As the silly season approaches it can be so easy to go overboard with a sheer volume of 'stuff'. However as we start to have a better understanding of the impact our choices have on the planet, sustainability is more than a buzz word, its an essential change needed to our way of life. So with this in mind we introduce to you our Christmas campaign 2022, 'Want, Need, Wear, Read".
The idea is that each person receives four presents at Christmas, something they want, something they need, somethings to wear and something to read. Not only is this a wonderful way to open conversation and dialogue around a range of topics, like excess, voting with your money and what you or the recipients actually really desire; but it also helps take the pressure off over stretched budgets.
So how does it actually work? There are no hard and fast rules and this format can be changed to adapt to your family needs. Write out a list with a few ideas under each category or really whittle it down to one option. Give each person a category to shop for or swap the lists as a complete set, the choice is up to you!
We will be stocking beautiful tags to attach to your 'Want, Need, Wear, Read' gifts, as well as handing out lists from the shop or in your online orders. And over the next few weeks we will be suggesting some of our top picks, and asking you for yours. At the end of the day how you celebrate Christmas and the traditions you carry are what make the day special.
