5 Companies That Are Redefining the Gift of Giving

Twice As Warm

“Buy one, give one” is the model at Twice As Warm, and those numbers keep growing. During the organization’s first winter of operation, it donated 210 winter hats, scarves, and gloves to needy people in its home base community of Washington, D.C. These cozy, American-made accessories include chenille gloves, striped beanies, and marled, chunky-knit infinity scarves.

Chocolate, wine, and gift cards may be obvious choices for your next present, but they probably won’t give you that fuzzy feeling of knowing you nailed a gift. Instead of opting for a run-of-the mill present, make a lasting impression with an item that performs double duty by providing philanthropic donations or adventurous experiences.
