Inspired by UNHCR’s news stories COP 21: Climate Change, Refugees and Couture and the #GivingTuesday movement, this year let’s value of how we are all globally connected and responsible in nurturing, protecting and guarding generations to come.
Giving back is always in style; in this spirit we searched for some of the most philanthropically stylish and cool gifts you can give yourself and everyone on your list.
Here are 18 of our favorites:
For The One and Only
Get this luxurious handcrafted silk robe for your One and Only while helping 102 children get measles vaccination. Yes, she will adore you more and more, AND she might want you to see her in this. Oooh, bonus point! 😉
For that “Can’t wait to get next to you” scent, go for this All Natural LURK BS003 Eau de Toilette. It’s a perfume oil concentrate suited for men and women alike. No water, no alcohol, no preservatives, no stabilizers, no additives, LURK transcends gender, age, race, attitude and affliction. Seriously.

Now that’s what we called DOUBLE win!
A breathtaking sterling silver clutch purse that’s perfect for a night out or a formal gala. (Hey, it also works as home décor!) Get this exquisite, petite clutch purse to help 239 children get polio vaccine…and to swoop your special someone up her feet (of course)!
For The Ones Taking Care of The World
This Jao GOE Oil is 100% natural unique oil that replaces the natural oil that everyone tend to lose due to age, environmental stress and weather. This may never cross your mind, but it’s really awesome that we’d say this is THE perfect gift to protect that special someone against the elements, and to show that special someone – who are always busy taking care of the world, that we love them and care for their health and wellbeing. Go get a handful of this for them and gift-wrap nicely!
For The Uber Stylish
What’s more cool than a tie that can show-offs a passion of charity, art, and children’s welfare? An original children artwork, this colorful tie is surely a mood booster!
This one is so freakin’ awesome, everyone should get one for themselves. We mean it. Every purchase supports SFMoMA’s exhibitions and education programs.
We all know that one can never have too many sunglasses. So let’s get this one, and feel good about it because Warby Parker is in partnership with a non-profit called Vision Spring, and for every pair of glasses it sells, it distributes another to someone in need in the developing world.
For The Nature Lover and Gardener At Heart
When that special person likes nature but doesn’t really have much time to take care of plants, we’d say this one is the perfect gift! Get a handful, the more the merrier. Your purchase supports California Academy of Sciences mission to explore, explain and sustain life.
For The Super Organized
Get this wallet to let that someone be more organized, and help 32 children in developing countries to get measles immunization.
I’ll let this one speaks for itself 😉
For The Foodies
A classic burlap FEED Bag filled with sweet and savory goodies, that will hit all the right flavor notes in your special someone’s mouth and also provides 25 school meals for children around the world. Let’s all say: Delicious-ness! (yes, it’s a made-up word)
For The Athletes, The Travelers and The Adventurers
We may not all be athletes but we do work our butt out at the gym, and run a marathon or two, correct? Working out is very important, and having someone giving us this Mio Gel that can boosts us into action and helps recover after the workout is totally appreciated. So if you have a gym buddy, or a bro and sis who are into workout, why not give them this gel? They’ll be happy to know that you support their lifestyle and that the gift contributes to giving joy for seriously ill patients in hospitals.
