Some of my favorite gifts to give are ones that help give back to others.  I think it makes the gift extra special and gives a story for you to tell the recipient!  When I started to look for gifts to include in this guide, I was amazed at how many retailers that had entire sections of their website dedicated to charitable gifts.
