Gift Giving and Holiday Memories


Even though things are looking different this year, there are ways to connect and still celebrate the spirit of the season.  Spend some time online with family or friends, bake a cake or make other handmade goodies to drop on a friends doorstep, send a homemade card with a letter inside, take a walk around the neighbourhood to see the decorated homes, purchase long lasting gifts from a local shop offering curbside pickup.

Here are a few tips to help you reduce waste this year:

Give GIFTS THAT LAST such as a game, camping gear, family portrait, DIY kits or cast iron cookware.
MAKE YOUR OWN gifts. Create a recipe book, bake some goodies or make homemade jewelry.
Shop for SECOND-HAND GIFTS and give something a new life. Pass along family heirlooms or your favourite book. Shop for antiques or other one-of-a-kind gifts.
