We have talking about giving eco-friendly gifts to mom but how about dad (or your boyfriend/husband etc.)? Giving eco friendly gifts is hard enough but for some people it is even harder to buy gifts for. In my (and I think most people) men are much more difficult to buy gifts for compared to women. You want to give the man in question something nice and useful while considering the planet as well. Making it very hard on yourself. Here I have listed over 25 eco friendly gift ideas to give you some inspiration what to give men for Christmas, birthdays or other holiday that does not harm our planet.

I hope my list gives you some inspiration on what gifts to give your man this year. Let me know what you got your man and if he liked your gift.
