NYC Recessionista’s Gift Guide: Gifts that Give Back

All this week, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite picks for holiday gifts!

If you haven’t started your holiday shopping yet, then perhaps this will give you some hints!  And most importantly — every single one of these gifts will be under $100!

I’m kicking things off with gifts that give back to charity … something I strive to do year-round.

1) A pair of TOMS corduroy slip-ons in gray … for every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS gives a pair of new shoes to a child in need.
2) Kiehl’s creme de corps lotion in the Kenny Scharf designed bottle … 100% of net profits from the sale of these benefit children’s charities.
3) A Same Sky beaded woven bracelet … these bracelets are made of Rwandan fabrics, decorated with hand-blown glass beads, and help provide employment to HIV-positive women in Africa.
4) A FEED printed tote bag … each of these handcrafted bags provides 15 school meals to children in Guatemala.
5) Chantecaille elephant eyeshadow palette … this collection supports the work of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
