Some Thoughts on Obligatory Gifts - Green Living Tip Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Get (or give) a useless gift last month?
Shoulda thought outside the (gift)box. We've all given and received gifts out of obligation - and let's face it, they're not always wanted. Stop the madness, and make a pact with your friends 'n' fam to get each other a gift only when you are moved to give, not obligated. Wise words, wethinks.
- Getting gifts when you least expect them (say, a Christmas gift in July) is fun, especially because you'll know the gifter was truly inspired to give.
- You think, therefore you waste less space. No whatchamacallits collecting dust and creating clutter.
- Not going mental over resource use. If everyone in the world lived like an American, we'd need five Earths to support our highly consumptive habits.
