Today’s gift guide is a personal favorite — all about gifts that come from people, companies, and small businesses working to make the world a better place. If you haven’t seen this post in years past, this guide is curated by my brother. He’s always done an amazing job of finding + supporting brands that are doing big things in our communities, and I am so excited to share them with you today!

Everlane has a strong commitment to maximizing sustainability and responsibility across all aspects of their business. This Everyone Cashmere Crew and these rain boots are great gifts for anyone on your list this year!

Haptic Lab places a strong emphasis on minimizing the environmental impacts of their production methods and creating impact in communities all across the country. They offset 100% of their carbon footprint and donate kites to Title 1 classrooms in underserved questions. This Pillow Globe is a fun way for little ones to start learning all about the planet and our place on it.

Daughter of the Land donates 1% of their sales to nonprofit organizations focused on women’s rights and protecting our planet. This year, they’re directing funds to Planned Parenthood and Greenpeace. This bath soak set looks so luxurious and comes in the prettiest compostable packaging.

Miir is another incredible brand we’ve highlighted in years past. Products like their wine set help fund transparent giving projects at the intersection of communities and the environment, totaling over $2.6 million dollars donated to date to organizations like Charity: Water, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and the Trust for Public Land.

Like all Mafia products, the Corse Tote is made entirely of retired sails (so cool!), a durable, upcycled material with a one-of-a-kind look showcasing the value of buying less but buying better.

Made entirely of kitchen plastic scraps and renewable sugarcane, the reBoard cutting board from Material Kitchen is a trusty go-to in the kitchen that you can feel good about, as 50% of sales of the To Pó-Po with Love colorway goes to Heart of Dinner, an organization that delivers meals to more than 500 Asian American elders in New York City each week.

This Soothe Rose Self-Care Gift Set is the perfect way to pamper yourself or a loved one and is a great gift for anyone who needs some extra self-care. Klei donates a portion of each online sale to the Brooklyn Community Foundation and Environmental Defense Fund.

In addition to filtering out all of the dirty stuff found in everyday tap water — from microplastics to PFAS, pesticides, sand, and more — this sleek pitcher helps provide clean water to those in need. For every LifeStraw product sold, a child in need receives access to safe water for an entire year.

Hand dyed and crafted in New York, these one-of-a-kind adjustable leashes from Found My Animal can make you and your pup look good and feel good, as proceeds from all sales go to worthy animal rescue organizations across the country.

Through ongoing partnerships with organizations like the ACLU, World Wildlife Fund, and The Nature Conservancy, Outdoor Voices is working to generate funds for and drive education around voting rights, sustainability, and conservation. These new Teddy Gloves are a must-have for chilly climates!

The world’s first compostable watch band, Pela has brought their stylish, cutting-edge material technology to the Apple Watch game. Beyond just providing the most sustainable watch band on the market, Pela donates a percentage of every sale to Ocean Cleanup and Preservation Initiatives.

A perennial feature on all impact lists, Patagonia continues to set the standard when it comes to doing good business. This year, they took that one step further by cementing themselves as a for-purpose company. We are big Patagonia fans in our house, but this Women’s Recycled Wool Crewneck Sweater caught my eye — the perfect cozy addition to your winter wardrobe!

Since day one, Bombas has had a culture of giving back. To date, their buy one, give one program has amounted to 75 million pairs of socks being donated to a variety of organizations, like Title 1 schools, overnight shelters, and transitional living shelters.

This gift guide is always a wonderful reminder that little actions can go a long way. So many inspiring initiatives to support this holiday season!
