It's the season for chaos and consumerism, and it's double the craziness if you're planning to host friends and family. Between cooking, decorating, gift-buying and card-giving, it can be tough to remember what this time of year is really about.
So if Black Friday and Cyber Monday have left you with a weeklong headache, we have the shopping holiday for you. #GivingTuesday is a day where we can pause to think about giving to others. Here is a batch of goodies that will help with your holiday hosting duties — or work as gifts! — while also supporting worthy causes. A win-win worthy of a holiday hashtag.
