More and more people are trying to go green and lessen their impact on the planet. Giving gifts that are considered green or eco-friendly, is a great way to introduce the men you care about to alternative earth-friendly products. Here are just a few ideas for some green gifts for that special guy!
Solar Charged Accent Lights
Many men enjoy landscaping and designing their yards, making them the perfect place for barbecues, parties, gathering or just relaxing! Gift this guy a set of solar charged accent lights. These lights are easy to use and utilize the energy of the sun to power the lights from dawn to dusk! You can’t go wrong with these easy-to-install-no-cords-involved lights! A set of six solar charged accent lights are available for $57.99 from BuyGreen.
Organic Cotton Velour Bathrobe
An organic cotton velour robe is a great way to spoil that special man! Organic cotton is great for the planet because its produced without the use of pesticides and chemicals. You can find an amazing, thick, heavy (three pounds!) cotton velour bath robe for that special man for $119 from GreenHome.
Does the guy you’re shopping for love working on cars? Or perhaps he’s always in the kitchen, cooking up something delicious? Try some recycled rags! You can make these out of old shirts (maybe find some that have his favorite band or television show on them) or you can find a five pound box of recycled white rags for $10.75 at Rag Co.
It might sound strange, but netflix is a green idea! So many people enjoy movies and DVD’s, but only watch them once or twice before throwing them on a shelf, or in a closet (or even worse, within reach of children who may destroy the discs!) Netflix allows users to check out movies as they need them and even stream thousands of titles from the internet to watch instantly!
Is the man on your gift list a technology-junkie? If he loves his phone, MP3 player, camera and more, then gift him with a portable solar charger! Many solar powered chargers are not only portable, but compatible with 3200 different devices! You can find a great portable charger for $99.95 from Solio.
Does the man on your list live somewhere it rains often? An umbrella made from recycled materials, is not only practical but earth-friendly as well! You can find a great recycled umbrella for $15.99 from LivEcoFriendly.
Solar Power Flash Light
Men love gadgets. A flash light is a practical, yet thoughtful gift for any man! A solar powered flash light stores energy obtained from light to be used to power the flash light bulb when needed! A solar powered flash light is great, whether he’s digging through his shed, working under a car, or dealing with a power outage in the dark! You can find a great solar powered flash light for $24.95 from HybridLight.
Solar Powered Calculator
A solar powered calculator is great for the guy who is constantly crunching numbers! You can find a great solar-powered calculator, made with some recycled materials, with battery back up and an anti-microbial surface for $17.20 from United Green Products.
What guy doesn’t love to relax in the sun? A hammock is a great way for that special man to relax and soak up some sun! You can find a great hammock, made from recycled plastic bottles, for $119 from Green and More.
Reusable Water Bottles
Is your special man always toting around his tea, coffee or water in disposable containers? Help him eliminate this waste he’s creating by getting him a stainless stell, reusable water bottle! These bottles are BPA-free, meaning no nasty chemicals will leech into the fluids held, or into the environment should it ever be thrown away!
