1. Cuban Collar Shirts £120

Men's Daisy Print Cuban Collar Shirt

In the brightest colours and most unique designs, our Cuban Collar Shirts are a winning birthday present or Christmas gift he’ll love. Made from 100% recycled plastic, these silky soft and breathable shirts are thoughtfully designed in London, and hand-sewn by skilled seamstresses in England. They’re the perfect gift for festival-goers, anyone who loves a bright and colourful shirt in the summer, and someone unafraid to dress for themselves!


2. Cork Backpack £75 - £85

For a backpack enthusiast, these are the backpacks that backpack dreams are made of. Willow Earth create sustainable, ethically sourced, plastic-free designs in East Sussex and manufactured by sustainable trading partners in India. Their backpacks are designed for comfort and style, using 100% cotton and 100% natural cork. In either rusty earth tones or a warm indigo blue, their backpacks are an everyday piece to be loved and worn time and again.


3. Case of Organic Beer £52

If you have someone who likes beer, there’s nothing wrong with giving it as a gift too! Much better than a case nabbed at the supermarket, Small Beer have an incredible story of sustainability in their beer-making process. They’ve cut down on the water required to brew their beer, never waste a drop, recycle and reuse, and use sustainable materials for their packaging. Not to mention, their beers are super tasty. Order a gift set for the beer fan in your life!


4. Men’s Vegan Wallets £45 - £105

Looking for a luxury wallet that doesn’t damage the environment in the process of making it? Watson & Wolfe’s vegan wallet collection is cruelty-free and low impact, made with materials that use less chemicals than animal leather and have a much lower environmental footprint. Their wallets can be personalised with initialising for an extra special, eco-friendly Christmas gift. Practical, beautiful, and thoughtful.


5. Long Sleeve Recycled Plastic Shirt £135

Just like our cropped Cuban collar shirts, our long-sleeve shirts are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill, or, possibly in the ocean. Our eco-friendly shirts are colourful, comfortable, and head-turning! Our customers rave about how breathable these shirts are, so ideal for everyday wear and any occasion. Too often we’ve heard that men’s fashion is boring, so for the man in your life who loves a colourful fit, one of these shirts are a stunning addition to his wardrobe.  


6. Sustainable Swim Shorts £75

Just like our own clothes, Mangata London create their designs from plastic bottles, repurposing plastic that would normally otherwise end up in landfill. Their colourful swim shorts are the ideal gift for any beach-goer. The fabric is super soft, quick-drying, and packs a colourful punch in their variety of prints and patterns (some are even hand-painted). We also think they’d be the ideal edition to wear with one of our Cuban collar shirts in summer! 


7. WAKEcup travel set £60

WAKEcup are all about the fight for the climate, while providing stylish alternatives to single-use products. For the world traveler in your life (or perhaps just the weekend camper!), this WAKEcup set includes a bamboo coffee cup, bamboo water bottle, bamboo travel mug and glass tea infuser. This set is a gamechanger for anyone who grabs a coffee on their way to work - swap that disposable single-use coffee cup for a stylish bamboo coffee cup that you can use time and time again. They also sell a variety of other plastic-free, zero-waste gift sets.


8. Skincare Gift Set £57.99

Whether you’ve got a man who loves his skincare routine, or someone who uses their hand soap for their face, we think a skincare gift set is a fantastic way to kickstart a practical self-care routine or support an already established one. Good Day Organics make their products in the UK, are cruelty-free, 100% organic, plant-based and give back to their local community. Where better to buy some gorgeous ethical skincare products?


9. Decorative Globe £62

A unique piece of home decor for the spirited adventurer or antique lover - this decorative black and burnt orange globe stands on a geometric stand made from solid brass with a brass axis. Nkuku focus on the relationship between an artisan maker and their handmade pieces, focussing on ethical, eco-friendly and sustainable design. A gift with love, thought and sustainability front of mind.


10. Recycled Firehose Belt £41 - £80

We love this incredibly unique gift with a story behind it! These belts are made from a genuine decommissioned British firehose, reclaimed and manufactured in the UK, and then transformed into a stylish belt. Elvis & Kresse are all about stylish, sustainable luxury from reclaimed pieces. They rescue all sorts of raw materials and reuse them, so you can enjoy luxury pieces without our planet paying the price.
