Christmastime is a time of giving.
Here are some gift ideas which, while gifts, are not "stuff" . . .
give a membership to any type of museum, theater, zoo, botanical gardens . . .
tickets to a movie theater, restaurant, circus, concert, theme park . . .
an overnight stay at a bed and breakfast, state or national park inn, downtown hotel . . .
a class to learn a new skill such as sewing, welding, yoga, pottery . . .
You can donate to a charity with a dedication to your gift recipent . . .
If you or the gift recipient doesn't have a favorite charity, go to Just Give
where you can locate local charities, specific charities,
as well as Charity Collections such as Animals, Military, and the Environment.
Need help picking a responsible charitable organization?
Go to Charity Navigator which rates and reviews charities.
Have more time than money? Volunteer and dedicate your time to your gift recipent . . .
Help at a local food pantry, mission, or food bank.
Ring a bell for The Salvation Army.
There is always the gift of your time to your gift recipent
so they can relax while you clean, cook, babysit, or take care of other chores for them.
