» The No New Gifts Holiday Challenge :zenhabits

What is this crazy challenge? It’s simple — follow all these rules:

Buy no new gifts during the holidays.

Wait, whaaat? Don’t fret, there are alternatives:

Make gifts, like crafts or construction type gifts.

Bake or cook consumable gifts like cookies.

Give the gift of your service — wash cars, give a massage, babysit, clean a house, mow lawns, etc.

Buy used gifts at thrift stores.

Donate to charity, as a group.

Volunteer at a charity together.

Have a shared experience together.

Create something, together, instead of consuming.

Give to others things you don’t need (a good sewing machine, etc.).

Find gratitude for what we already have.
