The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
We’ve got plenty of stuff. We even did a declutter month in February which barely scrapped the surface.
So one thin I really like is gifts that involve participation rather than ownership.
We’ve just redeemed a voucher for a chocolate treat. It’s one of those gift boxes where you can choose where to go and when and then have in this case a chocolate treat.
We try to use them to go somewhere we haven’t been before.
So our chocolate treat took us to a place in Leiden called Elleni.
Our chocolate treat was a fruit fondue and brownies with two rounds of drinks. It was a really nice afternoon out.
Nothing to store or make houseroom for and a lovely time.
How do you deal with giving and receiving gifts?
