Give Twice With Just One Gift: Baby Gifts That Give to Others

The more I travel and observe how others live, the harder time I have making lists that will just add more to what we have while so many we know of and even know personally will live with less. Still, it’s fun to give during the holiday season, and fun to receive, too. That’s why gifts purchased from places that will give part or all of their proceeds to others is a perfect fit for our family. We can give beautiful gifts to those we love and at the same time know that someone else is being taken care of, too. It’s a win-win, and the internet makes it simple to find options to fit everyone on your list. Today, Thursday, and Friday, I’ll be listing my favorite gifts that give to charities whenever you make a purchase. Today I’ll start with babies, who are, in my opinion, the most fun to shop for. Check back in on Thursday for gifts that moms will love, and on Friday for gifts for dads.
