This holiday season, purchase with a purpose by giving gifts that give back. Not only do the following companies make incredible products that will charm your family and friends, they also support a variety of different causes. May your gifts inspire cheer and charity this Christmas.

 

Teleties

 

Each purchase of these trendy and fun hair ties supports families affected by hereditary breast, ovarian and related cancers. Once they stretch out, I can put them in hot water and they go back to their original form. They also look a lot more attractive on a wrist than the classic brown hair tie.

 


Mitscoots Outfitters

 

For every item purchased, Mitscoots gives an equal item to someone in need as well as, employing transitioning homeless. Mitscoots has a variety of winter items for her, him, and baby. Last year my husband was gifted with socks from Mitscoots and they are by far his favorite socks to wear.


Ixchel Triangle

 

Every purchase of these handmade pieces supports the Guatemalan artisans and their families. The artisans are paid above market wage which supports those who are interested in furthering their education. I bought my diaper bag from them years ago and still use it to this day! Their bags are gorgeous whether you are looking for a day tote, a clutch, or an overnight travel bag.

This home goods company creates opportunities for artisans in developing countries to bring their products to the American market in a fair trade relationship. I have shopped some of their clothing pieces before but this bread basket is dreamy. Definitely a great gift for the Bohemian home lover.

The Parks Project works with over 30 park conservancies to fund important projects in our National Parks. They also inspire Americans to get outside and enjoy the 84 million acres of land that were protected for our benefit.

 

 


Preemptive Love

 

Refugee-made products that restore communities and change lives. This beautiful tea towel supports Syrian refugees in Iraq. I love what the organization has to say about these towels: “Life in a refugee camp offers little space for beauty or imagination, but these tea towels are changing that. Each one provides income and stability for a refugee family—and a renewed sense of purpose for the women who make them.”  Check out their candles, soap and knits.

A local and global organization, ending generational poverty for women. ABLE is a lifestyle brand that is providing economic opportunities for women to work in a safe and healthy environment. I may have my eyes on these booties here.
