Gifts For Outdoor Man

Gifting for men can sometimes present a challenge. If you are buying for someone who loves the great outdoors, they won’t be interested in tacky tokens or pointless presents! But Aran Sweater Market can help. Our wide selection of beautiful artisan Irish products has something to offer even the most choosy gift recipient. Here is our guide to gifts for the outdoor man.

Men’s Shawl Neck Diamond Cardigan

Men’s Shawl Neck Diamond Cardigan

Perfect for a man who loves to hike or get out in the fresh air, this cardigan will help him do it in style. Ideal for layering, this piece will come in handy whatever the weather, as it is made of wonderfully breathable merino wool. The temperature regulating properties of merino makes it useful year-round, while as it is anti-bacterial it will stand up to even the most rigorous outdoor pursuits! This cardigan works particularly well as a gift since it features the traditional Aran diamond stitch pattern.

This pattern is said to represent the stone wall fields of the Aran islands, and the fishing nets of our ancestors. Connected to these images of labor, the diamond stitch is therefore associated with the rewards of hard work and is traditionally given in order to wish someone wealth and success. The artisan heritage of the piece makes it a wonderful gift for someone who appreciates the Irish landscape, and every cardigan comes individually numbered, and with a signed and stamped Certificate of Authenticity. Your gift recipient will know they are receiving something that protects ancient ways of interacting with the environment, made using traditional methods and natural materials.
