For the person who has everything . . . don't give them anything. Or, rather, give them a voucher for a gift that's going to someone who has hardly anything.
Oxfam is offering such gifts on its web site and they include
- mango saplings
- counselling sessions
- text books
- mosquito nets
- a goat
- a donkey
- a toilet
If you're not ready for Christmas shopping yet, bookmark this post. It's my Christmas gift to you.
