Some Creative Holiday Gift Ideas

The following is a collection of local/environmental/socially responsible gift ideas for the season of giving:

Tickets to an Event at Maryland Hall - Whether it's the Annapolis Chorale, the Annapolis Opera, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, or Ballet Theatre of Maryland, you can't lose by supporting the arts locally and enjoying an evening out on the town.

A gift certificate to Homestead Gardens or other local nurseries - During December, Homestead Gardens, in Davidsonville, decorates the entire facility in a Christmas theme, and has a great toy train set-up. And remember, it's never too early to stock up on native plants for the spring.

Support Art in Annapolis - From pottery, to paintings, to photographs, and fine wood products the galleries and shops in Annapolis have a selection to please almost any preference.

Make someone a Friend of Jug Bay or a member of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation - Any number of local environmental organizations could use your support.

The ECOlogical Calendar - "The first calendar to focus on the natural structure of the year. The ECOlogical Calendar highlights the often-overlooked primary division of the year, the 4 astronomical seasons. Our ECOlogical Calendar is the first calendar to be divided into four seasons, each beginning with either a solstice or equinox. It also illustrates a multitude of other natural annual phenomenon - moon phases, variation between tides, meteor showers, seasonal constellations and much more."
