Gift Giving Revisited

<p>You may remember [gh:node/268|this post on the Disutility of Gift Giving] well, Gothamist has post today about [l:|gift giving] in the big apple, and the [l:|Sanitation Department's suggestions for less wasteful gift giving]. Here are their suggestions:<br />
<cite> – Give homemade gifts, such as cookies, handcrafts, or framed photos.<br />
– Give entertainment, such as museum memberships; tickets to movies, theater, concerts, or sporting events; gift certificates to a favorite restaurant.<br />
– Give learning, such as language or music lessons; classes in cooking, photography, or other favorite hobbies.<br />
– Give your time or talent: personalized coupons that offer free services, such as baby-sitting, pet-sitting, computer help, or home repairs.<br />
– Give fitness, such as gym memberships, personal training sessions, or classes in yoga, pilates, or dance.<br />
– Give pampering, such as a massage, facial, manicure, or pedicure.</cite></p>
