12 Stylish Holiday Gifts that Give Back

Organic Chocolate Bars
Fearless Chocolate donates 1 percent of its annual proceeds to change-makers nominated by customers. And you get 100 percent decadent chocolate in flavors like Exploding Coconuts and Sweet & Hot Hibiscus Ginger.
Available at Fearless Chocolate.


Motorcycle Booties
Kenneth Cole sure is in a giving mood. First, he takes the traditional rain boot and gives it a motorcycle makeover. Second, he donates all net profits to The Awareness Fund (in partnership with AMFAR), which supports HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.
Available at Kenneth Cole

A "Do-Good" Tote
A casual tote that doubles as a weekend bag and triples as a good deed? Sign me up. MEND’s cotton canvas version fits the bill: Each is sewn by a seamstress from Invisible Children, an organization that works to stop the use of child soldiers in Northern Uganda. 
Available at Invisible Children.

Pangea Organics Bar Sap
If you want some suds, go to the bar. Pangea Organics’s soaps are filled with therapeutic herbs and come in plantable packaging embedded with blue spruce seeds. A percentage of proceeds also supports abused and disenfranchised women through Women for Women International. 
Available at Pangea Organics

Warby Parker Glasses
You’re not seeing double. For every pair sold, Warby Parker donates another set of its ever-cool glasses to Restoring Vision.
Available at Warby Parker.
 Jump Rope
Found My Animal unleashes 25 percent of profits from each sale on pet accessories to the animal-friendly Louis Foundation. The people-friendly jump rope counts, too.
Availble at Found My Animal.
Fabulous Jewlery
You don’t need  a shooting star to land one of these baubles. December 1-15, a portion of online sales on Nicky Hilton’s new jewelry collection goes to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Available at Amazon.com.



Japanese Woodblack Coasters
Your holiday spirits and libations can rest easy on colorful ceramic, cork-backed coasters. (You can rest easier knowing each sale helps UNICEF.)
Available at Here.


Angel Wing Necklace
 Help out homeless dogs and cats by snagging a CC Skye necklace. Twenty percent of each sale goes to our furry friends.
Available Here.

Chantecaille Makeup
Global network Traffic receives 5 percent of the proceeds from sales of the Tiger in the Wild Palette and Bengali Bronzer to help its fight against the exotic animal trade.


Mini Gold Charms
Half of the profits from every Altruette charm goes to the charity it represents. We dig The Floating Clinic gold life preserver and Kids with Cameras point-and-shoot.
Available at Here.






Beach Towel
Feel good about laying on the sand. A towel from Kokua Hawaii Foundation, Jack Johnson’s nonprofit supporting environmental education in schools throughout the tropical state, is a nice reminder.
Available at Here.

This is such a great list :)I actually need new glasses because after five years mine broke, so I'll definitely look into the Warby Parker ones.
