Tackle tricky gifts for him with our Big Issue Shop collection

The traditional socks with a twist or mix it up with some vegan Star Wars sneakers with our Big Issue Shop Gifts For Him collection

Whether it’s your dad, your father-in-law, your partner or just a friend, the men of the world are the most notoriously tricky group to buy a gift for. If another festive tie and giant Toblerone aren’t gonna cut it this year, don’t fret, we’ve got you the covered with The Big Issue Shop’s collection of gifts for him that put people and planet first.

Our collection is packed with pressies sure to bring delight on Christmas morning, and each gift you buy has a ‘social echo’ – meaning each purchase helps someone disadvantaged across the world, or right here at home.

TEES

If you’re brave enough to opt for clothing, pick up a 100% organic cotton tee from WAWWA. PETA vegan approved and with a 91% reduction in carbon footprint compared to a standard t-shirt, this heavyweight t-shirt is perfect for the stylish and eco-conscious man.

WAWWA aim to make as high quality a product as possible, with as little impact on the planet as possible, and as big an impact on the planet’s inhabitants as possible. This tee makes up part of their 1+1 collection, meaning for every one bought, another is donated to someone less fortunate, with the latest collection making its way to homeless shelters and hostels.

TRAINERS

Po-Zu vegan sneakers are ideal for the sneakerhead in your life, and even more so for the Star Wars fans.

These high-top lace up sneakers are emblazoned with the subtle yet striking Corellian Bloodstripe, synonymous with the legendary Han Solo.

Po-Zu shoes are made from natural and sustainable materials such as organic cotton, pinatex (leather made from pineapple leaf fibres), wool, cork and natural latex.

SOAPS

Swap your cut price aftershave gift-set for a build your own set from The Goodwash Company instead. The luxury lifestyle brand is on a mission to change the world one wash at a time. With ingredients sourced from the Welsh land and sea, and vegan society approved, each purchase helps support those in need, enabling people in their communities, and animals in their environment the chance to improve their lives.

Buy any two Goodwash Company products and a complimentary gift box is included too.  

SOCKS

If you’re still stuck for ideas, there’s much to be said for the oft-dismissed sock, its humble nature often the butt of many jokes. But we’re here to tell you the gift of socks is so much more than a cliché – especially when it comes to Jollie’s.

For every pair of colourful and creative Jollie socks bought, a pair of hardy hiking socks are donated to a homeless charity in your local area.
