Stocking stuffers are the bane of my holiday season existence, especially when it comes to finding items for my husband. How about you?
My boo usually gets a random selection of chocolate—including bars plucked from the shelves of the grocery store checkout aisle and if he’s lucky more thoughtful ethically-sourced ones—and maybe a pair of socks and a pack of carpenter’s pencils. I mean, it’s hard to buy for men, right?
This year, I’m determined to do better with desirable, practical, waste-free stocking stuffers. Here’s what made the shortlist.
etee Shave Lather Bar
I don’t know about yours but my man tends to buy shaving cream based on what’s on sale. I think his face deserves better. So, this luxurious lavender-scented bar—made with skin-moisturizing ingredients like organic coconut oil, castor oil, and cocoa butter—will be the first item in his stocking.
Old School Coffee Salt
Small batch, handcrafted, all-natural, unrefined sea salt infused with cocoa-y, caramel-y espresso beans! It’s a winning combination that will take his dishes and desserts to the next level. Oh, and did we mention it’s crafted on Vancouver Island?
Soul Comfort Wool and Hemp Insoles
Thermoregulating insoles? Like walking on clouds that keep you warm in winter and cool in summer! They come in four different weights—350 for work boots, 700 for work boots, 850 for snow boots, 950 for the pushest experience—so you can choose the perfect pair for him.
I don’t know a man who wouldn’t enjoy a great selection of toothpicks whittled from northern white birch and infused with their all natural flavours of cinnamint, mint, single malt Islay scotch whisky, and Kentucky bourbon. And for every tree milled, 100 are planted. Win-win for everyone.
Lee Valley Keychain Multitool
Small is beautiful—and super useful. Lee Valley’s keychain is a pocket tool featuring a bottle opener, hex wrench, Phillips screwdriver, and a safety cutter blade for slicing open cardboard boxes. Ideal for your MacGuyver-ing man.
etee Waxed Canvas Cutlery Kit
He can easily throw this cutlery kit into his backpack or lunch kit for waste-free meals-on-the-go. Included: Bamboo cutlery with a stain-repelling, beeswaxed, organic cotton carrying case. All made from 100% biodegradable ingredients which means no plastic to send to the landfill!
Tentree Cork Card Wallet
To be honest, this one might not make it into his stocking. I love the straightforward simplicity of this wallet. Plus it’s made from renewable cork, has a RFID blocker built in, and is lightweight, and super durable.
etee Smile Care Kit
Fresh breath AND a smile that lights up a room? Yes, please! This kit has everything to make him under-the-mistletoe ready: One jar of Chew Paste (64 tablets), a Bamboo Toothbrush, a jar of Mint Dental Floss (incl. two spools of silk floss), and one Organic Beeswax Jumbo Lip Balm
We’re inching closer to Christmas morning and the stocking stuffer reveals! But don’t panic! There’s still a little window to source these perfect gifts. FYI: The shipping deadline for etee gifts is December 18th.
Stuff it good, friends,
