CHRISTMAS shopping lag? Why not dip into the catalogues and websites of greeting cards and gifts from organisations that make a difference. New Internationalist (newint.com.au) has an Ethical Living Guide with a fun array of Bollywood Kitsch ’n’ Kraft (beach bags, $20), while World Vision (worldvision.com.au/gifts) suggests ‘‘gifts of food and income’’ for needy communities, such as $45 for a market garden starter pack. Oxfam’s gift guide (oxfamshop.org.au) brims with handicrafts such as recycled paper trivets from Vietnam (pictured, $7.95). Tear Australia (usefulgifts.org) suggests donating to health and education projects, and Bush Heritage Australia (wildgifts.bushheritage.org.au) asks us to help protect indigenous animals, birds and habitats.
