She's the gal who recycles everything from tinfoil to Christmas tinsel. She even has compost brewing in the backyard. This year, get her a gift that will impress her eco-friendly sensibilities: an upcycled scarf or pair of mittens. (Upcycling is defined as taking something that would otherwise be thrown away and repurposing it into something better.)

Uncommongoods.com carries a selection of cute hats, warm mittens and other items made from fabrics and yarns that would have otherwise been discarded. The scarves featuring reindeer, snowmen and other festive characters make great holiday gifts. Most items sell for $28-$40. Visit www.uncommongoods.com for more information.
