Final Christmas List – No Delivery Required

December 20, 2006

Don’t have a snowball’s chance in Hades of getting that special something delivered in time for the holidays? This is for you.

  • Download a personalized image from this site with a nice seasonal greeting from Mr. Norris or a duo with Julio Iglasis. Pop it in a frame, wrap it in some newspaper, and hey presto, you’re off the hook.

Season's greetings from Chuck

  • Two great “buy nothing” lists of creative alternatives to the usual gift ideas: Buy Nothing Christmas #1, Buy Nothing Christmas #2.
  • If giving to charity works for you or the person you’re giving to, here are the FreshDudes‘ charity picks:

Daniel: Worldvision: Helps children reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty

Jeff: Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Canada: Raises funds to support research into finding a cure for diabetes

Joe: World Wildlife Fund Canada: Conserves species and habitats at risk; addresses global threats

Kathy: Room to Read: Partners with local communities to establish schools and libraries

Levi: Right to Play: Creates a healthier, safer world for children through the power of sport & play

Mike: Sierra Legal Defence Fund: Enforces the laws that safeguard our environment

Don’t let this happen to you. Let your fellow procrastinators…uh…hard workers know if you have any great last minute, relationship-saving gift ideas of your own.

I hope you all have a peaceful, happy and healthy time during whatever you may be celebrating this month – Bathtub Party Day, Christmas, Eid’ul-Adha, Hanukkah, Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Kwanzaa, Omisoka, St. Lucia Day, Winter Solstice, Wright Brothers Day or whatever else I may have forgotten 🙂
