I can't believe it's almost time for holiday season!  To get into the holiday spirit, I wanted to share some gift ideas over the next few weeks!  One thing that really gets my attention is when companies give back.  Today's gift guide highlights some of those companies that do support causes (and of course they are just really cute items that needed to be shared!)

1. Bene Scarves
Scarves are a great accessory to give as a gift; and Bene offers a variety of beautiful prints.  Proceeds from each purchase of a scarf go to helping girls in Ghana complete their education!  Another heartwarming detail is that each print is named after one of the girls who benefits from the donations!

2. Kendra Scott
I've noticed that Kendra Scott is one of those trendy brands that everyone seems to love, but they offer much more than pretty baubles.  Currently there is a selection of jewels available that benefits KIDS/Fashion Delivers.

3. Satya Jewelry
Again, you can't go wrong with giving jewelry as a gift, and this unique pendant is beautiful and supports a great cause.  Almost half the price of this particular necklace goes to helping provide clean drinking water to families in India.

4. Punjammies
I recently came across Punjammies and was drawn to their pretty prints and and comfy looking loungewear!  But each purchase also helps provide jobs for women in India.  Bonus, there is a Punjammie item for everyone in your family!

5. Toms
Most of us are familiar with Toms and their dedication to helping the community.  Every purchase goes to benefit a great cause, and a purchase of a Tom's bag goes to helping with a safe birth for a woman and baby in need!  

6. Out of Print
As a book lover, I can't get enough of this site.  If you have any literary lovers in your life, Out of Print offers tees and other items featuring quotes from popular novels.  With each purchase, a book is donated to a community in need.  Definitely a unique gift that also supports the community!

This is just a small selection of brands that support a great cause.  Since I'm always looking for gift ideas, I would love to hear about other companies that give back.
