Mason jars filled with cookie ingredients with recipe card attached. Mason jar is reusable, cookies are yummy.
Plants are generally appreciated with my friends/family.
I once made up a small book on green uses for household items you probably already have, including soaps, facials, cleaners, etc.

I donate returnable cans and bottles to my cat rescue/adopt center twice a year and this year I spent time there sorting them (thousands) for the cause! emoticon emoticon

In the past I have given:

A donation to Oxfam (hmm, I think the donation was for school books to an African village for my brother in law the professor)

Eco-friendly and/or fair trade yarn & knitting tools to my sisters (I've given organically grown/harvested/processed, fair trade tools, color grown cottons, etc. Oh, and, one made from recycled soda bottles)

Locally grown and processed food items

Last year and this year I bought some fair-trade items that my UU church organized/supported (I'm honestly not real sure about the red tape on this one)

What are your ideas for green gifting? They don't have to be for Christmas.

I'll start things off with a charitable donation. But ideally I give a donation plus creativity. For instance one year I donated money in my sister's name to buy a pig for a Haitian family.

I made up a "save the children" type adoption packet along with a fabric portrait (a thrifted stuffed pig toy) of the pig that my sister was adopting. It was fun to make and fun for her to receive.
