We've rounded up more than 100 gifts that let you give (and get) green takes on classic holiday presents, but there's one more key category to help put your money where your mouth is: charitable giving.
These donations, made in your recipients name, help funds go farther than even the most sustainable material purchase by contributing to everything from artisan handcrafts to city rebuilding. Even better? They require no shipping or wrapping and can be purchased in the comfort of your home so you can spend your next few weeks enjoying the magic of the season--without the stress.
And don't miss the rest of our Green Gift Guide 2009: Have a Slow Holiday. --Produced by Mairi Beautyman
