“Green gifting” is the perfect way to encourage others to start buying recycled or eco-friendly products.  I love receiving any eco-friendly gift especially if it has been upcycled or re-purposed in some clever way.  Maybe this list will help make your Christmas shopping a little easier.  (Note to my husband:  I love all of these gift ideas!)
