Haven’t yet sorted your staff Christmas gifts? There’s still time!
Think outside the box and be good to your people, and the planet, with these sustainable Christmas gift ideas.
Gift an experience
Why not shout your staff a chance to try something new? Grab a voucher for a local eatery or attraction or check out www.redballoon.co.nz for inspiring experiences – from arts and entertainment to watersports and tours. No packaging in sight.
Create more joy and less waste by heading to www.thegoodregistry.com, where you can buy gift cards that enable staff to make donations to charities they care about. Or for a bit of fun, do good by grabbing a pile of poo, a pair of chickens or a pineapple at www.oxfam.org.nz/unwrapped. Remember, donations over $5 are eligible for a tax credit.
Gifts that grow
From single trees to bonsai and culinary hampers, NZ’s leading living gift company, Tree Gifts, has something for everyone.
Another great option is Trees for Bees. With bee numbers declining worldwide, planting trees specifically to offer food for bees is not only a great gift for your staff or clients, but it’s also a wonderful gift to help the sustainability of New Zealand agriculture.
Keep it simple
