If this year has taught us anything, it’s the importance of looking out for one another. So, in the true spirit of the giving season, here are our top gifts that do good and give back.
The Karma Collective
The Karma Collective don’t just offer a gorgeous selection of candles, eco-conscious home goods, sweet treats and art – they also donate 10% of all sales (not just their profits) to charities that improve the lives of animals. That means you can shop their range knowing that part of your purchase will be directly helping animals in need.
Sponsor an animal
Speaking of animals, sponsoring a rescue is one of the best gifts you can give this year. Having seen the devastation that the Black Summer bushfires created for our native wildlife, and knowing that we are heading into yet another risky bushfire season, there’s no time like the present to sponsor an animal in danger or recovery in a friend or family members’ name.
Spend With Us and Buy from the Bush
The Black Summer bushfires and years of severe drought have also left many Australians and their families in crisis, but thanks to organisations like Buy from the Bush and Spend With Us, you can directly support them – and give beautiful gifts to your loved ones – this Christmas. Both platforms offer a central marketplace for rural and regional businesses, allowing the millions of Aussies who would love to support small businesses this festive season to shop online in one convenient location.

It’s easy to feel helpless when we hear of the impossible conditions people all over the world are living in, but thanks to organizations like Care Gifts, you can give exactly what’s needed. Choose what you will give to a person in need (there are options like chickens, bicycles and midwifery services) and whether you will give your loved one a physical or electronic card, then watch their face light up when they discover that you’ve given the ultimate gift in their name – it’s that simple!
Monopoly Community Relief edition
Every family’s go-to game, Monopoly, has just launched the limited edition ‘Australian Community Relief’ board to honour regional Aussie communities that have been impacted by the bushfires, floods and COVID-19. Up to 22 communities from across regional Australia will be featured on the board in place of traditional squares such as Mayfair and Park Lane, and every sale of the Australian Community Relief Monopoly Edition will mean much needed funds go directly to the Australian Red Cross.
