1) Give less but more meaningful presents: Choose experiences over things. In the long run experiences are what makes us rich + the less stuff we buy, the less we need to produce and that is good for our planet.
2) No matter what you choose to buy - buy it locally.
3) Choose small independent vendors. They need your support much more than the big multinationals.
Actually I have an idea! You could give someone a gift card to a photo session! It's an experience, the outcome will last forever and as the years go by the value of each photo will even increase. Did I mention that you also support a small, local vendor? :-)
