There is an inherent tension between desire to be green and shopping for holiday gifts.

For those with time and patience, embroidery can combine both and after being framed ends up as a nice personalized kitchen gift.
It all starts with a pattern like those Food Math themes 'Sad to Happy' themes sold by Wild Olive on Etsy.
