The Hot List gone pink in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (Picture:

The Hot List has gone pink this week in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, allowing you to buy enviable goodies while donating to important causes.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign in October, organised by major breast cancer charities to show support for people affected by the disease, and raise awareness and funds for research and care.

Inspired by the cause, we’ve rounded up the best pieces to shop that each give a little back, from reusable shopping bags to flavoured gin, quirky candles and floral tea towels. There is something for just about everyone.

Think pink, get inspired and take a scroll to help those in need…

1. Clean Deodorant Balm Palmarosa + Mandarin 55g, £12.50, The Natural Deodorant Co
