With Christmas right around the corner, take the extra step this year to find a gift that can give to more than one person. Whether that’s one other recipient or a hundred who can benefit. We’ve found gifts such as apparel, skin care, backpacks, tech items and more. Keep scrolling to find our top items that are something for your loved one with a little extra going to someone in need.

Toms is a great company that gives back to the community. Not only do they give a pair of shoes to someone in need after every purchase, they also give eyewear, clean water, and safe birth. Our top pick for men is the Sable Nubuck Chukka Boot. This boot is very versatile to pair with jeans or slacks alike. It’s also currently on sale for $90 and is available in three different color options. For women, the Desert Taupe Suede Vista Boot is a great option for winter weather. It features a water-resistant exterior, faux fur-lining, and cushioned insoles for all day comfort. 

S’well is a proud partner of UNICEF USA that helps provide clean and safe water to the world’s most vulnerable communities. With every purchase S’well donates money to countries that need clean water most. My favorite S’well Water Bottle is the Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel White Marble Design that is $45 and is available in 23 different color options. 

Give the gift of great skin care with L’Occitane’s  luxury shower gel, body cream, and more. With each purchase of a Shea Butter Collection or a Shea Butter Deluxe Collection Gift Set, L’Occitane will donate $4 from the purchase to help thousands of children in need of skin care. All of their products smell amazing and are extremely hydrating! I am personally gifting one of these sets to my mother for the holidays. 

Funds will help provide Vitamin A supplements to children. Vitamin A is essential for immune system functions and the survival, growth and development of children. The above claim is calculated based on the average total cost, including delivery, to provide Vitamin A supplementation for one child in South Asia or sub-Saharan Africa for one year. The price of Vitamin A supplementation may vary depending on country specific operations. UNICEF does not endorse any brand, service or product.

Amazon Red Echo (2nd Generation) is a hot ticket item this year. If you are looking for an awesome gift for a family member and want to give back, Amazon will donate $10 from the sale to (RED)’s efforts to end AIDS. The Amazon Echo can work in every room of your home and can play music, make calls, set alarms and timers, answer questions and much more. 

Lastly, State Bags is working to give every child a backpack for school. For every bag purchased, one fully stocked backpack is hand-delivered to an American child in need. Their backpacks come in a variety of colors, patterns and have prices ranging from $45 to $495.  Our top pick is the Foldover Top City Packback. I love its roll-top design and modern look.
