Eco & edible gift ideas for the holidays!

BlogHer's got a bunch of great gift guides up for the holiday, and I just went window shopping to find a few gifts sure to be loved by naturally minded givers and receivers.

One of my favorites from the charitable gift ideas is the gift of manure — yup! Give a charitable donation to OxFam Unwrapped to "show your loved ones that you really 'give a $%@#' for our planet." Ha ha ha! Only $12 to inspire some eco-loving in your recipients.

Another charitable idea for well-loved and big-hearted folks who have everything? Ask them to give back! Send them on an all-expenses-paid volunteer vacation to do something like help build and maintain trails in national parks from the American Hiking Society.

How about some edible treats? Got a crunchy granola hostess or relative to butter up? Why not do it with granola! Pumpkin Granola from GoodBakes is easy to prepare and put into a lovely jar. Plus, it will keep well to bring along on a trip or ship through the mail.

For the tea lover, try the Christmas Spiced Tea Mix from Plain Chicken in a jar or tin — mmm! Spiced tea says holidays right there.

What are the gifts you're giving or hoping to receive this holiday season? Point me toward the best stores and tutorials, stat!
