The holiday season is officially here! And while it may not look the same as years past, the sentiment is still the same. It’s a time for spreading love and good cheer, for being thankful and for spending time with loved ones (whether in person or virtually). It’s also a time for giving.
When you’re choosing gifts this year, consider shopping fair trade. A few weeks ago, we talked about the benefits of fair trade, and how each purchase helps fight poverty and hunger. By choosing a fair-trade gift, you are giving your loved one a unique, handcrafted piece and supporting farmers and artisans in developing countries. If that doesn’t embody the holiday spirit, then what does?
Read below to find fair-trade gifts for everyone on your list this year.
# 1 – Best Gift on a Budget
The holidays can be expensive, but you don’t have to break the bank to find the perfect gift. Our night lights are a great option for
White Elephant Exchanges, Secret Santa at the office or as a fun stocking stuffer. The night lights come in three styles and a variety of colors, so there’s something for everyone. Choose from more than 25 different options for only $21 each.
# 2 – Best Gift for Someone with a Green Thumb
Some of us struggle to keep cacti alive, while others manage to grow small jungles indoors and out. If you have a friend or relative with a green thumb, a garden stake might be the thoughtful gift you’re looking for. With an assortment of different styles—from butterflies to flamingos—you can choose a piece that’s tailored to your loved one’s interests.
# 3 – Best Gift for the Musically Inclined
If you have a musician in the family, picking out the right music gadget or accessory might be over your head (or just simply out of the budget). Whether your loved one is a trained musician or someone who just loves music, give them a gift that reminds them of their passion year-round. The Music Wall Décor Large Musical Notes is a large and lively piece that has a copper finish giving it an aged and oxidized look. Or, if there’s a specific instrument that’s close to your loved one’s heart, check out the Guitar Player, Sax Player or Violin Player. These pieces are adorned with capiz shell, which will add some sparkle to their lives even after the holidays are over.
# 4 – Best Gift for the Animal Lover in Your Life
Looking for the puurrrfect gift for an animal lover? Give them something that will bring a smile to their face long after the holiday season has ended. There’s the Sea Turtle Wall Décor Group of Five for your environmentalist friend who’s into saving the turtles, the Hummingbird Wall Décor for the bird watcher in the family or the Cat Wall Décor Lying Down for everyone’s favorite cat lady. We promise that your loved one will think these gifts are the cat’s meow.
# 5 – Best Gift for That Person Who is Hard to Shop For
We all have one. That person who is impossible to shop for. Maybe it’s your picky aunt or a friend who seems to have everything they need. No need to stress though. We have a gift that appeals to everyone—our mini lamps. We’ve all been spending more time indoors lately and a mini lamp is the perfect way to brighten a room and add a little color to the space. The mini lamps are available in four styles and an array of colors, so even your picky aunt will be happy. In a year full of change, cancelled plans and unexpected twists and turns, it’s understandable if you have a case of the holiday blues. Instead of concentrating on the things we can’t control, let’s focus on the things we can. Whether we’re with them or not, we can give thoughtful gifts that bring joy to our loved ones, and by shopping fair trade, we can show compassion and support for others who may not be as fortunate as we are.
From all of us at Eangee Home Design, we hope you have a safe and happy holiday season.
