Article 22 is a company with an incredible story. I learned about them through a friend and can’t wait to shop their beautiful jewelry! The jewelry is made from re-purposed scarp war metals from exploded bombs and other weapons. Now how amazing is that?! So in love with this story-don’t you agree that this would make the perfect gift for your wife, mom, sister or bestie?

Do you want to save lives in Nepal this holiday season? Then buy someone a gift from Aveda. The wrapping paper on all the gift sets is handcrafted and has employed 5,500 people in Nepal in over 8 years. During 8 years, 2,400 families have been able to buy food, send their children to school and save for the future…..now doesn’t that just make you want to buy everyone an Aveda gift?! 🙂

Are you really surprised that this made my list?! So many of us have a girl crush on Jessica Alba. I mean who wouldn’t? She is an awesome mom, wife and CEO. Buy your sister, bestie (or yourself) a few of the Honest Beauty products because guess what? A portion of the proceeds of each purchase will help fund skills training and education for young women. Honest Beauty supports the organization, Girls Who Code which provides girls education in the fields of computer science and technology.
