It’s great to go green, and the good news is we don’t have to turn into the Grinch! (Or a socially distanced Santa, for that matter!) Giving really is the true meaning of Christmas and presents are a great way to show your family you’re thinking of them, especially from afar. Though, we all have that one person on our list that is hard to shop for. Fret not, we have a list of green gifts that everyone will enjoy!
