Great Green Kids Gifts Under $30

I am sure you have running around like crazy trying to get the newest hottest gifts for the children in your life this holiday. I saw a target commercial last night for a children’s dino-toy that didn’t look like anything crazy that was $42! This may not sound like a lot for 1 toy for 1 kid but when you have to purchase multiple gifts for multiple children besides everyone else you have to get for $42 is way too much! I decided to go on a hunt for cool & fun children’s gifts that are under $30! I think I came up golden. Tell me what you think.

Green is a Holiday Color for a Reason!

Green Christmas

The holidays are very near or maybe almost ending for some! It is a time for sharing and caring not only about friends and family but the environment too. The holiday’s are about over indulging and over doing but that doesn’t have to be. Here are some tips to make your season greener and brighter!

* Re-gift all you want! There is nothing wrong with putting unwanted/unused past gifts to good use! We do it all the time with the 3R’s is there any difference if you recieve something you think someone else would enjoy more?

* Send out e-cards or eco-Cards. I know there are traditionalists that say receiving an e-card is lazy or unfestive however it saves on many trees and garbage that will be thrown out after New Years. There are many companies around that make cards with that have a low impact on the environment so if you must have something tangible then use those. For example Good Greetings LLC, Pear Tree Greetings or Season’s Greenings.

* Gift Grab Bags! To cut down on spending and large amounts of wrapping paper try picking names out of a hat with your family so you only have to purchase 1 gift. Grab Bags are fun too! Set a price limit and go to town! The holiday’s aren’t about how many prezzies you get or how much money you spend. They are about family and togetherness! You can be more relaxed and enjoyable when you aren’t worried about money.

* Holiday Lights. The winter holiday’s are quite bright with all the homes decorated with millions of lights and lawn ornaments. I understand it gets darker earlier and decorations are always pretty to look at but try to purchase energy saving lights or solar powered ones. Decadance does not need to carry over into all aspects of the holidays! Give yourself the gift of lower energy bills during the holidays. Try lights like these Multi Color C9 LED Holiday Lights – Energy Saving – Outdoor or Indoor.

* Recycled Wrappings. Now that you have presents that will need to be wrapped try using recycled content paper or bags. I personally prefer bags or boxes because they last much longer and can be reused multiple times. If you keep an eye out for particular patterns and colors they can even be used for more than just the holidays. The Gift Wrap Company Festive Tidings Eco-wrap, Gift Bag, and Ribbon Assortment, 10-Count

* Be crafty! There is nothing wrong with making meaningful gifts either! It is the thought that counts after all…right? Bake some cookies or winter breads to give to co-workers or neighbors. You could even plan a cookie exchange. You can find plenty of crafty gifts on the internet and use what you have around the house. Be creative and green! Best of Christmas Ideas

* Decorations. Speaking of being crafty why not craft your own holiday decorations! This way you get exactly the decorations you are looking for, you save money and have a super fun time doing it. Making your own holiday decorations can double as gifts for others while speding quality time with your family and friends. Simply Handmade: 365 Easy Gifts & Decorations You Can Make (Crafts)
