Holiday Gifts That Give Back

Happy Giving Tuesday! We love this day because the last week has been consumerism overload (especially with our gift guide), and today is all about making charitable donations to causes that inspire you (more on a charity I love at the bottom of this post).

If you’re still in “buy, buy, buy” mode, I totally get it! You have a holiday list to tackle, those sales are constantly in your face, and you have limited time to get ‘er done. Luckily, you can participate in Giving Tuesday and cross a few more names off of that “to buy” list!  All of the following gift ideas give a portion of their profits to reputable charities. These gifts that give back are not only amazing by themselves, but they’re each tied to a worthy charity.

Cuddle + Kind Dolls

These stuffed dolls are adorable and Bridget actually has a bunch in Ben’s nursery. Cuddle + Kind’s mission is to end childhood hunger, so for every doll purchased 10 meals are given to children around the world.
