The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Experience over Things

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. 

 
It had a good menu that mentioned both vegetarian and gluten free options. 

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?

    Felt depressed at the idea of decluttering (it’s going to be a big job) but you cheered me up with the picture of fruit and chocolate. Seems like the ideal gift to me.
