We have to do that holiday shopping anyway, why not help animals while we’re at it? Many charities offer unique, beautiful and functional animal & pet themed gift ideas for anyone on your list. Doing all of our shopping through animal charities can bring the spirit back into the holidays, when otherwise we may become disenchanted with the effort and expense.
You can also give your local organizations a call if they don’t offer online shopping. Many have t-shirts, calendars or other ‘swag’ for sale to raise funds, like our BC SPCA has. Others bring in items specifically for the Christmas season only, such as pet calendars.
If you can’t find anything to purchase for that special someone, you can always make a donation in their name instead.
