This holiday season, give back when you give a present to someone you love—or even when treating yourself. Whether you’re looking for the perfect present or a simple stocking stuffer, these gifts are a unique way to support the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Looking for a campy gift for the theater lover in your life? Then look no further than this beautiful Angela Lansbury ornament by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The Broadway Legends series of handmade glass ornaments features beloved performers including Carol Burnett and Barbra Streisand in their signature roles. Lansbury, the first individual honored in the series, is depicted in her iconic role as Aunt Mame Dennis in the hit musical Mame. This year’s version of the popular ornament features a new design.
The holiday season brings with it cold winter weather, which means warming up with a nice cup of tea. This light and fruity Harvey & Sons Love Life green tea blend will hit the spot every time. The refreshing combination of Japanese bancha green tea, strawberry, coconut, rich vanilla and puffed rice, which takes its name from GMHC’s slogan, makes the perfect gift for those looking for a gentler pick-me-up than the average cup of coffee. What’s more, 50% of sales from this tea will benefit GMHC’s work to end AIDS.

Celeb Video Shout-Outs, $1 to 1,100
This holiday season, surprise—maybe even shock—someone you love with a personalized video message from one of their favorite stars. The video-sharing platform Cameo has teamed up with 436 celebs to record special shout-outs to fans and donate part of the proceeds to (RED). Choose from original Queer Eye cast member Carson Kressley ($65), celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Pose’s Billy Porter ($100), rapper Trina ($150) or Disney’s Raven-Symoné ($300), among many others. Not only is this the ultimate gift, but it also helps raise HIV/AIDS funds. It doesn’t get much better than that.
