While I am a very avid proponent of healthy, green living, I am also a realist and I believe that some greenies are taking things a little too far for my taste. When other "green bloggers" and writers tell their following to create a handbag from scraps of stained cloth, I have got to draw the line. Or wear earrings made from dried up raisins? Come on. This is the modern world and we need to control our consumption, big time, but those suggestions are over the top and frankly unsanitary!
Let's get back to reality here, folks. IDOG readers can look forward to a peppering of posts over the next few months that tout smart, make-sense gift choices for everyone on your holiday list. I will also focus on value as well, as the economy is affecting so many of us.
Here are 3 super picks from L.L. Bean:
1. The Bean Canteen. This is a food grade, stainless steel reusable water bottle. It comes in many colors and makes a great gift for your buddies at work, teachers, and kids. Priced from $15.95 to $18.95, depending on the size.
2. Trail Model Fleece Outerwear. This fleece is special because it is made from 85% recycled fibers. It comes in a variety of colors and styles, such as a zip front jacket, a pullover or a vest. A great gift for both men and women. Priced from $34.95-$54.95 depending on the style.
3. Washable Wool Throw. This easy care throw/blanket is made from washable wool, a natural fiber. It is super soft and large enough to keep you snuggly warm while watching the latest episode of Planet Green. Available in 3 patterns. This is a quality, versatile gift that most anyone would love to receive, like a sibling, your parents or grandparents. Reasonably priced at$49.50.
