Our Eco-nomical series is a guide on seeking out eco-friendly and economical holiday gifts in these tough economic times.

We also want to hear from you. Share your gifts, get ideas or upload your own photos and video on our Eco-nomical group page.

This holiday season promises to have a little less ka-ching at retail stores. But there are other ways to stuff those stockings. You can convert one of those singing greeting cards into a music speaker. Or you can make headphones out of an old stuffed animal.

Don't know how? We've got you covered. Eric Wilhelm, the author of "Best of Instuctables Vol. 1" walks us through making a homemade iPod speaker.

We no longer support commenting on NPR.org stories, but you can find us every day on Facebook, Twitter, email, and many other platforms. Learn more or contact us.
