Gifts that Give Back

Have your holiday gift make a difference to someone in need.

We all know ‘tis the season to be giving, but this season give a gift that not only brings a smile to your loved one, but also to someone else’s loved one that you’ll never even meet. And because we admire companies that are clear about where charitable proceeds are going, we’ve put together one easy list of some of our favorites to make holiday shopping easier for you this year.

1. FEED + Oh Joy! Diaper Bag
Exclusively for giggle, with each purchase of this collaborative bag between Oh Joy! and FEED, one mom and her child will be provided with micronutrients for one year. Oh Joy indeed. $150

2. The Soapbox Holiday Bundle
The SoapBox Holiday Bundle is a great way to spread the word about a company whose whole mission is dedicated to giving back. This gift will not only provide holiday joy, but also two bars of soap, one month of clean water, and one year of vitamins to someone who needs them most. $20

3. aden + anais (PRODUCT)RED™
As if we needed another reason to love aden + anais, the NYC-based company has gone and released a (PRODUCT)RED™ Special Edition Designer Collection 3-pack where 100% of the profits will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. Each purchase can provide more than a month of life-saving medicine to help prevent a pregnant mother living with HIV from passing the virus to her baby. $54.95

4. Warby Parker
To date, Warby Parker has given away one million glasses to people in need with their “buy a pair, give a pair” business model. Let’s help them hit the next million by giving the gift of sight to someone you love and, in turn, someone in need. $145

5. Toms
Toms is one of the first companies we know of that went “one for one.” You can always feel good that you’re putting a pair of shoes on a child in need’s feet when you buy a pair for your loved one (ok, or youself). $32

6. Indego Africa Marrakech Floor Basket
These gorgeous baskets are made by a nonprofit brand whose mission is equal parts innovative, stylish and empowering. All profits from sales fund educational training programs for the women who handcraft the products. $220

  1. Umm, the elephant TOMS… Amazing!

  2. Thanks for sharing! I love everything on this list. And I’ll add that hand-dyed baby onesies from Deer Jane on Etsy also give back, donating 10% to wildlife conservation.
