If you’re still stuck on the perfect gift idea for your friends and family, then perhaps it’s time to change up your holiday routine with the gift of giving back. Just think, how amazing would both of you feel if you were able to help someone in need on their behalf?

Surfing through the different options available, we stumbled across a great holiday gift catalogue from United Way that would allow us to do just that. While other charity catalogues allow you to purchase gifts like livestock and overseas disaster relief, with United Way’s Imagine Gift catalogue everything stays local, and goes right back into supporting the less fortunate in our own communities.

Don’t know what to get for mom or dad? Give a child a week of nutritious meals in their name. What about grandma? She’ll surely love the gift of meals and social events for seniors that would otherwise be spending the holidays alone! There’s truly something for everyone, with the following gifts representing just some of the options available.

Join the social conversation by hashtagging #ImagineThat, and make this holiday season the best one yet!
