What is a pre-Christmas NUPP?
Ever received a gift you never used? The NUPP campaign aims to take the stigma out of NOT giving unnecessary gifts just for the sake of it, fighting the over-commercialisation of Christmas.
It isn't anti-presents. Family Christmas gift-giving's a lovely tradition. Yet a tick-list of presents for friends, that'll languish unused in cupboards isn't.
Not giving can be a bigger gift. Buying presents can obligate friends to do the same, even if they can't afford it.
What about small gifts? That's NUPP-Lite, where you agree to limit gift costs to £5 or £10 and some thought. Or why not give time or to charity instead?
