Giving Gifts that Give Back

These goodies give double holiday hugs: a gift for your loved one, and a gift for charity! Have last minute gifts to buy? Consider these that do double the good.

Cuddle + Kind

Quite possibly one of our favorite brands of all time is Cuddle + Kind. Their dolls are just as amazing as their backstory. A husband and wife duo created this business to make an impact on childhood hunger. For every doll purchased, 10 meals are donated to children in need. The dolls are made from natural, high-quality cotton and are handmade with love in Peru, offering artisan craftswomen fair-trade income. Such an incredible mission, and the dolls are just too cute for words!

Bella Tunno 

We LOVE Bella Tunno. Their products are colorful, modern, and innovative, and are designed with materials that are safe for children and practical for parents. For every product purchased, a meal is bought for a hungry child. Their products range from amazing diaper bags to bibs to teethers, and really anything in between.


Love Kiehl’s? (We do, too.) And now a reason to love them even more: they’ve partnered with Disney for a charitable program to provide meals to those in need. One purchase could provide up to 355 meals!


Giving books this holiday season? (Of course you are!) Check out Better World Books for every book sold on their site they donate a book to someone in need. They’ve currently donated over 25 million books!

State Bags

You know how we love family run businesses! STATE was created by a husband wife duo in New York to address the immediate needs of American children living with challenging – and in some cases critical – circumstances. For each bag purchased, one fully stocked backpack is hand delivered to an American child in need. Plus, they are so CUTE!

Bombas Socks

Socks are the #1 MOST requested clothing item at homeless shelters. This fact is the driving force behind Bombas. Bombas exists to help solve this problem, to support the homeless community, and to bring awareness to an under-publicized problem in the United States. Personally, I can’t think of a Christmas I didn’t either give or receive a pair of socks. Why not help this cause? For every pair purchased, they donate a pair. So far, over 5 MILLION pairs of socks have been donated. And, they offer 20% off your first order!

Smile Squared

What about toothbrushes? Does every stocking get one? Check out smile squared, where each purchase is a donation. Oral health impacts a child’s overall health, esteem and the ability to flourish, and they’re doing something about it. We love their motto: “You buy one. We give one. We smile better together.”

Who can’t get behind that?!?!
