Give Twice With Just One Gift: Gifts for Moms That Give to Others

I had a great time making my list of baby gifts that benefit others in need around the globe, but dare I say that I had more fun making this gift list for moms? Maybe it’s even. There are so many beautiful things to choose from, and so many organizations that do good work and will benefit from purchase of these items. There’s not a thing on this list that I would be disappointed to find under the tree on Christmas morning, and I hope you can find a little something special that you or a woman you’re giving to would love as well.
