Globalgiving.org lets you literally give a gift of giving. From microloans to medical care, the crowd-funded non-profit connects would-be-givers with thousands of worthy projects around the world (gift cards start at $10). 
Wrap up something ultra decadent from Kiehl’s limited edition Creme de Corps holiday collection. Featuring custom art designed by celebrated fashion duo Costello Tagliapietra, net proceeds up to $100K will help Feeding America provide one million meals to families in need (prices from $30, www.kiehls.com).
Who wouldn’t tumble for Pendleton’s tumbler? Designed for hot and cold beverages, a portion of the stainless steel travel cup’s sales benefit the United State’s National Park Service, in honor of its upcoming centennial ($25, pendelton-usa.com).
This holiday season, TOMS has partnered with Chemex to treat caffeine connoisseurs to the smoothest filtered cup of java possible—and one person in need to a week’s supply safe drinking water—with the purchase of this special edition, 8-cup coffeemaker. Its handsome glass carafe comes come wrapped in a polished wood collar, a blue leather tie and seriously good vibes ($44, Toms.com).
Each quarter, Causebox delivers $150’s worth of ethically made items sourced from socially conscious companies like Krochet Kids, LSTN Sound Co, Noonday and Salt Skill. A portion of proceeds also benefits charities like JoyJars, which brings cheer to kids with cancer (subscriptions from $50, causebox.com).
