The best green gifts are stylish, utilitarian, and enjoyable to give. For pampering gifts try Stella McCartney’s Discovery Set, a swanky kit of trial-size organic skincare products, or Kiehl’s ‘Ultimate Man’ gift set that includes luxurious before and aftershave treatments. Sometimes the best gifts are simple and inexpensive, try giving a useful guidebook to spark your friend’s green creativity, such as Living Green by Greg Horn, or The Lazy Environmentalist: Your Guide to Easy, Stylish, Green Living by Josh Dorfman.
For dog lovers, order a gourmet box of handmade organic dog treats from Canine Confections, a San Francisco bakery whose dog treats look more like Godiva chocolates than biscuits. Even the most fashionable on your list will enjoy green clothing made from organic fibers by top green designers. This holiday season, look for eco-chic clothing like Seven for all Mankind organic bootcut jeans, or a handsome canvas trench coat by Loomstate for Barneys, a cutting-edge organic cotton clothing line made exclusively for Barneys and available online. And for a gift that is both stylish and green in purpose and form, try Alena Hennessy’s original tote bags, which feature designs inspired by nature. Or select an ultra-soft polo shirt from Bamboosa, a company that makes clothing for the whole family from highly renewable bamboo fibers.
For that special someone, give a gift that sparkles from www.greencarat.com, a company that specializes in environmentally responsible jewelry, such as hand-cast pendants made from 18k recycled gold and ultra-modern titanium earrings made with recycled titanium and blue sapphires. Happy Holidays!
