Dads, Brothers and Other Dudes

Manly Men

The men in your life might be a little trickier when it comes to gifts. Look further than ties and power tools this year with some of our suggestions below.


SAVE (Gifts under $25)

Tyvek Wallet – Raw Hide Tri-fold – $15.00 – It may look like leather, but this seamless wallet is made from water resistant Tyvek that is 25% post-consumer recycled content and can be recycled.

Recycled Bicycle Chain Bottle Opener – $12.50 – This bottle opener made from recycled materials, is perfect for opening some local or organic beers.

Organic Grassfed Beef – Prices Vary – There aren’t a lot of guys who don’t like steak, so why not get them some that is healthy and local? Check out LocalHarvest.org to find a nearby farmer who supplies organic grassfed beef.

The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook by Shannon Hayes – $22.95 – A great cookbook to accompany the above-mentioned grassfed beef!


SPEND (Gifts from $25 to $100)

M’s Synchilla® Vest by Patagonia – $70.00 – This fleece vest is made from recycled fleece and is recyclable. For more about what Patagonia is doing to help the earth, check out the Environmentalism page on the web site.

Planet Earth DVD – $99.98 – Nothing like a little high-definition to give the guy on your list goosebumps about our Mother Earth.


SPLURGE (Gifts over $100)

NatureMill Plus Compost – $299.00 – This composting system can be used indoors or outdoors, and not only are the results great for the garden, but according to the site, a "NatureMill automatic composter recycles its weight in waste every 10 days, diverting over two tons of waste from landfills over its life."

Tesla – approximately $100,000 – So, this is a SUPER splurge, but we’re willing to bet that there is no guy out there who wouldn’t want to see one of these 100% electric cars sitting in the driveway with a big bow on top.
