Throughout the pages of The Succulent Wife, you will see numerous articles about companies and products that contribute to making this planet a better place to live on. Whether it is about helping the environment or about helping each other, we are always passionate about sharing their stories.

Thus, this Gift Guide is near and dear to us. The ideas shared here show us that we can all be conscious shoppers, make our gift recipient happy and, all at the same time, also greatly impact the life of someone less fortunate. It becomes a win-win for everyone. And it’s so easy to do!

UNICEF – Every year my mother would buy UNICEF Christmas cards as a way of supporting all their global efforts. UNICEF has changed a great deal since then. They now also offer a beautiful array of gifts such as as this Genuine Pearl Necklace ($48.00), this Men’s Alpaca Scarf ($40.00), Children’s Gifts and unique Christmas Ornaments ($22.00). See their entire line of beautiful gift ideas here. In addition, companies, such as, Disney, Gucci, and IKEA are also doing their part to end preventable childhood deaths and have partnered with UNICEF this holiday season. Check out their gifts here.
  Fair Trade USA – When something as simple as the purchase of a chocolate bar, a bag of coffee or a bar of soap can send a child to school or bring clean water to a village for the first time, why would we even look at buying these products anywhere else? Fair Trade USA is making a difference in the lives of farmers and workers around the world. Shop here for great gift ideas and here for the people that are hard to buy for.
Sustainable Kids – Buy an item (or two) from Sustainable Kids and it will arrive in a gift box which then can be filled with items such as, toothbrushes, tooth paste, flip flops, books and so on, for kids in Haiti. The box is postage-paid, so once it is filled just drop it in the mail. This is a great way to teach our children the importance of giving back.  Shop here.
  Prosperity Candles – We mention this organization in last year’s Fair Trade Gift Guide, but they are worth mentioning again. Prosperity Candles has expanded from just candles to candle accessories and gift baskets. Buy a gift and change a women’s life who has been displaced by war, political unrest or natural disasters.

And, here are some other companies that we love to support as they endeavor to each make a difference in the lives of people in need:

Laga Bags – Each bag is unique and hand sewn by Tsunami Survivors in Indonesia.
SchoolBagforKids – With every school bag purchase, another school bag with supplies goes to a child in need.
SittingTallerKids – With every purchase is one step closer to ending human trafficking.

Need more ideas? Take a look at last’s year’s gift guide titled “Impossible-to-buy-for Gift Guide“. In it, we mention organizations such GlobalGirlfriend.com (liberate a girl from a lifetime of servitude), Kiva, and Heifer International, all of which work at improving our world in their own way.

It does not take much to make this planet a better place. So, what did you buy?
