Gift Giving? What If I Don't Wanna

7 years ago

For the past few years the idea of getting and giving Christmas gifts haven’t appealed to me.

First off, it is no fun getting a gift you know you will either trash, donate or re-gift down the line.

Second, I don’t enjoy spending the money I work very hard to earn on someone when I have no idea whether they will actually like or find use for what I give them.

& after watching this video yesterday, I have absolutely no desire to contribute to our increasingly large piles of compost.

Which leads me to my question; how does one approach their not-so-green family with the idea of not gifting? I want to stand by word and more importantly, Mama Earth. But I also have no desire to step on anyones toes.

How are you gifting green this Holiday season & what are your thoughts on not gifting?
