Searching for the perfect present? Stop looking! I might have found just the right thing for whoever you're buying it for. Wheather it's somebodies birthday, you're doing some early Christmas shopping or you just want to surprise your sister or your best friend, you can't go wrong. Can you guess what it is?
Exactly! The perfect present is nothing. Let's define "Nothing". "Nothing" is an initiative by Greenpeace. When buying "Nothing" you pay a certain price starting with €15,-. Even though it's called "Nothing", you actually will receive a package consisting of a box with a card in it with - of course - the word "Nothing" written on it.
The face of your friend when opening the package will be priceless! But I think his or her heart will melt once they hear the thoughts behind it.
Greenpeace came up with the idea because of "nothing" being one of the most asked presents. In addition to this, Greenpeace thinks it would be great for a change to let the gift receiver appreciate everything they already own. This being your smartphone, guitar and lipstick stash, but also things like drinking water and oxygen.
Sounds reasonable right? But the real gift is this:
- Nothing being fished out of the North Sea
- Nothing being chopped for palm oil in Sumatra
- Nothing being drilled out of the ground in the Arctic area
- Nothing containing poisonous pesticides being sold in the Netherlands
What else could you wish for?
In my eyes "Nothing" is one of the sweetest gifts you can give and receive, so make sure you put "Nothing" on top of your wishlist and add the link I've put underneath. Hugs!
