5. Ritual Multivitamin | $30
Traceable nutrients, gluten + major allergen free, non-GMO and no artificial colorants or synthetic fillers…because a multivitamin should contain key nutrients men need, no extras. I also love that they have specific options for men depending on their age (teen, 18+ and 50+).

Gifts Over $100 for Him
1. OURA | $299
Apparently, all the pro athletes are already hooked on this fitness/health tracking ring that uses your pulse, tracked through your finger, to keep tabs on your health. So much less obtrusive (and dare we say chic) than a bracelet or watch.
2. Hypervolt Massage Gun | $279
Counteract all that computer time with the mother of all massage devices. My chiropractor has this massage gun and it’s confirmed: the best thing since sliced bread.
3. Vejo Portable Blender | $130
4. Almond Cow | $195
Blow his mind with this plant-based milk maker that makes any concoction of milk you can think of in just 30 seconds. Coconut-strawberry-hemp milk or cashew-brazil-vanilla milk, anyone?
5. TOM’S Chukka Boots| $139.95
B Corp Certified, committed to sustainability and giving back, these boots are brimming with function and philanthropy. Sizing up to 14.
6. Sigil Scent’s Prima Materia Eau De Parfum | $120
Complex, yet subtle, this unisex, all-natural fragrance is bold yet soft, musky yet light, and totally a great gift you’ll be sniffing all year. My top pick here is Prima Materia Eau De Parfum (a refined version of their original scent Ground).
7. Askov Finlayson Men’s Winter Parka | $495
Meet the world’s first climate-positive outerwear brand. The company calculates the social cost of its carbon footprint annually, from the emissions released from making all parts of the jacket to the footprint of its employees’ daily commute, and donates 110% of that to a cutting-edge organization fighting climate change. And, the jacket is warm to -20 degrees, so you AND the planet win.
8. BrainTap Bluetooth Headset | $647
Braintapping is less physical than it sounds—this brainwave-guiding practice is designed to create calm, relaxation and rejuvenation. It’s like meditation on turbo-charge, and it helps balance your brain waves to produce better sleep, more creativity and a calmer nervous system.
9. 360 Cookware | $100+
A totally unique way to cook, this USA-made line of pots and pans utilizes vapor cooking. Yep, vapor. It cooks foods more gently and without boiling or steaming, which can remove tons of the flavor (and nutrients). The result is better tasting, better for you food. Read the full review and benefits of using 360 cookware here.
10. HARIO Olive Wood Stand Pour Over Coffee Maker | $115
Pod coffee makers, while seemingly convenient, are not planet-friendly. Try instead this sleek, easy-to-use, pour-over coffee maker from HARIO that will look chic on the counter and allow his inner connoisseur to emerge.
