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.
