Instill in your grad a sense of social responsibility by choosing gifts that support fair trade wages for artisans or donate part of the proceeds to needy communities.

For your recent high school grad who's planning on majoring in international business, snag some luggage tags that support women in Africa who want to start their own businesses. For the college grad going off to med school, buy a medicine kit that also provides one for a family in need.
