Day 13 Gift Guide: 10 Gifts That Give Back!

Gift Guide: Gifts that Give Back

Day 13 of my 50 DIY Days: Gifts That Give Back!

I know it may seem a bit early for a gift guide, but trust me: time will fly by and you’ll be Christmas shopping before you know it. Today I’m sharing a list of Gifts That Give Back! You’ll be buying presents for friends and loved ones this year anyway, so why not find gifts that also give something back? I found a lovely collection of gifts that I think are awesome and would be great for almost anyone on your list.

  1. Give the gift of a monthly gift box subscription, from Globe In! Each month your gift recipient will receive beautiful, distinct products from around the world that support remote artisans and farmers. They bring you delightful, useful products that have an impactful social mission behind them. Check out the October “Cozy” box to get a better idea of what you can get in these boxes. Guys, you can save 25% off your first months box when you buy a 3 or 6 months subscription by using this code: PAPERMAMA
  2. We love to give wine for gifts, so I was very happy when I found One Hope. They give to multiple charities, it just depends on what you buy. The Rainbow Glitter Edition Brut I shared above funds one hour of operational costs for The Trevor Project’s lifeline, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth (for every four bottles sold).
  3. Anytime you buy a pair of glasses from Warby Parker, a pair is given to someone in need.
  4. You can find soaps, lotions, and other goodies at Noodle & Boo and they are perfect stocking stuffers. A significant portion of Noodle & Boo’s profit is set aside for children’s charities.
  5. Find beautiful jewelry, home goods, and a bunch of handmade items from the Moorea Seal shop and 7% of all proceeds from their store benefits five non profit categories. You can even check out the “Shop by cause” section to choose where your money goes.
  6. I know we probably all know about the TOM’s story, but it can’t hurt to add it to this list. You buy a pair of shoes and a pair is donated to someone in need.
  7. When you purchase something from FEED you provide meals for children in need. Each item has a different amount of meals it can provide.
  8. I know this is based in Portland, but they need to be mentioned. Ex Novo (a non profit brewery) is committed to donating 100% of their net profits to organizations that are working to effect positive social change both in Portland and around the world. So, if you happen to see their brews in the store, grab a bottle! I’m currently pregnant and haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but my husband tells me the beer is delicious.
  9. We love SpiritHoods in my house. My daughter has had one for years now and she still wears it when it’s cold outside. SpiritHoods donates 10% of net profits to the conservation of endangered animals.
  10. Buy something special from Uncommon Goods and they will donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice. There’s so much to find on this site, there’s probably something for all of your friends here.

In case you missed it above, be sure to check out Globe In and save 25% off your first months box when you buy a 3 or 6 month subscription by using this code: PAPERMAMA
