The holidays are here, and many of us haven’t started buying gifts for our loved ones yet. Nobody wants to buy an eleventh-hour cliché gift, but don’t fret, we’ve got you covered! We’ve found 2 companies that not only have awesome and unique gifts, but when you purchase from them, they give back in a generous way. Continue reading to find the best gifts that give and give back!
We all have that family member with a handbag obsession. Why not support their habit with a beautiful handbag that provides careers to military spouses who move frequently!
It all began in the small town of Dahlonega, Georgia, with two military wives in a small attic, one sewing machine, a little bit of canvas, and one big idea. From the handstitched liner to hand cut leather, The R. Riveter movement captures the humble and brave spirit of Rosie the Riveter. These women proudly stand by their American handmade products while providing a mobile income opportunity for military spouses who are constantly on the move. And it gets even better! R. Riveter has partnered up with over 10 likeminded non-profit, veteran owned & military spouse organizations.
The company provides more than handbags too; there are gifts for the whole family! They have shaving accessories, passport covers, old bullets repurposed as bottle openers, and the list goes on. You have to check out this company: http://www.rriveter.com/
Who doesn’t love a new pair of shoes? Especially shoes that help generate income for high potential, talented young women in Uganda to pursue their studies at a university!
Sseko Designs is a fashion brand based in East Africa that provides an opportunity for women to pursue their dreams of a bigger and brighter life.

With their philosophy that good business can be an incredibly powerful force for positive social change, how can you not support the cause!
Not only is this brand amazing because it helps women achieve their dreams of going to college, but the products are sensational. With interchangeable ribbons and a variety of accents and accessories to choose from, you actually give 20+ different pairs of shoes when you give someone one gift.
