That will also give back to nature

Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life.

There's nothing your most granola friend will love more than a gift that speaks to their outdoorsy ways. Parks Project partners with nature conservancy groups to give proceeds from product purchases right back to the parks it's inspired by, so not only will your gift remind your friend of The Great Outdoors™, but it will also help a cause they love. And a gift that's also a donation to an important cause is basically two gifts in one.

Parks Project is the passion project of a couple of avid nature lovers, who were already volunteering and giving back to the parks they so adored. They wanted to do more, though, which led them to start a company that would expand the work they were already doing and spark change on a larger scale. Parks Project has partnered with National Geographic and the Sierra Club, among other brands and causes, to help put a fashionable and aesthetically pleasing spin on the act of giving back.

Below, we rounded up some of our favorite gifts from Parks Project that your most fresh air-loving friend will definitely covet.

"Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
