Shop with a purpose this holiday season.
This year, we could all use a little more compassion. For loved ones, for strangers, for people whose lives are connected to ours, even if simply through the products we buy. We don’t know what the new year will bring, but this year has brought us back to the heart of the holiday season: to embrace the power in the simplest acts of care and kindness.
When you give a fair trade gift this holiday season, you’re making a conscious choice to support the wellbeing and livelihoods of essential workers, supporting fair and responsible business, and sharing these values with your loved ones. In this guide, you’ll find gift ideas for everyone on your list: the essential and everyday heroes, the future change makers—you’ll even find gifts that support small businesses, businesses with diverse ownership, and women-owned businesses, as well as gifts that are thrifty and conscious.
While you’re in planning mode, you can also find holiday meal inspiration in our Holiday Recipe Guide, which has dozens of recipes for mains, sides, drinks, desserts, and more, all centered around Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients.
