TreeHugger's 2008 Gift Guide is great, with more than 100 green gift ideas in 12 different categories. You can find gifts for the foodie, fashion buff, pop culture fan, green geek, wee-hugger, animal lover, philanthropist, health nut, do-it-yourselfer, outdoors enthusiast and jet setter. The guide this year offers ideas for gifts that are both affordable and low-impact.
As an outdoors enthusiast, I checked out the list and found great gift ideas (hint-hint)!. Some highlights include a kinetic-powered headlamp, down sleeping bags made with recycled polyester shells, a workshop class to build your own sustainable surfboard, and a daypack made from recycled materials.
The New York Times has an article today on environmentally friendly gadget gifts. Suggestions include energy efficient TVs, smart power strips, an "ecobutton" that switches the computer to energy-saving mode and kinetic-powered gadgets.
