Love the one you're with

Sometimes the "season" can get too festive, making gift buying stressful and the whole thing a tiresome ordeal. You and me, we both know that's not what it's all about.

Gifts are supposed to be a manifestation of love, right?

Well, what do you do when you've got little ones to buy for...the two legged kind that already has boxes full of plastic, noisy, light up toys, or the four legged kind that just deserve a little something for always being there with unconditional love and admiration.

These gift suggestions work just as well for parents of the two-leggeds and four-leggeds as they do for the little ones themselves, and if you're looking for something a little less tangible, I've got some ideas for those kinds of gifts, too.

For the wee little peeps: Plan Toys will not lead you astray: innovative, imaginative, ecological, and timeless.

Too many toys for your tot already? Why not start a 529 and ask family members to contribute to the future good of your little one.

For the Cat Lover or Miss Kitty herself:
Akemi Tanaka cat bed
Eco-Me cat grass kit
Planet Dog makes a cat toy
Square Cat Habitat Itch
Firstrax litter pod

The Pupster that deserves more than a pat:
Deadly Squire dog bed
Bill Pickles treats. . .any of 'em
Biodegradable Business Bags keep puppy
parasites out of our waterways
Orbee anything, but these little treat bulbs
sure are cheery!

An alternative to buying something for the pet (or pet owner) that has everything: Take a cause for the paws and give to a local animal rescue. Lots of them need blankets, detergent, beds, toys and tons of other stuff. You can give a good or give some cash, whatever you choose, animals are always a worthy cause.
