Shop for the Girls: A Gift Guide for Girls of All Ages

posted in: Shopping Tips

Happy International Day of the Girl!

The United Nations formally adopted this day a decade ago, and since then, it’s been a day to empower girls and honor girls’ rights. We’re sharing some amazing products that give back to charities that support gifts (perfect timing for some early holiday shopping!).

Dove Charm Necklace ($45) Peggy Li Jewelry

The Goods:  This woman- and AAPI-owned jewelry brand created their Dove Charm Necklace which is a classic symbol of peace and hope, and this sweet necklace has been seen on The Vampire Diaries, Private Practice, Witches of East End, Riverdale, and New Girl.

The Give: The brand donates 25% of sales of the necklace to WriteGirl, which mentors teens in the Los Angeles area. With the pandemic, teen girls from all over the country can apply to participate in their virtual workshops. 


Quartz Sliders, Collars & Leashes ($33 & up) DIPHDA

The Goods:  DIPHDA is a brand that makes accessories for pets and their people. Their Rose Quartz Sliders (starting at $33) can be added to chains for people or to their LOVE collection of pink collars and leashes for your furry friends.

The Give: All of October, they will be donating 20% of their proceeds from their LOVE collection of collars and leashes, as well as from their Rose Quartz Sliders to Young Survival Coalition, which helps young people diagnosed with breast cancer. 


Crewneck Sweatshirt ($64) Girl Gang x Season of Sunday

The Goods: This cute crew is a Girl Gang x Season of Sunday collab. Girl Gang is a female empowerment-focused line of clothing and accessories with inspiring phrases. It aims to support local female-focused charities and collaborate with up-and-coming designers, like Season of Sunday, a brand that is focused on creating conversations about mental health.

The Give: The limited-edition “I AM MENTALLY STRONG” crewneck ($64) is available in sizes S-2XL with 20% of the proceeds from the sales of this collaboration will go to Project Healthy Minds, a non-profit startup focused on tackling the growing rowing mental health crisis. 


Bras and Camisoles ($20 & up) Bleuet

The Goods: Bleuet gives all girls comfort and confidence with bras, camisoles and other apparel ($20 and up). Designed for their growing bodies, Bleuet bras are ultra-soft, itch-free and lightweight.

The Give: For the International Day of the Girl, Bleuet is donating 15% of sales to Hailey’s Haven, a 501 3c non-profit founded by teen entrepreneur Hailey O’Donnell that provides necessities to foster tween and teens. Gently worn returns from Bleuet are also donated to foster girls via Hailey’s Haven. 


Journal ($32) Sapana

The Goods:  I discovered this woman-owned company on Instagram and I am in love with their new leather-covered journals ($32), which are handcrafted in traditional style in Jaipur, India.

The Give: 20% of profits go to support the endeavors of She Has Hope (a division of the 501 c3 Peace Gospel) in India, Nepal, Uganda, Myanmar, and the Philippines. She Has Hope works to rescue and rehabilitate girls, women, and even boys, victims of trafficking by providing access to trade schools and entrepreneurial development programs. 


Stainless Steel Dinnerware ($44 & up) Ahimsa

The Goods: This colorful stainless steel dinnerware collection ($44 and up) was developed by a board-certified pediatrician and mom of 3 after the American Academy of Pediatrics released a policy statement saying that plastic can be harmful to children and instead recommended stainless steel or glass dinnerware whenever possible.

The Give: Ahimsa loves supporting entrepreneurship and encouraging girls to choose careers in STEM, which is why they’re donating 30% of proceeds to Black Girls Code on October 11. Black Girls Code builds a pathway for young women of color to embrace the tech world by introducing them to computer skills, programming, and tech.
