Next on the holiday gift guide is a group I like to give to: strangers!

That’s right! There are so many ways to give back to the community, some of my favorites are:

1) ASPCA- this doesn’t just have to be around the holidays! The ASPCA are always accepting donations, whether it’s time, monetary, or supplies that they’re in need of.

2) Panera Bread trees- every year Panera Bread decorates a Christmas tree in the front of their stores. There are ornaments on them with requests from children who are in the hospital. If you take the ornament, you are committing to buying that gift for that child.

3) Local soup kitchen- there’s nothing more sacred than a shared meal and some conversation. Head over to your local soup kitchen and serve the folks who are there. Go a step further and join a group of folks for a meal and conversation!

Last, and certainly not least, here are some ideas you can gift to yourself!
