Hi Yes and Yes readers!!! Jamillah again sharing some ethical gifts for the fellas! You can see my ethical gift round up for the ladies on Yes and Yes here. I think choosing gifts for men is a little more challenging than shopping for the ladies, but my rule of thumb for the gentlemen is keep it masculine and practical. Here are some ethical gift options for those special guys in your life.
Such a handsome apron!!! I truly believe everyone should have aprons, so thank you Made Collection for providing this fantastic option. This apron is produced by Oregon Corrections Enterprises,Oregon Corrections Enterprises provides training for the incarcerated to help gain skills for life after their release, read their story here…truly great.
This laptop bag from Handcrafting Justice I think is a nice mix of urban style but all grown up, it’s also a fair trade product made in Thailand.
This handy cedar bottle opener set from Novica is just genius. The lucky recipient will never have to look for a bottle opener again! This set is handmade by an artist in Brazil.
For the traveling man, I just love these backpacks by EthnoTek. They look like adventure to me :D, plus all the prints support various artists around the globe.
I think a good bathrobe, like this one made by Gazel from Abe’s Market is a great gift because it’s something a dude could certainly use and love daily but not necessarily think to buy. This Gazel robe is made in Turkey and is 100% organic cotton.
I have very vivid memories of my dad asking me to look for his glasses when I was a bitty girl and now my boyfriend does the same thing! That’s why I love this eyeglass holder at Fair and Square, made by underprivileged artisans in India.
These tablet sleeves from Resku Gear is upcylcling at its best. Resku takes old firefighter gear destined for landfills and turns them into accessories! All their products are handmade in Oakland, California and a portion of their profits go to providing art supplies for children in need, you can even track your donation on their website! I’m thinking, if you want to protect your stuff, fire gear is an effective way to do it.
