They say guys are easier to give presents to. A few pairs of socks or a classic necktie are among the typical gifts for men, but if you wanna go out of the ordinary and give something that'll really make a good impression on the special guy in your life, we've got some ideas for you:
For Good Grooming
Who says guys can't go for a zero-waste lifestyle? Here's a good grooming kit that, not only supports sustainable habits, but also brings social impact to communities and NGOs.
Choose from a combination of bamboo toothbrush and floss or natural shaving cream and hair shaper pomade, plus our best-selling reusable bamboo razor.
The Lakbawayan Labahabamboo is a double-edged safety razor handmade with a bamboo handle. It has a "closed comb" design which keeps the blade slightly off the skin, and the razor head unscrews from the handle for blade changing and cleaning.
For the Adventurer
Keep your things organized when you travel with these drawstring bags made by local communities.
Gifts & Graces Fair Trade Foundation promotes products made by underprivileged communities throughout the Philippines, with their main objective to give a "hand up, not a hand out."
