Every holiday season we try and find ways to reflect on all that we have to be grateful for and find ways to help other people who are less fortunate than us. This has been an important part of our Christmas traditions for many, many years. There are a variety of different ways that we can help others during the holiday season…and all year round…from volunteering our time at our local food bank, to making toy donations at our children’s schools and more. One way that I love to spread the giving and gratitude spirit to others is by making purchases that help others in need. It is so simple to choose gifts that give back.
This year we have searched high and low for all the best Christmas gifts for tweens that give back and we’ve wrapped them up to share with you. Hopefully, this list will inspire you to spread the true spirit of Christmas with your tween – giving to other, sharing love and spreading hope.
