Every time Christmas season rolls around, we get into a slight frenzy with gift-buying and gathering plans. Another major to-do? Proclaiming our Christmas wish list. As we move towards more conscious shopping, the last thing we want is to give or receive items that end up in their packaging for months, or stowed away for “later use”, never to see the light of day.
To kickstart this mind-boggling affair of conscious gifting, we would recommend you to create a wish list, and invite your friends and family to do the same. There are plenty of online tools, such as Giftster, My Wishlist and DreamList, that let you create wish lists and share them easily.
Besides simplifying Christmas shopping, the act of creating a wish list also forces you to think about what you really want, minimising the existence of junky gifts. We hope.
