Give the Gift of Goat

This is one of the coolest gift ideas I've heard of and is a sure bet for the person in your life who has everything. It's Oxfam Unwrapped!

You can choose to help people in developing nations with a pretty wide variety of life-tools. For just $45 you can give a sheep which helps women start their own businesses by selling textiles and milk. $25 will buy building tools, $135 will build a water pump, and for $1,000 you can build a shelter.

Oxfam works in 26 developing countries around the world. They help villages learn to sustain agriculture and business as they educate villagers about health and human rights. Your contribution may or may not actually be used to buy a camel or a can of worms. Oxfam uses the money where they need it the most. However, you do get a nifty little magnet and a certificate which make a very thoughtful gift.
