There are tons of wonderfully developed gift guides out there for challenged gift givers such as myself.  While I'm grateful for the thought and time that goes into listing the perfect present for that hard to buy for uncle or the adolescent teen in your life who swears anything "cool" or "dope" has nothing to do with you.  Today, I thought I'd put FS in the mix and create a list of trendy gifts that give back to people in need.  So if the bag you'd thought they'd love or shoes you swore were "so in" get tossed to the back of the closet come 2013--you will know with any of these product purchases that at least you made a difference in the life of another human.
