The Green Christmas Guide # 7 - Think about the gifts you give

My personal hate is children's gifts that are plastic and wrapped in even more plastic and cardboard, tied on with ties! The type that you buy 3 for 2 in a supermarket, because they are on offer, not because the child really wants one!

How about gifts that give twice? Many charities run adoption schemes which are lovely to give at Christmas, check out this one here, which starts from only £10 to adopt a dormouse!

We also make gifts to give, jams in nice jars that we made in the summer, lavender bags and little walnut shells filled with wax {pictured above} and made into candles - perfect as stocking fillers or little thank you gifts for teachers, neighbours and grandparents.

  1. Yes, I'm with you there. There is some much rubbish in the world.

    BTW -- have you been to 21stCenturyMummy.com -- she is also writing a book about the Rubbish Diet (slimming down your bin).

    Merry Christmas!
