    I dislike clothes shopping, but I LOVE trying to find a gift that fits the recipient. Even with charitable donations, it’s nice to match the donation to an organization that means something to the other person. Favourite charities include Nothing But Nets which buys bed nets to help prevent malaria mosquitoes from biting (https://nothingbutnets.net/) and Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders, providing non-partisan medical aid in conflict zones).

    Craft shows are wonderful places to seek out interesting gifts and support artisans at the same time. Handmade soaps aren’t expensive and are always appreciated for their wonderful fragrances. For guys, who are notoriously difficult to buy for, try a barbecue meat rub or a gourmet hot sauce.

    For people who don’t need more stuff, gift certificates to the movies, a restaurant or a show are great, as is a membership to a local museum.

    So many possibilities, so little time … and money!
