I used to be great at holiday shopping. I made my lists well before Thanksgiving, I spent time cultivating great ideas, and then, when deals cropped up, I snagged ’em like Meeko snags every featherweight tee I own. I haven’t been doing such a great job the last few years, but, this season, I’m at least making things a bit easier for you.

(And yes, this is a bit of shameless self-promotion. I almost never do it, and you really wouldn’t find these articles otherwise, so hush!)

Savannah Bee Company is a terrific organization that makes quality honey products (as well as goodies from beeswax) and, to make it even better, they work with Heifer International. You can learn more about their charitable Peace Honey Project at SpecialtyFood.com, or you can just go ahead and order me a jar of cheese honey right now. It’s cool. I’ll wait.

If you like the idea of a gift that gives back but want to make it super green to boot, might I suggest one of these 10 virtual green gifts I’ve listed over at My Life Scoop? Or, if you have your own go-to green gift, be sure to tell me all about it in the comments. I love that stuff.

If you’re feeling a bit stressed, don’t worry — technology’s got your back. And so do I. Check out these great apps to relieve holiday stress, also found at My Life Scoop.

I did a couple more gift guides at That’s Fit, one for guys and one for gym buffs (and for these I owe several of my friends a great big thank you — y’all know who you are), and I’ll have several going up at Paw Nation before long.

Moment of truth, and don’t be shy — where are all of you on your holiday shopping?
