Holiday Gift Guide - Gifts That Give Back
Giving gifts is a great way to let someone know you are thinking about them and how much you love them. That doesn’t mean we don’t get stumped from time to time on what to buy! We’ve gathered up some of our favorite items to help you shop for everyone on your list. These aren’t just any gifts, these unique gifts make a difference. Each item gives back a transparent portion of the profits to a featured charitable nonprofit partner. Whether you are shopping for kids, teenagers, teachers, friends, family, or coworkers; we’ve got something they will love that also makes a difference. Check our gift guide suggestions below!
Gifts for Her
Impress her with a gift that that shows your thoughtfulness. Here are a few of our top suggestions for gifts that donate to charity for any woman on your list.
A New Handbag- Women work hard and we need a handbag that can keep up with our pace. It helps if it is fashionable and bold like our personality too. We love the Keep Going Keep Growing Dark Floral Crossbody Bag with Chain or the Dream a Little Bigger Floral Leather Tote
A Candle Exuding Luxury- You can never go wrong with a candle! The Painted Lantern Boudoir Collection candles come in a gorgeous thick glass jar with elaborate hexagonal embossing that dazzles. This candle is a show-stopper, eminently suited for gifting, holidays, housewarmings, or just because. This candle is a hand-poured 12.5oz candle that uses 100% soy wax made from soybeans grown in America by American farmers. Plus, it comes in 8 color options!
Jewelry & Watches- Jewelry makes a great gift! Women love jewelry and accessorizing any outfit. The best part is...you don't need to know their size. Jewelry fits almost everyone all the time. Try the Larissa Loden MAMA Necklace in Gift Box, the Drop Double Link Earrings, the I Breathe in my Courage, I Exhale my Fear Inspire Adjustable Ring, or the Do All Things with Kindness Ultra-Thin Leather Strap Quartz Watch
Notebooks & Journals- Help her stay organized or collect her thoughts with a fashionable notebook or journal. We love the It's Okay to Not Do Everything Embroidered Notebook or the Mom Brain Hardcover Matte Journal!Cozy Slippers- She's fabulous and maybe a little extra but in all the right ways. Give her slides that will make a statement. We suggest the Women's Faux Fur Slides in Pink/Blush/Powder
Gifts for Him

Greeting Cards- One of the simplest ways to let someone know you are thinking about them is through a greeting card. The Set of 4 Seed Paper Plantable All Occasion Greeting Cards Multipack is a great gift for the environmentally friendly. You can plant these cards when finished and they will bloom wildflowers and grass.
