The thought of gift giving every holiday season is usually filled with items that are fun, wanted and not necessarily needed. When you think of the advertisements and other content out there on the Internet as well as at local stores, it seems the idea of Conscious Gift Giving goes unmentioned. There’s something to be said about Conscious Gift Giving; it’s a gift that keeps giving and a gift that comes with more thought than your average holiday gift giving ideas. Today I wanted to share a few ways you can be a conscious gift giver this year so that you can give the gift that keeps on giving.
