It’s hard to believe the holidays are here! Somehow, every year I’m surprised that it’s, “that time of year again.” And it’s always the same formula: decorate, make list, buy gifts, plan parties, make another list, buy food, wrap presents, cook food, unwrap presents, clean giant mess, clean more, and more, collapse from exhaustion.
Well, my friends, I’d like to help you get all the gifts you need so you can sit back and relax through the whole month of December. Ok, who am I kidding about the relaxing part, but at least you’ll have more time for the other stuff you gotta do right?!
What if I told you that not only is this gift guide going to make your shopping simpler, but all of these gifts are worth twice as much without costing any extra? I’d say sign me up for that! Who’s with me?!

I’ve complied this Revive Jewelry Gifts that Give Back Guide so you can find the perfect gift that will not only put a smile on your face & the person you give it to, but will also give life saving resources in the form of disease research funding, clean drinking water, protecting animals, helping kids, fair wage employment, rehabilitating the homeless, or education.
Here are 8 gifts that give back so you can do twice the giving without spending twice as much!
Revive Jewelry- Building Blocks Necklace, $99
Dedicated to fighting for cures, Revive Jewelry is perfect for the socially conscious consumer in your life.

Whether you wear Revive to support a survivor or remember a lost loved one, you embody this struggle and honor their story. More than just jewelry, it’s also a badge of courage that proudly represents you as part of the fight against disease. Paired with healing stones, each style is intended to make you feel beautiful while proudly displaying your inner warrior.
