GIVE less, GIVE more means simplyfying gift giving. Finding a meaningful gift does not have to be stressful or costly. Instead, finding a useful gift can be as simple as a handcrafted locally made item or gifting a lesson or a measure towards a health goal, focusing on simply carving time for a lost or hidden talent and gifts that receive use or are consumed.
