Here are our 5 tips for giving thoughtfully this holiday season, so you can give better gifts with less waste and less hassle.
Who needs more stuff?! In Australia this Christmas, an estimated $400 million worth of unwanted gifts will be under the tree. So consider giving one great gift from the gang that will really be appreciated instead of individual gifts. And maybe let your friend decide with a GroupTogether AnyCard (their choice of eGift Card).

Wrapping paper is a huge contributor to gifting waste, and the equivalent of 50,000 trees will be used for gift wrapping in Australia this festive season. Get creative with alternatives like scarves or fabrics (like muslin wraps) that can be reused, newspaper tied with string and native sprigs or find a supplier of recycled paper.
Did you know you can donate a portion of your group gift collection to charity? We do the heavy lifting. Choose to give between 0-100% in honour of your friend. You can add any charity you like. If it’s an Australian registered charity, we’ll send the donation portion to the charity, organise an introduction and the tax receipts to be sent to each donor.
GroupTogether makes giving a gift from the group so easy! It’s perfect for teachers, Xmas, office farewells, baby showers, wishing wells or just saying ‘thanks’. Give a free group card or chip in with friends and family to give a gift too.
It’s so easy to organise.
