If you are looking for employee or customer gifts that have meaning, try giving gifts that give back. Here are 5 great choices.
From S’well water bottles to gifts from Haiti projects, here are 5 gifts that give back:
S’well Water Bottles
Reducing the use of plastic is a big topic these days, and it seems like many people are trying to do what they can to be more eco-friendly. A S’well bottle makes the perfect gift for so many reasons. Not only do they come in a variety of cool designs and keep your beverages cold for up to 24 hours, but the brand does good for the community, too. S’well has provided over 320,000 reusable bottles to NYC public schools across all five boroughs, with the hopes it will eliminate the number of single-use plastic bottles. Source: Real Simple
FEED Woman on a Mission Tote
Every woman on the go knows you can never have too many tote bags. And this statement-making version comes from FEED, a company that makes fashionable and functional bags and accessories, and is renowned for their commitment to donating nutritious school lunches to children around the world. With each purchase of their tote, FEED donates 10 school meals to malnourished kids in need. The brand also works with local artisans and cooperatives to help provide sustainable livelihoods in small communities. We say skip the gift bag, and stuff this practical (and fierce) tote with goodies for your favorite girl boss. Source: NBC News Better

This set with a calendula petal-infused cleanser, toner and mask, plus a daily moisturizer, soothes and calms skin irritation at every step of your routine. With the purchase of this set, Kiehl’s will help support Feeding America’s mission to provide meals to families in need. Available through Biirchbox.
Alex and Ani Warm Hearts Charm Bracelet
Beautiful products hand-made by a cooperative of women in a rural village, this brand provides access to jobs at fair trade wages, education, health care, and avenues for building sustainable community. The second largest employer in a region of Haiti where over 100,000 people live with no electricity or public Haiti Projects makes a tangible impact on raising the quality of life for those who need it most.
