Is seems that many traditional gifts, from clothing and accessories to artwork and home decor are getting a green twist, making this category one of the easiest (in my opinion).
SAVE (Gifts under $25)
TAPP Medium Necklace – $12.00 – The beads on this necklace are made of recycled paper by local artisans in Uganda and purchased at high local market value. Once they are resold, profits are used for community development in Uganda – including community based education and HIV/AIDS awareness.
LUSH White Christmas Holiday Gift Set – $15.95 – Any girl will feel pampered with this gift set that included the classic scents of a LUSH Christmas: almond icing Snowcake soap and buck’s fizz Snow Showers shower jelly. LUSH products are hand-made, vegetarian (or vegan) and not tested on animals. Many of their products are also available naked.
SPEND (Gifts from $25 to $100)
