If you’ve been reading the Dreaming of a Green Christmas series, you should be well on your way to having a well-decorated, eco-friendly holiday season. Except for one little thing: the gifts.This week, I’m going to help you find great, sustainable gifts for everyone on your list.
First, don’t feel obigated to spend loads of money on gifts simply because its Christmas. If you are going to give, stick with thoughtful, useful gifts that are handmade, made of recycled or sustainable materials and that serve a purpose or have value beneath the surface.
Do you have a music lover on your list? These recycled album coasters are a great affordable gift option. I know that my husband, a reggae singer, would love them. When we finally have our own home, they are just the type of accessoory I could imagine finding in the basement recording studio we’d like to create. They are funky without being gaudy, and completely functional. There isn’t much I like about vinyl, but these get my seal of approval.

- Made in the U.S.
Who Would Like It:
