Over on Carla's blog on her sidebar there is information about giving World Vision gifts as Christmas presents. I thought that was the neatest thing, as I do have a couple of friends I buy for that honestly they don't really need anything and I always feel unsure if they will use what I normally get. However giving them a gift card and letting them choose what they want to "buy" for someone else in the world makes perfect sense to my mind.
Is this something you do at Christmas or birthday's? Also do you know of other organizations that do this?
On Monday I pottered around the house, it was a gorgeous day and I was able to get the laundry dried outside and not light the fire until after lunch. Mind you it cooled off a lot when the sun went down. For the time of year we are having super weather.
