Spreading awareness of breast cancer can be as simple as giving a gift. Here are five gifts that do just that.
The gift that keeps on giving
Pink ribbon charms
Many of us out there have a Pandora or charm bracelet, so a great gift idea for any time of the year is another glass charm. This charm, though, gives back. You can choose from a package of breast cancer-themed charms to just an elegant pink glass charm. Whether you want to go the more traditional route with a pink ribbon or a more subtle route, the Belk company has you covered. Their website also has a list of other great items from participating retailers around the nation as a part of their breast cancer awareness campaign.
Have a cook in the family? Or maybe a smoothie junkie? This cute KitchenAid blender is an awesome gift. Its iconic color will brighten up any kitchen and add an element of fun to the daily routine. The KitchenAid Cook for the Cure program will donate a minimum of $450,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, so by purchasing this essential kitchen item for a friend, mother, sister or daughter, you could potentially save a life.
Komen Milano tote for the cure
Everyone needs a go-to tote to store all their endless supplies for work, school and life in general. Thankfully, Mobile Edge has you covered. This effortlessly chic Komen Milano tote is not only adorable but it helps spread awareness. Designed for women by women, this tote ensures your laptop’s safety as well as being functional and fashionable. Mobile Edge will donate 10 percent of the proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure as a part of their Caring Case Collection campaign.
Coffee & Tea
Coffee is an essential in most people’s lives. That’s why any gift, whether it’s the cute pink cup or blackcurrant jasmine tea, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Co. has you covered. The best part is that the money will not only go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in the United States but also to women all around the world affected by breast cancer. This gift is versatile and sure to make you and the recipient happy!
Men care, too! Let us not forget the leaps and bounds the National Football League has made in breast cancer awareness. Now they have teamed up with Nike to bring us these super-cute — and super-manly — sweatshirts and T-shirts. Every item is customized with team logos and a subtle pink ribbon. There are even women’s items for the ladies who love football, too. This gift is a fan favorite nationwide.
