You’ve been busily bookmarking our gift guide, but this December, we’re also going to draw your attention to great gifts that also give back — to the community, to children, to the world around us. Check them out, and share your favorite gifts that give in the comments.

Done with the bulk of your holiday shopping and only have stocking stuffers left to buy? First, we commend you (seriously, how did you do that?) and second, we found that last-minute gift you need that’ll fit in any stockings: Yes to Cucumbers Seed Fund Towelettes.

RELATED: The best gifts under $25 (P.S.: They look way more expensive!)

You’re probably familiar with the skincare brand, but you might not be up-to-date on their latest cause, so we’ll fill you in: 100% of proceeds from these travel-sized towelettes will be donated to the company’s Yes to Seed Fund, a charity with the mission to plant gardens around the world to promote nutrition and healthy living for children living in impoverished communities.

So yes, this gift is a no-brainer. And it’s probably the cheapest thing you’ll buy all holiday season at $2.99 for 10 towelettes. Plus, Ginnifer Goodwin, Tyra Banks and Sheryl Crow are just a few of the celebrity fans of the brand.

How are you giving back this holiday season? What’s your charity of choice? Let us know in the comments.
