Gifts that Help Others
We are adding on to our Do Good and Hostess gift ideas from last year. I love the idea of gifts that give back. The idea that what we do and that how we spend our money can impact the world is a message that is powerful and makes holiday gift giving a little more meaningful. What is great is that the gifts can also be at the top of anyone’s wish list! Godiva Chocolates! Ornaments! A pretty coin purse!
By buying these exquisite eight chocolates with ingredients originating from Costa Rica, Venezuela, Ecuador and Uganda, you are also providing eight meals to children in Equador and Uganda.
Ornaments designed by celebrity designers Rachel Zoe and Diane Von Furstenberg will help improve mental health services for kids through the Child Mind Institute. They are sold through Bloomingdales online or in store.
Avon Coin Purse, $5
A pretty sparkly coin purse could double as a clutch. For a mere $5, you are also helping victims of domestic violence through the Avon Foundation for programs dedicated to ending violence against women.
Fair Trade Gifts from Handcrafting Justice
Any gifts from Handcrafting Justice also give the gift of hope!
This fair trade classic pearl necklace from Thailand for $40 also gives the gift of hope. The pearls are crystal pearls made of Swarovski – a perfect replica of genuine pearls. The necklace measures 17″ with a 2″ extender and comes in a handmade paper box.
I like the roominess of this Banana Fiber bag from Kenya, $65, for books, magazines, knitting, or beach!
A pretty silver box to store jewelry, $30.
There is a whole section Gifts That Give Back at Whole Foods!
