Gift-Giving with Purpose

I'm inspired to give with purpose this year.  Snowflake mug full of coffee in hand, baby sleeping, here are some purposeful deals that I'm loving:

Buy a hate.  Change a life.
This a great organization with a fantastic story, for a great cause.   Blake actually lived w/ a couple of these guys in college, so we can personally verify that they are legit, and that the money does go to good.  PLUS:

{TOMS + Charity:Water}
Another fantastic (two) organizations, looking to help people get clean water.  (Many of you remember our well that is currently under construction thru charity:water).  Each pair of this particular shoe sold will help to fund 3 wells needing to be dug in Ethiopia.  Once the project is complete, a village of 540 people will have clean water!  Buy them here.

{Pottery Barn}
 Who doesn't love a personalized gift?  Sometimes these are the best ways to show someone that your gift to them was thought-out and just for them.  Just today, Pottery Barn is offering free monogramming on anything.  I'm eyeing a stocking for Brecken...

Or if you can't afford much:

{Coupon Book}

 A coupon book, customized just for you and your loved one.  Use Photoshop (or other similar program) to personalize, and upload the finished product to MyPublisher (or similar website) for super cheap.

{Purpose-Driven Life}
 What says purpose more than the advocate of purpose himself: Rick Warren.  This is a GREAT book for a college student, new Christian friend, or stocking stuffer for any reader in your life.  I love all that Rick Warren promotes.

Anyway, those are my ideas on giving with purpose this year.  Consider making at least one gift you give this year have some sort of purpose that has meaning to you and your family.
