When it comes to giving gifts, whether it's for a birthday or a housewarming, finding just the right thing can be a very daunting process. And with up to 1 in every 3 gifts being returned or, worse, thrown away by the recipient, gift-giving can be a waste-generating process as well. Rather than giving a physical gift, consider giving an experience instead. A dinner for two, tickets to a movie, a massage or a personal training session are all things people can do and enjoy instead of having to figure out what to do with another object.
