Your kids. Your mom. Your significant other. Your dog. Your friend’s dog.

Most of us have a lot of people we shop for around the holidays. And, figuring out meaningful gifts for everyone can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be. We’ve put together a list of gifts that are thoughtful and give back. They’ll help you find that perfect something for the people on your list – and you’ll feel good knowing you’re making a difference. 

For the consummate party host

A great party starts with great food and drinks, but every host knows presentation is everything. For every purchase of Crate & Barrel’s Marin Small White Serving Bowl, Marin Small White Oval Platter, Peak Pitcher and Burke Salad Server Set, they’ll donate $5 to Feeding America.

For the baker in your life

Or, for that person you’re hoping will learn how to bake so you can snag some tasty treats! Pampered Chef’s Bake to Give collection will provide at least 10 meals* to Feeding America for every Boat Press Set, Cookie House Molds, Donut Pan and Mini Load Pan sold.

For that person who knows the best vitamin to keep their skin healthy

100 percent of the proceeds from the Kiehl’s holiday collection, which showcases a collaboration with graphic artist Janine Rewell, will be donated to Feeding America to help provide 1,000,000 meals* to families in need this holiday season.

For the Scooby Doo fan whose go-to phrase is, ‘Zoinks, Scoob!’

Or “jinkies!” or “jeepers!” or, “RUH-ROH!” They’ll want to be on the case to find the Feeding America® Scooby-Doo Funko Pop! For every purchase, BoxLunch will help provide 10 meals to Feeding America.

For the person who has very specific tastes

Shopping for someone who wants that third-edition-limited-collectors-deluxe-item and you just can’t quite remember what it is or if you’re getting the right one? Give them exactly what they want while making a difference for people facing hunger. Set Feeding America as your AmazonSmile charitable organization. When you shop at smile.amazon.com you get all the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon and the AmazonSmile Foundation donates each time you make a purchase on eligible products.

*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
