Do your Christmas shopping and give gifts that give back for under $30 each with our sponsor, the American Diabetes Association's Gift of Hope!
Black Friday is over and holiday shopping is in full swing. That means that every store and mall in the nation has a full parking lot and long lines at the check out stand. This year, skip the craziness by shopping right on your computer or mobile device to not only find great gifts for everyone on your list, but also to help out a great cause.
One great place to find gifts that give back is the American Diabetes Association Gift of Hope program. The Gift of Hope program is an annual Holiday Gift catalog whose funds go to support the mission of the American Diabetes Association. The ADA funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes.
The Gift of Hope program began in 1971 when a group of parents raised money for diabetes research by selling holiday greeting cards. The program evolved from there and has raised over $26 million. Did I mention you can skip the mall, shop online and help out a great cause?!
The Gift of Hope catalog has a ton of affordable gifts for everyone on your list.
Festive Felt Advent Wall Calendar: The ADA sent us this gorgeous wall calendar and it's an heirloom in the making! You can see that it's HUGE. My kids think it's about the coolest thing ever. This would make a great gift for a family to start a new Christmas countdown tradition.
Money Soap: My son HATES to wash his hands, but he loves to earn money! Each bar of money soap has a fake $1, $5, $10, $20 or $50 bill rolled up inside and visible, it's all the luck of the draw. This is a great stocking stuffer or gift for anyone!
Home Sweet Home Fragrance Warmer: I love this Mason jar inspired warmer that melts scented wax. A great gift for mom, sister, or girlfriend.
Quick and Easy Cookbooks Set: A few years ago I made an Apple Cake and Pumpkin Pancakes out of a cookbook from the American Diabetes Association and they are still favorite recipes. I love this set of Quick and Easy Cookbooks for getting healthy meals on the table. Don't be afraid of them if you aren't diabetic. We still use our ADA cookbooks even though we aren't!
Sonoma Automatic Wine Opener with Foil Cutter: This is a great gift for anyone who loves to entertain! The opener easily opens a bottle of wine.
As you can see, the American Diabetes Association Gift of Hope catalog truly has something for everyone on your list! Head over and get your holiday shopping done without leaving home and giving back to a great cause.
