Traditionally a time to help others, the holidays offer an ideal opportunity to reach out to those in need. That's why we love these gifts that give back. Several of the brands we’ve noted here have teamed up with charities to match products purchased or donate a portion of their proceeds. Not only will these fabulous picks make the person on your shopping list happy, you'll also be doing a good deed!
