My DH and I normally don't exchange gifts with each other but this year we are exchanging need based items only.
I reuse boxes, tissue paper, and bags for wrapping.
We don't have extra lights up this year. Just two window decorations that are both LED lights this year. All other items were reused from previous years. We are only sending out cards to those that send to us this year.

WE save gift packaging from one year to re-use in the other, since we are a small family it is funny because some bags have been around for a while.
EW do not buy "surprise" presents that will end up in the landfill either. WE usually get things we know the other wants or needs.

Is there anything in your holiday routines that is particularly eco-friendly?
I know that some team members re-use or buy used decorations and of course some live with a smaller foot print.
I have given eco-friendly gifts. Last year I gave my sister a particular brand of reusable shopping bag that is a favorite of ours. Also my wife and I don't exchange gifts with each other. We don't end up buying things that are not wanted which will end up in the landfill.
