Every year I pick a Christmas gift theme for my nieces and nephews. The journey from bacon flavored chapstick to Star Wars socks has brought me to 2020, where I’m a little more reflective of what this past year has taught me. So for this year’s theme I’m focusing on purpose and where I can give a little extra in the gifts I choose. Here are some ideas for a theme that feels a bit more meaningful.

  1. Rescuewicks candles and melts are hand poured in Pennsylvania. Their ingredients are clean, ethically sourced and never tested on animals. Rescuewicks donates 20% of your purchase to your choice of over 50 shelters, which you can select at checkout.

If you’d like to take an eco-conscious approach to how you gift, consider up-cycling your packaging from these shipped items to create your own wrapping paper! If you have any give-back gift ideas that represent something close to your heart, please share.
