Fair Trade Gift Ideas, Part 2

Such cute Thank You notes!

Yesterday I posted a little list of gifts I loved and have personally purchased or received.  This is part two of my Fair Trade Gift Ideas post.  It’s made of things I found and just think are cute, but haven’t seen in real life.  It includes some things from Ten Thousand Villages, which not only has an online store, but a physical store in Pasadena!

Literally just saw this style in a non-fair trade store for the same price.

I feel like I see this style everywhere.

Such fun colors. Seriously looks like Pottery Barn to me.

Maybe I like this one more?

Ok, this is a bit fancier and pricier, but it feels like it'd be on HGTV.

There are other wood puzzles and chess sets, but I think the heart is cute.

We have a patio and my husband grows all sorts of things. This is a good size for thyme or any other herb.

One final idea:  I love giving in someone’s honor by buying from a Gift Catalog from World Vision, Empowering Lives International, Heifer International, or Compassion.  If you get an animal based gift, you can tack on a cute stuffed version of the same animal to go with the card.

What’s missing?  I’d love other recommendations!

    ~And, lastly…Love 146, another organization that fights child sex slavery & exploitation, that “gifts” prevention &/or aftercare on someone’s behalf…super cool.
