In case it weren’t already apparent, we love the holiday season - whether it’s gathering for some grub or staying in for Secret Santa, December is our month to let a little loose with our loved ones and indulge in some dining room debauchery (I mean, when it gets dark at 4pm, why not, right?!)
There’s simply nothing lovelier in our eyes than spending time with the ones we love, but for those we can’t be with in person, or those who like their presents with a side of philanthropism, a few of our suggestions from our Giving Guide below, just might do the trick.

FOR THE BUTCHER ON A BUDGET
