Gifts of life

No Christmas tree required.

Unicef has a slew of inspiring gifts to donate on behalf of those who already have everything. From wells and bikes to vaccines and baby blankets, Unicef’s Gifts of Magic and Gifts of Life arrive where they’re needed most, and the folks on your holiday shopping list get a nice certificate to remind them of their vicarious benevolence. For $15 you can give pencils for an entire school – now that’s a great stocking stuffer.
