Something for everyone

As in years past, we're here to lend a helping holiday hand by offering a few — 16, to be exact — green-minded gift ideas for just about everyone on your list — canine companions, bike-obsessed boyfriends and jewelry-lovin’ mamas included. If you ask us, one of the greatest joys in bestowing someone with a meaningful holiday gift is to watch as they slowly unwrap it, a smile growing across their face as they cradle their new possession in their hands before holding up it for all to see and exclaim, “Sweeeet.”

 

Without further ado, here are our picks for 16 thoughtful holiday gifts, many for under $50, that we consider pretty sweet. Happy holidays. (Text: Matt Hickman)
