    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. :)
