Buying a present for your guy is never an easy task, and when you throw in the element of trying to stay organic, nearly impossible. Over the years I have had to get real creative in my gift giving and have compiled this list of some of my biggest hits to share with you.
Organic Flannel PJ’s – this are so cozy that you forget that they are also helping our environment. Made from the best organic materials available, you’ll end up wearing these too unless you splurge on a pair for yourself. You can also find bathrobes and pajama pants for him in the same awesome material.
Solar Converter Daypack – This is a great gift idea for the guy on the go who needs to keep his cell phone or tablet charged. The solar panels built into the front of the bag create enough power to charge handheld devices without having to worry about carrying around chargers. You can also find portable solar chargers for your guy if he has no need for a large backpack. If he carries a laptop you can also find solar laptop bags that keep the battery charging from the sun’s rays as he goes about his business.
Canteen Water Bottles – If your guy is a runner or likes to work out, he’ll find a lot of use for these water bottles made entirely from recycled materials. This ensures that he doesn’t need to stop and buy bottles of water after working out.
Organic Beard Balm – My guy likes to grow out his beard in the water, but the texture is very scraggly unless he conditions it regularly. Beard balm will moisturize his facial hair and keep his beard looking trim and neat. Make it a set with a new beard trimmer in a travel case.
Auto Care Cleaning Kit – My dream one day is to buy him an environmentally friendly car, but for now I settle for car wash solutions that are safe for the environment. With soaps and waxes that use organic ingredients, his car is still clean and my planet doesn’t suffer for it.
I have also bought campsite privileges for weekends away, movie tickets and coupons for massages using essential oils. I try to think of new things for every gift giving occasion to keep it interesting and make him happy.
With father’s day just around the corner it is never too early to start thinking about what the ideal organic gift should be. I always go all out for this holiday knowing right behind it comes mother’s day, and my turn for a unique organic gift.
