Lust List Gift Guide: Gifts That Give Back Edition

With Thanksgiving coming this week, I like to take a minute to reflect on all the things in my life I’m grateful for.  Doing so makes me realize how lucky I really am.  I’m healthy and happy, what more do you really need in life?  That being said, a lot of people aren’t so lucky.  So for this Lust List Gift Guide, I’m focusing on products that give back.  All of the products listed give some percentage of their proceeds to a charity they support.  We can help others while still giving great gifts!  How cool is that?!
