We are always searching for those perfect holiday gifts for everyone in our lives, and hoping that they won't be returned. Jennifer Durbin, author of Party Planning Tips for the Clueless Chick shares her recommendations for gifts that give back to charity and the best gifts inspired by your hometown or favorite team.
Gifts that Give Back
GooseWaddle: GooseWaddle, our favorite and most luxurious baby blanket company (which just so happens to be based in NC) is making a difference through their Buy 1, Give 1 campaign. For every blanket they sell, a receiving blanket is donated to a child in need. Is there anything better than giving a beautiful blanket to your favorite little one and a blanket to a child in need? Sounds like the perfect reason to buy two.
