Not sure what to get that special someone? The crossing guard? The neighbor?
How about the gift of charity. The Good Card and TisBest Charity Gift Cards are like regular gift cards, only the recipient can choose the charity to donate to.
The Good Card lets your recipient choose from 1.8 million charities.
TisBest lets you choose from 250 charities and organizations.
You purchase the gift card (depending on gift card organization, it can be delivered via email, your computer or via plastic card). The recipient chooses where the money will go - on his/her own time.
There are small fees associated with each (read the fine print), but they look reasonable to me.
