There are no better gifts than the ones that keep on giving. With so many great items on the market that support amazing charities, make it a point to gift at least one person on your shopping list a meaningful gift that gives back to the community and those in need. Here’s my list of gifts that spread the best kind of Holiday Cheer.
1. Warby Parker Glasses
Do you have someone in your life that love sunglasses or needs to wear prescription glasses? I have the gift for them, Warby Parker sunglasses and eye glasses are perfect. The are a great price point, especially for prescription glasses. And when you purchase eyeglasses or sunglasses, they give someone the ability to see an eye doctor and get glasses themselves.
2. Toms Shoes
I love a great pair of shoes. There is nothing like a new pair. Sound like someone you know in your life? If so, here is a perfect gift for the shoe lover in your life. These black booties from Toms are adorable. The heel is not too high, and there is a little fringe tassel on the back of the heel. For every pair of Toms purchased, they help support the gift shoes, sight, safe birth, and bullying prevention. Toms are like the gift of a boost in self-esteem.
3. Bombas Socks
In my family, we love to gift cozy soft socks. On Christmas day, it’s the best feeling to be curled up by the fire with new socks on. Bombas has great cozy socks, and for every pair purchased, one pair is donated. Gap has partnered with Bombas and have created a limited edition collection. There are tons of great colors, it will brighten up any gift!
4. LSTN Headphones
Headphones make traveling more comfortable, and gifting a pair that can help someone hear improves the quality of life. The LSTN Headphones are on point, the noise cancellation is fantastic. They are made from recycled instruments and audio gear. When you purchase a pair, you help someone have the ability to hear. The gift of hearing, is so important.
5. Love Your Melon Beanie
Love Your Melon is an apparel brand run by college students across the country on a mission to give a hat to every child battling cancer in America.I love the Love your Melon ones, they are thick knit and come in several different colors. Since the cold weather is here, a great gift is a beanie!
6. 1Face Watch
“Be the Face of change with 1Face”, what a mission statement. 1Face supports nine different causes-cancer, hunger, breast cancer, clean water, disaster relief, environment, AIDS, education, and animal rights. When you purchase a watch, you can choose which cause to support. The rose gold watch is my favorite, I hope it ends up in my stocking!
Do you have someone on your list who loves fashion? Then check out FASIONABLE, they believe their role is to invest in a woman. What the mean by that is, they give jobs to women who have faced major challenges in their life. Some of overcome prostitution or drug addiction. Some of the ladies have overcome the lack of opportunity. My favorite is the gray and cream leather Zemen Carryall. It is the perfect bag to carry to the office or travel with.
8. Yoobi School/Office Supplies
Yoobi is a great place to find all gifts for your writers or artists. Yoobi means one for you, one for me! For every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the United States. Not only does this help the students, but the teachers who spend their own money on classroom supplies.
