for that guy in your life you might be having a hard time knowing what to get!
Mondaine was actually one of the first entirely carbon-neutral watch companies globally (which extends to all areas of their business, including manufacturing). Their manufacturing warehouse is powered by solar energy, and their collection Essence uses sustainable materials like recycled PET bottles, cork lining, and castor bean oil. They have leather options and vegan options, too.Shop Mondaine
3. Sweet Basil Soap Bar
Brand | Zambeezi
Zambeezi makes it easy for men to be more conscious about their skincare while still keeping things simple. This Sweet Basil Soap Bar would be perfect as a stocking stuffer, in a gift basket, as a corporate gift, or wrapped up as a full set. These skin-soothing, non-toxic beeswax soap bars are handcrafted in Zambia, Africa, and certified by the Fair Trade Federation.

4. House Shoes
Brand | Chilote
These house shoes are SO comfortable! They’re warm, comfortable, and made to last. Each pair is slowly handcrafted by a network of independent artisan women in Patagonia out of locally-sourced wool and vegetable saddle leather.
Plus, each pair includes a QR code that transparently tracks the slippers to the specific artisan group’s info and geolocation in Patagonia.Shop Chilote
5. Cast Iron Cookware
Brand | FINEX from Made Trade
Have an avid cook in your life? This cast iron brand, based out of Portland, Oregon, will surely take their cooking experience up a notch.
FINEX’s mission is to build a better cast iron skillet that will stand the test of time and uses machine-smoothed cooking surfaces, flaxseed oil pre-seasoning, and stone-tumble polishing. Each piece takes more than 12 hours to complete, and comes polished, tumbled, & pre-seasoned.Shop Made Trade
6. Socks That Give Back
Brand | Conscious Step
Conscious Step’s entire supply chain is GOTS and Vegan certified. With each Conscious Step purchase, a portion of proceeds are donated to the charity associated with that pair of socks. From building homes to treating HIV, there is a cause everyone can attach themselves to.

This is one of my favorite places to shop basics, and my husband has a few of their tees. Not to mention, Pact is probably one of the most affordable organic brands out there. Everything washes well and stays nice & soft - and each piece is made from organic cotton (GOTS)!

Coyuchi is one of my favorite brands for all things bed and bath. These flannel pajamas are made with 100% organic heathered cotton yarns where the color is spun into the yarn for the most natural and nuanced shading possible.
All of the cotton is grown in India, Tanzania, and Uganda and then woven ethically in Portugal.
