Every year on #GivingTuesday, which was yesterday this year, we typical celebrate with Mommy Nearest at the 92ndY and donate toys and clothes for those in need. Here is our super cute family picture from last year:

But this year, I was home with a sick Branden on this cold day as he needed some time to rest and fight off a cough. But, this makes me feel even stronger about adding these beautiful motherhood holiday gifts that give back to my shopping list this year for all the mamas, mamas-to-be, or kiddos! I can’t stress enough how much every penny from every purchase helps these charities tremendously as they do their amazing work all year long.

Holiday Gifts That Give Back {Motherhood Edition}


 1. I really just can’t get over the cuteness of these Felt Panda Baby Booties from Global Goods Partners! The purchase of these booties helps change women’s lives through the sale of their fair trade goods, creating better lives for their families.

2. This holiday season, Whole Foods teamed up with PBS Kids to create a toy collection where 100% of the proceeds go towards promoting curiosity, critical thinking, and knowledge in children.

3. A symbol of family, strength, and good luck, the elephant charms are playing a big role in the way that Ann Taylor is giving back this holiday season. You can choose any of their elephant charm pieces this season and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through January 31st, 2015.

4. We all love our Aden + Anais swaddles – they are beautiful, functional, and now give back in a major way! Ever purchase of the (Product)RED Swaddle Blanket, designed in collaboration by Jessica Alba, Rachel Zoe, and Gwen Stefnai will donate 100% of it’s proceeds to The Global Fund.

5. What mom doesn’t need large amounts of coffee to help get her going everyday? This Fa La La La Coffee is fair trade and perfect for holiday get togethers or hectic mornings!

6.Every Mama deserves a special something that makes her feel great and help her holiday look pop! This Kufic Quilted Foldover comes from a wonderful company called Popinjay, which has set out to break the rules of fashion create equal opportunity for everyone on the planet.

7. We have a tradition in our home of adding to our son’s ornament collection each year so that whenever he moves out on his own, he will have a special collection to take with him – the way my parents did for me. But I also think its nice to add to mommy and daddy’s collection, too! Ten Thousand Village’s Filigree Moon Ornament is simply beautiful and it’s purchase helps skilled artisans collect a stable income year round.
