5 Last-Minute Green Gift Ideas

'Twas the weekend before Christmas, and just like this blogger, you're scrambling to find some good green gift fodder. You forgot someone important (how'd that happen!?) or a few extra folks are coming to celebrate, and you don't want to resort to some plastic crap that the giftee will end up sending to Goodwill anyway. What to do? We have some ideas.• Make a trip to the local farmer's market this weekend, and buy local honey, jams, or artisan meats and cheeses that will keep for one more week.

• Using a repurposed (squeaky clean, of course) Mason jar, whip up a few batches of beer bread (with a local holiday ale if you can find it!) or sweet quick bread, using organic ingredients.

• Put together a fair trade basket of chocolates, coffee, wine, and other goodies.

• Grab a ceramic reusable cup and a selection of organic loose-leaf teas.

• Stop by a local nursery and pick up a Christmas-tree shaped rosemary plant. After the holidays, it can be planted in a garden (or in a different pot) and will last, well, as long as someone can keep it going!

What other last-minute green gift ideas do you have? Please share because, well, we've got a little gifting left to do.
