A bamboo utensil set – a sustainable stocking stuffer

Here’s an eco-friendly way to ditch those plastic spoons and forks that find their way everywhere, from your lunchbox to the glovebox: utensils made of 100% sustainable bamboo. Reusable Bags describes them as “highly durable.” The set includes flatware and chopsticks that are heat-resistant and hand-finished with oil. It’s all packed in a case hand-woven by refugees on the border of Thailand and Burma.

Buy it at Reuseable Bags for $19.95

Digital Shower Timer – a water-saving stocking stuffer

Since the Digital Shower Timer comes in cute turtle and duck manifestations, we’re picturing it in a kid’s bath. Never too soon to raise their consciousness, eh? Still, if you’ve got a fun aunt or uncle, they might like this adorable way to time their showers. The device is battery operated and beeps when the time you’ve chosen has expired. Key here: Choose three or five minutes, not 20.
