The holidays are often a season for giving, not just to friends and family but also to people in need.
Some gifts allow you to check both those gift-wrapped boxes at once.
Whether you give a donation to a nonprofit in a friend's name or pick up a trinket crafted by artisans in developing countries, there is no shortage of options for presents with social impact.
