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 no secret that singer Selena Gomez is a big believer in philanthropy. Recently, this pop princess has been working on the Red Kettle Campaign with the Salvation Army and promoting various charities on her Twitter. So it’s no surprise that when it comes to accessorizing, she picks a necklace that helps those in need. Selena was seen on the KISS FM Jingle Ball concert red carpet wearing a “Serenity” necklace from The Giving Keys.

The Giving Keys is a company started by actress and singer Caitlin Crosby, which employs people trying to transition out of homelessness. TGK prints inspirational words on refurbished keys and encourages customers to wear their key, embrace the message and then pass it on to someone who needs it. Don’t feel like wearing a key around your neck? The jewelry line also creates pay-it-forward bracelets, rings and iPhone cases. These pieces will add a perfect touch of vintage to any outfit — and with celeb fans including Ashley Tisdale, Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron — you know it’ll be a hit no matter to whom you give one.

Find out more about The Giving Keys’ mission (and pick up one for yourself or a friend) here.

What message will you be wearing? Tell us in the comments.
