The Gifts That Give Back



Thanks to Laughing Man® Coffee for sponsoring this post.  All gift suggestions and opinions expressed herein are my own.

I think all of us have that one family member or friend who is almost impossible to buy gifts for. I know that for my family and boyfriend, I’m that person (sorry, everyone!). However, not all is doomed when it comes to picking out gifts for people like me, and I think if you’re in a similar situation these holidays, a good idea is to get them a gift that also gives back.

There’s a lot more meaning and thought behind a gift like this, as it’s not just another meaningless item that they might want to return for something else because it’s helping others! And these gifts aren’t just perfect for those people who are hard to buy for, they’re great for everyone!

In support of this idea, I’ve partnered with Laughing Man® Coffee to show you guys some of my favourite gifts that support others this holiday season. If you’re not familiar with Laughing Man® Coffee, it’s a brand that was co-founded by fellow Aussie, Hugh Jackman.In fact, he has a coffee shop here in New York City! But what’s great about Laughing Man® Coffeeis that since its inception, the brand has always strived to Make Every Cup Count by donating a portion of sales from each purchase to the Laughing Man® Foundation, which supports coffee farming communities and programs that ensure fair wages, and clear the way to sustainable health, growth and success for coffee farmers and their families. How great is that?!


Laughing Man® Coffee:

Because who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee during the holidays? All four varieties of premium Laughing Man® Coffee are Fair TradeTM Certified. The K-Cup® pods (16-ct for $11.49) and bagged (12 oz. for $9.49) coffee are available at Target and on Plus, as part of a continued commitment to sustainability, all Laughing Man® Coffee pods are now recyclable.

Sephora Stands FEARLESS Lipstick:

I love Sephora lipsticks, however this gorgeous red also supports a great cause. For every lipstick sold, Sephora gives $10 to Sephora Stands – a program dedicated to empowering women and positively impacting our communities.

Alex & Ani When Life Gives You Lemons Charm Bangle:

I adore this gorgeous charm bracelet (available in gold & silver). What’s even better about this bracelet is that Alex & Ani will donate 20% of the purchase price to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which helps to increase awareness of childhood cancer and to help fund pediatric cancer research.

Starling Candle:

I’ve got to admit, I’m candle obsessed. I also think they make lovely gifts, as most women (and some men!) I know also love receiving them as presents. I specifically love these candles as all Starling Candles support US businesses as all components are American made.
