6 Gifts That Give Back for Women

Updated: Mar 11

When it comes to buying gifts for someone with a big heart, we can make an extra-special impact when we support a cause they believe in. Of course, donating in their name is nice, but it can also feel good to have something token to wrap up as a reminder that you admire them for caring, or that you care too.

Several fantastic organizations are helping disadvantaged women who live in this world with us. Women make up the majority of people who are trafficked, and the majority of domestic violence victims. That's not to say that men aren't victimized as well - but women are targeted at a much higher rate. When you support a charity helping women, you're giving the organization funding to continue its mission, helping raise awareness about its cause, and bringing the movement forward in baby steps to its goal of ending violence against women, human trafficking, or inequality. You're also telling victims and the people who support them that there are people who care about them, and it can give them the encouragement they need to continue the fight.

International Women's Day is March 8, 2024. Whether you want to support a cause close to your heart or gift something for a friend who wants to see changes in the world, you can show your support for vulnerable women and get something neat to show you or a loved one cares when you shop gifts that give back for women from these great organizations.

tote bag that fights human trafficking

The Tote Project hopes to end human trafficking through awareness. You can help spread the word by carrying one of their bags. These bags come in several eye-catching designs and can be used as your daily carry-it-all bag, or your reusable shopping bag. The Tote Project is women-owned and uses ethical manufacturing processes to create its bags in India, where they employ women who have survived abuse or are at risk for trafficking. Their efforts help support women to bring them out of vulnerable positions where they might fall victim to those who would take advantage of them, or already have. Your purchase gives hope to women who need it and gives a gift that shows you care.

socks that stop violence against women

Conscious Step Socks supports many organizations that are trying to make a difference in the world through human rights, animal welfare, and environmental campaigns. Depending on the pairs you buy, you could be saving dogs and cats, planting trees, or even supporting space exploration, if that's where your heart lies. This gift box aims to stop violence against women by supporting the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women - an organization that gives grants to initiatives worldwide that show they're making a difference when it comes to reducing violence against girls and women, so they can continue their work. Every box sold is a small step in the right direction.

skin care that supports education for girls

I like adding skin care products to the gift lists I write - and it may seem like a weird gift but the people I gift moisturizer or eye cream always seem to love it. For friends who have a big heart (or if you just want to treat yourself to something really great) consider Tatcha. Tatcha's products are made with natural ingredients that have proven clinical results. The company strives to be as sustainable as possible, by being mindful of how ingredients are sourced, the waste they create, and their impact on the environment. Tatcha gives back through organizations that support education and literacy for girls. Girls who have access to education are less likely to be married as children and will have better opportunities to support themselves and their families.

jewlery that supports women

Kendra Scott makes fantastic jewelry, and their pendants are a favorite with people who want a simple but elegant piece that can be worn daily. Kendra Scott supports women and children through the Kendra Scott Foundation, which gives back by supporting women entrepreneurs and breast cancer research, among other initiatives. As of 2023, the Kendra Scott Foundation has funded over 40,000 hours of breast cancer research and awarded over $115,000 in scholarships to women-led startups.

towel that supports women

Thistle Farms supports multiple programs, including a program that provides shelter and care for women escaping domestic violence, and another that supports fair trade, primarily for women producers. Fair trade initiatives seek to compensate producers of goods in developing countries with a living wage, so they can support themselves, their families, and their economy. These tea towels from Sustainable Threads might be pricier than the ones you get at your nearby Target, but they help support people who are physically disabled and survivors of domestic violence.

dress that supports moms in the workforce

Duster is a women-owned clothing company that makes cute, casual dresses inspired by utilitarian Filipino dresses for real-life wear. These dresses are meant to look chic while allowing you to do all the day-to-day things that life requires. Duster supports Moms First, which supports mothers in the workplace by fighting for equality and opportunity.
