Hello friends, family, and stalkers,
It has been so crazy around these parts lately! (I know, I say this alllll the time. But it really is!)
I have barely had time to get into the Christmas spirit this year with all the nasty homework and stress pressed upon me, but I wanted to take a little time out to talk about....

PRESENTS! of course :)
But not just ANY presents. I want to talk about giving gifts that keep on giving. Yes, that extremely insightful and deep sentence is the thesis of this blog post.
I love giving/getting gifts that not only are fun to get, but also help other people. Here are some of my top picks for gifts that keep on giving:

Toms Shoes

Not only are these adorable and comfortable, for every pair you buy another pair is given to a child in need of shoes.

Invisible Children Apparel

Invisible Children is a really amazing organization working to end the war in Uganda and child soldiers. The proceeds of these purchases go to help them do just that!

Earthlust Water Bottle

This extremely cute and functional water bottle gives 50% of its proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Penguin Classics Book Collection

This redesigned collection of classic Penguin books gives 50% of its proceeds to the fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Beads for Life

These are handmade beads from Uganda that help support health care, job training, and affordable housing for local communities there. You can also buy premade necklaces, bracelets, and earrings!

Aren't you in the mood for giving now? I definitely am. I would also like to give all of my homework away as well. I'll let you know how that pans out...
Happy Holidays!
