You know that super satisfied feeling you get when you give the perfect gift to someone you love? Ok, magnify that by 1,000. We’ve done some research and rounded up five spot-on picks that do more than just wow their recipients—they give back to a worthy cause at the same time. So go ahead, pick up a pair of socks or a solar bluetooth speaker and feel better knowing that these gifts will really keep on giving.
Statement socks are having a moment (thanks, Gen Z), and these styles from Conscious Step are not just super sweet, each purchase also gives back to one of the 17 causes you choose from. Get a pair that will help save LGBTQ lives (in partnership with The Trevor Project), protect the oceans (by supporting Oceana), save dogs (together with the Best Friends Animal Society), and more.

Their next adventure is going to be lit. The Luci Explore light from MPOWERD is a multi-faceted solar light that gives off a gorgeous glow, while also serving as a Bluetooth speaker and a portable mobile charger. It’s perfect for RVs, camping, or just hanging in the yard or on the beach. Each purchase helps MPOWERD on their mission—the company donates solar-powered lamps to communities around the world without reliable electricity.
It’s hard to choose from SiteSee’s selection of matching sets, sweet sweats, and cheeky accessories—so don’t. A portion of every purchase you make goes to the Take FLYTE organization, also known as the Foundation for Learning and Youth Travel Education. This nonprofit empowers students in underserved communities by giving them the transformative experience of travel.

Cute, cuddly, handcrafted, and sustainably made, this sweet pick is a classic stuffed toy in a soft knit material that the little ones on your list will love. And, it does more than just look adorable: Each purchase from Cuddle & Kind will provide 10 meals to feed children affected by hunger.
Keep the good vibes going with your presentation of your gifts: Choose a wrapping paper or gift bag from Wrappily that’s sustainably made, recyclable, and compostable, too.
