Stop Returning Gifts – Do This Instead!
THE GREAT TWITTER #GIFTSWAP
One week until Christmas and already I’m trying to figure out when will be the best time to hit the stores to return well-meant, ill-fitting (in any way) gifts. Then it hit me: we could all save ourselves that time in line and go online instead – to our fellow Tweeters! One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and all that. So here’s what I’m suggesting:
On December 26, let’s all tweet a photo of a gift we got but don’t want, with the hashtag #giftswap. Then let’s search through each other’s unwanted toys (Charlie in the box, square-wheeled choochoo, ostrich-riding cowboy, etc.) and trade out!
Now, instead of dreading heading back to the malls (haven’t we all had enough of that?), I’m looking forward to my new tradition: the day-after-Christmas Twitter #GiftSwap.
