From Conscientious Coffee Beans to Sustainably Sourced Skivvies

These gifts for the philanthropist are perfect for the person on your list who is more interested in giving than receiving. With Black Friday behind us, now is the perfect time to shop for gifts that give back. From ethically sourced teas to fair trade handbags, there are many gifts that support charitable causes across the world.

If the person on your list is concerned with fostering a more sustainable food chain, you might want to consider fair trade food products. For the coffee lover in your life, why not opt for an artisanal roast that helps support rural farming communities. If coffee is not an option, you can always purchase some superfood-infused chocolate bars made from ethically sourced ingredients.

If you're looking for a gift that provides a more tangible benefit, many companies operate according to the one-for-one business model. This means that for every product purchased, a second product is provided to a charitable organization. These products can include blankets for the homeless, markers for school children and even toothbrushes for those who lack access to consistent oral care.

Regardless of what cause you choose to support, these gifts for the philanthropist provide a wonderful way to give back this holiday season.
