Giving Tuesday: Promotional Gifts That Give Back

As part of a tradition at Suttle-Straus, our annual holiday card includes the option for our customers to choose one of three local charities for us to donate to on their behalf.

During this season of giving, if you are also looking for a way to give thanks to your customers or employees, while also giving donations to a charity in need, take a look at some promotional gifts that give back:

Help Wounded Veterans


With every customizable promotional product from Basecamp, a donation is made to the Wounded Warrior Project to support and empower wounded veterans. On top of that, in 2021, Basecamp announced they will donate $100,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

They offer a portable, lightweight, comfortable, 500-lb weight capacity travel hammock that includes hanging rope and carabiner attachments for easy set up, as well as a packable pouch.

Their Globetrotter laptop backpack features two large zip compartments. The back compartment has padded laptop/tablet sleeve with notch to feed through a hydration tube, and the front section features internal organization pockets.

SHare Hope and Soap


Branded Soapbox personal care gift sets are unique corporate gifts. With every custom Soapbox order, a bar of soap is donated to someone in need across the globe, and can be tracked with a unique Hope Code, supporting the Soapbox mission of "Soap = Hope." Thoughtfully crafted, all products are vegan, paraben free, cruelty free, EDTA free, silicone free and artificial colorant free!

Protect Forests


Modern Sprout is on a mission to help reforest the future. So for every tree kit purchased, a percentage of proceeds goes to American Forests and the Pollinator Partnership for reforestation and ecosystem protection. They also partner with the Heartland Alliance to provide employment for Chicago's most vulnerable residents.

Modern Sprout tree kits feature carefully selected seed types that will thrive in most parts of the country. The container is made in the USA out of up-cycled cow manure, which is 100% biodegradable and helps heal nutrient-depleted soil.

The Peerless Terra auto-open folding umbrella, is made with RPET fabric constructed from recycled plastic bottles. The handle is also made of recycled plastics. A matching sleeve helps protect the umbrella when not in use and complements the piece. With the purchase of each RPET product sold, Peerless donates 1% of the net proceeds to the Rainforest Action Network.

Give the Gift of Water


Inspired by the belief that pure water is essential to pure living and the mission to reduce reliance on single-use plastic, Welly contributes 1% of sales to charitable efforts that bring wells and other sustainable clean-water solutions to communities worldwide.

Welly's drinkware features durable, double-wall stainless steel vacuum construction with copper insulation, which allows your beverage to stay cold for 24 hours and hot for at least eight hours. The construction also prevents condensation on the outside of the tumbler.

If there is a certain cause that is close to your heart, let me know and I can help find the perfect gift that includes a contribution to charity for a win-win promotion!
