alternative christmas gifts

Are you tired of the over-commercialization of Christmas? Or just don't know what to give that person who has everything? Take a look at Alternative Gifts International. Your gift will go to someone who really needs it, and you'll get cards to give your friends and relatives, letting them know the details about the gift you've given in their name. I've participated with AGI for a few years now, and many of my relatives appreciate the AGI cards more than any other gifts.

For other Christmas giving opportunities, take a look at the gift catalogs from World Vision (hat tip to Shane Raynor of Wesley Blog) and the Heifer Project.

If you have someone you really must give a gift to, but you still want to benefit industrious people in poorer nations, consider buying presents from A Greater Gift (hat tip to LutheranChik, who has a lot of other good suggestions in her blog) or Ten Thousand Villages.

Got any other suggestions? I'd love to hear them!

Would you mind if I posted this on my blog in it's entirety? This is very good information.

Monk -

Feel free to post as much of it as you'd like.

I'll second that - hear, hear!

I particularly like the World Vision catalogue. Where else can you give a family a goat for Christmas - and know it won't be 're-gifted'!
