Gift-giving can be so rewarding, but it can also be incredibly routine. Instead of that sweater you get your dad every year or that lemur-of-the-month calendar you always get your eccentric lemur-loving aunt, check out these cute gift ideas that’ll switch up your holiday gift routine while also giving back to our neighbors facing hunger. 

For anyone who loves Doc McStuffins…or hand washing 

Stuffed animals and playing doctor…a classic combination for the wild imaginations of so many little ones in our lives. To celebrate the launch of the Disney Junior Doc McStuffins Wash Your Hands Doll, Disney and Just Play will make a donation to Feeding America that will provide 2 million meals* to feed our neighbors facing hunger in communities across the country.  

For your friend who likes to deck the halls with pasta  

We all know someone who decorates for Christmas as soon as Halloween ends. For every purchase of the Papa Leo’s Pasta Ornament sets, Crate & Barrel will donate $10 to Feeding America. Crate and Barrel is also inviting customers to celebrate the holiday season by donating at the register and online from November 1-December 31.  

For the most discerning home-spa aficionados

If there’s ever been a reason to treat yourself, this year has been it. Kiehl’s is supporting families facing hunger with a holiday collection. This year, Kiehl’s will donate a minimum of $100,000 to Feeding America through the purchase of the Facial Favorites for All or Merry Masking Kits. 

For the family member who has you stumped 

Can’t figure out what to get for your friends or loved ones? Let them choose their own gift! Three percent of the amount loaded onto the Feeding America Giving Good Cards will be donated to Feeding America to help provide food for our neighbors facing hunger. 

For that TV shopper in your life 

Whether you want to deck the halls with a festive wreath or deck yourself out in a new t-shirt, throughout the holidays, QVC will make a donation to Feeding America for every unit sold in a special selection of 20 items. Items will be available on a QVC landing page throughout the season until December 24. 

For that person who has a closet just for shoes 

Many of us have given up shoes as part of our work from home wardrobe but if you’re looking for something more supportive for your feet than slippers, every purchase at a Crocs store or online at adds an option to donate to Feeding America. And, this holiday, Crocs will be releasing a limited-edition 3-pack of Jibbitz™ charms, with 100 percent of the profits going 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 you get all the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon and the AmazonSmile Foundation donate 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
