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.

It’s well-known that two of the best shortcuts to true beauty are hydration and helping others. Actress Kristen Bell was spotted this past weekend volunteering at a homeless shelter and hydrating with her trusty Bkr bottle, an eco-friendly glass-and-silicone bottle that helps the Obakki Foundation, which brings water and education to people in Africa.

Bkr is donating 25% of all the sales of its Kvetch Heartbkr bottle to the Obakki Foundation throughout the month of December. The Obakki Foundation uses fashion and creative arts to fund its efforts in Africa and has already drilled more than 100 Clean Water Wells in South Sudan. These sleek, stylish and light-weight bottles also do double do-gooder duty, by ensuring you’ll never buy another bottled water again. (Every editor at PEOPLE StyleWatch has one and swears by them!)

Find out more about the Obakki Foundation mission here and pick up your own Kvetch Heartbkr style here.

With a low cost and high impact, why wouldn’t you want to get your hands on one of these trendy bottles? Tell us which color you’re getting in the comments.
