Still stumped? How about tickets to a concert, play or sporting event or a virtual gift card to a favorite e-tail store? For something living, a houseplant pleases just about everyone. If the recipient has a truly brown thumb, plant a tree in their name at treegivers.com for $25. Green books abound, like Ed Begley Jr.’s Guide to Sustainable Living and Mireya Navarro’s Green Wedding, both discounted at Amazon.com. If your loved one has a favorite charity, make a contribution in his or her name. You’ll both feel good — while doing some good!
