A Gift Guide that GIVES Back! Shop Directly Here!

Black Friday is ALMOST here!


Which means my first Holiday Gift Guide is here! I wanted to make a gift guide dedicated solely to gifts that in return of a purchase, give back in some capacity. I am sharing a round-up of two brands that have a special cause behind it that I think would make great Christmas gifts this year. Here is a list of a few gifts that give back, while you get!

  1. CuddleMutt 

CuddleMutt is a collection of high-end dog essentials. The BEST part about this brand is that for every item sold, a blanket is donated to a dog in need at a partnering rescue or shelter. CuddleMutt is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The founder is a family-friend of mine, and she is an active dog foster mom and rescue advocate. She and her team are passionate about providing consumers with high-quality products for your pup! Their collars are so beautiful, come in a variety of popping colors, and are made of vegan leather, which means no animals were harmed or used in animal testing during the creating of product!

The CuddleMutt blanket featured in the photo is donated to a dog in need, but is also available for purchase and is made of plaid fleece on one side and a synthetic lambs wool on the bright blue side. The bright blue color was chosen to add a little color to your pup’s life as it is one of the only colors they can see! I loved that thoughtful touch to the design of these blankets donated to pups all over. This is such a sweet gift idea for your furry-friend this year in their stocking or under the tree. With getting one of these amazing dog products, you are giving warmth, comfort, and a safe place for a dog who is waiting to go to a loving home. That makes me so happy just thinking about giving back to such a sweet animal this year!

2. Diffeyewear

Diff is a sunglass company I have been a fan of for a while now, and I love the stylish lenses they create that don’t cost an arm and a leg to purchase either. This company gives back as you get by donating a pair of reading glasses to a child in need with EVERY purchase. How sweet is that? For Black Friday you can purchase 1 pair for 30% off, 2 pairs for 40% off, or 3 pairs for 50%(!!!) your ENTIRE purchase. What a great time to purchase these sunnies and give back at the same time if you’ve been eyeing them for a while! Below are several styles I have and love and a few I don’t have, but I’m also eyeing this Holiday season! 🙂 If you miss the Black Friday sale or want to shop EARLY you can receive 25% off your entire purchase using code COURTNEY25 at checkout!
