The other day I suggested how you could fill this bag with cheap eco-gifts that are easy to find -- gifts that a foodie friend might like.

So here's our day #2 gift bag, with ideas for how you might create a themed bag of goodies for a friend who loves her (or his) beauty regimen.

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer
Available at Target, Whole Foods, and Walgreen's
Around $5.00
"I love this stuff," said a friend when I gave her some Lip Shimmer. Perfect for parties, this sparkly, moisturizing lip gloss is just what the doctor ordered for those dry winter days.

Bass Bamboo Hairbrush
Available at Whole Foods and
Between $7.00 and $20.00 depending on size and style
"I love my new brush. I just want to keep brushing my hair,"said another friend who received a Bass bamboo brush. It's a little like having strong manly fingers massage your head... without the dirty socks around your apartment.
