Fashion + Philanthropy: FEED Gift Guide

Tis the season of gift giving, so why not give back to those in need while holiday shopping for loved ones? This year FEED is encouraging YOU to take part in their "Gift Squared" idea in which you buy one of their products as a holiday gift for family or friends, and in the process, give back to those suffering from hunger.  Start the holiday shopping for a cause {here} and check out some of my favorite FEED products that I may buy {or maybe have already purchased!} for friends and family this Christmas:
