Gifts are even more special when they help to make a positive difference in the world. We know it can be hard to find the perfect gift, especially now with the majority of holiday shopping done online, so we thought we’d share a handful of creative options that will bring both delight and meaningful impact in the world.

Each of these products and brands give back to various causes through Pledgeling’s award-winning ‘Give & Grow’ Shopify app. It’s the easiest way for online stores and shoppers to give back not just during the holiday season, but all year long.

Let us know if you purchase any of these options by sharing and tagging @pledgeling on social media! We’d love to see your gifts that give back. Happy Holidays!
