Gifts that Keep on Giving

American Way
ISSUE: December 1, 2007

Strange, the holidays. They seem to be all about giving - you're shopping for gifts, right? - but sometimes the warm fuzzies of bestowing get swallowed up by consumeristic fervor. Remedy: Choose gifts that not only show your loved ones that you love them, but that benefi t the less fortunate too. After all, you have to buy something for Aunt Agatha, so why not make it something with a conscience? These are our favorites. - Tracy Staton

Philosophy is offering a selection of charitable gifts this year. Message in a Bottle shower gel - mineral-enriched and with a fragrance reminiscent of rainwater and the sea - benefits the Rainforest Foundation. Peony- scented Joyful Heart benefi ts the Joyful Heart Foundation, which helps sexual-assault victims. And Inner Grace benefits the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. $20 each for 16 ounces.
