I won't be slaving away in the kitchen this Christmas. Nor will I be spending a fortune at the supermarket. Instead, our Christmas meal will be simple and sourced from my favourite alternatives to the supermarket.
I've been searching for sustainable and ethical gift ideas for kids that encourage creativity and cost less than $20. I thought I'd share my favourite.
I'm steering clear of shopping malls. I’m doing most of my Christmas gift shopping at local markets, where there’s stall upon stall of unique, quirky handmade creations far superior to the run-of-the-mill mass-produced gifts I’d find at the mall. I've mapped out a game plan that will see me visit my favorite Newcastle and Hunter Valley markets during the month of December.
