ABC Carpet & Home offers a wide array of gifts in their department stores, from vintage and antiques to artisan indigenous pieces from cooperatives around the world, but it is gifts of compassion, from their non-profit arm ABC Home & Planet Foundation, that I'd like to highlight as a last-minute holiday gift suitable for anytime of the year.
Gifts of Compassion offer an opportunity to give friends, loved ones and colleagues a lasting gift that provides targeted services to heal our planet and communities. Each gift is represented with a personalized certificate and presented in a vintage silk sari envelope.
