There are people out there who are great at gift giving. And there are others who are not. These people always seem to find themselves struggling during this time of year, when you’re expected to give presents to close family members, distant cousins, friends, co-workers, boyfriends and girlfriends.
While there are dozens of gift options available, there are some companies that are charitable with their profits, donating them to good causes and helping out people in need.
