    Books!
    Last year we filled stockings for my two girls with second-hand books. They're voracious readers, so it was a challenge to find something they'd actually want to read and something they hadn't, but we're going to try it again this year. Maybe it'll become a tradition.

    I buy all my Christmas outfits and decorations from charity shops. 

    We always do a stocking! I love recycling our tree and wreath. I use recycled envelopes and help the twins to make cards using art supplies we have. We reuse most things apart from the food obviously.

    For wrapping paper over Christmas I always use postal paper and string. I feel it's really authentic and traditional but is also cheaper and easily recycled. :)

    I buy most of my clothes from charity shops and most of the thing in my house also come from charity shops including all my furniture and my telly. You can get real bargains shopping this way!
