Green Gifts!

For those of you who are conscious and green, animal lovers, vegans etc.. you like to give within your beliefs. Here are a few ideas:

Susan Nichole goods are  100% vegan, made from eco materials and very reasonably priced. Handbags are $125-150, Wallets for men and women are $48

GIVE DINNER Three times in a week !

Purple Carrot is a service that sends vegan recipes and fresh food (often organic, always GMO) for the recipient to cook. Choose from different menu items each week.

The BioLite HomeStove 
  • A low-cost, biomass cookstove that drastically reduces emissions while generating electricity. Using the same technology found in our camping products, the HomeStove creates a highly efficient fire while generating usable electricity to charge personal devices. Very cool, great mission. Shop HERE. Save 10% as of this publishing at checkout with FRIEND10.

Thich Nhat Hanh’s Mindful Movements 

Designed as stretching breaks between long periods of sitting meditation, these became so popular they’re now an integral part of his retreats. Based on yoga and tai chi movements, these simple, effective exercises reduce mental, physical, and emotional stress. 10 routines are easily accessible, for all ages and body types. $7.99 Kindle, Spiral bound for $13 on Amazon.

From Ian Somerhalder's FB page:

My wife's bag line is pretty incredible. I love them and the message. Wow. Not only are they made in the U.S., so by purchasing one you're supporting a local economy, but they're also made from recycled plastic from landfills and the ocean. If you're considering a holiday gift for someone, THIS is what you should be supporting because THIS is what will change the world. FreedomOfAnimals.com

These are not cheap - they begin at $280, but Ian explains it's because they are made in America. And they certainly do look like great quality.


For Glam Bombs and those with a bigger budget, Stella McCarthy, the designer daughter of Beatle Paul McCartney and his first wife Linda, is a vegan and so while she doesn't tout natural things on the whole, she doesn't use Fur, leather or feathers in any of her clothes. 

You can click around on the hundreds of fair trade offerings on the Hunger Site.

The Udon Noodle Bowl: for rice and veggies or soup and stews too, they are easy to grip and have a place for your chopsticks while you're sipping broth too. Elan McPherson designed these classy vessels, that come in four handsome colors. (Great for the guy who has everything too). They are big and deep (5" H x 5.5" Diameter; 22 oz.) so helps keep contents from cooling too soon - but probably not for kids. Click the link to see a pic of a person holding one for size. Dishwasher safe. I'm getting these!  $36 at Uncommon Goods

Grow Zen!  They claim this juniper bonsai is the easiest to train, over a 3 year period. So many people have always wanted to have one. This is priced right at $32.50 from AMAZON

  • Does not deliver on Saturday, Sunday or Monday
  • This juniper bonsai will create the illusion of an aged miniature tree in nature
  • Delivered in an 7" glazed clay pot, with miniature fisherman

Travel Pouches - can be used for so many different things. I love the unique cork ones, but the hemp is a very nice color  - both  should appeal to anyone.  They are fully lined with soft hemp denim fabric, designed with a gusset for extra roominess, finished with top quality zippers and a cork fabric pull. Beautiful, durable, washable and made to last many miles. 
Small Zip Pouch: 6" x 4",  Large  8" x 5"  Only $11.95 from Eartheasy.com.

Also from Earth Easy, this beautiful pagoda bird feeder. Birds outside the window bring hours of enjoyment  to young and old.
