Each year during the holiday season, Americans spend something like half a trillion dollars. Even so, we often feel as if we've fallen short on finding that perfect gift. Here are some suggestions that just might make the grade. Most are modestly priced; some even return something to the environment when you buy them.

1. Jewelry/Broken Plate Pendant Co.

Ames transforms chinaware chips into charms, rings, and other fashionable accessories. No shards to share? Choose from various ready-made designs.

Zero in on the bird, steady your hand, and click--a crisp, beautiful shot to immortalize your spotting.

It also sports beautiful illustrations by John James Audubon, making it one journal you'll want to show off.
