One of the reasons I love the holiday season is because I love shopping and giving gifts to my friends and family. Compiling a gift guide is also one of my favorite kinds of blog posts to create. This year, I decided to make my holiday gift guide one with an altruistic focus. I’ve picked a variety of gifts that give not only to the recipient but to a variety of nonprofits and causes.
