Finding the perfect gift for your loved ones is hard. So is protecting nature. 

Luckily, you can do both at the same time. 

Conservation International’s 2019 gift guide offers a range of unique items that you can feel good about giving — meaningful ideas that give back to nature. Here are some of the top picks from our newest partners.

 1. Animal socks from the Dodo and Sock Club 


The Dodo Media Company and Sock Club have teamed up to create a pair of socks that you can actually get excited about receiving during the holidays. For every pair sold, 10 percent of your purchase will go to Conservation International and other partners to help protect the endangered species featured in each sock’s design.

Made from 30 percent recycled content, the HP Tango Terra is a net-carbon-neutral printer that allows you to print photos or documents directly from your phone. In partnership with Conservation International, each HP Tango Terra printer sold helps support rainforest conservation in the Peruvian Amazon.


Costa Brazil, a sustainable beauty brand, is contributing part of its proceeds to Conservation International to protect the Amazonian rainforests that inspires its skincare line. Each product is made only from vegan, cruelty-free ingredients found deep in the tropical forests of Brazil. 


In partnership with Conservation International, the sock company Conscious Step has created a new sock line that puts purpose behind each pair. One pair will support rangers working to combat wildlife trafficking, while the other will protect 20 trees from tropical rainforests for every purchase through Conservation International's Protect an Acre initiative. 

5. Hard Tea from Wild Leaf Tea

Wild Leaf's hard tea is brewed with hand-picked leaves that are sustainably sourced from South American rainforests. For every case sold, Conservation International will receive a portion of the proceeds, which will contribute to protecting up to 10,000 acres of rainforest. 


LXMI 33 face serum is made from 33 natural ingredients including tukha — a rare kind of Brazil nut oil sourced directly from the Alalapadu community in the Amazon. Proceeds from this product will not only improve the livelihoods of the people in this community, they will help protect the rainforests of Suriname.
