FOR THE HIGHLY CAFFEINATED: This organic, sustainably grown coffee will give your recipient a pick-me-up and support bird habitats at the same time. Don’t worry, there’s decaf, too., $12

    Love this list! Can I add another idea? You could also plant a virtual flower (starting at $5) for charity for a garden lover without a garden or yard or who has everything garden-related already. Could be a nice stocking stuffer. See the adorable Sienna’s Flower Garden site ( And you’ll be planting the best kind of flower – one filled with love, support and hope!
