'Our family are now doing Christmas gifts with an eco-twist, but I'm not sure about it.'
For many years my husband’s big extended family have had an excellent ‘Secret Santa’ Christmas gifting system for the adults in the family.
It means that the budget per pressie can be higher and while each person gets just one gift, it is one quality item that they actually want.
This year for the first time we will also be doing ‘Secret Santa’ gifts for the children as there are now nine nieces and nephews that all of us need to buy for on just one side of the family.
Last year the present buying followed by the unwrapping frenzy, got a little out of control, so it was suggested that for 2018 we not only buy less, but we also go plastic free – buying only second hand or experiential gifts for both adults and kids alike.
