For the tiny tots…

Story tees from Off Our Chests are all about telling the world that we’re okay just as we are. Choose from messages like “Not Photoshopped” and “When I Grow Up I Want to Be Me.” For every story tee purchased, Off Our Chests donates one book to a girl in need.





For your little sis…

For those in recovery or those who have been personally touched by eating disorders…

This 18” heart locket opens to reveal two of your personal photos and comes with a tag engraved with the National Eating Disorders Association logo.


These Goodbye Ed, Hello Me® charms were created by best-selling author Jenni Schaefer and jewelry designer Sue Gillerlain. The collection “is meant to continue to bring awareness to eating disorders and also remind wearers and gift-givers that life beyond an eating disorder is not only achievable, but opens up a world of possibilities,” says Schaefer, who speaks publicly around the world about her own battle with an eating disorder. 10% of each purchase supports the National Eating Disorders Association.



For body image activists in the making…

Beauty Redefined launched a successful billboard campaign to get people to take a second look at how we talk about beauty in this culture. Now you can spread their powerful messages far and wide with these cool note cards and stickies.



For the bookworm…

Gurze Books has specialized in distributing eating disorders and body image publications since 1980. They have an inspiring title for everyone on your list, and the National Eating Disorders Association receives a portion of the sales when you use this link.



For anyone you think is “full of awesome”…

“Awesome isn’t something you have, it is something you choose.” Can you think of someone who is choosing awesome and living it in a big way? The Full of Awesome collection from Pigtails Pals has lots of great gift ideas and stocking stuffers including totes, notepads and water bottles.
