Ahhh, Gift Guides….
‘Tis the season for all of the blogs out there to give out all their gift ideas.
A couple we’ve seen so far:
Inhabitat’s Green Gift Guide, is a collection of sustainable gift ideas in 15 different categories, from gifts for her, for him, for pets, and homemade how to’s.
There’s also Treehugger’s Holiday Gift Guide: Give Green to Save Green, which includes everything “from energy-saving gadgets for the green geek to toys for the little ones.” They have 12 categories, with over 100 items.
Then there is our Gift Guide.
It’s not green, It’s not gift’s that are all under $25, it’s not all things you can make yourself, it’s not gifts for your parents, and it certainly won’t all be posted in one day.
The only common factor in these mini lists that we’ll post continuously over the next few weeks, is that they are gifts that we think are cool, and we would love to receive. That being said, hopefully you will see something that you yourself want or would like to give to someone else.
