the best “gifts that give back” don’t just donate to a cause, they’re part of a holistic design to support sustainable economies. We love brands like Soko, The Little Market and others below that are doing just that. Pick from among their gorgeous jewelry, home goods and more to find gifts that will make an impact on the gift maker as well as the gift receiver.
