Coffee, tea, or a stocking for me? Interesting and eco-friendly, the Recycled Coffee/Tea Sack Stocking appeals to foodie sensibilities while being socially responsible. Handmade in Guatemala, these striking stockings are crafted from sturdy recycled burlap bags and are a shining example of sustainable design at its best. With only 2.5 weeks until you hang your stocking by the chimney with care, consider the beauty of burlap. Tis the season to help save the world—stuff this recycled sock with fair trade coffees, chocolates, and soaps and you’ll be giving a gift—not only to your intended recipient—but to third-world artisans who receive vital income.
I love to keep a funky and unique mug at my office desk and this Swarovski Crystal studded cup is simply the perfect piece of porcelain for the job. Not only does bringing your own drinkware to work allow you to be green it also cuts down on any accidental co-worker coffee consumptions. Besides, Beyonce has been telling us all year to “Put a Ring On it” so if you can’t get your significant other to splurge on a Tiffany’s purchase you can at least have a little sparkle while you charge up for that 8:30 AM meeting. Plus it comes in silver or gold!
