This holiday season, give beautiful handmade accessories that give back, only with a cool techy twist.

Me to We Jewelry and Accessories that Give Back | Cool Mom Picks

In the midst of the blaring holiday sales madness, we love to find gift giving and getting options that truly help others in need. And if you’d like to educate your kids about the importance of giving at this “I want” time of year, the handmade accessoris and gifts from Me to We is an option to consider.

While we’ve featured many organizations we adore that empower people with jobs and resources to create goods for the global marketplace, like Given Gooods Company,  31 Bits, and most recently TOMS marketplace, this group does something different to enhance the giving experience: You have the ability to track your impact and see just how your purchases and actions make a positive impact on others.

Each piece comes with a special code allowing you to see where and how your money went overseas as a gift — a tree, a meal, or a pencil for a student.

We think the handmade jewelry and accessories selections here are especially spot-on for young women, with pieces priced as low as $4.99 up to some more splurgey pashminas. There’s a tremendous and colorful selection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, scarves, gloves, and more. Personally? I am completely obsessed with the on-trend layering of their bracelets and necklaces.  There are also excellent stocking stuffers like “Be the Change” greeting cards and cufflinks f0r the guys.

 Great wrapping too!

I really love the idea of opening the eyes of a child–or even an adult–by handing them a gift with a special story attached to it. And when their friends ask where they got that cool bracelet, the awesome tale they get to tell means even more people learn about this great organization. Very good stuff, indeed. -Stephanie M.

    i love the idea behind the purchases of the jewelries. It would be nice to be able to see where and how your money went overseas as a gift, plus the jewelries are beautiful. I love the personalized nameplate rings. i would want to have one and give one to a special friend as well.
