    Supporting a charity these days doesn’t always mean just a donation in someone’s honor. Though that in itself is an admirable gift, there are other options now as well.

    With the age of the internet, many charities now have their own stores with merchandise that’s wonderful in a number of ways. For one, it means that you can support the cause of your choice and still have a gift to wrap up for the recipient. For another, the gifts often come with a message, advertising for the charity itself. Items such as magnets and lunch bags, bracelets and socks, can help the charity advertise. Whether for breast cancer research, saving the rainforest, or buying food for shelter animals, your gift can not only support the charity, but can help pass on their message of need and/or of hope.

    This makes a great gift for just about anyone on your list. There are even options that would make such a gift palatable to a child, such as wildlife charities that allow you to “adopt” an individual whale or wolf or other endangered creature. Kits come with photos and stickers and all sorts of goodies that kids will love. At the same time, it’s a great way to spark a child’s interest in the world around them and the role that they can play in making it a great place to live. Charitable donations also make great gifts for people who have everything, as well as for those hard-to-shop-for folks on your list, and we all have a few of those.

    We all have charities that are near and dear to our heart**. Whether giving to the charity of your choice, or a charity that means something to your recipient (or why not both?), it’s a feel-good approach to gift giving. Why not give it a try the next time you’re in the market for a present?
