You know who they are, the person who says "I don't want any gifts, please!" Honor their wishes and get them the gift of compassion and good will.

Heifer International
Gift a goat (or other charitable gift) for a family in need

Oxfam Unwrapped
Invest in a small business, to help someone get started in the right direction

Center for Biological Diversity
Support their cause by making a donation in the recipient's name

The Nature Conservancy
Adopt an acre in the US or plant trees in Brazil in their name

Environmental Working Group
Get a Pollution Solutions Holiday Gift Bag when you donate

World Wildlife Fund
Adopt an endangered animal (symbolically, of course)

Farm Sanctuary
Adopt a farm animal like Susie Moo, here (you don't get to take her home)

Global Giving
A gift card so the recipient can decide where their donation will go
(Choose the email version to save resources!)

Or find their favorite cause on Charity Navigator.
