Across the globe the month of December stands for giving. It’s the time of year that invites us to be generous and mindful of others; to engage in the wishes of our friends and family and to reach out to those less fortunate or suffering.
It’s also that time of year again when we get caught up in searching for "the perfect gift". There are the children, the partner, the parents, the siblings, the friends and then token gifts for the boss, the teachers, the neighbors…
Buying something for the sake of it, can easily become a hollow and costly gesture. Not to mention, many of the gift purchases that we make have a harmful effect on people, the environment, and on animals that we may not even be aware of (hardly qualifying as a gift).
In an eight-part series, we’ll explore gift ideas for a more loving and compassionate holiday. We’ll be unwrapping compassionate gift ideas every Wednesday through December.
Happy Healthy Holidays!
