Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts That Give Back

Gift Guide Gifts That Give Back Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts That Give BackWhat’s better than giving someone a gift they’ll love? How about giving great gifts that also benefit worthy causes? The Animal Rescue Site shop makes it possible.


If you haven’t heard of it, I encourage everyone to check out The Animal Rescue Site shop. Proceeds from every sale go to animal rescue. Each item lists how many bowls of food it funds. I particularly love the NOVICA in association with National Geographic section. It features work by artisans from all throughout the world. Not only are you purchasing a handmade item and helping animals, but you’re also supporting the work of these artists. They sell a wide variety of gift-worthy items, including the selection below:


1. Garnet Drop Earrings – KHUN BOOM, Thailand

Simple, elegant long hoops with garnet stone

2. Women’s Batik Robe, ‘Hibiscus Red’ - NYOMAN NADRI, Indonesia

3. Hammock, ‘Atlantis’ - Mexico

5. Snoozing Tuxedo Cat - NENGAH SUDARSANA, Indonesia
