I love having lots of presents to open for the holidays. But this year, I’m trying not to buy useless stuff. So Dad gets a subscription he’d never get himself. Mother-in-law gets a jar of homemade thoughts-a-day for the year. One nephew gets video game $$$ (of course), a niece gets a gift certificate to her favorite salon, my kids will get movie ticket vouchers, and my goddaughter in Europe gets a YouTube video of me reading Christmas stories. Throw in a little recycled or recyclable gift wrap (except for the video), and I’m good to go!
