Everyone has those hard-to-buy-for folks on the Christmas shopping list — But does Grandma really need another pair of decorative socks?

If the answer is “no,” then start thinking outside the box at gift-giving time and put something under the tree that’s as meaningful for the person who gives as the one who receives.

CBS Detroit has put together a list of top charitable organizations that have opportunities for giving.

Have an animal lover to buy for? Consider gifting a Detroit Zoo membership with A.D.O.P.T.S. (Animals Depend on People to Survive) gift package that includes a plush animal, photo, fact sheet, personalized adoption certificate and greeting card. Prices range from $40 to $1,000. Or, visit Zoofari Market on your next trip to the zoo, purchase a plush, make a donation of $15, and receive a certificate of adoption. The gift of A.D.O.P.T.S. helps to improve the zoo animals’ habitats and provides veterinary treatment.

The Michigan Humane Society offers Christmas cards, T-shirts, pets travel gear, personalized items like picture frames, pet calendars, water bottles, and toy boxes are all available for the pet lovers in the family. See a list of holiday fundraising items HERE.
