...or a goat, or a bag of cowshit, or a hole in the ground...

Seriously, how many of us actually want the useless 'stuff' we're going to get from well-meaning friends and relatives this Xmas?
Do you really want another novelty olive-peeler from Aunt Gladys this year?

But they're socially obligated to give something, right?
And so are you.

A charity gift card fulfills that obligation, is quick, easy, more fun than a novelty olive-peeler, and doesn't clutter up the attic for decades to come.

Ok, so the link above's probably not the most convenient for Northern Hemisphere types, but Oxfam has branches everywhere, and there are other organizations offering similar gifts.

So, don't get 'stuff'ed this Xmas, get crabs!

Thanks for the tip. Here's the equivalent site for "America" (not sure if that means US or US + Canada): https://www.oxfamamericaunwrapped.com/all-gifts/

Oxfam gets great ratings from charitynavigator.org.
We've been giving for years.

You can also protect against malaria for $3/net.
