4. Binocular harness/L.L. Bean

For the birder tired of pain-inducing, neck-straining binoculars, this inexpensive L.L. Bean harness steadies the equipment without cluttering the look. Light as suspenders and equally as stretchy, the black accessory makes bins feel practically weightless. Carry them around all day and barely notice they're there. That's more birding gain, less birding pain.

For: Bird buff
Buy it here: L.L. Bean
Price: $9.95

5. Soy Candle/Chilanthropy

Chilanthropy's scented candles and soaps make supporting charities easy--and sweet smelling. Named for places the founder traveled, the soy-wax candles are free of pesticides and herbicides, and their triple wicks burn slowly and evenly for 60 hours. A portion of each sale goes to one of eight organizations supporting different environmental causes, from safeguarding the Costa Rican cloud forest to protecting the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.

For: Design junkie
Buy it here: Chilanthropy
Price: $36

6. Birdfeeders/Green Doxie Events

Provide your local chickadees and cardinals a snack with these charming gelatin-birdseed feeders shaped liked gingerbread men and mittens. Shipped in recycled and recyclable packaging, these solid cakes hold their shape for up to six months. Thwart squirrel thieves by looping the feeders back through the twine when hanging. Green Doxie's mission is to make a big impression with a little footprint, and the birder in your life will love these.

For: Bird buff
Buy it here: Green Doxie Events
Price: $4.99-$42
