Have an Eco-Friendly Christmas!

If you’re like me, going out in the cold during the Holiday season to buy  gifts is not my cup of tea.  In fact, I’d rather be at home drinking tea while ordering online!  Another reason I like shopping online is the fact that it is convenient and eco-friendly.

According to the December 4th online story by Benjamin Koconis of The Washington Informer, “Online holiday spending in general is up from last year.  ‘For the holiday season-to-date, $11.64 billion has been spent online, marking a 13-percent increase versus the corresponding days last year,’ comScore said.”

The article continues, that “For many shoppers, the hustle and bustle of large shopping malls is more trouble than it’s worth, leaving them searching for other ways to buy gifts. Online shopping provides a comfortable alternative to many of the pitfalls associated with holiday shopping, such as traffic congestion, large crowds, and physical fatigue.”

Ordering online with triplethegift.com not only saves you money on gas, but also offers no packaging, no wrapping paper and no trips to the Post Office.  Since delivery trucks are not involved, using a service like triplethegift.com is the best way to make your holiday shopping Eco-friendly!




The True Holiday Spirit without the Stuff

This is the time of year when we think about all the holiday get-togethers, the decorations, and the shopping.  The prep for Thanksgiving followed by Hanukkah then three more weeks until Christmas puts me on HIGH ALERT.  It’s a giant to-do list and that is my entire focus for the next 25 days.  We have family that celebrates both Holidays, we have dinners and gift exchanges.  Though I love this time of year I find it so stressful.  Until I take a step back.  I read news articles or see headlines that many are still struggling financially due to job loss.  The charities themselves are raising less and less money due to everyone else’s bad fortune.  Wouldn’t it be better to focus and spend on those that don’t have versus those that do have?  How about a combo gift?  Donate to a charity in honor of a friend or family member while giving a smaller gift.  You can use triplethegift.com as a family holiday gift registry and tell family and friends that a portion of whatever they give will go to your favorite charitable organization.    

 A registry helps in so many ways.  No pressure to pick the right gift.  And with triplethegift.com any dollar amount can be given – – no floor, no ceiling.  It’s quick and easy from the comfort of your home.  And maybe this year, your dream gift is a weekend trip skiing or to the beach or a weekend cruise for the family.  Instead of more stuff, how about less stuff and more ACTION!  Something different – –  to get a gift for the whole family and help others at the same time.  Check it out today at www.triplethegift.com
