Strangely enough, nearly everything on this page is something no one is going to give them.

Some of them are also listed on the Green giving guide so you can keep your tree hugging friends happy too, although a few are not listed there.

Plant Keychains, a tiny plant growing inside a keychain is a unique idea and purportedly all the rage in Japan this season.
