4 Ways to Skip the Mall this Holiday Season

Skip the mall (yes, it’s possible!) this holiday by gift giving in four unique ways. Read on to learn how.

Whoever first sang “‘Tis the season to be jolly” surely didn’t have holiday shopping in mind. Dashing from store to store trying to find the perfect gift doesn’t exactly capture the traditional warmth and comfort of holiday spirit. Thankfully, we’re offering four ways to bypass the mall while still warming loved ones’ hearts.

1. First things first: give less

Yes, really! Giving fewer, but more meaningful gifts is the way to go. Plus, you’ll help reduce packaging and be more eco-friendly. Consider these ideas:

2. Get cooking!

Are you a foodie? Why not whip up delicious gifts in the comfort of your own kitchen? After all, everyone loves to eat! Try out these articles for inspiration and recipes:

Some of our favourites include Deep Chocolate, Dried Blueberry, and Pistachio Bark, Roasted Garlic Hot Sauce, Sweet and Spicy Nuts, and Chocolate-Covered Popcorn Cups.

3. Pay it forward

The holidays are also a time to think of those less fortunate and to lend a helping hand.

4. Shop at a health food store

For that perfect holiday gift, you can’t go wrong with doing a one-stop shop at a health food store. Need a little help? Use our gift guides from 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.
