The gift box: Just take out something you like!

„The first time I saw these gift boxes was in Dresden. In the streets of the city center, there were boxes at some front doors and stairways, from which you were simply allowed to take something out. I found this attitude of giving something away „heart-opening“, inviting and friendly!

Inspired by this idea, I now put a gift box out on the street at my house when the weather is nice. Sometimes I see people walking along smiling with a little something. And in the meantime, I have also discovered gift boxes in front of doors in the city center Regensburg.

This culture of giving should be continued, because it opens hearts. I find the feeling that not everything costs something and not everyone wants something in return endearing.“

PS: And it’s also sustainable: things that are still good don’t go to waste, but continue to be used.
