Shave kit

Caving to peer pressure (all the other green bloggers are doing it) and my love of online shopping, this week I'll feature ideas for green holiday shopping, for different recipients each day. The gifts will be green through and through, but not in a crunchy-granola-treehuggy way, and they won't break your budget. Today: Gifts for him.

Monday: Gifts for friends and coworkers

Tuesday: Gifts for her

Thursday: Gifts for kids

Friday: Gifts for philanthropists
