Gifts That Give Back

Use this guide to shop for anyone on your list all while giving back to a greater cause

The thought of buying your friends and family holiday gifts can be overwhelming; you may not know if they will like or use it. But, your mom is much more likely to love a gift if she knows she is saving the turtles and sending girls in India to school. With these four companies below, not only will you be able to give an awesome present, but a portion of your purchase will be donated to specific charities.

Gift #1- Towels and Tapestries for Marine Life

Sand Cloud offers a large array of adorable, trendy towels and tapestries that any person would love to have. With fun patterns and dyes, these gifts will make anyone feel like they are back in summer. Their mission is to save marine life, so they will be donating ten percent of every purchase to five different ocean organizations. The link below brings you right to their website so you can shop easy! Click here to shop Sand Cloud

Gift #2- Coffee for Firefighters

Coffee is a classic fall-back gift for your parents. You know they will use it and think of you with every cup they drink. Fire Dept. Coffee puts a fun twist on this gift, as it is made by firefighters and for firefighters, first responders, and military (and if your parents are a part any of these organizations, you can get a discount). But don’t worry, even if your parents have a different profession, you can still get it and support those people! According to the company, “A portion of every order goes to support firefighter and military charities and we’re excited to announce that Fire Department Coffee will soon be launching our own charitable foundation dedicated to serving our heroes. More details to come.” Make sure to click the link below and keep an eye out for their own new organization. Click here to shop Fire Dept. Coffee

Gift #4- Cosmetic bags for Female Education

Your mom and sisters are going to need a makeup bag to put all the new products in that they will be getting for Christmas.
