5 Give-Back Brands to Shop for Christmas

by Susannah McQuitty

Shop brands that give back with non-profit partnerships.


Christmas shopping is a perfect opportunity to make every purchase count—and bringing awareness to brands that give back helps support charities that work year-round to make the world a better place.

Here are five brands and items we found with awesome givebacks!

Fire Dept. Coffee

Coffee is a great go-to gift for the beverage fan in your family, and Fire Dept. Coffee makes it a great buy. After all, 10% of net proceeds are donated to help provide essential resources and assistance to first responders who have been injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges—and they even have a subscription service!

Love Your Melon

You’ve probably heard of this awesome brand’s adorable and comfy beanies. Love Your Melon donates 50% of their profits to various nonprofit organizations fighting pediatric cancer, and it gets even better with their blankets and giant poms.


Looking for stocking stuffers? Yoobi makes the cutest school supplies and has a great giveback to boot. For every Yoobi item purchased, the company donates school supplies to a classroom in need—and these items are seriously adorable.

One Grid

Candles are always in during the holidays, but One Grid is taking these awesome home accents to the next level. For every candle bought, they send a solar light to someone who does not have electricity, eliminating the need for harmful kerosene lamps. The scents sound decadent, too, from French lavender to tea leaf and tobacco.

United by Blue

Durable, colorful, and responsible gear and goods are the name of the game for United by Blue. They remove 1 pound of trash from the ocean for every item sold, and prioritize sustainable materials and ethical manufacturing. There’s plenty to choose from, with everything from candles and socks to hoodies and denim jackets!

Wherever you shop, do a little good

You could also make a donation to a charity in a family member’s name for Christmas—we can always recommend our giveback partner, Healing Waters International, and the incredible work they do making clean water access a reality around the world.

No matter who you’re shopping for this season, you can sweeten the gift by supporting brands that give back.
