gift keeps giving second hand christmas

The gift that keeps on giving, second-hand gifts

With the rising costs of living and Christmas approaching, gifting can cause stress. But have you considered buying second-hand gifts?

Buying second-hand isn’t just great for your budget, it’s great for the person receiving the gift, the environment, and the community.

The gift recipient

Gifting second-hand is a great way to show just how much you care. Taking the time to find the perfect gift for your loved one is a great way to show just how much they mean to you. Imagine searching through vintage or antique homewares and teacups to find the perfect flower pattern for mum to enjoy her daily cup of tea. Or finding Dad a great fish tank to fill with tropical species. The extra time taken to find the perfect, unique gift shows great love and care.

The environment

When you shop second hand you are saving new items from being manufactured, including the resource intense shipping process. You’re helping move towards a more circular economy (learn more?) being a part of the solution.  

When you shop at a Reviva reuse shop you’re reducing waste to landfill, stopping resources from being buried and wasted. That’s great news for our precious local environment and waterways.

The community

Shopping second-hand supports the local community in many ways. Second-hand, reuse and op shops are often run by not-for-profits that provide services and support to the local community.

Reviva reuse shops #Waste2Wages model creates job and training opportunities in local communities. It means real employment opportunities and trajectories. Every $1 you spend supports communities, and creates job and training opportunities.

So this Christmas, consider buying second hand, get a beautiful, thoughtful gift and feel good about your impact in our community.
