Are You Dreaming of a Green Christmas? Here's Your Green Gift Guide!

Ever since I decided to commit to doing my part to help save our environment, I've been rethinking a lot of things. This year, I decided to make at least 50% of the gifts I purchase green gifts.  I have scoured the internet to find the best green gifts and decided to share the coolest ones with you!  Don't worry, there's something for everyone on this list.  I've even included links so that you can buy online (which, by the way, is the green way to go!), so enjoy!

Under $10

  1. Natural Handmade Soap - Great to have around the kitchen.  This soap removes offensive odors left behind by onions, fish, garlic, etc.
  2. Organic Bath Salts in Lavender- A lavish earth-friendly treat.  Lavender is known for its soothing powers.
  3. Recycled Album Cover Notecards- This is a really unique stocking-stuffer for the music lover in your life.  Sorry, they're out of Michael Jackson cards.
  4. Donate A Rain Forest Tree For Only $10!  A very affordable way to be eco-friendly, one tree at a time.  It's also tax deductible!
  5. Recycled Glass Earrings- You don't have to sacrifice fashion to be eco-friendly.
  6. More Green Stocking Stuffers!

  6. Give an experience!  Do you need a gift idea for someone who has everything?  Give them a gift they won't forget- an experience.  Choose from white water rafting to climbing.  There's something for everyone.
