Lil Gift Guide: Gifts For Kids That Give Back

'Tis better to give than to receive, but there's nothing wrong with doing a bit of both. Teach tots the importance of charity and good will with gifts that give back to society on the whole. It's never too early to start instilling a sense of community!

Clockwise from top left: Bloomingdale's Gund "Magical Night" Bear and Book ($23) gifts tots an adorably snuggly bear and a Christmas adventure story by Michael Storrings while donating $8 from each sale to The Child Mind Institute, an organization dedicated to providing mental health care to tots around the world. This handknit wool penguin hat ($20) keeps lil heads warm while benefiting the world's rainforests. Kids will love the sense of security they feel with the Linus blanket ($36), while seriously ill tots receive similar blankets through the Project Linus organization. Converse's create your own sneakers ($65) benefits Project(RED), to help eliminate the spread of AIDS in Africa. The Casey Kit ($200) allows tots to adopt a sea turtle, and gifts the kid a plush sea turtle, a cookie cutter, an oven mitt, and an adoption certificate, all while protecting the animals from dirty fishing methods.
