Have you already started your holiday shopping? How about buying meaningful gifts that will do more than just delight your recipient and actually give money back to those less fortunate? Here are a few ideas:
Fire Dept. Coffee
Founded by firefighters, Fire Dept. Coffee offers a variety of roasts and blends for java lovers. In addition to a special Christmas Blend, the company also offers spirit blends, like Bourbon-Infused Coffee and Rum-Infused Coffee, and a percentage of each order supports firefighter and military charities to give back to hardworking servicemen.
You honestly can’t beat the gift of booze, and this bottle of cabernet helps fund Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy for children with autism.
Love Your Melon Pom Beanie
Love Your Melon donates 50% of its profits to support pediatric cancer research and families affected by cancer.
Cuddle+Kind Aspen the Penguin
Cuddle+Kind partners with hunger organizations around the world to give meals to children. Your purchase of this precious penguin provides 10 meals to children in North America and around the world.
Adornia Lariat Necklaces
You may have seen some of your favorite celebs sporting these necklaces. There’s a lot to love about these lariat necklaces. They are available in a variety of styles, including 14K yellow gold plated silver, rose gold plated silver and 925 sterling silver, and feature inspirational words like Love, Hope, Woke, Boss, Soul and XO. Best yet, the company donates 10 percent of sales to a different women-centric charity each month.
Original Grain Watch
For the rugged guy who considers himself a bit of a maverick, consider an Original Grain timepiece. As part of their “Barrel Collection,” the brand has released two lines of handcrafted wooden watches using repurposed wood from American Oak bourbon barrels, as well as sustainably sourced materials. Thanks to a partnership with non-profit Trees for the Future, a tree is planted in Senegal for each hardwood-and-stainless-steel watch sold.
