Gifts With a Cause

Make your gift budget work double duty by choosing fair trade products that help support impoverished men and women across the globe. We’ve put together a few gift ideas perfect for your bridesmaids, wedding party, or family! Here’s a few of our favorites:

One Mango Tree provides income for women in war-torn Northern Uganda. They sell the cutest purses, bags, aprons, oven mitts and beaded jewelry just for starters. If you like Vera Bradley, you’ll like this!

Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters sells organic fair trade coffee purchased from a family coffee bean farmers in Brazil. They make it a point to pay well above the established Fair Trade Standard prices. {Then they roast the coffee right in Oak Cliff, it’s delicious!} You can sign yourself or a loved one up for a coffee subscription – and they deliver!

Worldcrafts works with 70 different artisan groups in 38 countries to provide fair trade products. We love the scarves and gorgeous table cloths!

Toms for every pair of their shoes you buy, Toms will give a pair to a child in need. Comfy and cute, these would be great to change into at your reception! {We especially love the sparkly white ones on the left.}
