  1. Glisten + Glow Skin Illuminator (Lilah B): This multipurpose, illuminating highlighter can be worn as an all-over base or alone.

  2. Glass Water Bottle (SOMA): This shatter-resistant glass water bottle comes with a chic, protective silicone sleeve and a renewable bamboo cap. Best of all, every time you buy a SOMA product, they donate to sustainable, community-owned water projects in developing countries. (Shop it here)
  3. Canvas tote (Nisolo): This everyday tote is perfect for schlepping around your laptop, night out essentials, or groceries in style. Every Nisolo purchase provides a living wage to producers in the factory we own in Peru, enables us to pursue living wages within the rest of our supply chain, and combats climate change by protecting trees from deforestation in the Amazon Basin.

  4. The Cora Cup (Cora): The Cora Cup was designed by women in the know to be the most comfortable and easy-to-use cup, possibly ever. The Cora Cup reduces waste created by traditional period products, and your purchase also provides pads and health education to girls in need. (Shop it here)
  5. A gift card to an ethical fashion brand (ADAY): The Advocate has probably long since moved past fast fashion in an effort to protect the environment and make sure workers are paid fair wages. ADAY is on a mission to create seasonless, versatile clothing that makes it easier to buy fewer things. (Shop it here)
  6. Give a Damn tee (MATE): A t-shirt that shows the world who she is, made without pesticides, microplastics, formaldehyde, carcinogens, and other gross, toxic ingredients. MATE strictly sources GOTS Certified Organic Cotton and uses a localized supply chain to reduce the brand’s carbon footprint. (Shop it here)
  7. On Purpose crossbody (Kate Spade): This fun, flowery bag also gives back to women on a global scale. Through their On Purpose collection, Kate Spade builds suppliers that help transform communities by employing and empowering women. (Shop it here)
