Looking for the perfect gift for Christmas? This year will be different, shopping has moved online and searching for the perfect gift can still take endless hours!  Fear not we got you covered.

The  past year we’ve all been cooped up, and most of us are looking for things to do. To make things easier for you, we decided to help and have put together an exciting list of Fair Trade Certified gift ideas to keep you out of trouble this Christmas. 

Finding something perfect for your loved one that is both ethically and fairly made is yet another challenge. 

We’ve compiled an amazing list that are sure to entertain, and are Fair Trade  which means they emit good vibes😉. Buying Fair Trade means contributing to building strong economies, healthy and just societies and living within the limits of what our environment can sustain. The perfect gift emits the best vibes made with good intention. 

Here are some of our faves this year.

  1. Tie & Dye gifts by the Good Tee- A gift is always more special when it is handmade with love and we make it extra fun with our amazing Fair Trade Certified tees along with our natural dye kits.
