Moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle means taking all chances to give sustainably as well. This doesn’t always mean handing your MIL glass straws on her birthday; sustainability and durability go hand in hand. The more (and longer!) you use an item, the less wasteful that purchase has become. As I try to implement this in my own life, it also means giving gifts that follow the same narrative. Although they’re often more expensive, higher-quality gifts that can last a lifetime as opposed to single-use items are becoming increasingly popular, and we love it. Here are some timeless gift ideas for any SO in your life:
The Bordering-On-Lingerie Clothing
Mirror Palais FiFiFou Dress Ivory – $495
Because lingerie is always cool for V-Day, but give her something she can wear everyday and she will love you!! This dress has the best of both worlds.
The Cute Tote
Three Potato Four Hot Bagels Tote – $36
The perfect gift: This tote, roses, her fave foods, and watching Netflix all night. You’re welcome!
Knobbly Studio Garçonne Locket – $325
So she can put a picture of you in it (or, more likely, a picture of her dog). But seriously, she’ll keep this forever.
The Cute AF Self Care Kit
Squish Beauty ShuishKit 2 – $40
Not the most “durable” gift, but you know she’ll use it.
OK, I take it back, *this* one you know she’ll use. Plus the wipes are compostable and biodegradable, yay!
The Leather Wallet
Alterior Design For Mister Green Card Case – $119
Why does every single man I know complain about losing and/or breaking their wallet constantly? Whatever, just get him a nice wallet he won’t forget about.
The Will-Last-You-A-Lifetime Coat
Best Made Co. 3L Field Coat – $298
This 3-layer, waterproof jacket is the ultimate gift for any guy who lives in the Midwest or anyone that just needs a coat really.
The Perfect Pen
Baronfig Squire Rollerball Pen – $55
Best for: anyone that wants an egronomic-shaped aluminum pen that will last them forever.
Not good for: Someone that will inevitably lose this $55 pen the week they get it.
The Luxury Shave Set
Proraso Travel Shave Kit – $15
Because guys aren’t as advanced as us ladies in the beauty realm; give them something that will make them wonder what the Irish-Spring-to-the-face skincare routine has them missing.
The Unisex Shopper
Telfar Global Medium White Shopping Bag – $202
Honestly, the underrated it-bag of the year, Telfar’s bags come in every size and color you could imagine. Their unisex design makes it that much better.
The Aesthetically Pleasing Puzzle
Piecework Forbidden Fruit Puzzle – $36
Whether you’re a Millenial or not, these puzzles from Piecework are freakin cute.
Louis Vuitton Miniature Set – $250
Mondo Mondo Center Of The World Perfume – $170
I’m a firm believer in scent not being gendered, but I understand not all women want to smell like musk and tobacco. This LV Men’s “sampler” kit will likely have at least one scent you and/or your SO love, and this Mondo Mondo perfume is raved about all over, also the name is cute.
