Gifts with a Purpose

My family has a special tradition Christmas morning, to go up to the tree and pick out a gift for someone else to open. Every year, there is at least one that I am excited to watch the recipient open; to see their eyes light up when they see it. Here are some ways to bring that same joy to others with your gift purchases, while still having something beautiful and unique to wrap.
