This collection of gift ideas includes items that would make lovely gifts, but also have the added benefit of encompassing some kind of charitable twist.

The result of you purchasing any of these products as gifts could be anything from a portion of profits being donated to charity to a disadvantaged child receiving a pair of shoes or a computer.
