Sometimes I feel like I’m swimming against the current, but I do my best to cultivate a home that celebrates non-material values. These values I hold near and dear to my heart are also advocated by one of my favorite organizations, New Dream. I was pleased to be asked by their staff to contribute an article on my gift giving philosophy as part of their holiday campaign.
In the article, “Give Less, Give More,” I share my gift-giving principles that honor the recipient, people and the planet. For other ideas on simplifying the holidays, check out New Dream’s holiday resources. In particular, I love their just released More Fun, Less Stuff Gift Catalog.
I’m curious, do you have any practices or principles that you follow to bring more meaning to the holiday season? Please share your ideas and traditions, so we all may be inspired.
