I love giving holiday gifts from companies that help others or donate a part of their proceeds to a good cause. In the next year I want to do more of it because it’s a win for everyone! I’ve rounded up a list of companies or products that work with charities and nonprofits or provide product to help others in need. Hope they inspire ideas for one of your holiday gifts this season!
Gifts that give back:
Diff Eyewear: You can feel good knowing that the fun pair of sunglasses you bought for your bestie (or yourself) is helping someone. For every pair of Diff sunglasses purchased, a pair of reading glasses is donated to someone in need. I am not an affiliate, but you can find a discount easily on Instagram; just about every blogger has one you can use! The nonprofit Eyes on Africa is the organization Diff works with.
It Cosmetics Brow Power pencil: The makeup lover in your life will love this and other It Cosmetics products. For every pencil sold, It Cosmetics donates one to Look Good Feel Better® to “help women face the effects of cancer with confidence.” Plus, It Cosmetics is cruelty-free!
TOMS: You can find plenty of gift options, including handbags, sunglasses, coffee and the shoes TOMS is known for. Every purchase you make helps a person in need. TOMS employees spent Giving Tuesday volunteering this year according to TOMS’ website.
Little Market: If you like Lauren Conrad’s style you might enjoy just about every fair trade product and gift sold by the Little Market. You can find candles, bags, jewelry, home decor and more! The Little Market is an independent nonprofit, charitable organization [501(c)3]. As the website says, “All sales revenue generated is retained within The Little Market, and any surpluses are used to purchase product and expand the number of artisans we work with around the world.”
Ivory Ella: All sorts of clothing, jewelry and other gifts can help save the elephants! Ten percent of the brand’s profits are donated to charitable organizations that benefit both humans and animals.
Little Lotus: Find swaddles and and sleeping bags to give as gifts for the babies and parents to be in your life and know that each purchase helps a pre-term baby. According to Little Lotus, “With your Little Lotus purchase, you are helping to ensure a baby in need gets access to a low cost incubator that we, at Embrace Innovations, designed for preterm and underweight babies in the developing world.”
Love With Food: Love With Food is a monthly snack box subscription service that offers organic or all-natural snacks. Boxes start from only $8/month. For every box sent, a meal is donated to feed hungry children in America. To date, almost 700,000 meals have been donated.
LifeStraw: Get the outdoorsy person in your life a water bottle with the LifeStraw filter, which makes water safe to drink and helps others at the same time. LifeStraw says, “For each LifeStraw product sold, a portion of the sales price goes toward the distribution of our large-volume LifeStraw Community purifiers to schools in the developing world.” You can find LifeStraw at major retailers as well as the LifeStraw website.
