11 Charitable Holiday Gifts That Literally Give Back

Now that the holidays are just right around the corner, many of us are already shopping for holiday gifts to delight everyone on our lists, but where we spend our money can actually make more of a difference than just impressing the giftee in question. 2020 has been an unprecedentedly challenging year courtesy of the pandemic and its impact on the economy, but the bright side is that this year there are more opportunities than ever before to shop for gifts that give back and support charities.

Whether you’re looking for eco-friendly gifts that both practice and support sustainability efforts through ethical manufacturing methods or novelty stocking stuffers with proceeds from sales funding specific charities like Planned Parenthood and ACLU, there are plenty of thoughtful giftable options to choose from this year that will make you feel extra good about spending your money on them and treating your friends and family to a gift that goes to a good cause (buyer’s remorse, begone). Scroll through below to check out the best gifts that give back this year.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
