Last-Minute Gifts That Give Back December 16 2017
With only a week and a day until Christmas, we are down to the wire on getting gifts for friends or family. The deadline for OM Soul Orders is Sunday 12/17! Luckily, there are a few other shops that have great last-minute gifts that also give back in some way.
Here are some of my faves:
1. Pura Vida
Every Pura Vida product is carefully handcrafted by artisans around the world. The commitment to their craft is conveyed through the quality of their work. The artisan’s dedication to the “pura vida” way of life is demonstrated in the seemingly endless color combinations and innovative styles. Each bracelet is as unique as the person wearing it. Since 2010 the company has donated over 1.5 million dollars to various charities. Best of all, you can still order in time for a Christmas and bracelets start under $10.
If you like rescue dogs and coffee, boy are you going to LOVE the new monthly subscription box from One Heart Coffee. (Founded by one of my Boss Babe Training grads!) Each box has a different adoptable dog and donates a proceed of the proceeds to an animal rescue. This month is going to Chews Life Dog Rescue. The December box also features a magical fresh coffee roast and a The Treekisser "All I want for Christmas" tee. There are just a few boxes left, READY to ship and ready to arrive under your tree in time for Christmas!
3. Ivory Ella
This company has donated over 1.3 million to Save the Elephants organization in addition to various other nonprofits since the company's inception just 2 years ago. They have a bunch of great tops, bottoms and accessories featuring one of my favorite animals, the majestic elephant. Everything in the shop is still available for a Christmas delivery date AND can even get ONE-day shipping when you order from Amazon!
4. my TaT
I just discovered this company and I'm obsessed! They have awesome, inspirational and fun temporary tattoos BUT they also have some gorgeous bags, hats, jewelry and other accessories. Portions of the proceeds go back to various earth orgs. My favorite is a canvas make-up bag with "Peaceful Warrior" across the front. Also, available for ONE-day shipping from Amazon. Check it here!
Tribe Azure seeks to change the world through creating person to person commerce from communities and markets where there is little to no representation and bringing it into the larger retail ecosystem. Their vision is not to solicit charity, but one of empowering community transformation. The main goal is to eradicate poverty and transform communities through our unique innovative market based solution. They carry everything from jewelry to bags to decorative pieces for the home. My favorite is the OM Scarf Wrap. *insert heart eyes emoji* Which coincidentally, is also available on Amazon (for under $18) with prime shipping to get under your tree in time for the holiday!
