For the second year in a row I've rounded up the most eco-friendly, interesting, and practical gifts that I could find using the same criteria as last holiday season:
- must be rated four stars or more
- has to cost under $50
Yoga is one of my favorite healthy activities. Basically all you need is the knowledge and a mat....and what a mat this one is!
This double-thick gem is not only textured to prevent slipping, but it also comes with a lifetime guarantee. Of course it couldn't make the list without having a green pedigree: it is recyclable and biodegradable! Color options include blue, purple, and black. Current price: $39.95.

What worm blogger can resist suggesting an eco-friendly worm toy for the holiday shopping season? Certainly not Lilliworm!
Babies on your list will be thrilled with this toy crafted from natural wood and lead free paint. It squiggles securely on a thick elastic band...plus it's a WORM!!! Current price: $12.99
So now all there is left to do is...
