5 Holiday Gifts that Keep on Giving

5 Holiday Gifts that Keep on Giving

The holiday shopping season is in full swing. Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, discounts and buy one get one deals are available for many gifts on everyone’s wishlists. If you’re shopping for a Costavidan, you can earn a $5 Bonus Card when you gift a $25 Costa Card!

In a Costa Vida blog post earlier this month, we highlighted a few easy, budget-friendly ways to give back to your community this season. Today we’re sharing a way to support people in need all over the world while you complete your holiday shopping. These companies have followed in the footsteps of brands like Toms, partnering with charitable organizations across the globe to support causes like childhood nutrition in developing countries and environmental protection. Give these gifts to people on your list this year and donate to worthy causes for the most rewarding buy one get one deal of the season.

1. Humble Hilo  

Hand-woven with brightly colored thread, Humble Hilo bags, shoes, and clothing items are beautifully handcrafted by villagers in Guatemala. A portion of each product is used to support infant and child nutrition, education, and microfinance for women to empower the people of this developing nation.

2. Pura Vida Bracelets 

This company was born when two Southern Californian friends brought back handmade bracelets from their trip to Costa Rica. Today, Pura Vida has created countless jobs for artisans in Costa Rica and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charities to cure cancer, support the military, and protect the environment. 

3. Panda Sunglasses 

Handcrafted from sustainably sourced bamboo, these sunglasses are fashionable and environmentally friendly. Each pair purchased gives the gift of sight to someone in need through their partnership with Optometry Giving Sight.

4. One World Futbol 

This ultra-durable soccer ball is designed to endure years of play. Each ball purchased gives another ball to a child in need. As part of the One World Play Project, these soccer balls are given to children in developing countries to promote emotional well-being, creative play, and social development.

5. Krochet Kids International 

KKI provides employment, education, and empowerment to women in Uganda and Peru by teaching them to crochet, screen-print, and sew clothing. Each cozy piece of lounge and outerwear sold allows these women to better support their families and change their communities for the better.
