Shop This Year's Best Gifts That Give Back Before They're All Gone

Over the years, I’ve learned one important lesson about holiday gift shopping: the earlier I start, the less I dread it.

I actually really love giving gifts, but the time crunch to find something special and meaningful for everyone on my list? Not so much. That’s why I’m starting early this year and I’m going out of my way to try to get as many people I’m shopping for gifts that give back. As someone who loves gifting, it brings me even more joy to know that my gifts are doing some good in the world.

You too? Then take a peek at some of my favorite gifts that give back this year:

Nude Envie Farrah Fawcett Lipstick ($38) 


Done in collaboration with Patrick Foley at Barney's New York, Nude Envie's limited-edition Farrah Fawcett Lipstick captures the iconic sheer silky and glossy pink shade that Farrah Fawcett loved to wear. Proceeds from sales of the $38 rosy-nude Farrah lipstick will benefit the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which focuses on cancer awareness, research, and prevention. 

Defend & Hydrate Perfect Winter Routine Gift Set


This hydrate and defend gift set by Nuria includes the brand's Defend Gentle Exfoliator, Defend Triple Action Eye Cream, Hydrate Refreshing Micellar Water, Hydrate Revitalizing Night Jelly Treatment, and a cute cosmetics bag. All proceeds from the holiday gift sets will be donated to She’s the First organization.
