There are plenty of pre-made gift baskets, and sure, that is easier on you. But if you like being one of Santa’s elves, if you like filling the sleigh with cool green gifts that pre-made baskets can only dream of – and being sure of their content and origins – then you are in the right place.

Hollybeths organic Marigold & Basil Shea Butter ($22) sounds good enough to eat, but it’s meant to hydrate the skin and uplift her with citrus or lavender scents. It is sold by Nimli, a New York City company that buys carbon offsets to cover shipping and arranges direct shipment to customers to minimize environmental travel costs.
