"It's worth a dishwasher"; "It's worth a romantic dinner"; "It's worth a walk on the beach"; "It's worth a dinner made by me". Make a coupon book made to suit the person you want to give it to! This is a very original way of giving gifts to those who like it and, at the same time, saving the environment and the wallet. One thing is certain: success will be guaranteed.
Offer services instead of “things”
How about offering an experience instead of an object? This is the ideal gift for those who are keen to avoid waste. It can be the ideal solution for those who are in doubt about what would be a useful gift for someone.
Instead of offering gifts that may end up being forgotten in a closet drawer, choose to bet on a “green” alternative and offer a service.
Some ideas that you can bet on: a spa treatment, amusement park or concert tickets, or dining experience. Eco-friendly gifts are also part of a greener lifestyle.
Reusable water bottle
These ecological bottles are becoming more and more popular. Instead of always buying small bottles of water for drinking, at the office or at home. You can choose to offer a bottle of water that you can reuse as often as you like.
An environmentally friendly donation

Offer your talent
Is there a more ecological - and unique - Christmas present than something you've done? If you have the talent to make an environmentally friendly gift, invest in the idea and take the opportunity to show your special gifts to those you love the most.
There are plenty of ideas: a cake, decorated cookies, a jam, a piece of costume jewelry, a knitted piece, a video full of shared moments, a painting painted by you... The limit is imagination, so be creative and get to work.
Recycling Old Gifts
You may have already received a gift that you did not like very much, that did not serve you, or for some other reason, ended up in a corner of the house. If so, it is time to offer them to anyone who can use them. If objects are new, recycle and reuse. The tip is also for those gifts that you bought and never offered.
And, if you don't have the original packaging, use your imagination and create environmentally-friendly packages. There's nothing like recycling to be more environmentally friendly, right?
