Because I have teenagers and my nieces and nephew are all in the tween and teen years as well, Christmas gift giving has become a transfer of gift cards in recent years. This year, I decided to give cash. That way my beloved kids can spend — or save — as they choose. They get what they want, and I’m not perpetuating necessary consumption.
In an effort to keep the gift thoughtful and personal, I folded the money using origami techniques.
