Slow Holidays: Gift Giving

By Jackrabbit.FM

It’s the most wonderful (exhausting?) time of the year… and it’s almost upon us. Considering we’re now well in to November, Ben and Brooke wanted to spend the next few weeks talking about how you may be able to reduce the stress, overwhelm, expense, clutter and expectations we all feel when the silly season arrives, and today they begin by going to the heart of the matter - gifts.   In this episode they offer you a few ways of changing your mindset when it comes to gifts and showing love, but also share a whole heap of practical and interesting gifts that won’t add to the endless clutter that comes with the seemingly endless gift giving.   Plus, they also talk about the benefit of experiences over things, homemade and consumable gifts and one of Brooke’s favourites - giving the gift of time and skills.   They also talk about the fact that, yes, Ben and Brooke do give Christmas gifts to their kids, and that rather than get lost in the Toy of the Year debacle, buying whatever plastic piece of junk is on the Must Have List for all girls and boys, they stick to a simple set of guidelines.   Brooke and Ben then list some of their favourite clutter-free gift ideas for a variety of ages, including, as well as a list of experiences or activities that would appeal to people of all ages.   Head over to http://www.slowyourhome.com/210 for the full blog post and a link to Brooke’s Clutter-Free Gift Guide.   Enjoy!     ==== If you're enjoying the show and want to know how to best support it, leave a rating or a review in iTunes or head over to the Patreon page to help support the show financially and join in on our live monthly video calls.
