Gifts That Give Back

Hi everyone, This is something that’s really near and dear to my heart. We’ve shared with your some of our baby essentials, but it was also really important to us as we shopped for our daughter Remi to find presents for her and our friends’ children that give back to women and children around the world. Today I’m going to share with you my top selections for Gifts That Give Back.



The Little Market is an online fair-trade shop where customers can purchase beautiful products handmade by artisans around the world. We have the cutest baskets in Remi’s room and around the house that we got from The Little Market. You can find more information on The Little Market here:


Pebble Child’s motto is “Making beautiful toys, creating dignified employment” and they’re right these toys are gorgeous! Remi adores their toys, which are hand-sewn by women in Bangladesh. You can find more information on Pebble Child here:


One of Remi’s favorite stuffed animals is the dog from Cuddle and Kind, where for each doll purchased, ten meals are given to feed children in need. You can find more information on Cuddle and Kind here:


Bears for Humanity donates a teddy that is hand stuffed and sewn by at-risk women in the USA to a child in need for each one purchased. I couldn’t resist getting Remi this sweet little monkey! She loves how soft he is. You can find more information on Bears for Humanity here:


TOMS is a popular One for One company that works with more than 100 partners to deliver TOMS shoes, sight, water, safe births and bullying prevention to people in need. Why not buy most of Remi’s shoes from TOMS and teach her that we’re already giving back with the actions that we’re making on a daily basis? You can find more information on TOMS here:


Krochet Kids International works with highly vulnerable women who live in poverty-stricken regions of the world to provide job opportunities at anti-poverty wages. The products from Krochet Kids Intl. even come signed by the person who made them! You can find out more information on Krochet Kids Intl. here:


Even though Remi isn’t in school yet we love our Statebag! Their Ryder Snack Pack, is perfect for us when we are on the go. For every Statebag purchased, State hand-delivers a backpack, packed with essential tools for success to a local child in need. You can find out more information on Statebags here:


One of our most cherished gifts we have ever received for Remi is simply a piece of paper from the International Rescue Committee, but what it represents is so important to us. This gift from our friends was a donation that will send a girl to school for an entire year. Other donation options include clothing and food. You can find out more information on the International Rescue Committee here:

Last but not least we have Zen Pig! Zen Pig partners with The Mocha Club so that for every book sold, enough proceeds are given to provide one person with clean drinking water for a whole year, and for every print sold clean water is provided to 20 – 30 people for one year.
