    As per my point of view, if i compare all the ten points the most eco-friendly gift is “Donation to a charity or an organization” as we are spending too much to friend and family in christmas more than our needs as if we spend as donation to charity it will fulfit there needs not demands like us.

    I agree, the perfect gift is the first one which is the giving of donations to a charity or an organization. We can make them feel that there are still people who will help them live a better life. And as an addition to the list, you can also buy an eco-friendly lunch box tins to your love ones, friends, or even your co-workers as your Christmas present. This idea would be found at Happy Tiffin site ( They offer various tiffin carriers which are durable, easy to use, beautiful-functional and affordable. You’d love to have this kind of stuff, because it does not only good for your health but it is also good for environment.
