Give Experiences

Green Holiday Action #4

One of the easiest places to Green your Holiday Season is through the choices you make in gifts.

Most of us do not need more things. Give the gift of time together and shared experiences. Tickets to a cultural event–a play, museum, concert or movie, reservations for a special dining experience or high tea, or just set aside a date for an activity. All of these options can be Green Gifts.

For my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary a few weeks ago, we all took a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. It was an experience enjoyed by all–from my three-year-old niece to my seventy-year-old parents–and shared as a family.

A toy or piece of clothing has a limited lifespan, a memory lasts a lifetime.

As an additional bonus, these gifts financially support your local community. So stretch your gift giving imagination, and color it green.
