    The idea of a stocking stuffer is not green to begin with; almost always superfluous trinkets, these items are what end up in the garbage a month after christmas. Thankfully, most of the items here circumvent the useless aspect, though the FLOWmarket products couldn’t be defined as anything but useless. I really like giving plants as gifts though, so give on!
