    This year Scholz & Volkmer has once again created an own Christmas campaign: Time rather than stuff, a concept that is designed to give our consumer society food for thought.

    Not keen on giving your brother a DVD for Christmas for the fifth time, your mother a cookbook that ends up unused in her kitchen cupboard or your little cousin the umpteenth cuddly toy that will collect dust on a shelf?

    Before giving your loved ones their third cell phone or sixth cookbook that ends up unused in a cupboard, give them something personal - time with you. The "Time rather than stuff" project makes suggestions for great personal gifts that you can give your friends and family without falling back on the same old gift ideas.

    Die Handelskette Real verkauft Produkte, die zwar einen Wert haben, aber kein Geld kosten? Klingt komisch, ist aber so: In der Vorweihnachtszeit gibt es bei Real Geschenkkarten von "Zeit statt Zeug", einer Initiative, die sich dafür einsetzt, statt überflüssiger Konsumgüter lieber gemeinsam verbrachte Zeit zu verschenken.
