8 Gift Ideas to Give Back and Show You Care

Now more than ever, we want to show those we love that we are thinking of them.

To say thank you to those working on the front lines, to celebrate a birthday or other event, or just to remind your loved one that you are there for them, sending a heartfelt gift is a great way to spread joy.

We’ve gathered a list of gifts that not only brighten up your loved ones’ day, but also give back to the community during this time. At Brilliant Earth, all of our gifts give back, as 5% of our net profits are donated to benefit mining communities in the areas where we operate.

Bring the Outdoors, In

Lula’s Garden donates part of their profits to provide clean water around the world. Their clear care instructions make it easy for anyone to develop a green thumb and will help to brighten your loved ones’ at-home workstations!

Get Cooking

Many of us missing the dining out experience while following stay-at-home guidelines, so it is the perfect time to try out new recipes that have been waiting on your Pinterest board. For those that need an equipment upgrade, proceeds from Made In Cookware’s Southern Smoke Collection provide emergency relief to food and beverage industry workers.

Pop the Bubbly

Whether it be for a special occasion, like a virtual engagement party or bridal shower, or just because, sending a bottle of champagne is a fun and thoughtful gift. One Hope Wine always gives back with each bottle purchase and has added donation opportunities to help in the current climate, such as the addition of WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, and opportunities to host a Virtual Tasting and donate the proceeds.

Kick Up the Caffeine

We are so grateful for all of the front-line heroes keeping us safe, including firefighters and paramedics. Fire Department Coffee gives back 10% of proceeds to support ill or injured first responders. We’re all surely going through more coffee while brewing at home rather than the office, so now is a great time to send a unique bag of beans to a coworker. They even have whiskey and bourbon infused coffee beans – sign us up!

Do Something for the Kids

Social isolation can be especially tough on kids who are used to seeing their friends every day at school or day-care. Sending a snuggly friend from Cuddle & Kind to the kiddos in your life also donates 10 meals to feed children worldwide.

Treat Yourself to Some Self-Care

Encourage more hand washing, and get something nice for yourself!

Originally designed for recently-tattooed skin that is especially sensitive, 100% of net profits of Dr.Woo’s Daily Gentle Soap are donated to Baby2Baby, an organization working tirelessly to ensure working families across America have what’s needed during these trying times. Their soaps are offered at a variety of prices, so that shoppers can choose how much they are able to give. Even with extra hand washing, this bar should keep hands feeling soft and moisturized.

Complete a self-care kit to yourself or a friend with a spring-scented candle from Otherland, which will give back an additional 10% to food banks in NYC, or a gift set from The Body Shop – they’ve committed to donating 30,000 units of cleaning materials to shelters and senior communities low on these essential supplies.

Think Locally

Many of us are looking for ways to support our local small businesses that are currently closed. Check out Keep Your City Smiling to purchase a box in support of small and medium-sized businesses such as coffee roasters, bakers, creatives, and artisans from your city. If your city isn’t included, consider buying you and your loved one gift cards to a favorite restaurant, which you can save for when you are able to dine together, or send over a box of treats from your favorite bakery.

Give A Gift that Sparkles

Keep your loved one close to your heart with matching Silver Heart Diamond Pendants. We are donating 100% of sales from this pendant to GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund. A true gift from the heart, this delicate sterling silver pendant sparkles with a stunning diamond.
