Shop Small: Gifts That Give Back | AD Afflinks

Etsy is one of the best places to find meaningful, personal presents that are truly made with love. When you support a small business, you're already making a big difference to the person behind it, but with lots of Etsy items giving a percentage of profits to charity, your money can go even further and help great causes.

Gifts That Help People
£20 Textile Candy
The colourful glass charms on these necklaces are made in Ghana from recycled glass. All the Ghanain glass from textile Candy is ethically sourced on trips to Africa, and the necklaces come in little patterned pouches handmade by a seamstress there. 

£12.50+ LizzieMartell
Mental illnesses almost always take away the sufferer's confidence and replace it with hundreds of negative thoughts about themselves. This print is a lovely way to remind a friend of their good qualities, and a percentage from the sale goes to MIND charity, so more people are supported in their fight.

£3.60 StrangelyMagical 
All money from this little cutie goes to the Scottish Refugee Council! Every time you reach for your keys or go through your front door, you'll be reminded that you've helped someone to find a home here. Lovely stuff.

£5 BotanicalUK
This chic soap is named after Doreen Robinson, who sadly passed away from cancer in 2018. In her honour, £2 from this bar goes to Marie Curie. The bar is scented with uplifting, citrussy bergamot, and I think it looks just as good as a LUSH one!

£7 SarahFrancesArt
A really touching, beautiful gift for anyone whose life has been affected by Alzheimer's or dementia, this pin donates £2 to the Alzheimer's Society to help them find a cure for this evil disease. I think it would be lovely to give to someone alongside a framed photo of their loved one.

£9 Kind Candles 
'Kind Candles' was the perfect name for this company. Recyclable metal tins, sustainable, vegan rapeseed wax, and best of all, a percentage from the sale of each candle benefits a charity. The Winter Spice candle supports Fresh Start, an Edinburgh charity which helps people who have been homeless to transition well into their new homes.

Gifts That Help Animals
Dachshund Screenprint
£20+ Hatchling Makes 
Whether your recipient owns a sausage dog or simply adores them, this hand printed poster is a great way to make them smile this Christmas. 10% of all sales are donated to wildlife conservation charities. 

£10.99 The PunkyBunny
10% of sales from ThePunkyBunny go to a local animal charity, which perfectly suits this vegan-themed business. This mug is a great present for a plant based friend or anyone with a dairy allergy, as it quickly answers what milks they can have in their drinks and makes ordering much easier.

Badger and Bee Wooden Pins
£4.50 Belle and Betty Design
Pins are always popular, and these wooden ones, with their sweet character designs, are a gorgeous stocking filler for any nature lover. £2 from the badger design goes to Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, and £2 from the bee is given to Friends Of The Earth.

Gifts That Help The Planet
£22.59 LuceAndLuckDesign
It's official, the plant trend is (thankfully) going nowhere, and you can show your love in two ways with these beautiful, handmade earrings. 100% of the profits from them go to the Amazon Conservation Team, so while you show off these green and gold gems on your Instagram grid, you're funding vital work to save the rainforest. 

£12.50 IsabellaMitchellArt
The bright colours in this relaxed scene really drew me in, and would work for pretty much any space or home. All of Isabella's prints give a donation to a fitting charity, and for this one she has chosen the Canal and River Trust. 

£20 ZeeMakes
Featuring postcards, a handmade drawstring bag, and a Liberty print bracelet with silver Manta ray charm, this box is ideal for any wannabe merpeople who love anything aquatic. £3.33 goes to the Manta Trust to look after the oceans.
