No Unnecessary Present Pacts!
It might seem strange that a Christmas site is linking to a place where you can send and sign a 'No Unnecessary Present Pact' - but we think it's a GREAT IDEA. It's the idea of UK 'Money Saving Expert' Martin Lewis and as it says on the NUPP site: "The NUPP campaign aims to take the stigma out of NOT giving unnecessary gifts just for the sake of it, fighting the over-commercialisation of Christmas. It isn't anti-presents. Family Christmas gift-giving's a lovely tradition. Yet a tick-list of presents for friends, which will only languish unused in cupboards, isn't."
So please have a look and think about having a No Unnecessary Present Pact!
