‘Tis the season of giving and giving back.

It’s never too early to start thinking about the special gifts you want to get for the special people in your life. And I’ve come across the perfect one. When I heard about Love Your Melon, their mission to help fight against pediatric cancer, and tried on one of their cozy beanies, I immediately declared it the gift I will get everyone on my list.

Giving a gift feels so good. Especially when you get it just right. But what’s better than making someone’s day this holiday season with a thoughtful gift? Knowing you’re making someone else’s that you might not have ever met before, or at least having a positive impact (at least indirectly) in child’s life. That’s why I’m getting everyone on my list anything from Love Your Melon because they help us do just that.

This apparel brand gives 50 percent of profit from the sale of all their products to their nonprofit partners to fight against pediatric cancer. These nonprofit organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, or the Make-A-Wish foundation lead the fight against pediatric cancer. As of now, LYM have given 123,706 beanies to kids battling cancer in America and over $2.8 million to nonprofit partners.

Love Your Melon’s beanies, made with 100 percent cotton yarn, are one of the softest knit hats I’ve ever worn (and in New York City winters, that’s a whole lot). LYM goes beyond beanies with infinity scarves, headbands, caps, tees, and so much more. All of their products are made in the U.S. and are stylish, incredibly well-made, and comfy. There’s even a kids shop! I can almost guarantee you can find something here for everyone on your list and you’re improving the lives of children battling cancer. It doesn’t get any better than that.
