3 Easy Gifts that Give Back
Make a difference this holiday season
If you?re still looking for ways to spread holiday cheer, buy the special people on your list a gift that benefits a worthy cause.
Here are three we?d feel glad--and gratified--to get.
1. Kiehl?s Set The beauty brand behind some of our cult-favorite products (how could we survive winter without a tub of whipped body butter?) has mastered the art of the charitable partnership with its limited-edition gift set ($45). Sales benefit Feeding America, a domestic hunger-relief charity. Available at major department stores and kiehls.com
2. OneHope Wine Wine is a predictable gift. But wine with a customized philanthropical bent? Now that's a thoughtful present. OneHope works with more than 200 charities, so you can simply pick a cause that best matches your giftee. Pet lover? Snag the Pinot for Paws ($49) set with proceeds benefitting the ASPCA. Green thumb? The Great Crate ($99) benefitting Save Our Planet will be a surefire hit. Available at onehopewine.com
3. Letterpress Calendar Keep print arts alive! This delightful calendar ($35) is produced each year by 12 artists at the Genesee Center for the Arts & Education in Rochester, New York. It?s a pleasure to pass the months with the calendar?s vibrant images, and you?ll help sustain the center?s mission of ?art for all people.? Available at etsy.com
