The next time you’re buying a gift for someone special in your life, why not make the occasion even more meaningful? When you buy gifts from companies that give back, nonprofit organizations benefit from the proceeds of these special gift purchases.  

Choosing the best gifts that give back

Few feelings are more fulfilling than giving back or contributing to society in a meaningful way. Gifts that give back can take various forms and support all types of important causes. When buying a gift, you should decide if there’s a type of cause you’re particularly passionate about supporting. For example, you could buy a gift that supports children’s causes, animal and environmental causes, causes that support women, and so many more. If there’s one that’s close to your heart, try to choose a gift that aligns with the interests of the person whom you’re buying from the selection that supports your chosen cause.

Additionally, you can look at what percentage of the proceeds go to that cause. All gifts that give back share part of the proceeds with various nonprofit organizations, like the Australian Wildfire Recovery Effort, for example. In some cases, companies even donate 100% of the proceeds. Alternatively, you can buy purely from the position of the type of gift you’re looking for for someone special, and can smile knowing the proceeds will be put to good use by those who need it. 

How we identified the best gifts that give back

We looked at items from brands that are committed to giving back, as well as what some of the most noteworthy causes are to give back to. Additionally, our overall selection is diverse to ensure that there’s a great gift for everyone. 

We identified some of the best causes for 2023, which include supporting the Ukraine people, as well as the rights of queer black people, and selected gifts that give back to these important causes, like bracelets, blankets, and items of jewelry. We also covered various types of gifts, from luxury and food items, to corporate and baby gifts. This way, you can select according to what you’re looking for while resting assured that the proceeds will support something worthwhile.

Additionally, we looked at some of the most prominent issues we face as a society today, and chose various gifts that support animal and environmental causes, children’s and women’s causes, and more. We included items like jewelry, gift sets, and clothing accessories, to name a few, so you can select a gift that suits the interests of whom you’re buying for in the process. 

Tips for buying the best gifts that give back

  1. Choose a cause
    The great thing about buying a gift that gives back is you can help to support a cause of your choosing. If you’re passionate about protecting animals or the environment, for example, find a company or brand that supports that type of cause and then buy a gift from them.
  2. Consider the proceeds
    When a gift is purchased, part of the proceeds will go to the organization or charity. In some instances, companies even give 100% of the proceeds. Always remember to check how much or what percentage is given, especially if you’re buying a gift with the sole intent of giving back.
  3. Make it a habit
    We give gifts throughout the year for birthdays and various special occasions. Why not make it a habit to buy a gift that gives back every time? Not only will you be gifting something great to someone you love, but you’ll be making a meaningful societal contribution in the process.
