Hey guys, its that time of year again. Lets get this straight. Like most other men, I hate malls, crowds, and shopping last minute, so I'm gonna try and get it done before I go back home to Ontario on the 18th of december. I have approx a 250$ budget, which should be enough for the Sis, Mom, and Dad. So what are you guys getting family members? I'm at a loss right now, so any ideas are good ideas.

Cheers,

Dave (from snowy, cold Vancouver)

Starting a couple of years ago, I ceased giving 'goods' as Xmas gifts to my family. My family members are reasonably well-off, and they always talk about wanting to help the less fortunate during the holidays.

So ... I now go to the Red Cross website and make gift donations in my family members' names. It takes 1 credit card and about 15 minutes to handle 8 - 10 gift donations. Nice notification cards are sent to the recipients (be sure to have name / mailing address data on hand when ordering).

No crowds / no travel ... And - perhaps best of all - there's not a thing any recipient can complain about! .... :evil:

Before I went to Red Cross gift donations, I'd been in the habit of giving gift certificates. I always figured it was better to give 'em something they could use toward something they enjoy rather than take a chance on giving a gift that'd just collect dust ... :thinking:
