December is here and this means we have officially entered into the most festive month of the year. With Christmas right around the corner, our clients often ask us for gift suggestions. We love to remember that Christmas is about giving and not just about receiving, and so with this in mind here are some of our favorite brands which allow you to give a holiday gift while giving a little something back at the same time. Be it for a friend or a relative, here are some great ideas which allow you to give something twice, with proceeds contributing to a worthy cause.
1. The Body Shop
Discover why giving has never felt so good. This year when you buy one of their specially-selected gifts, you’ll be helping them to provide over six million educational lessons in war-torn areas around the globe. From make-up to bath products to gift baskets, the Body Shop has something for everyone, no matter what gender or age. Click here to see their selection.
2. Toms Shoes
With their One for One campaign, for every pair of comfy canvas TOMS shoes you give this Christmas, a second pair goes to a child in need. TOMS are also currently promoting the 12 days of Christmas giving from December 1st-12th, which donates a portion of its proceeds to a different charity every day. Click here to learn more.
