30 Gifts For Adults That Give Back

Like I did for my previous post "20 Gifts For Kids That Give Back," I have decided to do the same for adults! All of the stores in this list will donate a portion of their sales to various charities and organizations.
 
1) United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) - UNICEF has an online market full of various gifts from jewelry, musical instruments, to area rugs! 90% of their profit goes to helping children all over the world, providing everything from food to health care.

2) Guylian Belgian Chocolate
 - A portion of all of Guylian's sales goes towards Project Seahorse, a small conservation group dedicated to helping seahorses. This is my favorite brand of chocolate, so I highly recommend it as a gift for any chocolate lover!

3) Munchkin's Project Orca - Munchkin recently launched an #OrcasLiveInOceans campaign, where 100% of proceeds from their #OcrasLiveInOceans clothing goes towards building a coastal ocean sanctuary in the U.S. for captive orcas. Tee shirts are $25 and sweatshirts are $48. I actually own both sweatshirts and they are super comfy!

4) Toms
 - Toms shoes have a one for one program, so everytime you buy a Toms product, you are helping a person in need, from providing them with a pair of shoes to a safe birth.

5) Roma - Roma has a program called "Give Poverty of the Boot." Basically, for every pair of boots sold, a brand new pair of boots is donated to a child in need. Also, 10% of all of Roma's sales go to the Roma Foundation, which provides aid and education to children in poverty. Now rain boots on their own might not be the best gift, but you could do something cute like stick a bouquet of flowers in them!

6) Better World Books - Every time you purchase a book from Better World Books, they will donate a book to someone in need. Great gift for a book-lover!

7) Best Friends - Products you purchase from the Best Friends store goes towards helping animals find safe and loving homes! They have various shirts and accessories that would make great presents for a pet loving friend!

8) Box Lunch - For every $10 you spend at BoxLunch stores or on their website, they will donate a meal to someone in need! Box Lunch has a lot of pop-culture items, including Disney, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Sanrio, etc, so a great place to shop for the geek or nerd in your life!

9) Love Your Melon - Love Your Melon is known for their hats as their original program was for every hat bought, they would donate a hat to a child with cancer. Love Your Melon's now instead donates 50% of their profit made from product sales to their non-profit partners. They have also added shirts and other accessories to their site as well, in addition to their hats.

10) Good Spread - Everytime you purchase Good Spread peanut butter, Good Spread provides a life-saving peanut butter medicine called Ready-To-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) to a child in need through their partnership with MANA Nutrition. You can find Good Spread in select stores or order online. This is a great gift for any peanut butter lover!

11) Pura Vida Bracelets - Pura Vida Bracelets have a Charity collection, where they give back to a wide range of causes! Their bracelets are all handmade, so each one is unique, and they start at only $5!

My Pura Vida bracelet that shows support for Crohn's Disease.

12) Global Goods Partners - All items in the Global Goods Partners store were made by women artisans in over 20 countries! Every purchase you make goes towards supporting these women all over the world. They have everything from jewelry to home decor. 

13) WWF Gear by New Headings - New Headings donates 20% of all WWF Gear sales to the World Wildlife Fund. They have a lot of great outdoor gear and travel accessories.

14) The Nature Conservancy - Select donations to the item of your choice come with canteens or bags. Donations start at $25 and go up to $250. Gifts vary depending on the amount you choose to donate. This would be a great gift for a friend that loves hiking and exploring.

15) We Wood - WeWOOD's goal is to plant a tree for every watch they sell through their partners: Trees For The Future, Treedom, and American Forests,  Their eco-friendly, natural wooden watches are made from reclaimed and recycled wood and materials. A bit on the pricier side, but their watches are of great quality and are gorgeous!

16) Hand in Hand - Hand in Hand has a "Buy a bar, Give a bar" program where they will donate a bar of soap and a month of clean water to a child in need for every Hand in Hand product purchased. All their products are made in the USA, are vegan, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly. They have various bath products such as soap and sugar scrubs, and also fragrances. 

17) The Company Store - For every comforter purchased at The Company Store, a homeless child will receive a blanket through Family Promise and their affiliates. Their comforters range anywhere from $100 to $1,000 depending on style and size. This would be a great housewarming gift!

18) Ivory Ella - Ivory Ella donates 10% of their net profits to Save the Elephants, an organization that tracks, monitors and secures elephant populations. The majority of their products are Elephant themed, so great for an animal loving mom! They have lots of great clothing choices, jewelry, and accessories!

19) Sudara - Every purchase of Punjammies® and Sudara goods helps empower hundreds of women in India to live in freedom from exploitation. They have clothes for women of all sizes, ranging from XS Petite to XXL Tall.

20) Headbands of Hope - For every headband that is purchased from Headbands of Hope, they donate a headband to a child with cancer. Their hair accessories start range from $10 to $20.

23) Charlie's Project - Charlie's Project donates 20% of their proceeds or a minimum of $2 per legging to select charities.They have tops, skirts, dresses, and leggings in all sorts of prints. They remind me of Lularoe, but for a better cause! (They also have some clothing for kids!)

24) Panda -Panda makes a donation to Gift of Vision, an organization that helps get glasses and eye exams to those in need, for every pair of sunglasses they sell. For every watch Panda sales, they donate to Pencils of Promise, which helps provide schools in areas of need.

25) SoapBox - For every bar of soap you buy at SoapBox, they donate a bar to someone in need! Their soap products start at the just under $5! Their products are also cruelty-free and vegan!

26) Conscious Step - For every pair of socks you buy, Conscious Step donates to one of their many causes, which you can find a full list on their site. They have socks for both men and women. These would make great stocking stuffers!

27) Greater Good - Greater Good has various shops that support different causes. I have personally purchased from The Animal Rescue Site, where a portion of their profit goes towards helping rescued animals. They also have shops that help end hunger, support veterans, promote literacy, protect the rainforest, and fund research for breast cancerAlzheimer'sautism, and diabetes. All shops have a variety of items, ranging from clothes to home decor! You are sure to find a great gift that supports one of these great causes!

My kitchen mats I purchased from The Animal Rescue Site! You can find them here.

28) Twice As Warm - Twice As Warm sells hats, gloves, and scarves. Their mission is for every item you buy, they donate one to someone in need. All products are made in the USA. These would make great gifts for the holiday season!

29) Feed - Every purchase you makes from Feed, donates school meals to children in need. The site is set up so that you can see just how many meals your purchase will provide. They are known for their bags, but also have accessories, even some baby clothes! There are also diaper bags, which would be a great baby shower gift.

30) FIGS - Have a friend who's a medical professional? Then this site is for you! Every pair of scrubs that are purchased from FIGS, donates a pair of scrubs to another medical professional in need. They have scrubs for both women and men.

BONUS
Amazon Smile - I included this as a bonus as this is basically just you shopping on Amazon, but when you go through the "Smile" link you can pick an organization you would like a portion of your purchase to be donated to!
