Gifts That Give: A Charitable Holiday Gift Guide



I don't usually do Holiday Gift Guides since most of the time, I'm having trouble finding gifts to give myself. But this year, I wanted to try something different. The holidays are a time to give, and not just to send gifts to our friends and family, but also to think of those in the world who don't get the gift-getting opportunities as we do. I knew I wanted to expend my efforts somehow towards charitable causes even if I couldn't dedicate my time. So this winter, I'm giving gifts that also give back to the world. It's the perfect way to get into that holiday spirit knowing you supported a greater purpose. And of course, I kept it all under $50!

1. OneHope wine, $18-70 
ONEHOPE donates 50% of its profits to charity and each wine varietal supports a different charitable cause or organization

2. West Elm Charity mugs, on sale now for $9
50% of the purchase is donated to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital

With every product purchased, a bar of soap is donated and a month of clean water is provided to children in need in Haiti

1% of sales donated to City Year's New York chapter and 1% of volunteer time to organizations to help children in high-poverty communities reach their fullest potential despite harsh external factors

10% of proceeds from the Rescue Dog Series to rescue groups and shelters

6. Swap socks, $32 for a pack of four
Through Seva Foundation, SWAP Socks helps give direct aid to individuals suffering from visual impairment by funding eye care projects that provide vital eye care services for each pack sold

7. LSTN earbuds, on sale for $30
Purchases help fund the LSTN team's travels around the world to help provide hearing restoration and spread awareness for the global problem of hearing impairment and hearing loss

8. Bombas socks, $11 for one set
One pair of socks purchased is also one pair donated to homeless shelters

Each bracelet is handmade by Cambodian artisans and 10% of profits are donated to fight human trafficking in Cambodia

With every purchase, 100% donated to small, grassroots organizations working in the areas of environmental conservation, animal welfare, and human rights

Shea Yeleen works with two different women’s cooperatives in Northern Ghana to promote sustainable economic development in rural sub-Saharan Africa and empower and train women-owned shea butter cooperatives

100% of Three Avocados net proceeds provide clean water in Uganda and education in Nicaragua

With every phone case purchase, Kidogo Kidogo buys a phone (or phone credits) to give to a woman who could not otherwise afford it because a phone provides women a way to make secure banking transactions, monitor consumer markets and receive health reminders and updates, and have a much higher feeling of personal safety
