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.

2. Scope Adapter/Meopta MeoPix

Nature can be so fleeting. Now you can hold on to that life bird in a photo taken through your scope or binoculars using your iPhone and this lightweight tool.

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