A silk scarf, a safe birthing kit, or a spa basket are gift ideas that can also support her favorite cause. Check out these ideas from Huffington Post to meet that Sunday deadline.
The Animal Rescue Organization suggests a fair trade antique tote bag. Its purchase will fill 28 bowls of food for homeless animals. The International Rescue Committee will give a safe birthing kit to expectant women in crisis zones; they offer other gifts to help poor families. A fair trade Serenity silk scarf, handmade by women in northern India, is a gift idea from Women’s Peace Collection.
