Gifts You Can Give that Give Back
Still looking for that perfect gift for someone special on your list? Give a gift that gives back to someone in need.
Here are some of my favorite brands—and items—that will give back to those who need it most:
one // anything from 31 bits
31 Bits is an incredible shop/organization that supports artisans around the world. Where you shop matters, so shop somewhere that gives back with every purchase, and supports things like ethical working conditions, fair wages, and community impact.
two // onehope wine
Seriously, what's a better gift than wine?! I would LOVE to get a box of wine under the tree—especially if it's not just yummy, but also supports a great cause.
three // a donation to someone's favorite charity
You can give a donation to a charity in just about anyone's name, and I can't think of anything more thoughtful, especially this year. Here are some of my favorites, that I'll be giving to this season:
- Planned Parenthood
- American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)
- SF Marin Food Bank
four // lush's charity pot body lotion
If you're going to gift a beauty product, give on that gives back! I'm a huge fan of Lush products, and 100% (yes, 100%!) of the proceeds of this Charity Pot Body Lotion are given back to, "grassroots organizations working in the areas of environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights".
five // warby parker glasses
Every pair of Warby Parker glasses that's purchased gives a pair back to someone in need around the world. Someone in your life need a new pair of glasses—or sunglasses? Give the gift of Warby Parker!
