Charitable donations in lieu of gifts?

This is something we've done on and off with my family for the past few years and I actually prefer it to presents.  We agree as a group that we are going to support certain charities and then we all make donations on behalf of each other.

Would you do something like that or does not receiving and giving gifts dampen the experience for you?

I'm doing exactly that this year! on Dec 09, 2010 @ 01:38 pm

I've been asking my friends if it's okay to donate to charity in their name instead of buying them a present... it's a little awkward sometimes cause it's like "how can I say no?". I'm planning on giving them a choice from The Hunger Site because they have pages full of great places you can donate to.

So far it's been okay, I think. Hopefully it all works out ok!
