6 Great Charity Gifts Ideas: Gifts That Give Back And Make A Difference
5 minutes read
As Ruth Carter Stapleton beautifully said: “Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.” If you are scouring the internet for simple ways to give back and show support to those in need by purchasing charity gifts for Christmas, we’ve got your holiday shopping list covered.
Not only will these selections make your Christmas a little brighter, but your smiles wider and hearts fuller. No, it doesn’t necessarily involve a monetary donation.
Beauty Daily compiled a Christmas gift guide full of covetable presents that also give back to charitable causes: from gift-with-purpose limited sets to brands donating to food banks, humanitarian, and environmental charities.
Christmas gifts that give back
Many great charity gifts in the market, whether it’s beauty, fashion, tech, home, food, or anything in between, are tied to a worthy charity. Or, they have signed up for a deserving positive impact pledge, which you can purchase and spread to fam and friends while donating to a noble cause.
Here we listed six of our great charity gift favourites.
Although it’s a 90s hair trend accessory, scrunchies are still cool, so giving them as a present for someone special this Christmas will surely flatter hearts. Not only it is a celeb go-to hair tie these days, but we also love Scrunchies by The Silk Collection because unlike traditional hair ties which tug on your hair, causing hair damage and breakage, these large silk scrunchies are made from natural silk fabric, which reduces friction to prevent split ends and hair damage.

If your recipient is a statement tee wearer, they will love this Bella Freud ‘Peace and Love’ T-shirt, £25 from War Child, a UK-based charity for children affected by conflict.
