Today is #GivingTuesday, which closes out the cyber shopping flurry and reminds us what the holidays are truly about: Giving. It's also a reminder to give what you can to nonprofits and charities before the end of the year — many organizations count on end-of-year donations to support their valuable programming for the following year.

In addition to donations, you can shop for a cause and buy gifts that give back. We’ve rounded up the best gifts from companies that donate proceeds to those in need, from child hunger to wildlife conservation. Plus, we’ll show you a way to give back to your favorite charities with every purchase on Amazon! Read on for our top Giving Tuesday ideas.


For Giving Tuesday (Dec. 3), Food52 is donating 5% of their total sales to No Kid Hungry, an organization fighting childhood hunger in the U.S. There are so many amazing gifts for the cook in your life, but we’ve got our eye on these gorgeous mediterranean-style vinyl mats. They’re so chic. We’d use them not just in the kitchen, but a mudroom or laundry room. And even better: They’re 20% off today!

$78.40-$144.00 (Originally $98.00-$180.00)

For 24 hours on Giving Tuesday, pup brand BarkBox is donating one box for each dog adopted from Fear Free-certified rescues and shelters. And they’ve extended their Black Friday offer for just $5 on your first box! But that’s not all. Over on Amazon, BarkBox has an awesome promotion on their pet beds. Buy a dog bed and get free bed sheets plus BarkBox will donate 5% of profits to Fear Free-certified rescues and shelters.


Even if you haven’t heard of (RED), you’ve probably seen the logo or bright red products. The organization partners with popular brands to create homewares, accessories and more that “fund the fight to end AIDS.” And now you can shop tons of these products on Amazon. Take a look at our top picks for holiday gifts.

Alex and Ani

Jewelry company Alex and Ani is known for its popular charm bangles, and the company’s Charity by Design line features special bangles created for specific charities or nonprofits with proceeds benefiting those organizations. For the holiday season, we’re in love with this silver bangle with retro-style ornament baubles. The bangle was designed for Baby2Baby, an organization providing diapers, clothing and necessities to children living in poverty, and from now until January 2020, Alex and Ani will donate 20% of the purchase price to the organization.

Williams Sonoma

Looking for stocking stuffers? Williams Sonoma has a line of spatulas called “Tools for a Change,” with 30% of proceeds going to organizations in need such as St. Jude, the Human Rights Campaign, No Kid Hungry and more. What’s even cooler about this line is that each spatula is designed by a celebrity, from Ina Garten to Al Roker.


Even luxury gifts can give back. Parachute's bedding features premium Eqyptian cotton and is spun in one of Tuscany's most renowned mills. That's fancy. Better yet? For every Venice Bedding Set sold, Parachute donates one life-saving malaria net to Nothing But Nets.


At HGTV, we work a bit with Amazon, including curating products we love and sharing them with you. And Amazon offers a way for your purchases to give back through the AmazonSmile Foundation and the site It's a parallel website to regular with the same products, but if you purchase while on, the Foundation donates 0.5 percent of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. No Kid Hungry by Share Our Strength is an option on Amazon Smile, as are many top-rated organizations like World Wildlife Fund (also involved in Project CAT), American Cancer Society and many, many more. Your overall impact through Smile will be relatively small, so it's not a replacement for direct giving, but every little bit helps, and if you're going to make the purchases anyway, why not make them make a difference?
