Holiday Gift Guide 2012 - For the Gay Girls in Your Life!
For the Do-Gooder:
Play With Your Food
This whimsical and stylish Silver Flying Saucer Bowl turns everyday meals into out-of-this-world feasts. It makes for a great space-age centerpiece or a fruit bowl extraordinaire. Or try the cheeky stoneware Warm or Cool Face Mugs, which hold beverages up top and have a special cubby for your favorite nibbles below. Uncommon Goods, which sells wares by artists and designers around the globe, is an eco-friendly company that donates a portion of each order to one of these nonprofit organizations: American Forests, AmeriCares, City Harvest, and Tori Amos's Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. $300 and $35
Adoption Minus the College Costs
Never seen a manatee? The slow-moving, affable creatures are endangered, and many are injured or killed each year by boats. What better gift than adopting a real Florida manatee from the Jimmy Buffett-founded Save the Manatee Club? You choose who to adopt (read all about Squeaky, Rocket, and Annie online), and your money helps fund efforts to protect the popular endangered marine mammals and their aquatic habitat. You'll get an adoption certificate, photo of your manatee, a membership handbook, and subscriptions to the club's newsletters, which feature reports on the manatees in the adoption program as well as other interesting information. $25
