Gifts that Give Back
There is no bad time to give back, but there is something about the holiday season that puts people in a charitable mood. And while most people pay it forward by writing checks to charities or dropping spare change in the Salvation Army kettle, you can pay it forward twice over when you give your loved one a charitable gift.

That’s right, there are plenty of affordable gifts that give back to worthy causes.
Although a small percentage of proceeds from your purchase might not seem like a lot, when combined with the efforts of thousands, they can lead up to a
hefty donation.
From wine that helps children with Autism to bracelets that support the LGBTQ+ community, there is a gift for every cause.

Here are just a few "Feel Good" shopping ideas.
Family Meal: Recipes from Our Community

If someone has been perfecting their cooking skills in quarantine, then they'll appreciate this digital cookbook that features recipes from some of the top food and drink authors in the country. All proceeds benefit the Restaurant Workers' Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund, which supports on-the-ground efforts in the restaurant community during this challenging time.
"Listen To Your Heart" Bracelet
MantraBand® Bracelets

Available in yellow gold, rose gold, and silver, this adjustable bracelet is a reminder that
your heart never lies — especially when it comes to your health. For every bracelet
purchased, Mantra donates $5 donation to the American Heart Association.
"Your Brain On Yoga" Tote

If your loved one hasn’t found peace of mind yet, give it to them in the form of this tote.
Not only will they smile at the image of a zen brain, but they’ll smile knowing 10 percent
of the proceeds go to Mental Health America.

This kit contains everything needed to make a devilishly good cocktail. And 100 percent of the proceeds benefit Another Round Another Rally, which supports U.S. hospitality
workers who’ve lost their job due to COVID-19.
Make-A-Wish Quilt Set

This whimsical reversible quilt is sure to fulfill any bedroom makeover desires. For every

Make-A-Wish America. The company will also grant bedroom makeover wishes to families with a child battling a critical illness.

Hand poured with love, this candle features a motivational quote and is made from
essential oils that come in several soothing and uplifting scents. And, as part of the
#standupforchange initiative, the company donates 10 percent of profits of this candle to
Pride Lokai

Lokai beads are unique in that the white beads are infused with water from Mount
Everest and the black bead has mud from the Dead Sea. And with every purchase of the
Pride edition, Lokai donates $1 to organizations supporting the rights and wellbeing of
LGBTQ+ communities.
Monthly Care Package

This monthly care package for the achiever in your life is sure to bring a smile with all the
self-care goodies packed inside. For every 10 packages purchased, the company
donates a cheerful care package to teens currently in the foster care system.

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.
California State Wooden Keychain

This state-pride keychain is a great stocking stuffer and with each purchase a tree is
planted. (several states available)
In-Home care can allow your loved one to better celebrate important holidays, and often bring back strong memories.
