'Tis the season to give and also give back. This year, you can spread a little extra holiday cheer (and earn some major karma points) by presenting your family and friends with something from this shopping list of holiday gifts that give back. 

It's time to put together your list of Hanukkah and Christmas gift ideas for your friends and family. And since you're already in the giving spirit, why not pick presents that also give back to the rest of the world? All of the charity gifts on this list give back in some way - either to our furry friends, environmental projects, or families in need all over the world. 

Charitable gifts are a great two-for-one idea. While you're buying an awesome Bird & Stone Awali Bracelet for your sister, you're also helping women in Kitale, Kenya. The purchase of a pair of Bombas socks means a homeless shelter also gets a pair of socks. And how awesome is it that you can purchase a "FEED" bag and literally feed a family? Check out the provided links to see exactly how you can pick up all of the gifts on this list!

So before you buy mom a boring necklace or a plain-old blanket from who knows where for your cousin, check out our list of holiday gifts that give back! Up-vote the one that makes you feel like the greatest give-back gift giver ever!
