3.     Help fight world hunger with a box of Godiva chocolate and a FEED 10 bag for $50. FEED is a charity started by Lauren Bush Lauren. Each item you purchase has a set donation built into it to feed school children around the world. This FEED 10 bag provides meals for 10 school children.

7.     I have been using products from Clinage, a local skincare company, for 3 years, and I love them. This Vitamin C Home Peel kit for $125 is a great gift for the mom who is into beauty. It's like a peel like you'd get at the dermatologist. The kit has a cleanser, skin peel, serum, moisturizer and more in it, and it works really well for a ton of different skin problems.
