You’ve been busily bookmarking our gift guide, but this December, we’re also going to draw your attention to great gifts that also give back — to the community, to children, to the world around us. Check them out, and share your favorite gifts that give in the comments.

You already love Clinique’s fragrances and nail enamel. You know what will make you love them even more? The fact that Clinique has already donated $250,000 from their Happy Heart collection to Petra Nemcova’s Happy Hearts Fund. And it continues to donate 25% of the sales of the Happy Heart fragrance, Happy nail enamel and “Make Someone Happy” T-shirt to the charity, which the supermodel started in 2006 after surviving the devastating 2004 tsunami in Thailand.

Since its inception, the Happy Hearts Fund has built or rebuilt 84 schools in seven countries. And Nemcova paired up with Clinique to create a limited-edition line of products that support the mission — so $10 from each $38 fragrance, $3 from every $12.50 nail enamel and $5 from each $16 T-shirt will go to projects like the most recent, building a computer center in Sandy-hit Staten Island, N.Y.

How are you giving back this holiday season? Tell us in the comments!
