Shopping for a special man in your life? Everyone has mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day, but whether it’s V-day, a birthday, or getting super ahead of 2019 holiday shopping, here are our favorite gifts for men.
Since our products are made by and for women, a lot of people ask us where they can buy ethical gifts for the men in their lives. Whether it’s your significant other, best friend, brother, or random stranger, here’s the perfect list of gifts to surprise them on Valentine’s Day (or their birthday, if you aren’t into Valentine's Day).
Here’s some of our favorite go-to gifts for men:
Ranger Station candles are our absolute favorite. One of our Nashville neighbors, they have a collection specifically made for men. Another reason we love them? Through a partnership with Thistle Farms, the candles are hand-poured by women survivors.
Fun fact: each of the candles is poured into a perfectly-weighted cocktail glass—designed to be both reusable and collectable.
Another Nashville neighbor, Nisolo products are crafted (mostly) in Peru and all producers receive, at a minimum, beyond fair trade wages, healthcare, and a healthy working environment. Their shoes, bags, and accessories are the perfect gift for a special guy in your life. Read about their impact model and manufacturers here.
The Giving Keys’ necklaces provide meaningful, stable employment for people transitioning out of homelessness in Los Angeles. Customizable with a word of your choice, this is the perfect thoughtful gift for someone special in your life. Our favorite for men? The matte black.
KOTN works with Egyptian cotton farmers to help revive a struggling agriculture business. They are also working to stop the cycle of child labor by funding schools and partnering with pro-literacy organizations in the Nile Delta. We’re kind of obsessed with all their men’s products, so take your pick!
If the man in your life is a fan of the outdoors, this is one of our favorites. Made with adventure in mind, this portable bluetooth speaker is made from recycled materials and contributes to reforestry around the world.
Happy shopping! We hope this helps you make a special guy in your life feel extra-special, whether it’s Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year!
