Last minute eco friendly Christmas gift ideas

When choosing a gift becomes almost impossible because "they have everything" choosing a no waste gift that will really be appreciated can be hard.

Who says that a Christmas gift has to fit into a package?  Instead of bringing the gift to them, bring them to the gift.  This Christmas, give gifts that won’t leave any waste behind.

Instead of buying a CD for a friend who likes music, treat them to a concert.  Wrap up two tickets to an upcoming concert or a night of jazz on the town.  Live music sounds better than recorded anyway.  This is an excuse to dress up in our best evening wear. 

Tickets for other shows are appropriately eco friendly as well.  Take the kids to the zoo, the aquarium, or a science show as a part of their Christmas present.  Younger kids seem to really appreciate this type of activity.  For older kids tickets to the latest release movie always prove to be popular.

You can buy tickets online and often you can print them immediately. If you can't, make up a voucher advising what the tickets are for (put all the details on: who, what, where, when) and a note telling the recipient to keep an eye on the letterbox for their tickets.
