Unique Christmas Gifts – Buy Organic

Unique Christmas Gifts – Buy Organic

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” as sung by Andy Williams is one of my favorite holiday songs to get me into the spirit of the season.  I’d like to switch gears a bit from all my previous posts stating the doom and gloom of pesticides and non-organic materials and processing and how it can harm us, our children and environment.  This time I wanted to post an organic holiday themed article for those early Christmas shoppers.

 

The leaves are changing color and falling from the trees leaving behind the splendor of summer.  The weather is getting colder and the holidays are fast approaching.  Thanksgiving is just 3 short weeks away with family gatherings and the drawing of names for Christmas and the mad dash on Black Friday for the perfect Christmas gifts for her and the perfect Christmas gifts for him and let’s not forget about finding that most popular kids toy that the child (children) in the family have been hounding you for! And what about your friends and co-workers, what do you get for them or maybe the pet lover in the family?

Time is short, and if you’re like me you’ve started your lists and done some shopping already to avoid that last minute dash and disappointment because what you wanted is either no longer available or someone is trying to “flip” it online for 3-4 times its original price.  I get making a profit people, but geez do you have to scalp us in the process?

 

This time of year is hard to stay on the “green” path and still enjoy the holidays, but I have scoured the internet in search of natural, green, organic Christmas gifts for men, women, children, decorations, recipes and even pets. I have found some great sites and I have to say that some of the companies I found I had never heard of before, but bookmarked them for my own personal organic online shopping.

 

This list is in no particular order or preference, but I caution you that some of these sites have a limited holiday supply, so let’s get to shopping!
