November 2023: What makes a thoughtful gift?
Are you looking to live more sustainably? We’ll post some easy ways to help you do it.
As we start thinking about Christmas gifts, more and more of us will need to watch our spending. But does that mean the gifts that we give have to be somehow ‘less’?
A thoughtful gift doesn’t have to damage the earth or our bank balance. Vouchers of time — like babysitting or doing the ironing or cooking for someone will be enormously appreciated. Perhaps you have a favourite recipe that you could copy out on fancy paper to pass on?
If you know someone will love the gift, does it matter whether it’s pre-loved?
A thoughtful gift doesn’t have to damage the earth or our bank balance.
There are also some excellent videos showing you how to make gifts — often they look stunning but are simple to make, so it doesn’t matter if you don’t think of yourself as ‘crafty’.
