Sylvania 29490 23-Watt CFL Mini Twist, Soft White, 6-Pack: Home Improvement
Yeah, right... Who the heck gives lightbulbs as a gift? We do! Our friends just moved into a new place and as a housewarming gift we gave them a set of lamps and an ceiling lamp so of course we included the bulbs! We didn't purchase these since we're in another country, but if available I would have opted for this set. These EnergyStar qualified bulbs from Sylvania provide fantastic soft white light, save on energy consumption, and provide more natural light than most other light bulbs. Again, I know... lightbulbs as a gift? Yes! you might not consider it a "bright idea" but they're always welcomed and definitely overlooked.
Honestly, light bulbs like this are probably the easiest, most effectiveness and economically effective way to be eco-friendly. So, go ahead and change out all your light bulbs for Earth Day.
These lights are wonderful. They even have several different Party Colors. I put one in every light socket in my apt.
