7 Surprisingly Cool Gifts That Give Back In A Big Way

We open the floodgates on our bank accounts and throw a whole bunch of money at a whole bunch of stores, all in the name of gifting. If you can direct even a little of that money toward deserving companies that give back to the communities around them, you’ll be doing an extra good deed that we’re sure your giftee will appreciate.

1. Parks Project Yosemite National Park Pine Candle.

With its woodsy pine scent, this candle smells like all the best parts of Yosemite National Park. Your purchase goes right back into the park itself—for every candle sold, Parks Project restores one meter of trail in Yosemite. Parks Project has a whole collection of candles that smell like different national parks around the country, so if Yosemite isn’t it for you, check out Big Sur, Joshua Tree, or one of the other parks instead.
