9 Gift Ideas for The Activist

Ethical Gift Guide for Activists | Selflessly Styled

For the activist that you know and love, here are nine thoughtful gift ideas full of practicality and purpose to brighten her holiday!

1) Arise Box

Give her a curated box of do-good items for the holidays, or make it a gift that keeps on giving by buying her a subscription! Every purchase from Arise helps them provide necessities to safe homes for survivors of human trafficking in addition to supporting the ethical brands who they feature in their boxes.


2) Passion Planner

This is my personal favorite planner and it’s ideal for the individual with big ideas who needs to stay organized. For every planner purchased, they donate one to someone in need who is working towards a brighter future.


3) Women are Sacred Tee

This woman-run small business produces the beautiful “Women Are Sacred Tee” and ensures that every step of production is ethical and sustainable - right down to the packaging! They also donate a portion of each sale to a nonprofit providing counseling and healing to survivors of sexual violence.


4) Yuhme Water Bottle

These cool reusable water bottles are made from sugarcane, are CO2 negative, and totally toxin free. Each bottle provides 6 months of clean water to one person in the Central African Republic.



Sometimes being a conscious consumer/activist can be downright depressing, that’s why I love what Goodnewspaper offers! A quarterly beautifully designed newspaper that shares stories of good things happening in the world is so refreshing to read.


6) Starfish Project Earrings

These beautiful earrings are a fashion statement with a beautiful mission. Starfish Project restores hope to exploited women in Asia by providing life-changing opportunities through holistic care and social enterprise.


7) 100% Human Sweatshirt

This cotton sweatshirt serves as a reminder that we are all the same. We are all human. Ethically made in Vietnam, $5 of this purchase is donated towards the ACLU.


8) Headspace Subscription

Someone gifted a Headspace subscription to me recently, and it was one of the most thoughtful gifts. In a world of chaos and hustling to make a difference, having this built-for-beginners meditation app is so wonderful.


9) Claws Out Nail Polish

This vegan, toxin-free company creates really rad nail polish (I wear it often!) and gives back to nonprofits working tirelessly towards today’s most pressing issues.
