Ready to spring into action after Buy Nothing Day? Make today, Green Gift Monday, the day you flex your eco-consumerist muscle by checking out my green gift picks for the home and garden.

After practicing a bit of consumerist restraint last week during the Black Friday alternative known as Buy Nothing Day 2010
, you're probably antsy for a "Buy Something
Day" of some sorts. Well, what do you know, the Nature Conservancy
has branded today — on traditionally what's known as Cyber Monday — as Green Gift Monday
, a day dedicated to online gift shopping of the "responsible, meaningful" sort.
To get into the spirit of green gifting like I did last year
, below you'll find a handful of eco-prezzies for the home and garden available for purchase from a few of my favorite online retailers. You'll find something for everyone — from DIYers to gardeners to sustainable design nuts — on your list with price tags ranging from under $5 to more than $150.
Now get to, green gift shoppers ....
