Are You Looking 4 Gifts that Give Back??

It's the season of giving....there are many, many gift choices out there for you choose from. But perhaps you are looking for a more meaningful present or socking stuffer this year. Perhaps a gift that also gives back to your community or helps someone in need? Well, this holiday season IKEA has a few great gift ideas with giving back in mind!! After all, what could be better than a gift of contribution during the holiday season?

Here are some great give and get back gift options IKEA has to offer this holiday season.......

1. IKEA Soft Toys: For each lovable, huggable soft toy purchased from November 1 through December 24, IKEA will donate approximately $1.30 ($1 Euro Dollar) to 16 Save the Children and UNICEF children’s educational programs in 14 developing countries. Last year the IKEA soft toy program raised over $4 million, this year, IKEA hopes to raise over $6 million this year!

2. UNICEF Greeting Cards: Did you know that 85% of Americans send greeting cards each year? 100% of IKEA proceeds from UNICEF greeting card sales are donated to UNICEF.

3. “ America at Home” Book: 100% of the proceeds from the unique coffee-table book will be donated to Save the Children's Early Steps to School Success program, which promotes literacy in young children in the U.S. to prepare them for a lifetime of learning. The book’s cover can be customized to feature a home or family photo that is uploaded to, making it a gift that will be cherished for years.

4. IKEA PS GRINDTORP: These colorful pillows are the result of social responsibility programs that include zero tolerance for child labor, an early education school program and an inoculation program for babies and moms-to-be. When you give this gift, it provides thousands of women with the economic growth they need to take care of themselves and their families.

Just some great gift ideas to think about while shopping this holiday season....I am sure the gift recipient will be so delighted to know that their gift is still giving as they hold it in their hands!!
