Gift ideas

How about an insulated, glass, bamboo water bottle?  Glass is obviously one of the healthiest choices because you don't have to worry about stuff leaching into it, and why not sustainable bamboo to cushion it in a fashionable way?  Only caveat, this bottle is heavier than the stainless ones, but so worth it!

And while you're at it, try some Runa Guayusa tea, a new tea that provides antioxidants and a little pick up without the jitters of coffee, PLUS it's fair trade:

Light, waterproof, stylin' boots: Ahnu Embarcadero

My current light pair of stylin' books are lovely for travel.  BUT they not waterproof and are rather slippery, so with all the weird weather cropping up I find myself a bit slidey and cold with a sudden snow.  But if I'm on a short trip it doesn't always make sense to bring my stubby Keen Providences. 

Ahhh... Ahnu Embarcaderos to the rescue.  They're a nice basic boot with an interesting (and comfy hell) and they are surprisingly light for a waterproof boot.  Ahnu the company is also always up to interesting green projects, so it makes sense to support ther. 

Fit: I found these boots true to size and fit my narrow feet very well.
