2020 alsf gift guide

By: Trish Adkins

’Tis the season for holiday shopping! We’ve got something for everyone on your list. When you shop with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) or one of our partners, your gifts help fund childhood cancer research and raise invaluable awareness of the need for cures!

From jewelry to gifts for party hosts to cozy socks, we’ve got something that will make everyone on your list happy. (And trust us, this stuff is so great, you’ll want to toss in a few gifts for yourself too!)  

1. Because Jewelry is Always a Good Idea
Gifting jewelry is a great way to create a lasting memory for the recipient. Whenever they slip on the bracelet or necklace you gifted, they will think of you and the good your gift made possible! The “One Cup, Lemonade” Unselfie Band is a great gift for the teens on your list. For each $10 bracelet purchased, Unselfie will donate $1 to ALSF.  Do you know someone who prefers a little more shine on their wrist? The Mantra Band ($35) available in yellow gold, rose gold and silver is perfect on its own and scores ALSF a $5 donation per bracelet sold. And for the color lovers in your life, grab a stack of Squeeze the Day bangles from Katie's Cottage Barn ($38, each) in either Yellow Agate or Blue Lapis Lazuli.

2. Surprise and Delight Your Friends with Edible Cheer
Drop off some edible cheer to your friends and family this holiday season! Drop off a bottle of One Hope Wine ($25) and the company will donate 10% of your purchase to ALSF. Pair it with Nonni’s Limone Biscotti (3 boxes for $18.50) for double the deliciousness and double the donation. Pair some Florida’s Natural (price varies by retailer) with a bottle of champagne for lemonade mimosas in the morning. Florida’s Natural will donate 100% of their profits to ALSF from each lemonade sold.

3. Send Some Holiday Cheer
Head over to charity partner, Minted and save 20-percent off with code FUNDRAISELEMONADE through 12/31/2020 and Minted will donate to ALSF. 

4. The Best Gifts for your Favorite Families 
Treat your favorite families on your list with treats from Alex’s Shop, the official shop of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The adorable Hero Puppy ($12) is perfect to cuddle up with while reading Alex and the Amazing Lemonade Stand ($15.95). Keep reading with the Suzie Sunshine book ($14.95 hardcover; $6.99 kindle) by Danelle Matlack, who donates a portion of her book sales to ALSF. If you are not cozy enough, snag some Little Sleepies pajamas (price varies). Little Sleepies donates a portion of all sales to ALSF!

5. Because it’s Cold Outside
Stuff everyone’s stockings and keep them warm with Circle Socks ($10), available in black with yellow polka dots ($2 a pair donated to ALSF!). Since you should never go out without a hat, stock up on the brand-new beanie hat from the ALSF Shop or grab a Love Your Melon ALSF beanie ($30) and Love Your Melon will donate $10 a hat to ALSF. 

6. For The Foodie
If you have a foodie on your list, don’t forget to grab them a copy of Alex’s Table ($29.95). Alex’s Table is filled with more than 55 recipes from world-renowned chefs and mixologists alongside favorites from hero families and celebrities. For snack lovers, treat them to a Zest Box subscription (starting at $49.99). In each Zest Box, your lucky recipient will receive a selection of healthy, non-gmo, organic snacks and meal options. (And Zest Box will donate 2% of profits to ALSF!)

7. Amazon For It All
While you take advantage of Amazon Prime’s two-day shipping, be sure to shop through AmazonSmile (now available on the mobile app too!) Select ALSF as your charity of choice and Amazon will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to ALSF. Want to give a gift that helps even more? Check out the ALSF Amazon wishlist to purchase items that help the organization administer more programs that help families and children!

8. Give the Gift of your Presence
