Holiday Gift Guide: Charitable Gifts

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

One of the things I love most about Christmas is the spirit of giving which comes with the season. I absolutely love shopping for gifts which I know my friends and family are going to cherish. It's a great feeling knowing something you put thought into picking out for someone is well loved and will be well used.  

While shopping, however, it's hard not to think about those who may not receive a thoughtful gift this Christmas or the many issues which continue to plague our planet well after the season. Keeping that in mind, I made it a priority to include socially conscious items in my Christmas shopping this year. There are so many wonderful companies who sell quality products which positively contribute to the world. The gifts featured in today's gift guide are ones you will feel great about giving! 

Charity Pot - Lush // 100% of the proceeds from each Charity Pot purchase is donated to organizations devoted to animal welfare, environmental conservation, and human rights. 

Star Clutch - Kate Spade On Purpose // This canvas clutch supports female artisans in Rwanda. 

Phone Case - Pela // Pela phone cases are made from compostable materials, but they are very sturdy! Pela is also a part of 1% For the Planet which means they donate a portion of their annual sales to clean water and ocean organizations.

Women in Power - Shrill Society // Proceeds from the purchase of this shirt will help support women pursuing public leadership through She Should Run.

Hat - TenTree // For every purchase made on TenTree's website, ten trees are planted. Over 17 million trees have been planted by this company. 

Tote Bag - Kimothy Joy // 20% of this purchase will be donated to Emily's List.

Sunglasses - Warby Parker // When you buy a pair of glasses, a pair will be given to someone in need. 

Bangle - Alex and Ani // Proceeds from the origami crane bangle are donated to the National Network to End Domestic Violence. The crane represents strength in difficult times. 

Waterbottle - Me to We // One Brita water bottle replaces 300 plastic bottles. The Me to We collaboration provides one year of clean water to a person in Kenya.

Shoes - Toms // The original One for One brand. Toms will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need with every pair of shoes purchased from the website. 

Most items can be purchased in stores to ensure you have them for Christmas!
