A Look at Gifts That Give Back

If you're shopping for birthdays, holidays or other occasions, you can't go wrong with gifts that give back. Williams Sonoma has items that when you buy them, a portion of the proceeds goes to a charity. You'll not only delight your recipient but also help those in need when you choose one or more of these thoughtful presents.

What are Gifts That Give Back?

When you buy these gifts, a charity gets a donation. You'll find coffee mugs, cooking accessories, candles and other thoughtful items in this category. Here are some of the charities you can help:

  • St. Jude: This charity is dedicated to helping children with serious diseases. Not only does this organization pay for lifesaving medical care, it also helps provide for families as well. Some of these families have to stay in hotels and miss work, but with St. Jude's help, the burden is lessened. This organization doesn't turn anyone away based on their ability to pay and relies on donations from the public.
  • FEED: FEED is a foundation that works to eradicate hunger and malnutrition around the world. The products from this company also help feed schoolchildren whose families cannot afford to purchase lunch.
  • Love is Love: The proceeds from Love is Love items go to help The Human Rights Campaign. This organization works to bring awareness to the issues of LGBTQ individuals and fights to ensure their civil rights are upheld.
  • No Kid Hungry: This program is devoted to making sure no child suffers from hunger. The organization provides in-school and after-school meals to needy children, along with summer meals to ensure kids don't go hungry when school is out.

Create a Thoughtful Presentation

You can make your gift even more special by presenting it in a stylish manner. Here are some ideas for gift-giving:

  • Wrap your gift in colorful tissue paper and tuck it into a gift bag for an easy yet elegant presentation.
  • For boxed gifts, all you need to do is wrap it in decorative paper and add a coordinating ribbon.
  • Looking for more than one gift item? Check out the other gifts available at Williams Sonoma, which range from kitchenware to gourmet food.

Although shopping for the perfect present can be difficult, you really can't go wrong when you choose gifts that give back. Not only will your recipient feel special, you'll also be helping people in need.
