The Style Blog: Golf gifts that give back

November 29, 2011

The clock is already tick-tick-ticking away and gift-giving time is a little less than a month away. I always intend to put extra time and thought into each individual gift, but I'm typically railroaded by big sales, big crowds and too much confusion. So this year I thought I'd sideswipe the insanity of holiday shopping by making most of my purchases on line, and by selecting gifts that give back. I'd say that's a hole-in-one!
