Christmas Day will be here this Sunday, so right about now you might be in need of some last-minute gifts. There is still some time to shop online and even sneak in some Christmas Eve deliveries. Plus, there’s always the digital gifts route.
You can still order from Amazon and have select gifts physically arrive by Christmas Eve (see details below). There’s also plenty of digital gifts to give: You can also gift ebooks, MP3 music, apps, digital comics, and video game downloads; send a gift card electronically; or make a charitable donation in the recipient’s name. Either email the recipient their gift, or print up an e-card and hand it to them. Take a look at our various Gift Guides for inspiration.
Do you Like that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you know you are helping a good cause? Are you a gamer? Well, if you’re a Steam user, let me direct your attention to the Humble Bundle from THQ.
For the small price of PAY WHAT YOU WANT, you can get your hands on six (or seven) top notch games from THQ. You can also choose to send some or ALL of the money you pay for this Humble Bundle to charity. The standard Humble Bundle consists of Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon, and three Company of Heroes games (the original CoH, Opposing Fronts, and Tales of Valor). Does none of this tickle your giving spirit? Well, if you should decide to donate more than the ‘average’ amount (which is currently sitting at around six dollars), you will also get a copy of Saints Row: The Third.
Mark Millar, creator of many of the most talked about comic books of recent memory including Kick-Ass, Nemesis, Old Man Logan, and Civil War, has posted an interesting auction on Ebay for his next creation, Superior. In this auction, Millar has left it to fans and do-gooders alike to name the title character’s secret identity, all in the name of charity.
In the past, Millar has held auctions for roles in Kick-Ass and Nemesis on behalf of special needs units in a school where his brother, Dr. Bobby Millar, has tirelessly raised money for many handicapped children, and the Superior auction is no exception.
