More Gift Ideas

Afraid that the bacon alarm clock would be a fire hazard?

Well how about trying something safer, like a bottle of deworming tablets?

Check out NPR’s list of 5 Public Health Gifts for the Person Who Has Everything.”

Does Uncle Bob really need another pair of socks this Christmas? Maybe he’d be more pleased with a bottle of deworming tablets from UNICEF dedicated in his name. For $36, the pills will prevent 994 kids from getting intestinal worms, the agency says.

Other organizations such as OXFAM and Mercy Corp are also providing their own line of gifts, such as breastfeeding classes in Indonesia or cooking stoves. These kinds of holiday philanthropic gift-giving have become more popular in recent years as a way to tap into your gift-giving mentality (or confusion about what to get Uncle Bob).

As Scrooge taught us, there’s no better gift this Christmas season than helping those in need.
