As our first Conscious Gift Guide has been creating quite a buzz, I thought it necessary to capitalise on this and continue with our gift guide series through the blog. I've just finished my Christmas shopping for the women to whom I wish to give gifts, but I am still battling with other gifts to give the men (although I also want to gift everything on my and Em's Gifts for Him section in the Magazine). This is mainly because I tend to gift shop based on personalities, and right now I'm shopping for those who love the Great Outdoors.
When it comes to the great outdoors, I always get product-envy as the sustainable outdoors companies are mainly male-dominated. To indulge a bit, I've gone through a few of these brands to curate a list of gifts that I would love to give (and most I'd love to get) to the special outdoorsy men in my life. These are all ethical brands from some of my absolute favourite brands, such as Arbor, Best Made Company and Patagonia who specialise particularly in ethical and sustainable outdoor activity products . Hopefully, this list inspires you as much as it has inspired me...(my bank account and my accountant are going to cut me off soon)
