I can’t believe the year is almost over. I feel like I just did last year’s Holiday Guide. Low budget doesn’t have to mean low WOW factor, here are a few ideas for those that are thrifty yet thoughtful!
|Live Butterfly Garden|
I don’t understand why there is a photo of 2 kids on this package because this would be great for anyone of any age. I mean really who wouldn’t love to have a gaggle of butterflies flitting about. Especially for those of us with gardens, they can make great pollinators!
|Recycled Glass Big Bowl Glasses|
These pretty glasses are perfect for that stylish eco-minded friend. They can sip organic sulfite free wine while watching the butterflies flittering about.
$24 for a set of 2
|Recycled Keyboard Frame|
For the tech lover in your life this 4×6 frame is a great gift. You can give it to them with a photo already in there to remind them that there’s life in the meat space – j/k, but not really.
|Softest Hands Kit|
I’m a big fan of 100% Pure products and absolutely love their hand creams so I was thrilled to see this hand cream set. I know where I would keep my 4: computer, purse, work desk, night table.
$22 for the gift set of 4
For the tea snob in your life delight them with a pound of organic chai tea from Davidson’s Tea. Chai not their thing? No worries, they have a huge variety teas to choose from.
$13.50 for 1lb
|Moleskine Sketch Book|
I love pretty notebooks. Moleskine books are one of the best out there. They’re durable and make you look good. This notebook is a sketch book but can also double as a journal – you can use it to skournal!
Not really sure what to give the person that has everything – how about giving in their name.
|Bat Conservation International|
|Children’s Defense Fund|
|Environmental Defense Fund|
|International Rescue Committee|
|Physicians for Social Responsibility|

While these items are a little over budget I thought they were neat enough to include:
|Wine Bottle Tumblers|
|Davidson’s Organic Tea Sampler|
