12 Gifts that Give Back

Charitable Holiday Gifts

Tis the season! The holidays are filled with traditions, spending time with family and friends and probably a little chaos as well. Or a lot...

It’s so easy to get caught up in the parties, shopping and decorating. Not to mention all the gifts! Picking out gifts is one of my favorite things to do and I love these twelve gifts that also give back to charity.

These companies recognize the importance of giving back and are donating a portion of their proceeds to charity.

West Elm – gifts that support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. In addition to zipper cases, ornaments and a canvas tote, West Elm carries these two beautiful gifts:

1.) Metallic Knit Throw  (sale:$55)

2.) Hearts Bowl + Mug (sale:$9)

Kate Spade – The On Purpose collection is in partnership with the artisans of Masoro, Rwanda. The program, which builds on their legacy of empowering women, offers salaries and benefits to artisans in Rwanda year round. Who wouldn’t appreciate these items?

3.) Friendship bangle ($68)

4.) Leather tote ($298)

Greenheart Shop, based in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, this company is a fair-trade, non-profit shop that carries eco-friendly items from decor, clothing and accessories. Some of my favorite items from their collection are:

5.) Vanilla Blossom Teacup Candle ($20)

6.) Danta Antique Brass Photo Frame ($28)

Macy’sHeart of Haiti collection. A fair trade collection in partnership with Global Goods Partners. Artisans receive half of the wholesale price.

8.) Soapstone Heart Box with Gold Leaf ($26)

9.) Blue Striped Papier Mache Vase ($49)

Joyaux Marisol  – donates 20% of net profits to survivors of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

10.) Joyaux Marisol Umbrella in Pink ($425)

TOMS Marketplace – You might be familiar with TOMs shoes and their motto “One for One”, but did you know they offer home decor and accessories too? Same motto. For every product purchased, one person in need is helped.

11.) Serving Spoon Set ($75)

12.) Metallic Print Journal Set ($27)

What’s on your holiday gift list this year? I’d love to hear!
