The holiday season is here and you know what that means — now’s the time to hunt for the perfect gift!
Have someone in your life who seems to have everything or is impossible to buy for? Before you go grab the latest electronic gizmo or drop $50 on a gift card, we’ve got a better idea: Focus on non-material gifts that save energy in the home, eliminate waste from manufacturing, and create priceless memories.
Don’t know where to start? Let your pals at PSO get you prepared with ideas on energy-efficient gifts!
Subscribe to streaming services
Give the gift of entertainment with a subscription to a streaming service. There are plenty to choose from, so focus on the services that will be most meaningful to your loved ones. Subscribing to a streamer costs practically no energy to produce, since it’s a non-material gift that’s all online and therefore doesn’t require manufacturing.
Subscribe to other online content
Have a loved one who loves to read? Purchase a subscription to an online magazine or audiobook service. Know someone who loves listening to music, but can’t stand commercials? Order an ad-free subscription to their favorite online music service. You’ll save a bundle by ordering a one-year subscription and save energy by ordering online without the need for manufacturing.
Purchase a membership
Has your loved one talked about something they’ve always wanted to do? Take a class…join a gym…start rock climbing? Purchase a membership and make their goal a reality! Signing up for a membership online doesn’t use any energy just like online subscriptions, and you may help your friend or family member discover a new favorite hobby!
Get energy-saving devices
We know we said “focus on non-material” gifts, but there’s just something special about unwrapping a present. Good thing we’ve got rebates on a host of popular items, including stocking stuffers, like advanced power strips and ENERGY STAR®certified Wi-Fi thermostats, to bigger items like washers, dryers and even Level-2 electric vehicle chargers! Not only do our rebates provide savings, but comfort all year long with other rebate options from door sweeps to furnace filters.
Give your loved ones something they will really appreciate over the holidays, and will help them save this season — and every season!
