Christmas Gifts for Guys

Men aren’t all that difficult to shop for…with some advice from your favorite Green Tailor.


#1 Guy Crafts

Men love working with their hands, and most guys have some artisanal hobby. Related equipment or reference books are your number one track to a mans heart…


…that and food obviously.

#2 Guy Gadgets

Guys are all, to a man, suckers for gadgets no matter how useless…don’t take too much advantage of this information.

There’s a wide range of practical paraphernalia that is always a solid hit with guys

I covet these Waterproof, Drop resistant, Shockproof Solar Phone Chargers for hiking so bad <3

#3 Cologne is a Great Idea


If a man enjoys cologne he’ll love the chance to try a new fragrance, and if he’s never heard of such things before, it’s a great opportunity to give it a try.

Cool Water By Davidoff For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 4.2 Ounces

I’m a long-time fan of Davidoff Cool Water but it’s a bit hit-and-miss when buying for someone else.

#4 Fashion must be Practical


Accessories are a great gift idea, similarly with fragrance he’ll either appreciate an addition to his collection, or appreciate having one on hand should he need it.

UHIBROS Jewelry Stainless Steel Classic Tuxedo Shirt Cufflinks For Men Unique Business Wedding White

If you know he’s not into a certain accessory yet, opt for something conservative,  rather than Star Wars cuff links right from the start.

Socks are also always a great idea, and it’s a fun way a lot of men like to be quirky. PACT does some great sustainable socks:


My pair is going strong after 3 years of frequent wear. You can shop them from Amazon, and also read our product review


South Africans can also head over to Mantality and check out a wide range of men’s stuff available online.

And Finally…


#5: DIY is always Great

If you’re completely stumped, remember that most stores have gift cards for sale. Personally I LIVE for Builder’s Warehouse Vouchers!!

Vouchers from Amazon.

Chances are your guy will be buying something for you anyway, because gents are cool like that.
