I absolutely love starting off the holiday season as early as possible. If I find a great gift for someone well before December 1st, I just go ahead and buy it. I think this is because I truly embrace the thought that giving is better than receiving. Not that receiving isn’t pretty nice, too, but there’s something about shopping during the holiday season that can bring out your inner fairy godmother—wanting to find just the perfect thing for everyone on your list.
While you may have already bought everything for the man in your life and you know the perfect gift for mami, there are plenty of other stocking stuffers and wrapped presents to buy ASAP. This year, though, you don’t just want to end up with the same old—which is where these genius gifts that give back come in. For any of your friends and familia that are, ya know, human, everyone can appreciate chocolates, wine, a watch or even a cute little wristlet that all give back to a worthy cause. If you’re feeling extra generous this holiday season (and, trust me, 2017 could use some extra generosity), then start here with these 16 gifts that donate proceeds to many worthy causes.
Chocolates for a Cause
You’re probably going to get chocolates for somebody on your Holiday Gift List, so why not go for these that are not only made with imported African ingredients but also benefit Relief International in Darfur. $20, Compartes.com.
