Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Gifts That Give Back

Gifts are so much fun to give and receive, but knowing your gift is doing good beyond just yourself … that’s even better than just what’s under the tree. Every item in my Gifts That Give Back holiday guide supports efforts like clean water, underserved kids, multiple sclerosis, and cancer research. These gifts will make you proud to give, your recipient happy to receive, and the world just a little bit better in the process.
