Creating a Christmas community
We’ve really got into the spirit of more intentional gifting here at SmartPurse HQ. We’ve thought long and hard about the impact our presents have on our friends, family, and community.
Mindful gift giving, donating to charity, or swapping favours at Christmas is the way to go if we want to save the planet. No more cheap and tacky presents that end up unwanted or broken within a few days!
For our last festive challenge, let’s think about the things we can make that will save a few pounds as well as bringing people together to enjoy some Christmas crafting.
Why not make your own Christmas crackers? You can insert a little meaningful present or an after-dinner mint - you can even use one of our cheesy jokes above! Making crackers couldn’t be easier. Check out this great tutorial from Hannah Weir.
Including some silly games on Christmas Day will guarantee it goes with a swing - and may even get the kids away from their screens! It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive either. Shawn Howell is on a mission to bring back fun-filled, low-cost Christmases. Check out her video packed with games ideas.
