While we might be attached to the things filling our houses, there is no better gift—especially for the sake of the environment in not contributing to waste and clutter—than something which is made with one’s talents. It could be a gift of your cooking, sewing, art, writing, or music. It could be special services only you can provide with the skill sets you have. All of these are clearly gifts from the heart, as they take more thought and time than a quick purchase at a store. A simple bow or smile and there will be no wrapping or packaging to throw away, nor anything to collect dust, just pure enjoyment and a warm memory of a special friend or family member.
