It's believed something like 5 billion pounds of unwanted holiday gifts -- sweaters, gift baskets, candy, decor and more -- end up in landfills every year. That means a lot of "perfect" gifts ended up being wastes of resources and money. For gift-giving, think less materialistic and more experiential. A night out for dinner with friends, paid access to a news outlet or a subscription to a digital music service are all great gifts to give ... with no waste!
