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 — and watch Tina make a simple holiday gift.

With the arrival of Thanksgiving, the holiday shopping season is expected to get into high gear. But the poor economy is making it difficult to get into the spirit of gift giving. So we're scouting creative ways to give your wallet a break. We'll also discuss ways to save the environment while you save money.

Blogger Tina Henry-Barrus, otherwise known as "Tina Seamonster," helps us get crafty.
