The world is a tough place right now. With kids and families losing their lives and homes, we are not in the best of the Christmas vibes that we had planned for. So here’s a gifting guide to remind us that we can spread hope and spread some hope to the ones who need it more than we do. Don’t buy our products or any products. But if you do, gift it to bring a smile to someone and let them know you are there for them.
Here is a gift guide, a handy list that is less about buying new things and more about being there for someone and spreading hope!
