’Tis The Season For The Best Gifts (That Give Back)
A do-good guide for everyone on your list!
The Giving Keys Classic Pendant Necklace $35
These awesome and inspiring key necklaces are engraved with words such as “Believe,” “Dream,” and “Courage.” The messages are meant to inspire and motivate the wearer, and for the wearer to then pay it forward. The brand gives back by employing homeless men and women, and helping them off the streets and into a better life.
InspireMyCase Rewind Couture Phone Cases $34.95
A pretty phone case is essential these days, which is why these new couture-inspired cases are on the top of our list. Forget one, we want them all! And the best part is that 20% of all proceeds goes directly to the charity AngelMule, in order to purchase art supplies for children in need around the world.
Give Apparel Meaning Signature Jacket $118
Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the gym, and then some. We could literally rock this jacket 24/7. And knowing that it gives back makes it even more priceless. Every item purchased means that 100L of clean drinking water is donated to the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program.
MAC Limited Edition Viva Glam It Up Bag $39.50
What do you get when you combine Nicki Minaj’s Pink Satin Lipstick, Ricky Martin’s Colourless Lip Conditioner, and a leopard print vinyl clutch? Answer: the best gift idea for your beauty-loving BFF. And every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
The Laughing Man Lonely Heart's Tea Set $30
This breakfast blend and infuser combo is the perfect option for any tea fanatic. Did we mention the company is owned by Hugh Jackman?! Do we even need to say more? OK, so the brand also incubates companies it believes in and donates 100% of profits to charity.
Krochet Kids' Barney Hat $24.95
Nothing says “I love you” like a cool beanie that also gives back. Ahem, the perfect gift idea for the mister (let’s not forget about him!). The brand is a nonprofit that teaches women in impoverished nations how to crochet, exports their goods and then gives back the proceeds from the sales.
Spadaro Perfumes $135 each
It’s OK to feel ecstatic when you purchase luxurious scents. Especially if it happens to be Spadaro’s new Sole Nero, Doux Amour, and Noche de Fuego perfumes. We won’t tell if they’re really just for you! Creator and entrepreneur Kim Spadaro donates 4% of each sale to The Spadaro Foundation.
Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Creme Colour Palette $47
It’s great to glow from within, but it never hurts to have a little blush on the outside! Lucky for you, Laura Mercier packages this two-for-one deal in an ultra-sheer, blendable palette that has everything from bronzer to cheek color. All of the profits benefit the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. Do good and look good? We’re in!
Pop-Up Pantry Gift Subscription, starts at $17 per person
Ever wish a celebrity chef would cook a delish dinner for you? Pop-Up Pantry offers gourmet, prepared meals delivered to your door for way less than you would pay at any Beverly Hills hot spot. The best part? For every order, the company will donate $5 to City Harvest, and if you use the code SANDY at checkout, you can get an extra $5 off. That’s one holiday meal we can totally get behind.
