planning for a Plastic Free Christmas...

I am going to attempt to have a plastic free year again.... aside from possibly my son's santa gift but from us I will aim for wooden toys and books... I am planning on making some vanilla vodka, jam and giving tickets to shows or magazine subscriptions.....

I love this ideas! We're pretty eco-friendly, and try every year to cut down on plastic and waste.

All the kiddos on my list will get either books or wooden puzzles ... Or possibly crocheted (made by a friend) play food

Family members / good friends will get tickets or a magazine subscription or perhaps a gift certificate from a service like a photography session

I will be making jam and the vodka and hopefully some cookies for my neighbours

It went great that year!!!!!! I am hoping for another attempt this year.... Everyone will be getting tickets to something..... No new wrapping papers allowed...books.... Wooden puzzles and crocheted toys.... The Santa toys are hard because if they ask for something that is plastic.... Well... You know
