For the person on your list who already has everything, why not give them a gift that gives back by donating to a charity on their behalf. Here are a few we love.
88Bikes donates bicycles to children around the world who face hardships such as poverty and war. For $88, you can donate a bike in a friend’s name and make a child immeasurably happy. Read our story on the organization to find out just how huge of an impact a bike can have on a child’s life.
DonorsChoose.org lets you give to classrooms in need, to help make sure that kids have the essentials they need to learn and teachers have the tools required for teaching.
Share Our Strength aims to end childhood hunger in American by 2015. Your contribution will help ensure that families have access to food that’s healthy and affordable. And if you give by December 31, your tax-deductible gift will be matched, dollar for dollar.
What’s your favorite organization or charity to give to?

Confession: I haven’t started my holiday shopping. Nope, not at all. The thought of braving the mall at this time of year turns me into a Grinch, which is why I have a feeling I’ll be making most of my present purchases online. One of my shopping destinations is CambriaCove.com, which is seriously a gift giver’s paradise. Their selections are thoughtful, beautiful and useful, like these cheerful pocket journals. And if you need more inspiration, our holiday gift guide will help you choose the perfect present for even your pickiest have-it-all-already recipient.
Any other site suggestions for last-minute online shoppers?
