GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
If your gift opportunities include Eco conscious recipients, one of these might fit the bill. Or, give you some ideas of your own. From frequent entertainers to the financially conservative.
On the surface, the Oster® DuraCeramic™ Electric Griddle may not seem an eco gift. However, considering it cooks up to 20% faster, your gift recipient will understand and love the time and environmental energy savings. They’ll also love the 10″ by 20″ cooking surface where they’ll create several meals at once for that family gathering. It includes a warming tray.
The durable Bamboo Studio Disposable Dinnerware Party Pack lets your eco-conscious gift recipient gather friends and family without sacrificing a beautiful table setting. From Hors d’oeuvres to desserts, the host is covered with this set handcrafted from bamboo sheath. Includes four 9″ Wine Plates, 8″ Square Plates, 7″ Square Bowls, 5″ Square Plates, 8.5″ Boats; and a Dinnerware Combo Set of Utensils. 100% biodegradable.
Or, for a simpler, but equally eco and useful, gift the Totally Bamboo States Cutting Board. It’s in the shape of the United States, so could be used as a decorative wall hanging when not in use.
Also available in the shapes of a few U.S. states.
Might they love the Gardenia Bonsai Tree Gift? It’s not only elegant and gorgeous, but smells delicious. Since it’s a bonsai tree, they can move it into the form that suits them. Comes in a ceramic container.

Give someone on your list the gift of fruit, fragrance and beauty with the Meyer Lemon Tree, which grows 5–10 feet tall. It will bear fruit all year long, whether inside or outside. You might suggest they prune it to retard growth if keeping inside. Bonus: these trees are low maintenance. Ready to present wrapped in burlap, with a big green bow. You definitely become the eco hero.

Have a gift recipient who has discovered the financial rewards of taking a lunch everyday? Give them the Black + Blum Lunch Pot. It’s the modernized bento box that looks great while it provides versatility in daily lunch preparation. This will keep hot and cold separate, as well as wet and dry. Two separate airtight containers stack on each other for easy transport. Includes utensil and carrying strap.
