I’m very proud of myself for sending my sister a birthday present without buying anything new. She loves old books, so I found these at Action 21’s Re-useful Centre in Leamington Spa – a warehouse full of second-hand joy rescued from landfill.
Finally I parcelled it up in an old envelope with the homemade card.
And there it is, a gift without anything new – no need to give in to consumerism for the sake of having nothing to give. Something we could all remember in the run up to Christmas.
