gift of less ideas

During the holidays, it’s easy to slip into the mentality of more is more. This season, we’re spinning things around and giving the gift of less.

These gifts actually reduce the amount of stuff we own, cut the amount of waste we produce and are more likely to create lasting memories than a mess of packaging. Make a friend date, tote along one of these functional holiday presents and discover how ‘less’ can really mean so much more…
