Buy Nothing

Consider No Cost Holiday Gifts and Activities




Christmas won’t be the same when families get creative and gift each other loving services and homemade crafts, and then venture into the community to do good unto others. The Buy Nothing Catalogue at BuyNothingChristmas.org presents a compendium of ideas, materials and testimonies celebrating the true spirit of the holiday. Searching under Alternatives on the site yields everything from initiating a cookie exchange, scrapbooking family recipes and offering instruction in a personal skill to creating a dress-up trunk for kids and printing out babysitting coupons.
