When it comes to Christmas shopping I try to think about meaningful gifts and I always come back to the fact that for me the holidays are a fun, joyous time, but to others it can just highlight the hardships. It's the year to GIVE so why not give in a new meaningful way?
You can still buy something nice and unique for someone and still do good.
Here are (5) companies that are making beautiful products that are significantly making a difference.
I had the pleasure of working with this group this year for my husband's client's gifts.
They curate and produce stunning gift boxes (for every person/occasion) that help feed children in need. One box provides 10 meals. Seriously, keep them on your GIFT IDEA Pinterest board.
Cuddle + Kind
Ethnically produced, hand knit dolls (that are the cutest) that help feed children.
I bought one for our son this Christmas because I can't help but want to collect them all. The dolls have names, birthdays and sweet positive messages and provides 10 meals. It's a total win-win.
*order by 12/16 for Christmas delivery.
One Hope Wine
With a variety of wine, coffee and specialty gift boxes you can find a unique gift for just about anyone. Even the dog lover. But the coolest thing is that each box will give back in someway. Either plant a tree, feed children, help find a sheltered animal a home - the ways to "do good" through a One Hope box is endless.
The Little Market
Fair trade gifts that are empowering female artisans around the world. Hand-made (culture-inspired) gifts that really make a difference on a global scale and will certainly add some wordly charm to any space. The Little Market has divided up their projects into a perfect guide that makes shopping easy.
Their ONE for ONE messaging is all it takes. Now way more than just a shoe brand - buying for others and feeling good about it is easy. From sunglasses, bags and other forms of apparel buying gifts that GIVE back is stylish and fun.
