During this holiday season, we will feature our employees’ selections of the best gifts.
Here in the Seattle area, there’s an effort to make the holidays less
about *stuff* called
“Waste Free Holidays”. Unlike the “buy nothing”
movement, it still allows our acquisitive species our seasonal
indulgence, but promotes giving experiences rather than stuff.
Theatre tickets, tours, museums, spa visits — nothing to clutter your
basement, just experiences.

The preview issue on their Web site has an great section called “50
Great Green Gifts”. I don’t think I’ve ever found a better gift

Japanese wood bath mats, human and eco-friendly diamonds — perfect for anyone on
