Gift Guide 2016: Gifts That Give Back

As I wrap up my gift guides for this years holiday season I wanted to focus on giving back to others. Giving back to charity has always has always been a big passion of mine! I think when you are able to give back to others it helps to remind you of how lucky you are. I have posted all these gift guides over the past few weeks to help you with your holiday shopping but the holidays are not all about the gifts. The holidays are about giving back and I think sometime we forget that. If you are reading my blog and can't afford to give a gift gifts this year just spending time with others is a gift. Sometimes the simplest gestures make the best gifts. Another idea to help give back this holiday season is to purchase a gift that gives back in some way. These products below are so cute and the companies help with some amazing causes. As the holidays are right around the corner just keep in mind that sometimes it is not about the gifts you give but the memories you make!
