Holiday Greetings to All…

It’s that time of the year again…and, depending on which holidays you celebrate and how you celebrate them, some of you may be caught in that unhappy feeling of not having gotten gifts for everyone on your list, and not knowing what to do about it.

I thought I would therefore share a few of our posts from past years that will give people in such a dilemma some ideas about how to give thoughtful gifts, hopefully ones that also do not clutter, and do not involve rushing off to overcrowded stores in these last few days of preparations. If you click on this link from a year ago, you will find links to other helpful posts from previous years as well.

It does seem that increasingly, people are finding ways to give gifts that are more thoughtful, more ecological, less commercial–and gifts that (importantly for the readers of this blog) most of all do not simply add to the overwhelming clutter in our homes. You’ll find a variety of thoughts, suggestions, and ways to do that in the above link.

Wishing everyone a safe, happy, holiday season, and all best wishes for the New Year!
