The gifter's dozen

Presenting a friend or loved one with the perfect holiday gift is a lot like baking: It requires skill, patience, beautiful presentation and the acknowledgement that if you screw up once, you can always get it right the next time around.

However, no one likes screwing up, which is why we at MNN have decided to lend a helping hand and recommend a few of our favorite eco-gift items. Geared to take the guesswork out of holiday gifting, there’s something here for everyone, even those on your list with esoteric tastes. Happy shopping and we hope your friends and loved ones come back asking for seconds. (Text: Matt Hickman)
