If the slew of corny but bingeable holiday movies have taught us anything, it’s that it is always better to give than receive. Sure, we all want to receive something shiny and new (who doesn’t?); however, it’s also incredibly satisfying to see the look on a loved one’s face when they open a present they really adore.

Of course, the same sentiment applies giving to charities. There’s no better time than the holidays to donate to charities that resonate with you. Today, it’s easier than ever before to support the causes you love. While you can always donate directly to a charity, you can also buy some beautiful pieces, as a gift or for yourself, that give a portion of their proceeds to a cause.

Ready to get shopping? Here are 15 brands that are giving back this holiday season:

For every Venice bedding set purchased, Parachute Home will donate one malaria bed net through Nothing But Nets. These charitable sheets are available in linen, percale, sateen, and washed sateen.

Light up the night with the Starling Project’s delicious candle, which features notes of vanilla and sharp hemlock. The Starling Project’s mission is to bring solar-powered energy to communities in need, and is donating a portion of their proceeds to helping hospitals in Rwanda.

The ultra-chic homewares brand gives 10 percent of its profits to organizations supporting local artisans.

4. Alessi

Alessi is a proud partner of (RED), which gives all of its proceeds to the Global Fund to fight AIDs. We’re eyeing this adorable ice cream set!

These blankets don’t only look good; they do good. For every blanket purchased, Sackcloth & Ashes will donate one to your local homeless shelter.

9. Salon

This season, the Boston-based design haven teamed up with Park Social Soccer Co. to give back. Whenever someone purchases this super chic soccer ball, they’ll donate one to a disadvantaged kid. If you ask us, it’s perfect gift for both sports fans and design lovers.

The say that home is where the heart is, and while the Home T is known for its T-shirts, the company has plenty of art prints that make it easy to pay tribute to your roots. Best of all, the Home T donates 10 percent of its profits to multiple sclerosis research.

Lauren Conrad’s e-tailer is all about empowering women, so it should come as no surprise that proceeds from her gorgeous woven baskets go back to the artisans in Rwanda who made them.

Another way to give the gift of girl power is with a present from Raven & Lily. This company donates a portion of their proceeds to creating microloans for women in need.

The Company Store partners with a bevy of charities like Miracle Walk, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the Ronald McDonald House New York. All you need to do is buy one of the company’s cozy sheets or comforters and get some beauty rest.

Since its launch in 1946, Ten Thousand Villages has donated over $140 million dollars to artisans in developing countries. Ten Thousand Villages sells beautiful items from countries like India, Vietnam, and Bangladesh, so you can satisfy your (or a loved one’s) wanderlust without hopping on a plane.

Everyone knows that the Citizenry offers beautiful, artisan-made goods, but did you know the company gives back, too? The Citizenry pays it forward with its Entrepreneur Development Grant, which gives 10 percent of proceeds to artisan communities.
