I think this might be one of my all-time favourite Gift Guides to share. There’s nothing better than finding a gift that not only is amazing to receive under the Christmas tree but also a gift that gives back in some way, shape or form. I have sifted through a ton and sites and brands and compiled a roundup of 10 items that do exactly that!
The best part about this gift guide is the fact that these items can be purchased for men, women, AND kids! The beanie from Love Your Melon comes in a variety of colours and sizes to keep your entire family warm over the holidays, the sweaters from Everlane also come in women and men’s sizes and the electric toothbrush from Bruush (great for the whole family!) comes in black, pink, or white!
Check out the list below to find out how each of these companies give back!
Fifty percent (50%) of net profit from the sale of all Love Your Melon products is given to support charitable programming through the Love Your Melon Fund and the nonprofits they support. Love Your Melon helps to create therapeutic experiences and fund charitable programming initiatives for children and families battling cancer.

ThirdLove bras are my absolute FAVOURITE bras for a few reasons. They are beautiful, comfortable, and they have also partnered with renowned organizations such as I Support the Girls, Soles4Souls, Good360, and St. Anthony’s to donate bras to help women make powerful life changes. To date, Third Love has donated over $20M in bras!!
If you haven’t heard of Bruush electric toothbrushes then you are missing out! They come in a variety of colours and have multiple settings for all of your teeth cleaning needs! Bruush has also partnered with A Reason to Smile (ARTS), a non-profit organization dedicated to improving oral health in developing nations.
