Think twice about your gifts

You, like the rest of us, have probably received some gifts that are now lying unused in your cupboard. Find out what kind of gift the recipient really needs.


Savings: You can also make a gift or give an intangible gift. This means you don’t spend money on unnecessary objects.

Remember this: Asking for gift wishes in advance can spoil the surprise. Keep your ears open around your friends and get tips on what they really need. When you visit a friend, pay attention to what is missing from their home. You can also ask about needs from relatives. Since everyone eats food, cooking a favourite meal for a friend is often a popular gift.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Giving only necessary gifts reduces your carbon footprint by 1% per year. This is equivalent to the emissions caused by 500 kilometres of driving.
