Favorite Fall Finds that Make a Difference

 Gifts that Make a Difference // Fall Favorites

Ahh, fall. It’s finally here! I love everything about this season—the crisp air, the chunky sweaters, the pumpkin spice lattes. I’ve always associated fall with a new beginning or a time for re-invention or re-focusing on the things that matter. Part of that feeling always includes an urge to refresh my wardrobe with a few new pieces, change up my skin care routine, or spruce up my home décor in anticipation of the holidays. So I’ve gathered up my favorite fall finds that make a difference—from the perfect bag for weekends at the farmers market to our new pumpkin and chai candle.

For Her

Mamuye Tote

Our best-selling bag is even more irresistible in this soft gray hue that complements black and gray Chelsea boots that everyone’s wearing this season. This genuine leather bag is handmade in Ethiopia by women who receive fair wages and education.

Shegaw Scarf

Scarves are perfect for those tricky fall weather days that aren’t quite cool enough for a chunky sweater. This scarf is a classic and adds texture to a basic top. Better yet, each scarf is handmade by women in Ethiopia who receive fair wages and education.

Knit Lace Top

For a fun fall look, check out our best-selling top in Nutmeg. This warm, rose shade looks gorgeous on all skin tones, and the lace in the back adds an unexpected detail.

Mariana Bucket Tote

I’m obsessed with this bag. This bag is timeless, and it will be your go-to for many seasons to come. If you want an updated look to a carry-anything tote, you’ll love the functionality of the Mariana Bucket Tote. And each bag is made by women in Mexico who receive fair wages and job training.

Brooklyn Blend Necklace

If your wardrobe is full of neutrals, this is a perfect way to add a pop of color. Every necklace from 31 Bits is made with paper beads by women in Uganda who receive a sustainable income and education as part of their employment.

Annalise Scarf

This shade…this cable-knit texture…this is one of our favorite pieces this season. The Annalise loop scarf is the easiest way to transition to fall. Add this cowl neck scarf to a basic top for a stylish, warm update.



Coffee Tree Bracelet

Layering is still popular this season, and I love the simple, layered look of the Coffee Tree Bracelets from Kula Project. Each brass bangle provides a coffee tree for a woman in Rwanda, which provides a sustainable source of income for 30 years.

Poppy Market Tote

Fall was made for farmers’ markets, and the market tote is the perfect bag for those and all your fall adventures. Made of canvas, this bag is durable and adorable. And every bag provides a donation to provide education to kids in developing countries.

Hex Cuff

Rose gold is still in style, and we can’t get enough of it with black and gray knit tops. Add interest and a conversation starter to your look with the rose gold Hex Cuff, which provides 7 meals to a child in need.

For Skin

Coral Sugar Scrub

This gem is new to Society B, and it’s the perfect skincare product for drier weather. It combines the exfoliating powers of sugar with super moisturizers like coconut oil and shea butter. Every purchase provides one bar of soap and a month of clean water to a child in need.

For Him  

Hudson Hoodie

This classic shirt is the perfect weight for fall. Each hoodie was hand-signed by the woman who made it, and each maker receives fair wages, education, and childcare benefits.

Socks to Fight Hunger

Fun socks are always in fashion, and these socks provide 6 meals with every purchase.

Scotch Ale After Shave Gel

This is a customer-favorite in the fall and winter. This after shave gel is made with hops from Michigan breweries, and the gel is soothing and moisturizing—perfect for the cooler air. The scent is warm, rich, and masculine.

For Home

Coffee First Mug

Everyone has a favorite coffee mug, and this is mine (and my husband’s). It’s large enough to hold a big pumpkin spice latte, and it’s thick enough to keep the coffee hot for quite a while. Every mug provides a donation to charity: water.

Kuni Bowl

I’m updating my tablescape this season with goods that tell a story. The Kuni Bowl is one of my favorites, because it’s handmade by artisans in Kenya, and it’s classic enough to anchor a variety of other décor.

Pumpkin & Chai Candle

This list wouldn’t be complete without a candle recommendation. The Pumpkin & Chai Candle is the first seasonal scent from a new line called The Light Candle. Everything you love about the pumpkin spice latte (except the caffeine) is captured in this candle. Every candle is made from 100% soy wax, eco-friendly wicks, and phthalate-free essential oils and fragrance oils. Every purchase provides a donation to support refugees.

Make an Impact

Every item on this list is available at Society B, where we also donate 10% of all purchases (not just profits) to charity.
