Giving is good for your health – that’s been proven.

This season, we’ve got plenty of gifts that will also help others.

Warby Parker

At Warby Parker, every pair of sunglasses and prescription spectacles sold provides one for someone in need.

TOMS at Dillard's

Ditto TOMS footwear, including the cute desert taupe suede Vista boot ($130) and black suede wedge booties ($120) at Dillard’s.
 

S'well

S’well’s chic, BPA-free water bottles keep drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 while also supporting clean water in vulnerable communities. The company, which seeks to reduce the use of disposable plastic bottles so they don’t foul land and sea, funds UNICEF USA and Drink Up as well as American Forests and (RED).

S’well bottles are available at Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Urban Outfitters. They typically range from $25 to $50 depending on style and size. Neiman’s even has one decorated with Swarovski crystals for $150.

Over at MAC, every cent from the sale of any Viva Glam lipstick is devoted to the MAC AIDS fund. Offered in vivid colors since 1994, Viva Glam lipsticks look great while doing good for women, men and children affected by HIV/AIDS.

The Akola holiday popup jewelry shop is entirely altruistic – all proceeds are reinvested in programs to help needy women in Dallas and Uganda.
 

Neiman Marcus Love to Give collection

Ten percent of the proceeds from Neiman Marcus’ Love to Give collection benefits youth arts education programs nationwide. There are over 55 Love to Give items, including starry mod tumblers and dessert plates, holiday pjs and Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks.

Kiehl’s Since 1851 collaborated with Disney to come up with four Mickey Mouse-embellished items whose net profits up to $100,000 will fund Feeding America. The Disney x Kiehl’s Since 1851 special editions are:

  • Collection for a Cause Set of Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Facial Cleanser (2.5 oz.), Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner (4.2 oz.), Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque (.47 oz.) and Ultra Facial Moisturizer (1 oz.), all in a Mickey Mouse tin for $45 (provides 350 meals).
  • Creme de Corps Grapefruit Whipped Body Butter (8 oz.) for $38 (355 meals).
  • Scented Hand Cream Trio, one 2.5 oz. tube each of Grapefruit, Coriander and Lavender packaged in three separate boxes for $35 (310 meals).
  • Hydration Essentials Gift Set: A holiday set of the brand’s hydration essentials, including Creme de Corps (2.5 oz), Ultra Facial Cleanser (2.5 oz.), Ultra Facial Cream (7 ml.), Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (30 ml.) and Lip Balm #1 for $29 (212 meals).

The effort will provide 1.1 million meals throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico this holiday season.

“It’s staggering that one in six children in America do not know where they will get their next meal, and we are humbled that the Kiehl’s community can help do their part to alleviate that uncertainty,” notes Chris Salgardo, president of Kiehl’s USA.
