Chris Burch Gives Back In Spades

Every successful entrepreneur is a generous giver. That giving can take the form of monetary giving, giving of ones time, or giving of gifts. Entrepreneur and investor Chris Burch loves giving his time and money to worth cause but giving gifts to his loved ones is something he enjoys. Chris recently revealed some of his favorite gifts to give to those he cares for.

Chris’ work takes him all around the world and so one of his favorite things to do is purchase gifts that reflect where his travels have taken him. He also likes to buy from companies that he invests in. His list of favorite gifts include: a Snowe Home Candle Set, a Barbour Gisburne jacket, a Trademark Cooper Cage Tote, and chocolate or candies from Fatty Sundays. These are all wonderful gift ideas that show Burch’s character but perhaps none accomplishes that feat like his number one gift idea: giving to a charity on behalf of the recipient.
