What to get for those hard-to-shop-for-people

(NC) Giving holiday gifts should be a joy. But the pressure to find that perfect gift for some of the people in your life can add anxiety to an already stressful time of year. Instead of wandering the mall in search of inspiration, many Canadians turn to not-for-profit organizations for meaningful gifts that take the stress out of holiday shopping, such as the ones offered by Plan International Canada’s Gifts of Hope program. They provide goods and essentials services to children and families in need. And there are many unique gift options to choose from, potentially solving what to get for those hard-to-shop-for people on your gift list. For the G.O.A.T. in your lifeThe gift of a goat to a family in need is the perfect solution for the person who’s the “Greatest of All Time” in your life. It may be the most unique gift you give this year, and it can be life-changing for the recipients. Goat’s milk can provide important nutrients for growing children, and the sale of a goat’s offspring means income to pay for essentials like education. Donating a goat costs $80, and you receive a tax receipt for the full amount. For the woman who is changing the worldFinding a gift that’s about unleashing the power in every girl to change the world and the lives of those around them is not as hard to find as you might think. A $50 Girl Power gift provides nourishment, education and protection for girls around the world. It helps create safe schools and helps ensure that girls are not forced into early marriages. Each donation is matched eight times by government or foundation partners, so your gift delivers $450 in value. For the teacher helping kids thriveA memorable and cost-effective teacher’s gift is a donation of daily meals for an entire school. This gift supplies school kitchens with cookware, nutritious ingredients like rice and beans, and clean water for cooking and washing, helping to ensure good nutrition for students. A $10 donation is matched five times for a $60 value. Plus, there is an option to download a printable gift card for your child to give to their teacher.
