Give Back This Christmas: 2017 Charity Gift Guide!

Hello, hello, hello!
So, after a recent thread on my twitter about gifts that you can get from charities I thought, why not put it in a gift guide? I, personally, find that there’s no better gift than a gift that’s good and does good by giving back to those who really need it. So, I’ve got some fabulous gifts and charities coming up in this gift guide, let’s go!
Abbey (abbeylouisarose) has written a great post with a similar theme, read it HERE
Bridge Water Candles

Whilst not technically a charity, this company donates part of their profits to Rice Bowls, who provide food for orphaned children. It’s a lovely thought, and their candles look amazing too!
Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK have some really lovely gifts in their store, it was difficult to only choose a few to feature! Plus, they’re selling cards and gift wrap too!
Peacocks also sell some items for cancer research UK, including these gorgeous earrings for only £4! Screen Shot 2017-11-12 at 11.00.05
Asda’s Tickled Pink Range

Again, not technically a charity, although profit received does benefit a charity. This range has got some adorable pj sets, and of course, fluffy socks!
British Heart Foundation
This is a charity very close to my heart, and they have some lovely stocking fillers in their online shop which you can give as gifts! They even have Pippa Middleton’s recipe book if you’re into cooking…
The British Hedgehog Preservation Society
Know someone who loves hedgehogs?! This one’s for them! TBHPS have some lovely gifts on their site, including the super adorable cookie cutter. You get to give someone something they’ll love, that’s also helped something that they love, perfect!
Key To Freedom

This charity made me cry. Previously on sale at Topshop, this company make scarves and other accessories which get signed by the woman (usually rescued from a vulnerable situation), and the profit goes directly into her bank account.
Moleskin’s One Red Day Collection

I know many people who use and love Moleskin products, especially for bullet journals! This special collection supports the fight against AIDS by donating a percentage of the profit to the Global Fund.
Oxfam

Oxfam have an incredible range of gifts that they call ‘unwrapped’. These gifts are donations to the charity, in which you help to fund something. Visit their site via the link above for more!
Lady Garden- Selfridges
How cute are these tops?! They’re available from Selfridges, and aim to raise awareness amongst young women about gynaecological cancer and its symptoms!
UNICEF
This was by far the best range of gifts I found on a charity website! From beautiful crafted boardgames, to jewellery and back packs, this site is really great for variety.
Oliver Bonas + The Eve Appeal
Oliver Bonas has partnered with the charity The Eve Appeal for a special collection in which donations are made to this wonderful charity. These items are so gorgeous, and perfect for gifting!
Give As You Live
Anndddd finally, last but not least, if you are going to do some online shopping this Christmas, why not do so through Give As You Live? Every time you visit a shop through their website and make a purchase, a small donation is given to your chosen charity. It’s free and simple, and you’ll be helping out some charities too! I’ve included a section from their site below, as they explain it better than I do:

Amazon Smile
Thanks to Hunida for her comment and for letting me know that amazon run a similar scheme called Amazon Smile! I will 100% be using this on my orders in future 🙌🏻
And that’s all from me today! This is definitely not an exhaustive list so, if you find/know of anymore gifts that will benefit a charity this Christmas, feel free to leave links in the comments and I will continue to update this post to include them (with credit to you of course!).
Love,

    this is such a good post idea!! i feel like christmas is a time where people just stupidly spend their money and i was never aware of all the products that are usually bought at christmas, can be bought from charities! For example, the socks, i buy my friends those fluffy socks every year, this year i’m definitely going to get the tickled pink socks so that my money benefits a cause!

    Brilliant post! It’s great to give back at Christmas time and support those in need. I had no idea all these companies supported charities so it was lovely to read about them in your post. I definitely want to try support more charities and those who need it.

    This is such a helpful post, it’s really amazing hun. Cancer Research UK have some gorgeous brand new Christmas items like candles and cushions in their stores. I am going to be checking out the hedgehog society!

    I truly loved this post and will check out all of these sites before I shop anywhere else. I’ve never heard of “Give As You Live” I hope the site is available in the US.
    AmazonSmile is Amazon’s version of Give As You Love. They have all the same products and prices as Amazon but they donate a little to any organization of your choosing at no extra charge to the buyer!

    The Hedgehog preservation society – awww! I will definitely need to support them soon, and they have such gorgeous toys as well! I really love the idea of giving back with your gifts, it’s so important! I wrote a post along a similar vein a few weeks ago and I have linked this one in it when it goes live this weekend because you’ve got so many great ideas here!
