Christmas is all about generosity! I love that in this season we take time to sacrifice our time and money for the sole purpose of blessing those close to us in our lives. Why not go beyond just blessing your loved ones and use your buying power to make an impact in the world by buying from Christian-owned businesses that use their resources to invest in showing God’s love to others.
The best part of shopping with intention is it gives you the chance to tell a story when you give your gifts. You get to tell of how the jewelry you purchased from Noonday Collection changed the life of a woman from Thailand or how the shirt you purchased from Goods & Better helped provide a comfort item for a child in foster care. It adds so much more meaning to your giving when the impact is multiplied through generous business practices.
Here are a few Christian-owned businesses that you can feel good about purchasing from this holiday season:
1. Noonday Collection
I absolutely love the mission of this amazing company! It empowers women from all over the world to be able to create and make a fair wage for their labor. Their products are quality made (I have several of their pieces) and are absolutely beautiful. Shopping from Noonday Collection is a sure way to snag a one-of-a-kind gift while making a local and global impact with your purchase.
2. Goods & Better
Goods & Better provides items for kids in Foster Care with every purchase made from them! When you check out you get to “choose your impact” which allows you to select if you would like to provide comfort, clothing, hygiene, or baby items for a child. I love that you get to select exactly how your purchase will make a difference in the life of a child. Their store is filled with inspirational clothing, home goods, jewelry, and more!
3. Be the Bridge Shop
Give the gift of advocacy this year! Be the Bridge, a Christian organization that works to facilitate racial reconciliation, has a shop filled with items that are designed to inspire. They offer accessories and apparel that are designed to promote connection, healing, and truth.

Doubleside Toffee Co. sells delicious treats that are the perfect gift for the hard to buy for people on your list. Everything they sell is handcrafted, gourmet, and they offer gluten-free treats too! They aim to do good through donations to local, faith-based non-profits. Their goal is to make a difference in others’ lives and the community. They support the youth ministry Young Life, and For Her, an organization supporting sexually exploited women in San Antonio, TX.
