Sustainable Gift Guide For Him - Bare Blue

Lets face it, men can be impossible to buy for at the best of times, without the added pressure of choosing something that's not going to add to the excessive amounts of waste generated around Christmas. With that in mind, we have created the ultimate sustainable gift guide for him - suitable for your husband, partner, father, friend, brother, colleague - there's something in this for every man. 

1. Stout Soap, €8.50

This soap is always a best seller around Christmas, Father's Day and Valentine's Day. It can be used as a body wash, shampoo and a face wash, men love to have one product that can do everything so this is a great choice. It's very cool to look at too, and has a subtle cedarwood scent. Great for stocking fillers, Secret Santa, or adding into a gift box.

2. Solid Cologne, €30

Cologne is a popular gift at Christmas time, but this takes it to the next level! This cologne is solid meaning its ideal for travelling, its made with natural ingredients making it suitable for sensitive skin, and, it's refillable!

Take the practical route with a bamboo toothbrush, a lot of people don't realise how nasty plastic toothbrushes are for the environment! These bamboo ones break down fully within 6 months, whereas every plastic one that has ever been made still exists today. These bamboo toothbrushes are the only ones on the market approved by The Oral Health Foundation. 

5. Toothpaste Tablets, €5.99

Another super easy swap, these tablets are packaged in a paper pouch rather than the non-recyclable plastic tubes toothpaste usually comes in. These are a great stocking filler!

6. Collapsible Coffee Cup, €13

Most people frequently get a coffee to go, so having one of these cups in your pocked or in your car is an easy way to avoid 'throw away culture', and most places give a small discount for bringing your own cup.
