I am a member of Bzz and they have something called the Frog Pond, where you can view different websites.
I have seen a couple of neat sites, where I think they have some neat gifts for people who are hard to buy for. I wish I had seen these a month or two ago, as I think I would have got some of these things for some of the people.
The first site is Oxfam America I mean you can buy a dozen chicks for $40, here is Oxfam Canada , Oxfam Britain and Oxfam Australia For your own country, just google Oxfam and your country.
Another neat site is called Mokugift where you can plant a tree. You pick a continent, then pick a country, then pick how many trees, at a dollar a tree, its a cheap gift.
For those of you who can afford it there is One Laptop Per Child Foundation where you can give a child in a developing country a laptop for $199 USD.
Please let me know any other sites where you can buy a "gift" that will help out others..........
