Fair Trade Holiday Gifts

21st November, 2008 - Posted by Tex Dworkin - No Comments


So we’ve just composted our deflated carved pumpkins and we haven’t even indulged in Thanksgiving trimmings yet, so why are we talking about the holidays already? Well, we’re just so excited about the exciting new combination of holiday gift ideas that we couldn’t wait to share them with you! So visit our Holiday section today and be among the first to browse our newly assembled collection of gift items.

Some of our favorite items?

First, there are these Embroidered Snowflake Cards from Handmade Expressions. They’re made from recycled cotton rag paper and each is hand-embroidered. The intricate work results in this amazing product guaranteed to wow anyone receiving a holiday note from you.

How about counting down to the holidays the Fair Trade Way this year? The Fair Trade Divine Advent Calendar is now and stock. Each of the 24 days has a Fair Trade Divine milk chocolate heart that will tickle the taste buds of young and old alike. Divine chocolate is sourced from farmer-owned cocoa cooperative Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana. Be sure to get yours now because last year they sold out before you could say December.

Celebrate the celebration of lights with Global Exchange’s own Hand-Painted Menorah. Brought to you in partnership with the workshop of Guillermo O. Reyes in San Ignacio, El Salvador and the Tin Marin Children’s Museum in San Salvador. Twenty percent of the profits from this project will be reinvested back in the San Ignacio schools and fifty percent will be used to send the children of San Ignacio to the Tin Marin Children’s Museum in San Salvador. Don’t fret, we also have Beeswax Chanukah Menorah Candles to accompany this lively item.

Looking for some stocking stuffers? Check out our stock stuffer section with items under $30 and have an invaluable impact on small-scale farmers and artisans groups all over the world.

So, this holiday, give gifts that give back and let your dollar go a long way. Happy Holidays everyone.
