RAMP’S LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
We’ve all been there. Standing in the mall, waiting for the stampede to pass, rummaging through clock radios and tube socks in a desperate attempt to find something, anything that resembles a last minute gift for our loved ones.
If you’re still procrastinating on holiday shopping, you’re among 30% of Canadians that don’t purchase their gifts until the week of Christmas. Sure, you’ll find something and it’s the thought that counts, right? But maybe your friends can do without that Michael Bublé Christmas album.
Last minute gift-giving is stressful and worrying about getting the wrong gift is even worse. The holidays should be about more than piles of useless junk, so back away from that fruitcake, put down the Justin Bieber slippers and step out of that mall.
This Christmas, instead of getting caught up in a sea of retail madness, why not give the gift that 64% of Canadians prefer receiving? Let’s be honest, charitable giving instead of a last minute shop ‘til you drop mad dash sounds pretty appealing AND receiving a gift that helps others is preferred by over half of Canadians.
Not sure how to give a charitable gift? These resources make it quick and easy so that you can get back to sipping on egg nog, roasting your chestnuts, and spending time with those that matter most.
