If you are turning your attention to Christmas shopping this week, you may be interested in a recent Shots entry on alternative gift ideas. Suggesting that people consider charitable donations in honor of someone on their Christmas list, writer Eliza Barclay compiled a short list of interesting global-health gift ideas, including cooking stoves through Oxfarm America and bicycles for community health workers through UNICEF.

And though not mentioned here, there's always the option of giving to disease-oriented non-profits - an uncle who has just had a heart attack, for example, might appreciate a donation to the American Heart Association in his name.
