Gift Guide: for the Lumbersexual
Whiskey is the go-to drink for rugged lumbersexuals, so they will definitely appreciate receiving a nice bottle for their liquor cabinet - or to drink right then. This specific whiskey is a great gift for Boston-based lumbersexuals since Bully Boy is distilled right here in the city and is USDA certified organic (lumbersexuals have surprisingly high standards, so organic ingredients are sure to please their pallets).
Lumbersexuals take their beards far more seriously than the Movember types. And for us ladies, that means beards are something we look at....and snuggle with....all year round. Do yourselves both a favor by giving his beard some TLC this holiday. Gnarly Whale beard tonics help soften hair and moisturize the skin beneath the beard. Their formula is vegan, non-toxic, and never tested on animals (who says guys can't be into eco-beauty?)
Modavanti, a JUGs-approved online ethical clothing boutique, recently launched their mens section, which gives socially-aware shoppers so many more choices! For the lumbersexual, we suggest this sexy denim button-down. It was made from organic cotton and was manufactured by Knowledge Apparel which uses fair trade practices.
United by Blue is a new JUGs favorite, and honestly, the lumbersexual in your life will probably love anything from their store. But, these socks, in particular, make a great gift because they are far from ordinary. They are made from sustainably raised, humanely harvested bison wool. Bison wool is softer than cashmere and warmer than wool, which means your lumbersexual can do all of their favorite outdoor activities in supreme comfort. Plus, lumbersexuals will definitely appreciate that these socks are 100% made in the U.S.A.
For lumbersexuals that like to make their own drinks and enjoy craft beers, the Jackson Cannon Bar Knife is a unique gift. It was designed by Jackson Cannon of The Hawthorne and Eastern Standard in Boston in partnership with 163-year-old local knife-makers R. Murphy Knives. Its contoured is handle made of polished cocobolo wood – a tropical wood known for its durability and beauty. From cutting citrus and notching fruit for glass rim garnishes to removing fruit seeds, making spiral-cut citrus peels/twists and facilitating workstation clean-up by scraping counters with the flush blade underside - this tool will take a lumbersexual's cocktail game to a whole new level.
Whether the lumbersexual you have in mind is a hiker, surfer, or skiier, this super-durable water bottle is sure to come in handy. The body is stainless steel the closure features non-toxic, food-grade silicone and a sustainably-harvested bamboo cap. This means no paint, dyes, or plastic ever leach into the water - no matter how long its in there. This no-frills bottle makes a practical, supremely-useful gift.
Every lumbersexual needs a classic brown leather belt. This one is made from luxurious Italian leather in San Francisco. Totally-traceable, completely ethical, the Everlane supply chain makes this belt more than just an accessory, it is a statement about the positive future we can create within the American economic system. Of course - your lumbersexual doesn't have to go around making small talk about that, but hey, if someone compliments their belt, ya never know!
